Clutch Reccomendations for F/I?

Hey Guys,

I have a buddy with a S/C E46 M3. His rear main seal is leaking a bit, so he is going to replace the clutch at the same time. He is currently on OEM clutch, but would like to get something stronger that maintains the stock clutch engagement point and drive ability if possible. He will possibly be selling the S/C set-up to go with the MaxPSI Stage 2 kit later on as well.

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!

I've seen great things from gripforce. And I also use a stage 2 kit from gripforce and their name really does mean GRIP FORCE. The clutch grips so hard it's like brakes lol.

Your best answer to this question will come from MAXPSI directly, so call them.

Call SouthBend about their stage 5. Its not advertised on the website. I believe that MaxPSI uses SB in their build.

I really like my UUC Twin (2) Disc Organic LWF, I'd recommend it.

+1 for GripForce. I have an AA S/C kit and I'm running a GripForce stage 4 clutch without any problems what so ever.
