Hello I have a 96 12 valve with 4k gsk and a ground and slid plate in future might advance timing what kind of clutch should I run? All I really plan on doing to motor performance wise
How quick can you shift compared to stock? And did you debur and graphite the inputIf you're going single then yes, the ceramics are grabby. Dual disc though, the ceramic is very smooth once broke in, much smoother than I expected.
:agree2: I hardly ever try to shift fast because of that. Most of the time it's clutch in, pull it out of gear, put pressure on the next gear and wait for it to slide in on it's own. Only time it ever gets forced at all is if I'm racing somebody. Which is not all that often honestly.Fast shifts destroy synchros!
I'm a big fan of my Valair 13" Kevlar/Ceramic. Dan and his guys are great to deal with.
With practice I've got to where I can shift it pretty quick, but still nothing like I could stock. I've found if racing from a full stop, basically they win until I can get into third, then I can start to actually go fast. For one, it revs out so fast in 1st and 2nd I just can't get very far in each gear, and also since there's not much load I don't build very much boost. Secondly, 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd are slow shifts. (Probably my trans I don't see how it could be clutch related.) 3rd to 4th is pretty instant, and 4th to 5th is pretty fast too. I will say shifting fast feels horrible. In the higher gears it does go in pretty quick but it feels like I'm having to force it way too hard. I'm sure my syncros hate me.
