We worked with a major clutch manufacturer for over a year to make these clutches a reality. The goal was to build the most friendly Miata clutch on the planet. We've run them in a number of our cars, including the Targa Miata, our "Igor" track car and daily drivers. Many thousands of miles later, we're really happy with the result and so are our customers.
The Level 1 will hold as much torque as the ACT HD, but with a pedal that feels almost like a stock clutch. It`s easy to drive with a smooth take-up and is even easier on your thrust bearing and clutch hydraulics! The Level 1 is rated for 318 lb-ft, and is suitable for turbo and supercharged cars with unmodified engines. This is the one to use with a Stage 1 or Custom Spec turbo on a relatively stock engine.
1.8 size only, although it can be used on a 1.6 if you also use a 1.8 flywheel.
Includes the clutch switch over-ride, pilot bearing, throwout (release) bearing and clutch alignment tool.
We strongly recommend replacing seals while you're in there - they don't go bad too often, but it's a big job to get to them! We also strongly recommend using our installation tool with the rear crank seal, to ensure that you don't cause a problem that didn't exist. Plus, the tool is less than a new seal. Also, please be aware that 5-speed transmissions need the transmission input gasket, but 6-speeds do not.
Note: This clutch was designed for the Miata engine and transmission - we're unable to guarantee fitment with engine swaps, although it's certainly possible. If a stock clutch will work ours should as well, but check with the manufacturer of the kit.
