Thank you. You have rated this product.

Recommended Use: High Performance Street, Autocross, Racing - for applications where quick shifting response is required. Exedy/Daikin Clutch is one of the largest suppliers of both stock OEM and performance aftermarket clutch components.

This complete Exedy Stage 2 clutch kit for the RX8 includes a 3-puck sprung hub, cerametallic compound disc, upgraded pressure plate, replacement throw out bearing, pilot bearing, and a clutch installation alignment tool. The S Metal Disc utilizes low gravity, T5001 Carborich cerametallic material for outstanding heat dissipation and performance. This kit is ideally suited for performance-modified RX8, and the pressure plate features a 1455 lb pressure plate-clamping load.

Combine this clutch kit with a Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel for a complete package. If you thought running through the gears in your RX8 was fun before, just wait until you install a lightweight flywheel! To minimize the installation effort and cost, seriously consider installing your new flywheel during the clutch replacement.

This is a complete RX8 Clutch kit at a super price! If you are considering replacing your clutch assembly with an aftermarket kit, the Exedy components offer a super combination of performance and value. Packaged only as a set, these components are not available separately. Photo shown may not be specific to this application. With any cerametallic clutch system, there will be some compromise of start up drivability as compared to a stock clutch (chatter on light throttle, low rpm start up). This characteristic is generally felt to be acceptable in modified performance cars. Rated to 269 Ft/Lbs of torque.

RX-8 Exedy Application Guide

Good-Win Racing offers several different clutch packages for the RX-8, each intended for a specific application. Use this reference guide to determine the package that best meets your requirements:

Exedy Stage 1 - This is the preferred clutch for street and light horsepower track use. Driveability is similar to the stock clutch with smooth engagement characteristics. Pedal efforts will be slightly higher due to the approx 25% higher clamp loads. The clutch disc is equipped with spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock. Rated wheel torque - 237 ft/lbs.

Exedy Stage 1 HD The Heavy Duty (HD) clutch package features the exact same disc as the Stage 1 package, but this kit is equipped with a more aggressive pressure plate for use with higher horsepower applications. This pressure plate offers higher clamping forces and pedal efforts will be greater due to the approx. 40% higher clamping loads as compared with the stock pressure plate. The clutch disc is equipped with spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock. Rated wheel torque - 296 ft/lbs.

Exedy Stage 2 This kit features a low-inertia cerametallic disc with a sprung hub center for use on "street/strip/weekend racer" applications. These components are intended to handle the abuse of higher-powered modified engines and can typically handle more abuse than stock-type disc assemblies without slipping and fading. The sprung hub center offers ease of engagement vibrations at idle and during acceleration/deceleration. Clutch engagement is very abrupt and best suited for use in racing and high performance driving applications not recommended for street use. Rated wheel torque - 269 ft/lbs.

Exedy Stage 2 HD The Heavy Duty (HD) clutch package features the exact same disc as the Stage 2 package, but this kit is equipped with a more aggressive pressure plate for use with higher horsepower applications. This pressure plate offers higher clamping forces and pedal efforts will be greater due to the approx. 14% higher clamping loads as compared with the Stage 2 pressure plate. The sprung hub center offers ease of engagement vibrations at idle and during acceleration/deceleration. Clutch engagement is very abrupt and best suited for use in racing and high performance driving applications not recommended for street use. Rated wheel torque - 337 ft/lbs.

I got the oil cooler installed and I'm diggin' it! Thanks. (product # 10-10012)

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
