I got mine from Titan and it didnt come with a new throw out bearing either. Unfortunately I installed it without a new one and now I have a nice chirping sound at idle.

which rps clutch would you recommend if mainly daily driving, occasional racing. I'm also going to get a 50shot, but use only on once or twice on the weekends

"MAX" Pressure Plate w/ Street Disc

These kits include a stock OEM disk and a "Max" RPS blue pressure plate. The OEM disk provides for a stock like engagement, however, with the increased clamping force from the pressure plate, much greater holding power is achieved.


----------------

Thats the one I have and I like it alot. They kinda scared me when they said 60% more pressure increase but it feels just a lil stiffer then stock and has great engagement.

Go with the TRD Japan, it's a great combo and Fidanza actually makes it...

It's easy to drive and holds up pressure I've had that combo on for almost a year, it survived my 75 shot of n2o and is holding up nicely under my current boost.

I looooooooove it

you can see the rubber boot that the clutch fork enters into the tranny case, pop it back with a screw drive and spray some lith grease right onto the TOB...works for every car with a slightly squeeky TOB....

Hmm, I wouldn't think that would work on the TOB, since it's sealed.

that flywheel and the TRD clutch makes a good combination
