Do I "need" a Clutch that can take 660-755 of torque? Depends on how far i'm looking to push this 4 cylinder. Technically I dont "need" a clutch that high, or even "need" to own this car all together. I'm very aware that a 6 puck is not meant to be daily driven on, and I do believe I said my car was not a daily driver either so I am not worried about daily driving a 6 puck clutch.

From my understanding you dont have to have a twin disk that goes as high as you mentioned, sure they do but I do believe that exedy's and other brands offer lower holding torque capacity. I am hoping someone with real world twin disk experience can chime in about pedal pressure between a single disk traditional clutch and a twin disk kit designed to hold the same amount of torque?

I run a twin plate in my Porsche and while it'll hold plenty of power it's awful in traffic!

Probably from the rev up and down while inching forward etc. It’s been a few years since I’ve done that research.

The driveshaft basically isn't doing anything in that situation. I'm not trying to argue with you at all. I was just trying to be funny. The flywheel/clutch revs with the motor. The DS does not. It just moves if the car moves so it's not going to have any effect on that issue. Just like lightweight wheels or brakes wouldn't either.

There have been documented issues when using a CF DS, 12lbs lightweight flywheel, and a lightweight crank pulley. They have fixed it by going with a heavier lightweight flywheel, return to the OEM flywheel, return to the OEM crank pulley or to a Fluidampr crank pulley.

Error on my part, meant crank-shaft. Rotational mass meant of the engine, any sensors and the codes they might trigger.

ADDED: Sure I've read of cases where lightweight rotating assembly, (the parts that should be balanced together) created problems that were cured by swapping those parts - sometimes with heavier parts. Make me wonder how far you have to go, IE very lightweight rotating assembly, strong cam springs and large cams, and tune, or how poor a job you have to do overall to make that happen - cause I believe some people run all that and don't have problems. Anyway . .

the DS will not affect them.

Porshe parts are always so pretty! Need one just to have a reason to buy them!

NJ-Kiter? You doin the install?

Thanks guys, If i were to not do a twin disk i would shoot for a full faced clutch as the 6 puck though is great for what its advertised for does not last as long as other kinds. Yes mheyman i would be doing the install myself.

I've been driving an ACT 6puck + stock flywheel for 40,000 miles now and it is very tolerable for me
