SouthBend Clutch Kits: Mitsu

We carry a large selection of SouthBend clutch kits to suit virtually any application. Each kit includes a pressure plate, friction disc, throwout bearing, alignment tool.

Details of each kit is as follows:

Stage 1: A beefed up version of the stock clutch with more clamping force and a sprung full-face friction disc. This clutch is recommended for a daily driver with stock or near stock power. Pedal pressure similar to stock. Torque rating 300 ft/lbs.

Stage 2 Daily: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with increased clamping force over stock. Friction disc is an organic disc with a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction to twice that of the stock disc. Pedal pressure similar to stock. Recommended for a daily driver that sees occasional track use. Torque rating 320 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have similar performance to an ACT 2100 w/street disc.)

Stage 2 Endurance: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with increased clamping force over stock and with the fulcrum slightly altered for positive disengagement and quick shifts. The friction disc is of a hybrid design: full-face feramic (sintered iron) lining on the flywheel side and high metal content organic lining on the pressure plate side. Engagement is positive yet buffered due to the high graphite content unique to feramic facings. Pedal pressure similar to stock. Recommended for a daily driver that sees occasional drag use but with emphasis on rally or endurance racing. Torque rating 415 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have performance characteristics somewhere between an ACT 2100 & 2600 with a lighter pedal.)

Stage 2 Drag: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with increased clamping force over stock and modified for a puck-style disc. The friction disc is of a 6-puck design which reduces rotational mass while increasing pressure on the surface of the friction material. Additionally, there is no cushion material between friction linings which helps keep clutch pedal travel short and quick. The friction material is graphite-impregnated ceramic. This compound exceeded all other friction materials when tested for durability, reduced chatter, heat transfer and torque capability. Pedal pressure slightly more than stock. While this clutch CAN be used on a street machine, it is designed and is generally recommended for drag racing. Torque rating 465 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have similar performance to an ACT 2600 w/6-puck disc with a lighter pedal.)

Stage 3 Daily: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with significantly increased clamping force over stock. Friction disc is an organic disc with a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction to twice that of the stock disc. Pedal pressure about 25% stiffer than stock. Recommended for a daily driver that sees occasional track use. Torque rating 400 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have similar performance to an ACT 2600 w/street disc with a lighter pedal.)

Stage 3 Endurance: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with significantly increased clamping force over stock and with the fulcrum slightly altered for positive disengagement and quick shifts. Friction disc is designed for the special needs of a vehicle with circuit racing in mind. Kevlar friction material is used for its unique static-to-dynamic co-efficient ratio at high energy levels which translates to a perfect transition from one gear to the next. Pedal pressure about 25% stiffer than stock. While this clutch CAN be used for spirited daily driving and occasional drag use, it is designed and is generally recommended for rally, endurance racing, clubsport and autocross. Torque rating 450 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have similar performance to an ACT 2600 with a lighter pedal.)

Stage 3 Drag: Comes with a heavy-duty pressure plate with significantly increased clamping force over stock and modified for a puck-style disc. The friction disc is of a 6-puck design which reduces rotational mass while increasing pressure on the surface of the friction material. Additionally, there is no cushion material between friction linings which helps keep clutch pedal travel short and quick. The friction material is graphite-impregnated ceramic. This compound exceeded all other friction materials when tested for durability, reduced chatter, heat transfer and torque capability. Pedal pressure about 25% stiffer than stock. While this clutch CAN be used on a street machine, it is designed and is generally recommended for drag racing. Torque rating 525 ft/lbs. (For comparison, this clutch would have similar performance to an ACT 2900 w/6-puck disc with a lighter pedal.)

Stage 4 Extreme: This is a "build to order" clutch kit intended for cars with HP modifications exceeding the stage 3 parameters. The race engineered pressure plate is modified for maximum plate load. The discs are puck design with sprung and un-sprung options. Friction material options include sintered iron and graphite impregnated ceramic. Engagement characteristics can be abrupt. Hydraulic systems may need enhancing for proper clutch separation. Single mass steel SFI approved flywheels are required for safety. Torque ratings are calculated at time of ordering but are generally in the range of 600+ ft/lbs.
