Many better upgrades to make. Its a good one if you're pushing a lot of HP or if youre clutch is slipping, but on a fairly new car with a decent transmission, I'd spend the money on something else.

Basically you can get a beefeir clutch for more clamping force to the flywheel.usually requires more effort too.... I wouldn't be worried about the clutch till you need to replace it but i would say get a short throw shifter, clutch quadrant, etc. I think Horse has a steeda quadrent hes trying to sell.

the ability to NOT be able to feather the clutch (alot of spin) lol if your clutch is not slipping then you should not worry about it, if you get a really stiff clutch you wont be able to feather it to take off so you will wind up "dumping it" and having alot more spin/alot less control over the clutch as it engages.

three stupid questions im sure. 1) what is a clutch quadrant? 2) what is a throw bearing? and three what good does this do?

The clutch quadrant is more for a heavy duty clutch, The stock ones are plastic, and after a while they bend causing inconsistant clutch engagement/ missed shifts. Just a little insurance if you get a heavy duty clutch or like to shift hard.
The throw out bearing pushess on the "fingers" of the pressure plate causing the clutch to dis-engage.

well you know how on your stock clutch you can kind of ride on it as it engages you dont have to just let it out all at once, you have a kind of 2 inch area when letting in/out on the clutch petal that the clutch is not engaged/not engaged with an aftermarket you dont have that much area its very stiff and the clutch is usually engaged or not, no room to play really lol

upr or steeda both do the same job and work just as good, just make sure you get a firewall adjuster to take all the slack out of the petal or flop or what ever you want to call it.

if the petal is to high you can get an adjuster kit from maximum motorsports.com to fix it but you definatly want to take all the slack out of the clutch petal so its frim at the top and has half an inch of travel before the cltuch starts to slip/go into neutral.
