Clutch/ up

How much hp will the stock clutch handle on my 2010 SMS. I am at 543 to the tire now at 7psi on my pro charger d1sc. I am about to add fuel pump and pulley down yo about 10 psi. The stocker has held up so far, just wanted to know how far I can make it before buying a $1500.00 clutch?

I am putting 540 to the wheels with my Vortech at 7 psi. I replaced my clutch just over two weeks ago. (I bought a Monster Level 3 from Tick Performance over the Chirstmas Holidays as it was on sale and I new I would need to replace the stock clutch at some point.) I had no "real" issues other than the pedal sticking to the floor when dumping my clutch - mostly a fluid issue as noted in several threads here. When I got a look at the factory clutch (again I did not really abuse it), I was literally one good burn out away from the thing disintegrating. Your milage may vary, but with that much power, I would say sooner rather than later!

Just wondering how you like your Monster #3 clutch?

So far I really like it. The car is not daily driven, so I have a few more mile to break it in. I like the fact it is more responsive. Not nearly as far as the stock clutch to engage it. I am looking forward to letting the clutch go at 2300/4000 rpms and see how it responds. When I bought it through Tick Performance, Joey at Tick told me that if it started to make funny noises to take it to an empty parking lot, rev the motor to 6k and let the clutch go (to deglaze it). I am pretty sure 2300 and 4k won't bother it a bit. Also, I had a small technical issue that Steve from SLP/Monster was incredibly helpful and quick to respond. Not sure there is a better buy on the market for that price!

I'd recommend our 3.

Adjust your driving habits slightly and you will never get the "funny noise" you are describing.

Steve,

The "funny noise" would come from my driving habits. You are correct! Trying to adjust them now. Learning to "drive it like I stole it" and not like a p#**y! Thanks for the help and support! And just for reference, thanks for the stickers! (Yes - I am that guy!).
