What are you V6 supercharger folks doing for clutches?

I can't imagine the stock clutch is holding up to the extra abuse?

I just recieved my 9.5 inch twin disc with billett flywheel, pics soon. Getting installed soon too, along with Ideal G master and remote resovoir from JDP. I have the first production unit from RAM and will be doing some testing on it before it is made available to the masses. Either GMHT or Camaro Now may be doing an article on it as well so I have to be cautious of what I can post until we get this done. I will at least try to get a photo ot later, travelling now, All I can say is thats its clutch porn, too bad its all hidden once installed.

Still on the oem clutch. No issues but I have not really pushed it on a track yet. It's all going to depend on how much you are going to push the limits. I have seen V8 clutches being up grade from oem when pushed due to limits on the track. From what I have seen of the V6 clutch it actually is better than most oem's I have seen and replaced.

Stock clutch after a year of being boosted still good for now. All my races are from a roll so not really killing the clutch to back. BUt getting a replacement soon anyway.

Yes but since no one has one yet, no one knows how well they work in our cars.
