I dont believe I have ever seen a pilot bearing fall apart. Hope that clutch works good for you. I am always nervous about buying ebay stuff anymore. I have had too much fall apart too quickly. I bought a spec, but it could just be paying for a name/

Most people are the same way. I don't mind and trying out unproven or frowned upon eBay stuff. If the stuff works then hopefully more people would follow.

I was the same way a year ago. But everything I bought from ebay and put on my truck has had to be replaced already, so I just spend the extra now. Stuff like clutches and starters and what not are probably different though. If it didnt work they couldnt keep selling it.

Well then I'll probably be the first one to run this 6-puck clutch setup. The truck should be at 99% tomorrow afternoon.

Im also in the market for a better clutch, im going to pp my head and intake and replace header and exhaust with a more freely flowing one.

So what's the culprit guys?

I haven't launched or did any burnouts but this clutch seems to hold 16 psi fine so far.

The spec stage 3+ clutch I have is the best clutch I have ever used.
