I will be using this on my 5th Gen Celica GT-S with JDM 3S-GTE Swap, MR2 turbo tranny, intake mod and 3" exhaust. Stock boost for now but I also plan to add a boost controller and bump it up to 12 PSI or so in the near future.

f1 racing makes horrible clutches. my friend went through one within 400 miles and he didnt even abuse it. still in the break in stage. when i was shoping fur a clutch i went on google to serch and read consumer reviews on that clutch. i havent heard a lot of good things. what i do hear about f1 racing though is that they make good flywheels. ive never heard of xtd racing.

I dont know about those clutches, but as far as performance goes, The good ones I know of are exedy, clutch masters, and centerforce. Centerforce clutches also tend to be very affordable.

Can you direct me to a seller of the centerforce clutches?

I've used XTDs on hondas with no problems. Bite hard, and their customer service is actually very good. I DID have one fail on me within 2k miles, and they replaced it for free.

Last one i personally used was a 6-puck unsprung on my DA. Awesome clutch. Bit REALLY hard, never had any issues with it, and i used to beat on that thing daily.

i have the ACT street cltuch setup. It was very affordable. It was around 150 or so. I got it off of ebay tho. I also have a similar set-up as you. I have a jdm 3sgte swap, 20b, 15psi, s53 trans. Let me tell you the clutch is amazing. Its really stong, has good clamping force and never ever slips. I really like it. I never had experience with any other clutch, but i can say that ACT makes good ones.
