First off Maperformance is great. I only get my parts here because customer service,shipping/handling is second to none. Everything arrives before/or on time every time without being damaged in transit.
Second, my competition clutch stage 3 full disk clutch kit is a great clutch upgrade while maintaining stock like driveablity. I can barely tell a difference in petal pressure but under a load this clutch grabs! I also installed the comp clutch light weight flywheel. I'm very happy with these purchases and would recommend the same to any evo x owner who's under 500whp/tq. Map did a fine job selecting all of the fluids necessary to get this job done as well. I even have a little left over in case I need to top everything off in the future!
I installed this clutch about 300 miles ago and am beyond impressed so far. First 100 miles were a bit brutal but it has calmed down a lot. I can't wait until I'm fully out of break in to see what it's all about. I bought the car with a slipping clutch (few thousand off the deal, can't pass that up) so the car will be all new to me also. Not really sure about stiffness compared to stock because the stock clutch was trashed when I bought the car. However it's nowhere near as stiff as my mini cooper if that says anything. Very pleased and as of now I would purchase again if I had to.
installed about a week ago in break in process at the moment but so far the clutch feels great. Also MAP has a great customer service and everything arrived on time. a hassle free transaction.
As a follow up to my previous review of this clutch, this is not really working out all that well for the price. If like me you drive a modified Evo X as your daily driver..this is probably not the best clutch for that setting. I'm at just around 5500 miles, 4 months after installation and the clutch plate is beginning to slip getting into first and after longer drives in low gears just during normal relaxed daily driving at the speed limits. I waited 800 or so miles before smashing on this clutch and even then no maybe 1 or 2 dig races (and no launch) and the rest is just spirited driving and highway runs. For a clutch to begin failing so soon under the same driving conditions my stock clutch held for 35k miles..not really impressed. Your mileage may vary, maybe I just got a lemon disc. But replacing the clutch again is going to cost me another $1600+ so this year instead of buying wheels/turbo+tune I'm replacing my clutch twice. Not cool.
Had this clutch installed about 3 weeks ago paired with Competition's lightweight flywheel. Now that I'm outside break-in the clutch isn't quite as grabby as day 1 anymore, has mellowed out a little but still grabs very solid at the end of the engagement point. Pedal feel is barely more than stock but definitely a few pounds heavier. Very little chatter if any, unless I slip it a lot getting into 1st. Definitely recommend pairing this with the ACT Monoloc as this is a pull-type clutch in the Evo and would severely diminish the reliability of the throw out without the Monoloc helping reinforce the assembly. Overall clutch is great, I can't say enough good about it, I was really surprised that with this clutch having a much heavier pressure plate clamp force, and it being a stage3 that it would drive so smoothly and is as easy to enjoy for both the daily grind as well as taking my car to do some AutoX and spirited driving. MAP is at this point one of the only places I shop online because of their consistently better selection, and very reasonable pricing. Shipping was fast and everything came well packed to avoid damages during shipping.
At about 27,000 miles, my stock clutch gave it up under 365wtq/340whp. (only on that setup for a few thousand, most of it's life stock or at 315hp/300tq)... After extensive searching I decided on this specific clutch. Largely because I was reading about a guy who ran this clutch on a setup close to 700whp and launch after launch, he had the best results with this clutch. After talking with my local tuner/installer Tobz in Denver (he's awesome! Can't overrate this guy) explained to me that he had better luck with the ACT kits as far as longevity (15-20k miles if I remember right, 35 being the most he's ever seen, and that was stock). The pedal feel is definitely stiffer than stock. You WILL stall the car a couple times at first, but not bad. Rush hour won't give you Arnold legs, though there is never anything good about traffic. I'm at 51,000, and it's starting to slip under heavy loads. it'll hold WOT in 5th gear (27psi, flat road) if I slowly get there (3500rpm+). However, if i punch it and reach full boost before 3500rpm, SLIIIIP! I was able to get it to slip in 4th too, once. For almost 25,000 miles and 20 months with probably 1-2 dozen launches tops and decent slip rates in city driving holding almost 500 crank torque, I give this clutch a hi 5. To be honest, sometimes I drive very nicely, but with my home-work route being open and secluded, I tend to enjoy my drives ;). I did do a 500 mile break in, but may or may not have done a few pulls during -.-.... Some female driving, but 99% me. Some chatter if I slip the clutch a lot, but usually none. Can't think of anything else. As always, awesome service from MAP. Shouts out to Tobz in Denver too, very good prices and he is also just frickin awesome, honest, experienced and just all around great. I MIGHT give the ACT a shot now, but I'll speak with Tobz and ACT to make that decision. Most likely will end up ordering another one of these.
What an awesome clutch. It has a near stock pedal feel and engagement is not too terrible. It can definitely be daily'd. I did get the light weight flywheel and I did the magnus/ evo ix cmc upgrade and I couldn't be happier. I left leg thanks me as well!! I'm still in the break in period so no hard pulls yet. Would definitely recommend this clutch.
Great Service from MAP and this clutch is great. This is my second Comp Clutch Stage 3. The previous installed screwed up the install pretty bad and I was really not going to buy another since there was a lot of chatter and the clutch pedal was a bit of a pain to push down. Under the worst circumstances the clutch lasted 2.5 years and 30k miles. My new installer installed the new clutch properly and this one drives like butter, zero chatter. If you buy this clutch and you have chatter, IT WAS INSTALLED WRONG. Holds power great and still in the break in period so no hard pulls or launches on this one yet.
...until it started slipping at about 10,000 miles/a little over a year of use. I DD my 2011 Evo X (full bolt-ons, tune), typically in moderate traffic, no launches and little spirited driving - this clutch started to give out after about a year of that kind of use. I'm typically very easy on the clutch, I keep revs below 4k while driving in town and granny shift for the sake of my passenger's comfort.
When it did work, engagement was quick and solid, the clutch pedal felt a little more stiff than stock and overall it felt like a quality product. I'm not happy to have to drop another $1500 to replace this clutch, I expected much longer life with a clutch that claimed 150% tq capacity over stock. Maybe I'm just a bad driver, but I do know the Spec 3+ I had in a previous Evo X with similar modifications lasted over 30k miles longer under the same driving conditions.
After using the Spec 3+ the throwout bearing cage failed. I replaced it with this clutch and so far it has been great. Good for daily driving and holds up to my power. I would pair any clutch with the ACT Monoloc
The throwout bearing on my car committed suicide so I was in the market for a replacement setup as soon as possible as my Evo is my DD. This clutch is beautifully crafted. Installation was seamless, and shipping was great!! I will definitely be using MAP for future purchases.
I bought this clutch after hearing some good reviews on it and I have to say I'm very pleased. It is very street friendly and easy to get used to. There's a little more pedal pressure than stock but that's to be expected. I used it with a stock resurfaced flywheel. Definitely the best clutch for the money for a lightly modded evo x!
Just installed this last weekend, I've drove just over 500 miles on it so far and it feels very similar to stock. I resurfaced the stock flywheel and will be replacing my cmc with the map upgrade kit just for peace of mind next week. Great clutch!
I bought this clutch 3 months ago. I bought it to upgrade my stock clutch. I wanted to buy a clutch that will allow me to keep daily driving my Evo x. The clutch feels a little jumpy in first gear but thats understandable. It takes a little bit of getting used to but is 100% user friendly. I drive a full bolt on car and the clutch handles the power pretty well. I recommend this product.
This clutch and pressure plate are matched to a resurfaced factory flywheel. The engagement and release of the clutch is smooth and comfortable. Surprisingly easy to drive once you get used to the slightly stiffer then stock pedal feel. My mods are full bolt on making around 350whp 340tq and it hasn't had any issues with this power level and I am sure I can throw quite a bit more at it. It launches perfectly with just a little bit of slip and then GO. I recommend this to anyone looking for a budget conscious upgrade and DD feel
500 miles on it and out to the track! It held up very well on three
passes, no smell,
no slippage. Ran 12.6, 12.5 on bolt-ons and tune.
