They deep freeze everything and it realigns the molecules in the parts and makes them stronger and more durable.

If you're not turbo'ed or anything, just use a stock replacement Exedy clutch.

I dont know why more people dont use act. I have an act 6 puck, solid hub, hd pressure plate and have no problems at all. I know ademan uses an act too. They make quality products and they arent uber expensive.

depends on what your doing with the car and how long you plan on owning it. Personally I wouldnt dump $400 into a clutch on a car this old that I only planned to drive A to B. Id be hard pressed to spend more then $100. A stock clutch properly driven on could probably last the life of the car

I think alot of us have much newer and nicer cars for the mundane daily driver duties. I think alot of us are just like me, and still owning these cars out of love and there just a toy. Plus a stock replacement clutch wouldnt last on such a big turbo. lol
