I would probably recommend the TRD one over any other brand since toyota makes it themselves...

Thanks for that. I was going to write which TRD because I'm still in a never ending search for the perfect clutch. More like, I'm absolutely confused from people saying this and that and don't get that get this.

With all of that aside, why do you write TRD Japan, by the way?

if you like the smell of clutch often, and want to relearn how to drive your car. plus tie it in with a twm short throw and never can have a dd, because no one can drive ur car, otherwise it holds up great


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

TRD japan takes a beating without slipping.

pressure plate is stronger and the clutch disk is better...

the TRD USA clutch is just a differnt pressure plate, the TRD Japan clutch has the pressure plate and clutch disk.

the only time i'd really change a clutch would be:

-going from a low HP to high power mod, such as getting turbo'd, you need a stronger clutch.

-racing a lot with launching

-stock clutch is slipping, if your gonna change it, might as well upgrade while your at it.


TRD clutches are stronger than OEM ones, and still offer amazing driveability.

if you get a turbo, you dont want the TRD clutch, you want something like a 3 puck...

anything with a street disk wont last long before it starts to slip, and you need a really strong pressure plate...

turbo, i'd go stage 3 or more.
