ACT street clutch is probably the best all around clutch you can buy aftermarket.

Honestly I think it depend son what else you plan on modding though. IF you plan on turbocharging your car you might want to consider a different kind of clutch if you plan on going high boost. Just depends but you really can't go wrong with an ACT Street.

I don't recommend the blitz clutch for daily driving with close to stock tq figures. Get an ACT or TRD clutch.

Just a question, I need someone to say how much a TRD clutch and install from Toyota w/o warranty would be or stock clutch. I heard many numbers but I need a true feeling on this from someone who has gotten this done.

Yah installation and the purchase of a stock clutch is rediculous. Comes out to basically 1200 dollars and I can't imagine why anybody would ever do that. Complete rip off.

I was reading your question and I'm not quite sure what you are trying to ask but anyways. I got a TRD clutch and it was fairly expencive but not compare to the stock one, which is 220$, I think. Only 80$ over the stock clutch price that the dealershop quoted me. The TRD clutch was quoted at 450$ or 420$, don't remember now.I got it at this place
http://www.camelbacktoyotaparts.com/prodlist.asp?NodeID=71415&TopID=70001
The good thing is I didn't have to pay taxes on it since I'm in CA and the dealership is in AZ.
Regarding the install the dealership quoted me 750$ for the install with everything out the door (with no money left in your pocket) independent shops would install it for a bit less but I got lucky I'm going through a friend and I got it for 400$ So my suggestion shop around the shops maybe pull over couple of boys with riceburners ask them around maybe they could suggest a place where you can get it done for cheaper but I think you won't be able to get for less than 600$ depends on where you live obviously but it's the labor that kills you. Hell, you can even drive to Mexico to install it smile

I say Clutch Masters, depends on what you are going to do to the car stock ,turbocharge, supercharge, etc.
fx200, fx300 or 400
