So, any suggestions as to what I should get?
Racing, performance, brands???

it's an 89 turbo, and it's my dd.

Like to get the best bang for my buck, and cheapest if possible, on a very tight budget.

well if you plan on doing anything over 300 hp you might wanna get something better than stock.

I would reccomend just spending the money now, and leave yourself room to go up in performance. I know you are on a budget, but pulling the tranny once for a good clutch is easier than pulling it twice to upgrade. I went with the RPS 3200lb pressure plate and 6-puck disc. It leaves me PLENTY of room for more performance. I would recommend at least a Spec Stage 3. But as you said you are on a budget. Just get the best you can afford.

A stock PP and stock disk will hold 400 rwhp/tq. A stock PP and 6 puck will hold a little over 500rwhp/torque.
Great!

My experience differs in that my stock clutch gave out at about 320rwtq, and was not heavily worn or improperly broken in. I think your numbers would be legit for a 2500lb car but not a 3500lb MK3.

I think weight does play a small part in it but I have dynoed at both power levels were weight doesn't matter. When I did have slippage with both setups it always started in 4th gear, both times at only 2 psi more than I ran on the dyno.

This is going to cost, but if you cut corners you do it again.Why get a car that takes lots of money to get going, and then have a low budget to repair it. Tight budgets and MKIII's only end up in failure or sales. That said get a cheap replacement clutch and be done. Also don't modify the car because it will take more than a tight budget to keep it going. :1poke:
