Competition Clutch Kits for Subaru, Saab Engines Now Available at Turn 14 Distribution

Oct 26, 2020

Competition Clutch, Inc. (CCI) has released several clutch kits for the EJ25T and FA20DIT engine with 5-speed and 6-speed transmissions used in Subaru models (06-14 WRX, 15-17 WRX, 01-06 Forester, 07-12 Legacy GT) and the 05-06 Saab 9-2X, which are now available at Turn 14 Distribution.

CCI’s new clutch kits for Subaru (WRX, Forester, Legacy GT) and Saab 9-2X models include all components for installation: pressure plate, clutch disc, flywheel, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, alignment tool, pressure plate bolts. The increased surface area provides a clutch with smoother engagement and 136 percent more torque-handling capacity over the original equipment unit, the company said.

There are three CCI clutch kits available for this application. The pressure plate’s diaphragm fingers are heat-treated for increased clamping force — 60 percent higher than stock — consistent pedal feel and a slight increase in clutch pedal pressure. These clutch kits bolt directly onto the factory OEM flywheel.

The Stage 2 clutch kit holds up to 300 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, offers smooth engagement at low engine speeds and provides improved shift speed and drivability in performance situations.

The Stage 3 clutch kit is rated to hold up to 350 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, which is a 231-percent increase in holding power over the stock clutch. The Stage 4 clutch kit holds up to 400 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, making it easy to hold high horsepower.

2100 Series Stage 2 clutches employ an organic disc with steel-backed lining to provide increased burst strength and higher heat resistance. The 2600 Series Stage 3 clutches offer an 8-puck segmented ceramic disc to further improve heat resistance and ease of engagement under demanding conditions. 1620 Series utilizes a 6-puck ceramic disc for less moment of inertia higher heat resistance and faster shifts.
