Which style of pressure plates are yall using? The very tired one that's in my car car now is the Borg&Beck style, going back with the Diaphram style, kinda curious how it will do

I also ran an RXT twin plate unit from McLeod, no issues with it. The difference in pedal feel is amazing. Had a centreing issue with the bellhousing that pretty much destroyed it, so Ive now gone with a custom twin plate setup from Western Clutches, local mob here. It is even better than the McLeod unit, but also a fair bit pricier.

I’m running a centerforce diaphragm behind my 6bbl and 18 spline, 3:54 rear. It’s a great setup, tho some may not like the diaphragm style, I find no problems.

It is all function of car weight, power, gearing, that determine clutch plate pressure needed to make it work and more importantly, live more than a couple months. More pressure needed means more leg strength to make it work. Once past a certain point, twin disc clutch is useful to save your leg

Looks like a really stout diaphragm clutch plate. That should do the job fine.
Bought it from Mancini because they’re only about an hour away from me. I did buy all the other rebuild stuff from Brewers, because Wayne helps me on a lot of stuff, and I sell all my extra 4 speed stuff to him. Everybody got a piece of cake from me, and I got a sweet setup!
