Default Is the exedy a piece of crap? Why yes it is!

I got a exedy twin plate clutch at about 15000 miles, got 29000 miles on it now its fn toast. after only 11000 miles on the clutch and it's toast, that's rediculous. tried bleeding the clutch system to see if that was it. no that's not it. tried adjusting the clutch, well im adjusting it every half day now. i can hardly get the car into gear, and when i do a fourth gear pull my rpms skyrocket like a madman on a sugar high at about 4200 grand just when i build full boost, and let's not even talk about 5th gear, it's slipping like a mo fo. the car only has like 350 ft/lbs of torgue and has been taken to the track once. what a piece!!! im also going to 600ft/lbs in about a month, now i don't trust the exedy clutches.. what kind of clutch will easily handle the power that im going to have?

I had a stage2 burn up in 10k, I switched to clutchmaster and have been happy since, and i had to put in a new flywheel too since the exedy was completely heat soaked.

Maybe improper install?? I have installed quite a few twin disc's without issues. One customer has 100+ mid to low 11 second passes on his and it is still going strong.

Warranty on Exedy?

I know a guy that totally slicked an Exedy hyper single in ONE DAY. He wasn't putting out but 50-60***37; of it's rated torque holding power. The flywheel was the prettiest shade of blue you've ever seen. Warranty???? Not so much.

yeah, unfortunately i bought the car from someone else, who had already put about 5000 miles on it, so he's the one who probably screwed me over. damn it!!! well i need a triple plate anyways so that's what im going to do. hopefully exedy can do something for me though!!! I hope they will respond with kindness.

do you know if the installer removed the valve in the slave cylinder? if not then theres a very good chance that was the problem. i installed a hyper single in my FXT 6 speed swap and it worked great. installed a hyper twin in a customers car and he is having great results with the superzilla turbo from DB.

whatever you switch to make sure the relief valve is removed. or you will smoke another clutch

huh that's kinda of weird that you mention that now, cause i just got my slave and master cylinder replaced, and this clutch thing happened like a month later. do you think it's the shops fault then? also too, how come it would smoke the clutch if this wasn't removed??

the valve is in there to keep you from completely dropping the clutch. If they are left in the Exedy( others probably) you will slip the clutch and most likely burn it up in no time.

i dont really know about the ACT's i had one in my RST and wasnt a fan of the high pressure plate. but thats just my opinion. for the stage 1 exedy you should be fine. the valve is in there so you want hammer the clutch and shock the tranny. i believe subaru started to put these in late 02 since everyone was killing the trannys. pretty much all you need to do is unscrew the two halves of the slave cyl and pull the guts out.
