We'll I'm since I got my christmas present a little early I'm going to be buying the ACT clutch kit off of the Spec Shop. 269.95 is the cheapest I've found yet. Courtesy Nissan wanted something like 420. Needless to say I laughed out loud.

How much PSI you think this sucker can hold. It claims 360 ft. lb. of torque. I just wondering around how much PSI would it take to make that much.

It should be fine for what you are throwing at it. It's not how much boost it an hold but torque. Basically it will hold what they say it will and 360tq depends on the mods not the amount of boost (as you should know 360tq can be made with a variety of modifications at different amounts of boost).

360 tq should be well over 400 Hp, but like JamesZ said it depends on your mods. Cams and ECU can push torque well ahead of Hp for quite a ways. And we know the VG30 is a torque motor. ;)

It isn't hard to get a VG30ET to about 360tq. How I look at it I would need a new clutch within the next 4 months as I keep moding the car.

Of and 360tq might be attainable on the stock ecu, injectors, and maybe the turbo. So think about your plans in the future then pick the clutch.

I don't plan on modding much further than exhaust and 12 PSI. Until I can park it and keep it from being a daily driver. Eventually I hope to make it non-street-legal;)

As long as you don't plan on doing anything else big to the engine to get power out of it you will be fine.

Most of the people I have seen with 350 Lb Ft are making 300-320 hp.
The VG30ET is a torque monster. I've seen a dyno of 400hp, 460 Lb ft.
unless you are spraying or getting a lot of mods, that clutch should be fine. If you plan to run 11's, get a better clutch.

5 years! it doesn't take as much as you may think to break into the 11's. A turbo upgrade, ECU, fuel, head gaskets, and tire, Maybe a little of the juice and you're there.

Plus a few other little things and yes 11s are possible. Probably 5k in parts will net an 11 sec. 1/4. I'm hoping for 11s by 2006 but until then I will probably have the car in parts in the garage.

The thing is SKD isn't doing anything like you mentioned so he will be fine.

Well yes I realize that but I also have to have it be a reliable everyday car. Once I can get a one or two more cars that I can drive I'll start kicking it up a notch on the Z.
