    Default Stage 1 or stage 2

    so im buying a clutch and want to know is there going to be any advantage to buying a Stage 2 Clutch over a Stage 1 i mean i can tell a difference on the clutch disk the stage 2 look way more durable and its only $20 more than a stage one just wanting to know which would be better for a stock 7MGE with just intake and exhaust?

    To be brutally honest, a bone stock Toyota/Aisin clutch and pressure plate will be more than sufficient for all but the most radical GE builds (think NA-T)
    Part out is done for the time being.

    This. The w58 clutch/PP package will be plenty to hold the torque of a NA 7m with intake/exhaust. Just don't put on some 10.5" slicks and try a drag launch.

    On Autopartsway.com (and .ca) they list two Asin oem clutch replacement discs. One has coil spring dampeners and the other has rubber puck dampeners.

    Anyone on here tried the rubber puck disc? How is it for smoothness/engagement and daily driving?

    (sorry I don't mean to thread-jack, just figured I'd ask since the topic is clutches for relatively stock NA 7m).
