Default Your thoughts on a new clutch?

I just read chromenut's good fortunes with a LUK clutch.

I was wondering what other clutches have been used. We have always used centreforce clutches when we need to replace and upgrade. The pt should be due for a new clutch, I thought I would start shopping now.

Any recommendations or thoughts, for a NA PT?

For a stock n/a the stock clutch is probably just fine.
a lot of the turbo guys are running Spec clutches.

Neon guys run when they hear centerforce or Spec-
IMHO, you'd be better to take your chances go to junkyard and pull a used one from '96-'99 Neon.

What they're using is:

Mopar NEW PT clutch
Mopar New'01-'03 2.7 T-850 Clutch
(SRT clutch will only work if it's been modded)
Audi Turbo clutch (require the'95 flywheel)
Stock Neon '95 clutch and just replace disc with a copper kwick lock

Here's the thread if you have about an hour: PT and 2.7 Stratus Clutch information

Bottom line, don't buy Spec or centerforce,, please!

Luk is great!
