Confused as to what everything means? Below we explain the different types of ACT Clutches, along with the combos we offer. We want you to make the right choice for your application.
ACT Sport Clutch Kit
The ACT Sport clutch kit is designed to be their entry level clutch kit meant for the bolt on enthusiast who wants streetability over performance. With a 10-30 percent increase over stock clamping force and a moderate pedal effort, it is the ultimate in daily driver comfort while retaining the high standards of excellence ACT has set. We have found many customers to prefer the ACT Sport Clutch over a Heavy Duty for both cost and pedal effort for maximum performance with comfortable engagement. These ACT Sport Clutch Kits are perfect for the naturally aspirated Honda, Acura and also does well for moderately modified turbo or supercharged applications.
ACT Heavy Duty Clutch Kit
The ACT Heavy Duty clutch kit is designed to be a "Stage 1" clutch kit. It offers much more holding power than the stock clutch, and can take much more abuse as well. The ACT Heavy Duty does offer a heavier pedal feel than stock. Some people do like this, while others do not. We tend to find people who get used to the heavier pedal feel of the ACT Heavy Duty Clutch say they never want to go back to a softer clutch again. The clutch offers great feedback and response, and puts the driver in a great race position. Sometimes this clutch kit is referred to as an ACT 2100. This designation was originally brought up by the DSM crowd (Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eagle Talon, Plymouth Laser), who referred to this clutch as the ACT 2100, because it offered a 2100lb pressure plate. ACT does not use these designations, and this clutch is known as the Heavy Duty.
We recommend the ACT Heavy Duty clutch kit to anyone who has a completely stock car, all the way to the basic bolt ons. For a Acura Integra or a Honda Civic, we would recommend this clutch for up to full intake, exhaust, and possibly a low boost forced induction system. If you have more modifications, or race your car a lot, we suggest the ACT Xtreme Duty Clutch Kit.
ACT Xtreme Duty Clutch Kit
This clutch kit, is also known as an ACT "Stage 2" clutch kit. The Xtreme duty is made for even more abuse, more horsepower and torque levels, and more holding power over the Heavy Duty. It offers even more pedal pressure, and some people have said the pedal is stiff with this Xtreme duty clutch kit. In DSM circles, this clutch is widely known as the ACT 2600. It was referred to as the ACT 2600 because of it's 2600lb pressure plate.
We recommend the ACT Xtreme duty clutch kit to those who have upgraded turbos, or bolt on turbo kits. This is the clutch you want. Great engagement, great pedal feel, and simply the best all around clutch. This clutch is our favorite!
ACT XXtreme Duty Clutch Kit
The daddy of all ACT clutch kits! If you need holding power, you have found the right clutch. Not for the faint of heart, this clutch will handle most of what you throw at it, and keep asking for more. We love it!
ACT Heavy Duty Twin Disc Clutch Kit
Newly released from our friends at ACT, these twin disc kits are the ultimate in aftermarket and performance clutch technology! Combined with ACT's high performance flywheel, these twin disc clutches are available in Heavy Duty, Xtreme and MaXX Xtreme flavors and combine a significant increase in clamping force with a moderate pedal effort increase.
ACT Xtreme Twin Disc Clutch Kit
The new twin disc offerings from ACT just got serious with the Xtreme Duty Twin Disc Clutch Kit, providing superior torque ratings without the heavy pedal of many other clutch kits. The Xtreme Twin Disc clutch kit features a Heavy Duty pressure plate and two race discs, providing quick engagement and a dramatic increase in torque capacity with a stock-like increase in pedal effort. Clutch engagement with the Twin Disc is quick and harsh and not well suited for street use. SFI certification, ceramic friction materials and increased surface area, makes this clutch very durable for most race applications.
ACT MAXX Xtreme Twin Disc Clutch Kit
Transfer power into motion with ACT heavy-duty twin disc clutch kits. For street or race use, these clutch kits feature a heavy-duty pressure plate and two street discs, providing a generous increase in torque capacity with very few tradeoffs. When it's time to get serious about your clutch, look no further than ACT's MAXX Xtreme Twin Disc Clutch Kits, now with Pro Street Online's LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE!!
ACT Streetlite Flywheels
ACT Prolite Flywheels
Now that you have decided on your clutch, we recommend to get an ACT Streetlite flywheel to take full advantage of your new ACT clutch kit. Generally, you can resurface your old flywheel, but after about $100 of work, the stock flywheel is still a heavy non performance oriented part. With a new ACT Prolite lightweight flywheel, you will notice faster revs, quicker shifts, and less rotational mass. You do not need to resurface these flywheels… just bolt it on, and they are ready to go!

Stephan Papadakis, AEM Racing
“AEM Racing depends on ACT clutches to put the power to the ground in our competition vehicles. We use ACT’s six-puck clutch in the AEM/DriverFX.com Drift S2000, and it’s never failed us. If you want reliable performance from your clutch, ACT is the way to go.”
Damon Riggs, AEM Peformance Parts Engineer
"I am a big fan of ACT Clutches. I owned a '92 Eagle Talon TSi AWD and installed an ACT Clutch after annihilating some other 'performance clutches. The AWD system really taxes the abilities of any clutch and the ACT clutch performed flawlessly. For that reason, I am installing an ACT Clutch in my current project car: an '85 Corolla GTS. I plan to road race the car in SCCA's ITA class and I am sure that the ACT Clutch will perform above my expectations."
