new clutch

Finally got my car back. All new suspension and new clutch. Thank you Turbokraft!!!!
I LOVE IT. I purchased a new clutch from turbokraft for my short bell housing turbo tranny and it fells like I am pushing a clutch on a Honda. Hated the KEP clutch nothing but problems. Cant wait to take her on a little drive this weekend.

Yeah, the KEP isnít for everyone. Definitely a hardcore brute force PP.

Glad you like it!

It's the 934 pressure plate.
According to an engineer at Sachs, it's still the strongest single-disc pressure plate they manufacture.
And yet, pedal effort is like a stock clutch with perfect modulation. No problem in stop-and-go traffic.

Good for over 600ft.lb. at the wheels with a full-face organic spring hub disc.

I must have been the exception, with my (past) KEP stage 1. Lucky me I guess, no issues.

Sorry didnít get back to you. I see Chris already answered.
I am sure other people have had good luck with the KEP. Unfortunately for me it did not work out. Anything under 40 deg I could not get the car in first gear. At times it would grind going into gear.
When I originally had it installed within a week I had a problem, so I had to have it taken out and install a second one. Had to pay my mechanic again for install. I usually like most of you like to put the best in my car so this time I went with turbokrafts advice.
John

Maybe John's issue with KEP is related to the short bell housing 930 transmission. I installed a KEP stage 1 in my '77 turbo with a stock 930 organic disk. I could not adjust the clutch arm with 1mm clearance. I had to install a longer adjustment bolt to reach the operating lever. It was like the clutch disk was too thick. When first installed, it would grind going into reverse when the transmission (oil) was hot. When cold it was OK. After putting some miles on it the grinding going into reverse has stopped (after linkage readjustment for wear take up). But I still have to push the clutch pedal all the way down to disengage it.

You usually have to remove the floorboard to get enough release with KEP.

And maybe that's the issue with KEP plates -- they're inconsistent.
Sometimes they don't fit properly in the outer register ring of the flywheel, and aluminum is shaved off as you tighten it down.
Sometimes the clamping torque is way off, and a package rated for 600tq slips at 470wtq -- about 10% lower than spec.
We installed a Stage-1 in a 1986 930 and it was reasonable, but a Stage-1 in a G50-equipped car took at least 50% more effort than in the cable-pull 4-speed car.

In short, the price is attractive with the KEP clutch, but there can be negatives.

No, that one takes a standard 930 disc. The "Ruf" plate will only hold ~525wtq, while the 934 clutch will hold 600+
