Hey everyone! I'm taking my car in this week to get everything checked out, just to make sure everything is in great condition. My dad, however, thinks I may need a new clutch and I'm pushing for a Type R clutch instead of a stock GSR clutch. Basically my question is how much more is the Type R clutch over the GSR clutch? If its not too much of a difference I'll definately pick one up. Also, dont reccomend any aftermarket clutches because my parents will never go for that. Thanks in advance!

Don't know any of the technical details, but the type r clutch has a higher clamping force.

If no one knows the price difference off hand, does anyone know where I can find this particular part? My car is going in on wednesday and I need specs in order to talk my dad into buying one for me. Thanks...

Will a Type-R clutch drop into an LS just like an LS clutch would? Is it a better clutch because it has a higher clamping force? Or does that also mean it is harsher in daily driving?

Let me know soon,

Type R clutch should have no problem fitting an LS. You probably wouldn't notice a whole lot of difference in daily driving between the 2 clutches. Higher clamping force means the clutch can handle more horsepower than a normal LS clutch could.

Yeah, there are some differences. Clamping force is one. The Type R has a stronger plate as well. Its all about tolerances, not so much a performance thing.

I know that there is a difference in where it engages between the GSR and the TypeR, but I imagine that can be adjusted regardless of which clutch you have installed.

The clutch won't feel any different. It is more durable, but won't grab harder or anything like an aftermarket performance clutch would.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but would a clutch made for a GSR fit a Type-R Engine, or LS engine? Sorry it might sound dumb too, just wondering.

i think thats pretty well established...if a type r clutch fits a GSR and a GSR clutch fits an LS......then yeah.

im pretty sure theyre all interchangable. flywheels and all.

i will be installing the 2001 ITR Clutch/Flywheel setup in my 2000 GSR this summer.
