Need advice on new cluch

Hi guys

Im trying to replace my cluch and get something with more performnace and grip to be able to handle the turbo, the current cluch is in its last days.
Any help or recomandations would be great.
Oh yeah the car is a 88 325is with turbo intercooled @ 10 PSI boost

Has any body heard of Bully Performance Cluch?
If so what do you guys think about stage 4.

Thanks guys

Don't bother. There's an AMAZING clutch place in Oakville/Burlington called Euro Drive.

http://www.euro-drive.com/

Take your stock worn out clutch and pressure plate to them, tell them what you need it for and they'll do it right. This is twice I've used them now (both times redoing the clutch in Kevlar, and reinforcing pressure plate) and the results are... well:

Thanks for the info they are not open today I will call them on wendsday.
How much did you spend on the cluch and what are you running if you don't mind me asking what type of result.

My first clutch was on a worked E34 M5 (walked 996 C4Ss on the back straight at MoSport, dead even with E39 M5 from the line), held perfectly. This one is on an S52 in my E30, also works great (haven't tried it under full blast yet, still breaking in - requires 1k).

Both times it was around 450 Canadian, no shit! You do have to have your core (but other than the infrastructure, they leave nothing, they even put in stiffer springs in the clutch and pressure plate - all of which you customize while talking to the guy, including material - don't worry he'll know what you need, he was a racer in the '50/60s, dude really knows what he's doing [Harold]).

EDIT: BTW the guy who recommended Eurodrive to me was EMPOWERD, he used them for a clutch for "the" E30. He said when they pulled the tranny one time on his supercharged S52 setup, the clutch looked brand new.

I have to disagree... Euro Drive clutches are not all that good.... I know enough people that had Eurodrive's clutches blow up/break on them. Some were good, most were bad.

I can recommend these though:

http://www.bullyclutch.com/

edit: I just noticed u were actually asking about Bully clutches lol... yes they're VERY good... Not only that, they still feel like a stock clutch. Eurodrive clutches feel like you need to dislocate your knee when u drive them. Also you'll want a sprung clutch to reduce chatter. PM me if you want I can give you contact info for a Bully dealer in TO.

any of you guys ever use anything from http://clutchnet.com?? I've read a couple people online claiming good things about them. If they work well it be nice for us folks on a budget.

Whats the pricing like on the bullyclutches?

I'm gonna need to replace this e34 m5 clutch soon.

The price on the Bully is about $650.00 Canadian the guy at there head office is going to make a package for me he recomands Mixing partes from Stage 4 and Stage 3.
Every body that I talk to that has a Bully loves it so it comes very will recomanded,
I know its a bit more than the other guys, how ever I think its worth it in the long run.
You pay a bit more for premium quality.

Thanks for your help Notorius VR

No worries man! Let me know how it goes...

My buddy with the turbo E30 is going to get one soon as well... His new stock clutch is starting to slip in the higher gears now when he beats on it... then again, he's running 20 psi and makes approx 400WHP.... I was suprised the stock clutch held as long as it did

We use and sell Bully clutchs. Never broken one in any of our race cars or customers race or Turbo applications.

We car currently using it in our GT1 race car 600HP 600Tq no slipping, and our 400hp turbo Jetta no problems for 4 years same Bully clutch.
