Exedy dual disk clutch upgrade?

Has anyone installed or considered installing this dual disk monster of a clutch? I read the first installment in "High Performance Pontiac" magazine of their install on an 04. Granted this is over kill for anything other than a pressurized or monster motor. Dual disks are notorious for being noisy, heavy beasts that aren't well suited for street driving. Opinions?

Call anyone at SLP and ask them about the one in their Yellow GTO, it's stiff, noisy, and very unstreetable..... I was gonna buy one and decided on the Centerforce Dual Friction with flywheel...

That's exactly the nature of the beast and why I was curious if anyone had one. Thanks Steve!

Just curious. Have you guys damaged your stock clutches already? Or is this just an upgrade for performance reasons?

HAHA, I don't know how to do anything "small" lol I'm going to try and talk to the fella who had one installed on his f-body in "High Performance Pontiac". One of the editors, Chris White, is on LS1GTO.com and he knows him. Twin disc clutches are VERY touchy! More ON/OFF and hard to slip so they're hard to drive on the street. Not to mention they tend to have a very heavy pedal feel. SAS, that 455 is going to be a REAL torque monster for sure, you're gonna need not only a HD clutch, but likely BMR's Carbon drive shaft, half shafts, stub axles and diff cover. Harrop is working on a new diff with chevy 12" guts to handle massive torque. They have a supercharged LS1 with nitrous that puts over 600 hp to the rear wheels!

Mine is toast!! It wound up being part of a SB and I'm getting some money back. All I can say is damn this Centerforce is nice!!!!! I can't wait to clock 500 miles so I can take fatty to the track and launch her hard and see what else I can break!
