    So I am going to be upping the horsepower on my RB25DET to somewhere in the region of 400bhp and maybe more later down the line but for now I need to replace the clutch and I was going to buy a stage 4 competition clutch that I have seen on ebay R33 Skyline GTS-T RB25DET Stage 4 Uprated Paddle Competition Clutch Kit | eBay however I am not a great fan of paddle clutches if I can avoid it. I then read that people are using R32 GTR clutches as a direct fit as long as you use the earlier push type clutch and so I came across this R32 Skyline GT-R Non V Spec RB26DETT Stage 3 Uprated Competition Clutch Kit | eBay. I just need to know everyone's advice as to which clutch will be best. I would prefer the latter one for a more standard feel and also I hope it may be less stressful on the gearbox as this is for a drift car that will get a lot of clutch kicking.

    Which one should I go for? Cheers

    I ran an R32 GTR clutch with an Exedy disc in mine which held 400Bhp with a lot of stick. Even held about 500Bhp but didn't drive hard with the GTR clutch in.

    Thanks Matt, and just to confirm it fit straight in with no mods?
