    Yeah. More spring softer but also sorta depends on the friction surface area.

    So, in the end, you paid money to replace a working auto gearbox for half dead manual box?

    Mine I juz consider to chg back to stock size. Although my friend call me to upgrade to a 8&8.5 inch clutch. What are the difference?
    I mean 7.5 inch vs a 8 & 8.5 inch clutch

    Most people go bigger for more contact. Unless your mod your engine until so powerful the clutch slips, then probably can consider. But if not, why bother, wasting time and money. Like I mention, even after my engine swap to 200bhp, still using normal Exedy clutch only......lol

    Yes. When people say larger clutch, that means a larger circumference. You will want a flywheel that matches or is bigger
