Which Clutch is the better buy?

Which is the better buy for a 1995 900 2.3 N/A

Profomance Clutch Disk
http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...roducts_id=157
and where can I get a pressure plate for this disk?

Vs

Viggen Clutch Disk Set
http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...roducts_id=155

Or is there a better clutch set out there?

Either or considering your application.

I'm running a slightly modified 97 turbo car..,and the Viggen clutch seems to be more than enough. Got mine from Nick T...., over 2 years ago.

You can find them from various providers...SAS, Group 9, SAAB performance (http://fastsaab.itgo.com/)...there are quite a few providers out there.

That paddle clutch is supposed to be really stiff, and generally used on applications exceeding 300hp. Which I'd really like to see an N/A do some day.

Good luck.

For your non turbo the power will never realistically exceed the limits of a stock clutch. Maybe if you want more abuse tolerance the stock turbo clutch 94-97 would be fine. The clutch is not something where overkill is desired. We would not sell either the Viggen or the Spec clutches for the non turbo application. The second problem is the cable.. It will be troublesome with the greater pedal pressure of a performance pressure plate.

Stick with the ol'fashoned stock clutch for the best result? Will do.

Thanks
