stock clutch and stage 3
:throwup: Ive been searching, about the stock clutch strength.
I plan on going stage 3 pretty soon from 185hp 2000 saab 9-3. Will this clutch have to be changed right away. and what are my options?

this car is taking up tooo much money, i have other cars im more intrested in, but i just wanted a fun turbo saab. :th_coolio:

from my understanding it wont have to be changed right away, but it wont last super long either.

alot of it depends on how you drive too. if you drive like a 16 year old that just got their license it will go quick, if your easy on it most of the time and save ripping it for the right moments youll get alot more out of it.

Snowcat nailed it. Driving style is the biggest factor in clutch life. A stock Viggen clutch disc and pressure plate can hold MUCH more than stock torque if you don't abuse it by launching from standing starts...

If it has a lot of miles on it, it won't last long. Putting a 3in exhaust on my friends 99 caused the clutch to start slipping. YMMV.

yea i certainly dont plan on launching this car from a stand still, i have other whips that can match that 16 teen yr old beating. I just wanna be able to feel it pull a little harder than it does,(185hp currently) with a good exhaust note. My clutch prob has around 100,000 on it and am scared it will be slipping. Well guess ill just give it a whirl.

I ran my car at stage 3 with a stock clutch for 6 months no problems.

I never done burnouts tho.
