    I recommend either getting the CTR retrofit done, or waiting to see what people think of ACT's upcoming clutches once they become publicly available.

    I'm not referring to Action Clutch. I'm referring to Advanced Clutch Technology. To my knowledge, their clutches are still being tested.

    No worries. From what I hear, Action Clutch has somewhat of a bad reputation. That's why I suggest either go with the CTR retrofit or wait for ACT's offerings.
    I personally have had the CTR retrofit in my Si running FBO with TSP Stage 2 for over 10K miles and have had zero issues or complaints with it.

    I’m real happy with my CTR retrofit. Have about 1k miles on it. No complaints whatsoever.

    I have been hearing great things about the CTR retro since the beginning of it. I thought it was something that would be unobtainable to me so I went with SPEC. Now that I have decided to go with Emans clutch, I cant get a hold of him!:banghead:. I know I am supposed to be patient. I understand he is a busy guy but damn I just want to get on the list so I can forget about it. Has anybody heard from him in a while? Is he still alive? I am not friends with him on social media so I cant see any of his posts or anything.

    Does Eman's CTR retrofit need a clutch delay valve delete, or an upgraded clutch master cylinder to work best?
