Only heard good things  :cool:

I was under the impression it could only take up 250 bhp max :undecided:

Its probably hit and miss really. Id say it can cope with it, i think the setup is rated to 300lbs of torque... worse case senario uprated friction plate i think is all thats needed on a stage 2 clutch kit.

Speak with R-Tech and he will probs tell you the G60/vr6 setup is fine. people are running these kits past the 250bhp mark. Apparently there actually stronger than what there quoted. I was worried about the same thing but from looking around people with Hybrid setups, K04's etc they were all running G60/vr6 setup
