The Z1 Mild Performance Clutch Kit is our recommended clutch solution for all Naturally Aspirated 350Zs or G35s equipped with the VQ35DE engine. This clutch cannot be used with VQ35HR (dual throttle body) engines.
All of our Z1 Clutch Kits come complete with a genuine Koyo release bearing, pilot bushing, and alignment tool in addition to the pressure plate and friction disc. The pressure plate in this kit exceeds OEM specifications with equal clamping force resulting in no change in pedal feel. The standard full faced friction disc is made with an upgraded organic metallic material that will provide good wear and great engagement. For increased torque capacity a sprung hub ceramic six puck disc is available as an option below. As with any puck style friction disc, engagement will become more aggressive due to higher coefficient of friction of the ceramic pucks grabbing more and slipping less than an organic metallic full faced disc. Overall this clutch will hold up to engines producing 350 ft/lbs of torque or less. Longevity of this clutch will ultimately depend on driving style. We recommend the Z1 Performance Street Clutch for forced induction applications.
