Why is choosing a quality clutch so important?

The clutch is king

Basically, all clutch kits contain the component parts: a clutch pressure plate, clutch friction plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing/bushing, and a clutch alignment. Depending on what kind of performance you said you wanted out of your clutch, you will get a clutch pressure plate that should increase clamping forces over your stock clutch. Many clutch friction plates, such as those from ACT, feature heavy-duty organic materials designed to increase holding power and extend the life of your clutch.
