Okay, I have been doing some research based on the Exedy buyers guide. It looks like for comfort and performance I should go with the Exedy Stage 4 twin cerametallic disc with sprung hub center. I still need help.

On the exedy website the part # for this item is FM022HD. The site has this listed as a 535 WTQ capacity.

I found what appears to be the same item on ebay found on the link listed below. It is $640. But I am worried that its not the same part that is on the exedy site. On ebay it says that it is the clutch kit but the part # is 15951HD wich is the flywheel part number on the exedy site. Additionally the ebay posting says that the WTQ capacity is 460. I am so confused I want to buy the right one but I want the best deal I can get. Thats why I am shoping ebay but the numbers are not matching up. Can any one help me figure this out. I need the best deal on the exedy FM022HD clutch kit or if cheaper and compairable a similar ACT kit.

15951HD is the "Heavy Duty" version of the normal stage 2 clutch, not coincidentally numbered 15951. It's right in the catalog that I linked for you earlier on page 36, listed as handling 460 WTQ like you said. The FM022HD clutch you are looking at is likely to cost close to $2000+ since the SD version (not quite as heavy duty but with a sprung center) is $1750 priced well. I think you should get the stage 2 HD clutch, better comfort and better cost.

I agree, the Stage2 Heavy Duty sounds perfect.
