VALAIR Clutch

Can anybody tell me if this VALAIR Clutch is any good? My 2002 Dodge 5.9L HO will easily spin the stock clutch and I cant afford a SouthBend.

Or can anyone recomend a good clutch for my application?

I have put in two organic/feramic valair clutches so far. One was in a G56 trans and the other was in a nv5600. The G56 truck has the hot juice (180hp) and the NV5600 just had a regular juice w/ attitude. The clutches in both of these trucks are smooth and neither have slipped so far.
I would highly recommend valair, their customer service is great and their product is excellent. Call Kevin at valair, he can get you lined up on what clutch is best for you, and he is always happy to help.

well, as soon as I get to goin to college my dad will give me a certain budget he is willing to go for for a truck, one of two paths, get a 12v, immediately pull hte engine, kdp, studs, thicker gasket, ddp injectors, laser cut dv's, 4 GSK, 60 lb springs, no plate, mack plug, full forward, adjusted star wheels and afc, 5 inch exhaust, Valair, 66 turbo, don't know from where though, and probably 20* timing all this I feel would be in my budget. I'm lookin to work in a diesel shop through college and was thinking of getting the pump benched too

or a CR, save up my money, stack TST Powermax and smarty, hot rod cp3, prolly some tips too, 5 inch stack, mitre cut, right below the cab, studs, 66 turbo, Valair

and yeah, I'm gettin tired of the gasser, especially when I can make 60 gallons of diesel a week for 70 cents a damn gallon

I'm in the market for clutches right now. 250hp towing clutch can't hold the 12 valve. ^^^ looks like you got a plan, my dad says I have to finish college before I can start spendin on stuff like that, but the clutch is urgent. Probly get one in the neighborhood of 450-500hp so's I can add the power later.

well, that's why I haggled for the budget, so that I could do what I wanted without him telling me what I can or can't do, but if smokem decides he wants to teach me his ways those plans might change, and yeah, the Valair is the way to go, Southbend is a little too expensive to justify
