What about Valair Clutches?

I know that SB is the most popular clutch, but man they are pricey.. I see there valair clutches for like half the price and say they hold just as much HP..

Im going to have a set 110 DDP injectors installed along with a clutch.. My end goal is around 400 HP daily drivin truck so i dont want a dual disk.. Give my your thoughts about Valair Clutches along with others please..

Far as I know Valairs are as good as South Bends. People just have this thing for the SB.

The biggest thing IMO is SBC has been around a long time and their customer service is second to none. Valair hasn't been around long enough for anyone to say much. I can say for a fact that my SBC has 75K on it and almost all of those miles were running over stock HP. I tow 75% of the time and sled pull.

The Valair is tempting because of the price,but I personally like doing business with Peter and most of the dealers I've met have been really nice.

It would be interesting to put one in my Bro's Cummins once it's pushing 600-700HP

They have been around a long time, just not in the light duty pick up market. They have been building medium duty and heavy duty truck clutches for many years. As far as their quality, it is high for the product offered in my opinion. They have cheaper options and more expensive options. Call them, tell them what you want and they will get you the clutch you need for your truck.
