Science Friction Clutches - American Powertrain
American Powertrain’s Science Friction clutches utilize the most technically advanced friction materials to achieve great performance without a heavy pressure plate to weigh you down. Best of all, we sell most of our clutches direct to the customer with a transmission system so we get tons of feedback from them and use their opinions to constantly improve the line-up. The big box guys ship their stuff on pallets, we ship ours one great clutch at a time. Available for all popular 4, 5 and 6-speed applications behind any classic or modern V8.
Made in USA using scientifically advanced friction materials bonded and riveted to a carrier with captive springs for ultimate rebound control.
Light pedal effort and high tip-in for comfort, carefully balanced and made in Germany to their typically exacting standards. Two stages available for each system.
True Torque Ratings
