High Technology Makes the Difference
Historically, high performance clutches have been a compromise. While improving holding or clamping pressure, manufacturers nearly always increase pedal pressure to an uncomfortable point, especially for stop-and-go traffic.
Besides drivability concerns, additional pedal pressure can adversely affect stock clutch linkage and cause premature thrust bearing wear, leading to missed shifts, damaged clutch components and even engine destruction.
Today, thanks to Clutch Masters, increased holding pressure does not necessarily mean increased pedal pressure and the problems that can accompany it. By re-engineering the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leveragetm ttechnique, Clutch Masters has increased clamping power, often without changing pedal pressure.
Excessively increased pedal pressure, as found in many of today’s traditional high performance clutches, places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of today’s sport compact automobiles. Placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether. This failure can lead to catastrophic internal engine damage.
A clutch, simply put, is a friction device that disengages and engages the engine from the transmission to allow for transition from motionless to movement and for gear changes. For street applications a smooth transition of power is essential while still being able to transfer all the power of the engine to the transmission. As power output of engines increase and demands on clutches become greater – for example high performance street or racing cars – the holding and clamping capacity of a clutch also must increase. This is where Clutch Masters’ innovative engineering comes into play.
Simply the Best…
LAUNCH Distribution is proud to introduce the all new headers for the popular 2001-2006 BMW M3 (E46) with the L6-3.2L S54 engine from aFe Power.
aFe Power’s new “Race Only” Twisted Steel Headers deliver an astounding 12hp and 16lbs. x ft. torque while outflowing the factory exhaust manifolds. The headers are constructed of near equal length 1.625” 16-gauge 304 stainless steel tubing with 3/8” thick CNC machined flanges to ensure a leak free seal. To eliminate dead space that can cause turbulence and hinder flow that formed collectors are prone to produce, true merge collectors and optimized tube lengths are used for true pulse control technology improving flow and performance. 100% TIG-welded, the smooth curves and increased diameter of this header helps remove restriction and keeps exhaust gas flowing smoothly for improved performance and durability. All components are supplied for a hassle-free installation with no modifications necessary.
100% TIG-Welded by certified craftsmen for race proven strength and durability. TIG-Welding provides the strongest welds reducing stress cracks.
Retain Factory Sensors:
aFe has designed this system to retain all your factory sensors for a hassle free installation.
Mitered collectors not only extend the tube lengths and decrease turbulence, but provide optimal exhaust scavenging. The result is increased horsepower, torque and improved throttle response.
CNC Machined Flanges:
Flanges are CNC machined not only to be visually appealing but for a precise fit and leak-free seal.
Brushed 304 SS Construction:
These headers are constructed of durable CNC mandrel bent brushed 304 stainless steel tubing for maximum performance, corrosion resistance and strength eliminating cracking.
This is a “Race Only” product used solely for competition. Its use is limited to closed-course and open-course racing that is formally sanctioned by a recognized racing organization. Any other use including recreational off-road use could be in violation of local, state and federal laws. A check engine light will emitt and aFe recommends using a programmer but it is not necessary.
