Upgrading your Mazdaspeed 3 or 6 clutch is an important part of the modifying process. Although the stock clutch is actually pretty good in the Mazdaspeed MZR DISI, it's still a wear item that will eventually need to be replaced, especially if it's being subjected to more abuse from track use or just higher powered engines than stock. ACT's Heavy Duty 6 Puck Clutch kits feature a 6 pad, segmented design. This style is more performance oriented and should not be considered the most streetable clutch, although it still is streetable. It engages quickly due to the lighter rotating mass of the segmented design and less overall material to slip along the pressure plate and flywheel. It is has a more noticeable amount of vibration and harshness than the full face. Alhtough this clutch is dramatically different feeling than stock, it is almost a dramatic increase in performance. It also features a sprung center hub which reduces vibration over a solid hub. The Prolite flywheel is the lighter flywheel option out of the 2 different types which allows for quicker revs and less parasitic drivetrain loss than a heavier flywheel. The heavy duty pressure plate provides much more grabbing power than stock and this is noticeable in the clutch pedal feel. It will feel stiffer and more difficult to press down. It's a small compromise for the increase in performance of the car.

ACT clutches for the Mazdaspeed come COMPLETE in every way. Every kit features everything you need to perform the install except for the flyhweel bolts which aren't common in any kit. These are available separately right here and you'll need 6 of them. ACT kits come with the following parts.

*Clutch Disc
*Pressure Plate
*Throwout/Release Bearing
*Pilot Bearing
*Alignment Tool

Torque Capacity: 530 ft/lbs

We recommend this kit for any Mazdaspeed 3 or 6 running a larger than stock turbo or for someone who only wants pure performance, regardless of turbo setup, but still wants to retain some driveability and comfort.

    Solid replacement

    Posted by Keevan Walker on Jun 28th 2020

    Its exactly like its described, an HD Replacement that's much more aggressive and is quick to grab. Definitely designed for the aggressive driver. And the flywheel is very lightweight and seems solid. Can be rough at red lights on steep hills considering there is a very thin line between engaged and not engaged but its definitely manageable for a driver whose atleast somewhat experienced with driving a manual transmission.
    I'm using this on my Daily.
    The only "con" per say, would be the noise. At idle with the clutch pedal out it chatters pretty loud, doesnt sound broken or necessarily bad, but it's prominent. You can also hear it while in gear, more so if your coasting without the throttle engaged.
    (** This is in comparison to my cars OEM DUAL MASS flywheel/clutch setup - compared to my previous car, RSX Type S, its only moderately louder.)

    I'm 1500 miles into the clutch and it's still solid. I would recommend to any car enthusiast with a sub 350 Torque car, even a daily.

    Not what is stated.

    The part description says that it retains some drivability and comfort but that’s a lie because it retains all of it. I have zero complaints about the drivability of this clutch and I put it in my daily driver. I almost let others online steer me away from this by saying that it was going to make driving a pain. It doesn’t. Don’t listen to them. This is an amazing kit and I’d definitely buy it again.

    Everything was great, until 2 days ago

    Never had a problem with the clutch at all. Good engagement with some chatter. Then clutch pedal stayed depressed once while driving. It popped back up when I pulled over. Then started squealing. Then while I was trying to limp home from work it stayed depressed again. I had the clutch installed in December of 2016. I'll purchase OEM clutch ere soon.

    Firm engagement and minimal chatter

    Posted by Ryan on May 8th 2017

    I bought this kit hearing that the ProLite flywheel was going to be way too light for daily driving, however it definitely is not. The pressure plate is a bit stiffer than stock and the engagement point is different but it's a nice, new feeling. Installed this in my 2012 Mazdaspeed 3. Fitment was perfect and came with everything I needed including the bearings, alignment tool, and grease for the input shaft. In my opinion, ACT puts out a really solid kit.

    Holding up to 700Nm of torque!

    Posted by Eugene on Jun 26th 2016

    Previously I was using organic ACT clutch and it started to slip badly at about 620-630 Nm of torque. After the disassembling, the wear of pressure plate and flywheel was awful, so decided to switch to ceramic disk. So far so good - no problems!
