American Powertrain introduces ProTwin disc clutch for GM, Ford and Mopar

American Powertrain announced that it now offers a new ProTwin twin disc clutch kit for GM, Ford and Mopar performance applications. The kit comes with a billet steel flywheel, pressure plate, two drive discs, floater, flywheel crank bolts, pilot bearing and alignment tool. Each clutch kit comes fully balanced and features 1100 ft./lbs. of torque holding capacity, the company notes.

The kit is manufactured in the USA with a steel gauge and carbon-based friction material, the company notes.

“In terms of performance, this is a quality designed and engineered product that won’t cost thousands of dollars,” said Matt Graves, American Powertrain marketing and sales director. “Now with the increased power levels of modern engines, you don’t have to drive around with a heavy clutch that feels like an on and off switch. This new clutch offers tons of torque capacity with the feel of a lighter single disc clutch. No more having to compromise comfort with increased power.  We’re very happy with the result and we know our customers will feel like they got their money’s worth.”
