I replaced the stock clutches with SSP Kevlar, and we had issues, then eventually had to replace the transmission, so I bought a used one with low miles and just kept the stock clutches, so far it's holding well.
Thanks for the info. With the VT2-585 I believe that RWHP should be around 500. After seeing all the beating those VT2 and VT3 DCT's can take I guess I should be fine.
