Difference between 370z stock clutch and nismo clutch?
 
I have a 370 with the sports pack. included. I recently just bought a fairly used clutch/flywheel from a forum member here that he took off from his Nismo after he went TT and upgraded to a different clutch/flywheel.
The condition is indeed pretty decent but the issue is that the clutch looks different from the one being sold at: http://www.the370z.com/drivetrain-en...eel-combo.html

I messaged FBNissan, the guy selling that combo, asking if that's the OEM Nismo set and he replied yes.
You'll notice the clutch doesn't have 4 springs around the center, instead it has 8 holes.
The one that was sold to me doesn't have holes, but instead has 4 springs around the center. The seller told me his felt more solid and stiff, compared to the soft and mushy clutch on his friends' regular non-nismo 370's.
I don't think I was duped but I'm wondering now why there seems to be 3 different factory clutches: stock ones on the regular 370, stock ones on the nismo, and another set of nismo clutch/flywheel being sold from the link mentioned above.

what they are selling is a NISMO aftermarket part, that is NOT the stock clutch and flywheel that comes on a nismo from the factory. There is no difference in the stock clutch between any years/trims.

Idk, it might be me but I feel as my Nismo clutch is a bit tight. After test driving the sports, I stalled once or twice with it.

If the nismo has a stronger pressure plate from the factory Nissan doesn't advertise it and courtesyparts doesn't acknowledge it.

I can't imagine the parts would be different, but Im curious.

They're the same. I test drove a Nismo. Felt the same.

I doubt it differs any. Run the part #'s if in doubt.
