Developed for Chevrolet Performance 454 and 502 Big Block crate engines, new DYAD DS clutch kit holds up to 1,300 lbs. of torque while still providing a light pedal feel for easy street driving.
Prescott, Ariz. (August, 2017) – Centerforce, a leading manufacturer of performance clutches for classic and late model cars and trucks for over 30 years, has released its DYAD DS Twin Disc Clutch for Chevrolet Performance 454 and 502 Big Block crate engines.
Chevrolet Performance factory crate engines are one of the most popular engine swaps for enthusiasts looking to add reliable power to their street, show or race car. When big power numbers are the goal, Generation V 454 and 502 Big Block engines are a popular option, thanks to their strong bottom ends and large aftermarket support for modifications. The introduction of the Centerforce Big Block DYAD DS Twin Disc Clutch provides a modern clutch solution that can match the power potential of these big block engines while still retaining smooth street driving characteristics.
This new DYAD DS Twin Disc clutch (Part # 04615748) fits Chevrolet Performance 454 and 502 Big Block crate engines with a 1-1/8-inch, 26 spline input shaft. This fully dampened clutch system was developed for vehicles pushing extreme power levels after the addition of turbochargers, a supercharger or nitrous.
Engineered to deliver superior clamp load with light pedal effort and smooth engagement, the clutch utilizes Centerforce’s patented Ball Bearing Pressure Plate and twin disc design. The 10.4-inch pressure plate also includes the company’s patented Centrifugal Weight System which helps the clutch kit hold up to 1,300 ft-lbs of torque. The clutch discs feature segmented “puc”-style facings on both sides, to provide increased holding capacity and longevity. A lightened billet steel flywheel delivers increased throttle response. This part is a 33.3 in/oz Counter Balance, a zero balance option is available as well.
Centerforce DYAD DS Twin Disc Clutch kits come pre-assembled and include the pressure plate, floating disc, floater, drive disc, flywheel, pilot bearing, alignment tool and ARP fasteners.
