I haven’t really seen any good insights on the Toda High Power Clutch while I was searching for info regarding this clutch, so I thought I would write a quick review about it.
These are pictures of my Toda High Power clutch before I sold it…..

Does the front clutch cover look surprisingly simliar to the Exedy Hyper Single clutch? Or maybe they aren’t many ways to design a clutch cover.
The Flywheel cover is held on by allen bolts
The actual clutch disk is a Exedy unit that you can buy replacements via Exedy. The part number is TA095. This one is obviously worn after years of use.
The flywheel is the standard Toda chromoly flywheel. I inquired with toda if it is okay to resurface this flywheel and there response is as follows: ”
The TODA Chrome-moly steel flywheels cannot be re-surfaced – this is inherent to this type of flywheel design (Chrome-Moly, whether it’s from Toda, Mugen, Jun, etc).
How does it feel? The high power clutch disk feels like an Exedy Hyper Single. A bit heavy for the street due to it’s 6 puck clutch and requires a good amount of effort to get the car to move. The Toda flywheel on the clutch kit does allow the engine to rev faster. On the race track or with upgraded power, this clutch would provide the clamping forces you would need, but for the street I believe it is overkill. This is probably why Toda released their Ojisama Spec Toda clutch, aka old man special. I am curious if Exedy is the white label that produces the clutch cover for Toda and all toda did was provide their flywheel with this kit. Since we know Exedy makes the clutch disk and the clutch cover looks identical to the Exedy Hyper Single besides the color difference and the small grooves on the cover.
Please see a picture I grabbed off the GoTuning website.
