Turbo button head for the 5 port.
I use the standard pipe that comes with a hyper 8 pro with a long header.
Has great bottom end and still awsome top as well.
JP3 should have the best of both worlds, ide go for a longer header pipe to increase bottom end a bit more. Havnt used a JP3 on this motor but ide say it should be sweet.

Turbo head is the go, i do believe both 7 port and 5 port come in either Turbo or Standard plug so its your choice, tho turbo performs better IMO.

I used a standard Hyper flywheel and an 13t clutch bell assembly.
I tried Hyper Carbon shoes but they keep splitting where they mount over the flywheel pins. The track i drive on is rough and i use one alloy clutch shoe with a light 1 mm spring and two carbon with 1.1 mm springs and it just eats up the carbon ones and splits them.

I could try some lighter springs on the carbon but im just gonna go to a triple alloy shoe setup and play with spring strength from there.

Ide say alloy shoes with two 1.1 mm springs and one 1 mm spring would be great and not have to harsher grab. Could try all 3 springs at 1 mm but im yet to do that, maybe this weekend

Either way if its got enough balls to do to shoes what its done to mine, you cant say its underpowered and lacks traction, even if the track is a but rough atm.

Good alloy shoes are Ofna part number - OFN10011

I love my Werks clutches. I have one on my OS Speed in the XT8, and one on the Ninja Rossi Tuned in the EC. The carbon shoes last a *long* time. I bought a spare set of carbon shoes last year, and haven't needed them yet. Basically zero maintenance. Easy on the clutch bell, too. Aluminum shoe clutches are not zero maintenance. I haven't tried the rulon or teflon shoes, but they are available for different feels.

Has anyone had problems with the adjustment nut moving on the Werks clutch during operation?
