Talking Help a Nub

Hey everybody. I'm a New Yorker that just recently moved to Japan. I made an impulse buy and got a 1990 R32 GTR.

Was wondering if anybody could offer me some assistance.

Let me list my mods first to give people a general idea.

HKS 2x2530 turbos
Tein suspension
R33 gtr brakes
Cusco Tension rods and arms
HKS cams
HKS v-con pro computer
nismo 555cc injectors
nismo fuel pump
Apexi intercooler
HKS racing muffler
and a little more.

Ok, here's my situation. I love the vehicle but i'm having some trouble driving it. It's a little weird in Japan, i.e. no test driving for American Military personnel.

It's got an aftermarket clutch, either a twin or triple plate (I.e. the rattling).

Now, I've never driven a twin plate or a triple plate but from the way people describe triple plates, I think it's a triple. However, I don't know. Does anybody know a simple way where I can check if it's a pull or push type clutch?

If it's a triple, I want to replace it with a twin spring plate or if it's a twin to a super single. But in simplicity, this vehicle cannot be a daily driver with that clutch.

Please send some suggestions, i.e. how to check if it's a pull\push or clutch recommendations.

The vehicle's running with about 430hp.

Why do you need to know if it's push/pull if you can't drive it with whatever it has anyway?

For street I'd stay Stage 1 light street clutch. Something like from Exedy.

R32's used a pull style clutch. The push style was used in R33 and later models.
