What goal do you have for the car in terms of power and purpose?

power wise, im hoping to get it up to 250-300hp, but this is my daily driver, so i dont want a clutch that's going to make that a burden in everyday traffic.

I got a star clutch, stage 2 with a stage 3 pressure plate from the link kev posted. Great service. It is not difficult on the pedal at all, and grabs really nice with a wider grabbing area than some clutches I've driven. Sometimes it can be a bit chattery (vibration) especially in reverse.

Ditto what Matt said. I've had my Star clutch for about a year-and-a-half now, and am very pleased with it. Also kind of glad to find that I'm not crazy with the "somewhat chattery"! [Image: biggrin.gif]

Good clutch though, just drives different than stock. Learn how to modulate it correctly and no chatter at all!

Be Cool,

I got a Centerforce stage II, I love the way it grabs--while doing the clutch, think about a short throw shifter too, you will not be disappointed.
yeah it is fast, just a little slow getting back to the garage!🚓
