I'm wondering if anyone has any words of wisdom regarding replacing the clutch in a 4th gen. Any brand that you specifically love/hate? Any vendor that has screaming deals? Any not so obvious tips for this job in a 4th gen? Thanks!!

I been running a factory stock clutch in my AI car without any problems..with the power and torque we are running no need to spend more money on aftermarket stuff

Yeah, its not the horsepower that concerns me...its the constant shifting and constant full throttle load...

al, we've been putting centerforce clutch and pressure plates in our new 4th gen build ups...used them for years in 3rd gens and had absolutely zero problems...even behind 400 horsepower 383cid showroom stockers...both jegs and summit have them...richard...and don't go getting one of those aluminum flywheels to go with them

Al,

I just spoke with a guy a SPEC clutches. They will build one the way you want it and its about 100 bucks more then a centerforce unit. This means lighter then stock or center force units. (205)491-8581. Tell him you race CMC on the west coast, this way my replacement units will cost me less

Nick, I would not think of using some high speed nearly invisable fly wheel. I'm just helping mine trim a few pounds.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I ended up deciding to go with a Spec clutch. I actually bought it earlier in the week and it got here today. It was cheaper than the centerforce, and there are a lot of people abusing these with good results elsewhere...we'll see.

 

I didn't get a lightweight, aluminum flywheel that only weights seven pounds though, don't worry.
