spec are good but I have heard and witnessed bad things from their cheap throw out bearings, can you run an oem ford throw out bearing with a spec clutch? the stage II in my friends car is WAY stiff.... you may want to only get a stage I.

I still have my SPEC Throw-out bearing in. I've had it for about a year at least so about 20,000 miles or so.

I'll tell you this, SPEC stands behind their products. I burned up a stage II, and they sent me a stage III for free.

I wanted to switch from a aluminum flywheel to a steel one, and they did a 1 for 1 swap.

Kudos go out to Peter and Jeff in customer service.

You're also pushing over 400hp to the wheels with that supercharger. I'm pretty sure that's over the stage II rating.
