Clutch.

Is there a reason why the gears rev out so fast. I do have the 2 step system and the msd 6al signal box but would that cause my gear to rev out so quick.? Or could it be the clutch is going bad? And any suggestions on a good clutch without breaking the bank?

Maybe you have 4.10 gears?


For a clutch, I won't use anything other than the Centerforce Dual Friction myself at least until I over power it.
Starts around $300+ in price, but with 90% more holding power and reduced pedal feel it's worth it.


Check prices at American Muscle, they have a forum onsite here.

94GTpony,

Are your RPM rising and speedo moving slowly or not at all? Give me a little more details, but it does sound like your clutch is slipping, from you description.

Exedy makes a solid clutch. I've run these on my own Mustangs and we've sold a ton of other customers. It's an extremely affordable option, too! Check out some of the reviews on our AM site.

Hope this helps!

Shane

I mean it feels like I'm going through the gears to fast. First and second are very short gears for some reason. I have the 3.55 gears If that makes a difference?

It's possible that you have a trans off a 2.3 they are geared more in 1st and second.

You will need the numbers off of the I'd tag. If there is no tag it will be harder to figure out. The numbers on the case are not accurate.once you get the numbers I believe there is a link in the useful stickies thread on identifying t5s. If not google will work.
