Clutch kits

Planning on getting an exedy Mach 400 stage 1 clutch kit(26 tooth) I have a rebuilt t-5 tranny I think it's tremec not 100% sure. Will the Mach match well with the t-5 or will I need to change my preference for the clutch kit?

Post up a link as I think the Mach400 is a stage 2 kit.


If it is organic then it should be stockish in feeling.


I have no direct experience with this clutch tho.

I don't want stage 2, maybe they have it listed wrong but I don't drag my car or anything so I don't see the need in spending money on the unnecessary

The King Cobra clutch has shown to be a pretty good OEM replacement. Also remember to check your clutch cable, adjuster and the other components associated with the clutch system.

Clutch kits

This is my first time doing my clutch myself, anything I need to look out for? My quads are stock also so should anything really stick out to me while I'm under there?

I was looking into the king cobra clutch kit on UPR for my soon to be supercharged fox and it says it's rated to 600 horse

Ugh, more "stage" talk. "Stage" is a marketing thing, period. It means precisely nothing and unless it is the actual NAME of the clutch (like a Spec Stage 2 is the actual name of the Spec clutch) you are speaking ricer.

Look at the manufacturer's torque ratings and overbuy vs getting something "just good enough" for what you are doing now.

The Exedy Mach 400 is rated to 438 ft lbs which is going to equal out to high 300s at the wheels, easily attainable for a superhcarged car.

That being said, the Exedy organic clutches are VERY good as far as pedal pressure, grip, noise and smoothness. I put an 11" Exedy Mach 400 in my 98 over last summer and it was great. You just have to be damn sure to trash the pilot and TOB it comes with and pick up those OEM units from a Ford dealer (note I said OEM, NOT FORD RACING).

You will probably be fine with a Mach 400 in a superhcarged pushrod app but you are going to want to keep it down in the 400-425whp range on any single disc 10.5" organic unit.

As far as the 26 spline that was mentioned... you can't use it unless you have a 26 spline trans which I'm assuming you do not.

The most important part to the equation is if you are double clutching and granny shifting.

The reason I'm getting "just get enough" clutch is this is still my daily until November, which is when I planned to get an S197. Keyword "planned", but I checked the specs on the exedy vs what i have the 26 tooth will do me no good I'd have to get 10. But regardless Scotty are u saying stage 1-3 clutches are the same if the brand is the same? Confused..

Ok I see what you're saying, so once again this is my first time even working with a clutch period, I'm still looking at what to buy but I've alrdy pulled the pipes and dropped the trans, my flywheel is completely trashed it looks like it belongs on an auto trans, my pilot and throw out bearings are bad too so anymore suggestions from here would be helpful and any other sites that I can look at

Your T-5 is 10 spline. I'm saying that "stage" means nothing and you have to look at the actual torque specs. Also only buy reputable brands although 90% of all the single disc organic clutches are Luk/Exedy/Valero no matter what they are reboxed as.

I had great experiences with the real (now discontinued) King Cobra clutches from Ford but tried an Exedy Mach 400 last summer and it was a really REALLY good clutch.

Yeah like I said it does come with a pilot and TOB (and the plastic alignment tool) but I would highly HIGHLY recommend you order OEM Ford units from Tousley or go to your local dealer and pick them up. Last thing you will need is to have your clutch in and working great and start to hear a chirping 10k miles later and have to pull it all apart for a $45 part.

Also, either get your flywheel resurfaced or order a new OEM one. If not then the new one will not break in properly and you'll have hotspots or chatter/both and it won't grab as well.
