Stiffening clutch

Is it possible to make the clutch stiffer? The one in my 07 v6 was stiffer than the one in my 06 GT. Being used to the stiffer clutch i prefer it over a loose one. So, is it possible?

Yes... aftermarket clutch...


I will add to your question:
Can you convert these dumb *** clutches to cable? And can you convert to a cable throttle?

I had a feeling that was the only way. I guess ill just have to deal with it for now. And are they hydraulic? I thought they were already cable, or is that just the v6's?

I thought cables were just on 64-04 mustang's... I don't like the idea of how the clutch and throttle work electronically... I like to b n control

Re: Stiffening clutch

My stock Clutch is very stiff. Also the clutch is hydraulic, therefore, NOT electronic.

Re: Stiffening clutch

Cable clutch started with the mustang II in the late 70's. Before that the clutch was linkage setup. Hydraulic started in 2005. If you want a stiffer peddle buy a new pressure plate with heaver rating. All 3 setups have plus and neg affects, cables stretch and break, Hyd leak, as long as you can feel the engagement point that is all that matters.
And yes you can have cable throttle Ford makes it, also aftermarket makes parts to switch from Cable to Hyd and Hyd to Cable. What ever floats your boat..

BaSohol, how do you like the Centerforce? And is it the DFX or Dualfriction? I know you race a little and I am looking into upgrading my clutch. Mainly need one for street and light strip use.
