I've never actually had one, but I've heard a lot of people say that they are junk.

Depends how much power you are putting down. They are good otherwise.

Spec stage 2 or 2+ probably for your car.

modular2valve on here blew out 2 within 6 months or so...all he was running was a PI swapped 96 GT. One came apart completely leaving a pile of crumbs on the ground under the car.

That's pretty much the same type of stuff I've heard. People shattering them with power levels much lower than they are rated for. Especially on the 5.0s.

Re: HELP

I've had nothing but spec's in my car since the stocker crapped out. I've been through a few but that's more because of my style of driving, lack of proper cable adjustment, and being over the rated HP limit of the clutch. All in all, they are a real good clutch.

Sounds like a tranny problem. Not clutch. If it was the clutch it wouldn't disengage and the car would lurch..k edit. Maybe not. And as far as clutches I suggest google. I have read really good and bad about spec. I have a centerforce df and love it but I have also heard horror stories about them. If your at stock hp I would just stick with oem.

Spec stage 2 or 2+ should be good. They are all hit or miss. Spec, centerforce, ram. A good break in is key. Not sure how much hp your car had stock. Get a clutch that is rated above what you have though.

Easy stop and go city driving for a few hundred miles. You're gonna want to put your foot in it but you have to take it easy for a bit. I only have a couple hundred miles on mine and haven't went full throttle yet. It's smoothing out the more I drive it and so far it feels good. I have a spec stage 3+ in mine.

On my 03 Gt when I push the clutch in all the way in there is a sound like a small pop. The car runs good and shifts fine. Just wondering what it is. It happens when the car running and when its not running?

Oh ok I got one last question. When I purchase the clutch and the quadrant adjuster do I also buy the pilot and TOB

If you buy a clutch kit, odds are it will come with the pilot and possibly TOB. When I Bought my Spec 3+ kit it came with both of those items. I didn't use the TOB because the spec one is not as sturday as the OEM ford piece, so I bought a ford one for like $25.

But I would say yes, buy them both if they don't come with your clutch when you buy it.

Re: HELP

Yeah, those are the kind of things they should have in stock. If not, it wouldn't take long to get them.

Or if you want, I can point you to a place that will have 10% over stock pricing but it's $14 shipping so it kind of kills the discounts.

Hey if you wouldn't mind pointing me in that direction that would be great! I gotta do that whole setup as well.....would you guys recommend I just resurface my flywheel or get a new one? And if I should get a new one what are the differences between the billet steel and billet aluminum other than weight?

How many miles on your car? I would say under about 80k get it resurfaced. The place resurfacing it can look at it and let you know if it's worth resurfacing.

You're only gonna get a couple resurfaces out of a flywheel. I'm sure it's been through a few clutches also. Not sure what flywheel is in your car though. Mine is aluminum but yours might be steel. Not sure.
