Ok if you car is 2001-2004 gt you need 11" clutch the center force are pretty good but u can got the spec clutch, spec stage 3 it is the more usual, it is really aggressive and it handle 550-600 HP, u may be not gone to be Thad power but u are ready In case you desire build u car. But center force cost lest

O went u changed make short u flywheel are good, and if good chance to upgrade to the aluminum one u can get some extra HP to the rear wheel and better bite form the clutch.

Just go with the stock Luk replacement. Honestly it has as muck gripping force as a Spec clutch and won't mess up the rest of your clutch parts.

I just say, you can got a king cobra clutch, Thad is the closes one to the factory, a little more strong, but you start to do bolt on, ship and maybe a SC, Thad clutch no gone to hold thad power, so you have to buy other clutch, went u can use Thad money in something else. If you need a clutch get a good one.

And all them have pretty much the same price,

I can't speak for other clutches but the stock has just as much grabbing force as a Spec stage 1, and it won't stretch out the clutch cable like a Spec. I had a buddy snap his quadrant and stretch out the clutch cable cause he had a King Cobra clutch in it.

Yes that's very true. Either way the OP gets to decide. Sorry for arguing.

An upgraded clutch is always nice. However if you aren't planning on pushing a lot of power then why spend the extra money?

I have a brand new king cobra clutch and throw out bearing im willing to sell for $100. It came in a kit but I'm going to put my original one back in, just using the other parts out of the kit. Im not 100% sure if a 95 will fit in 99-04.

Re: Clutch... Lost

For your application. A Spec Stage 1, or OEM 03-04 Cobra clutch setup. Spec Stage 1-2+ do not have much more than a stock pedal feel.

Re: Clutch... Lost

while they are in there if they don't include it... change the throwout bearing as well.. it is like a $40 dollar item so it is well worth it.. the cost to pen it back up later will be $200-$300 in labor...
