Re: clutch

No personal experience with it but every review I read raves about it. Supposedly has great driveability for the street but is much stronger than stock. I read some reviews of the Stage 1 saying it wasn't much better than stock and I didn't want to go Stage 3 because I wanted good driveability...and then I decided to trade in, so didn't take the plunge. Will likely choose it if I need one for my next Mustang.

It depends on what upgrades you're lookin at doin soon. I started off with gears and a tuner on mine you shouldn't need a better clutch until you get closer to full bolt-ons.

Yeah that's what I've heard. Full bolt ons are anything that doesn't start requiring you to tear into the engine. Heads are tearing into it. I'd probably say that if you are doing long tubes then do a stage 2 clutch along with that install. How fast are you planning on getting the heads?
