Clutch cable suggestions??

I have a 2000 GT with a vortech blower and 3.73 gears. I will be using a Maximum Motorsports quadrant and a firewall adjuster (so cable doesn't have to be adjustable). I want ones that you all have tried and that don't stretch like some crappy aftermarket cables do

I have been running the ATP cable from Advance Auto Parts ($69) for nearly 2 years, with a RAM HDX clutch (rated for 450 lb-ft)--with no problems of any sort.

My OE cable was damaged by a sharp edge on an aftermarket quadrant (read more about that here). Needing a replacement NOW and fully prepared to order a Ford cable down the road (no pun intended), I bought the ATP cable--however I found it to be just as good as the OEM unit, well made from good materials, and never ordered the Ford cable--that was 45k miles ago...

Tried and true. OEM has a long history of being better than the rest. I'm switching out my FRPP adjustable cable later this spring/summer, even though it's got ~3,000 miles on it.

Good choice! I'm pretty sure the Maximum Motorsports kit uses an OEM cable.

Clutch Cable, Quadrant, and Firewall Adjuster Package

Info on the MM cable
