My OEM clutch is fairly new and seems pretty strong. If I were you, with those long tube headers, I wouldn't skimp AT ALL on any of the clutch parts. In fact, I'd move heaven and earth to find all of the best and most reliable parts that I could find. That trans won't be easy to remove with the headers. I understand that the OEM Cobra clutch is extremely strong. Might want to look into that.

Yes. I believe it's the clutch used in the Termi. Scotty or someone else will know. Mine is still good, I haven't looked into it that much.

Yes, might need to get a different fly though!! 10.5" clutch to an 11".... But if your clutch is still good im sure you can get a few passes out of it on slicks until it shatters lol.

No. Apparently Pro-Motion Powertrain sells the 03-04 11 inch Cobra clutch with a 10 spl disc that will work with all the existing parts.

Do the 3650 and the t56 have the same amount of splines on the input shaft? I thought they were different.

Yeah. I was just looking at Pro Motion Powertrain's website. They can set you up with the Termi set-up or anything else under the sun it looks like. Ill be looking at them when it comes time for a clutch on my car. They have some neat stuff, mild to wild...

Wait, why am I getting summoned in here? Cliffy probably forgot more than I know about Stangs lol.

Besides, use the Google, she knows much.





























As long as you have a 3650 in there from the factory you are using an 11" flywheel. They ALL use 10 spline input shafts from the T-5 days on up so that is the same. For launching on slicks honestly the KC style/Terminator clutch should be fine unless you are making some serious power. Or just convert to automatic and come off the line harder than you ever thought possible...
