New Throw out bearing

Bbk o/r x installed. Yes! Now onto my noisy throw out bearing. I was wondering what all to upgrade, since going thru all that trouble just to replace the throw out bearing seems like a PITA. Parts and what brands to use. As I no nothing about transmissions.

Clutch and pressure plate, clutch fork, pivot ball, throw out beating, pilot bearing, replace or resurface flywheel

For tob and pull-out bearing use Ford racing. Same for clutch fork and pivot ball.

As for clutch it really depends...I put an exedy stage 2 with exedy flywheel in mines, I like it

A grand in parts and labor sound about right. No all in one kit that I know of.

You can save a couple hundred bucks by just getting your flywheel resurfaced (cost maybe $20-30).

Don't want to skimp on the tob, pilot bearing, or other stuff I mentioned make sure you get Ford racing parts.

You can go with a Auto parts store replacement clutch too if you don't have any future hp gains, but my opinion is if your doing the tent might as well spend a hundred extra bucks to get an after market performance clutch

Future plans for car are just full bolt ons and cams. Nothing crazy. All i know is my tob is becoming more noticeable in 1st and very squeaky.

Would a perfection clutch from advance be okay?

At the most I'll end up with cams.. I don't plan forced injection.. So I'm looking at 300hp Max a stock replacement would work fine.. And personally I'd rather the clutch be the weak link in my trans.. I'd rather put in a clutch then rebuild a trans..

I was looking to get the exedy mach 350 stage one clutch. Seems like it would fit my needs. Comes with a TOB and pilot i think.

Never use a TOB that comes with those kits , they are cheap/junk .. Always put a ford one in there ,
