Need new clutch

Alright so I have a 03 gt with minor bolt ons so nothing crazy but I do drive it kinda hard and my clutch just have out on me so I'm in need of a new clutch and was wondering what the big difference is from a performance one from American muscle and a clutch I could just pick up from autozone. Will I feel any difference from a cheaper one or?

There's a ton of options to choose from, depending on what route you want to take with your Mustang. It sounds like the clutch you're looking at from Autozone is just an OE replacement, correct? If so, this clutch won't hold up to anymore power than before. I don't suggest this, as you mentioned your aggressive driving style.

There's no need to go over kill either! We carry a few clutches that are designed to be stronger than stock, but not stiff as a rock. The Exedy 350 will suit your perfectly! It's rated for 430ft-lbs of torque and has excellent street manners. This also gives you room to add more mods down the road and still handle the power!

Hope any of this info helps you out. If there's any other questions I can answer, let me know!

Thanks for sharing guys! The Exedy 400 is a perfect clutch if you're planning to add boost down the road. It holds 510 ft-lbs of torque and still maintains easy street manners. The Exedy 400 is just a little stiffer than the 350 series.

I too am running the Mach400 clutch, in my 04 GT. It behaves basically the exact same as my stock clutch did. I will mention not to follow Ford's torque specs on the pressure plate bolts since I'm here, though. I did, and had to use a frankenstention (two extensions and a swivel) to tighten them down through the inspection plate on the trans after the install.. go German spec, gutentite!

It's expensive but I went the RAM dual disk clutch and it's freaking crazy.
