I don't drive much back road. Primarily city, mountain roads, or 80 on the highway, so i think the .62 will be good for the car. The car has 4.10s

I don't want to try and be cheap with it, but i am on an extremely tight budget lol. I have to pay $3500 in taxes (no i don't get anything back, i have to pay), and now i have to deal with this. So i'm opening a new credit card that gives me 12 months 0% for first purchases (don't worry i know what i'm doing lol, i have good credit and have my investments to fall back on). So i would love to not have to spend what i don't need to. Just don't want to pull money out of my investments right now while the market is down badly. If it can make a come back in the next few weeks i'll pull some out while its up. But otherwise i will be losing a good chunk.

How's this flywheel?

That overdrive upgrade is an excellent choice for your car.

McLeod makes quality clutch components.

The credit card thing is smart IF you know what you are doing... and you sound like you do.

As for that flywheel... I just paid $150 for a reman'd iron one but I also will not be autox or road racing like you so you might want a lightened one. But on a super tight budget I'd just go for a reman iron if it was me. And I did lol.

Andrew is the only 21 year-old, that I can think of, who can pull that off without paying any interest.

If i do the coyote in a few years then i'll get a nice aluminum racing one then... But for right now i want the car to have zero issues with the trans lol. I'm fine keeping the same amount of weight in the flywheel lol.

And actually i may have to push things a bit quicker so i may be using the Paypal Bill me Later. Which is similar, just 6 months. Which is fine also, that gives me until August. I really do want to cut costs now especially after seeing how much shipping is going to be. Thats like another $250

Or i wonder if i should just keep the stock flywheel but resurfaced. Thats pretty cheap, but i have no idea where to get that done lol.

That would be the most economic thing to do.
Most automotive machine shops have the capability to resurface (grind) flywheels. Just call around and get some prices.

Most places around here don't do it now. If you can find a place, it'll be $60... but then you have to wait. If you want to do it all at once then that won't fly. Again, hopefully Soccer has lift access... I would not want and will NEVER do a t45/3650 on my back.

Luckily i am 21 and pretty fit so it probably would be easier on me than you.... But yeah i would love to find lift access lol. I found a few places that will do it. One place is around $35-45 i believe, so i will probably go there when the time comes.

I wonder if i should replace the clutch fork also. What are the chances that the clutch fork would actually need to be replaced?

Also, probably not going to replace the trans just yet. The money just isn't there for it. And a local guy that does transmission rebuilds said my 3rd gear could be caused because the clutch might not be disengaging all the way. It does grab extremely low so possibly. But no money for the trans so it doesn't matter anyway....

And for the TOB. What specifically is the one that everyone likes. I have the Ford Racing one in my cart, but is that the same one everyone likes?

Ideally, you want to install a genuine Ford factory throw out bearing. One that is purchased from the parts counter at a dealership, or an online dealership.
The Motorcraft bearing may, or may not, be the same as a Ford Racing. If the Ford Racing has the same part number as the Motorcraft bearing, you can just purchase whichever one is less expensive.

If you can swing it, I think I would (replace the clutch fork). I wish I had replaced mine back when I had my tranny replaced. They reused my original and I think they get a little sloppy after many miles. I think it could cause noise/vibration or wear your TOB a little more than the norm because of any slop it could have. I'd replace the pivot too.

Alright update. Bought everything for it, and my friend agreed to help me out with it. So i get to learn how to swap a clutch. Actually pretty excited. Only have to wait 2 more weeks until spring break lol. I am going through withdrawals not driving the car. Especially since the weather is starting to be really nice around here again. Been in the 70s lately.

Nice! With all the suspension work you've done in the garage, I am uber confident that you will be fine.

Thinking it MIGHT be possible to swing a K member and A arms over summer. Not entirely sure yet. Will have to see how the next couple months go with work. But i've been pushing myself to work 35-40 hours a week while still full time at school. Its definitely really hard, but managing it. Just have absolutely no free time to do anything...

Well be careful not burn yourself out. I'm going to assume you are going to do the MM K member setup so like $2k+ with all the stuffs up front right? Car should be a badass handling car when done. I mean it already is but more.

Already have front coilovers and plates. It's only like $1100 for the other parts, but I wouldn't pay anywhere near that lol. Let's just say it won't cost me much, if anything lmao... I can explain how over PM, since it's work related I don't like posting that on here lol.

At this point I'm only doing things that will go toward the swap.

Is the stock iron flywheel single or dual mast? I asked a shop how much they would charge to resurface and they said $50 for single and $120 for dual... I'm guessing single, but just want to make sure.

I think that some of the newer Mustangs might have dual mass flywheels. Ours are single mass.
Single is better for race car.

Yeah the 11+ ones have dual. I wasn't sure about ours though. I'd love a super light weight one.... I'll put one of those in the yote lol

Sorry, just figured I'd chime in that all the 4.6 and 5.0 motors use the same balanced flywheel. Carry on...
