Clutch and flywheel

Last Sunday, my clutch decided to go out in my 2000 Mustang GT. I'm just going to replace the flywheel along with the clutch. My question to you guys is, what clutch/flywheel combo would you reccommend? I drive my car daily, but race on the weekends. I'm looking at a Ford Racing clutch and flywheel because it the cheapest on American Muscle, and it's Ford. Also, what else do I need for a clutch job other than a clutch tool.

That's a good flywheel but pricey. You need an 8 bolt flywheel being a 2000 though. And that flywheel supports 10.5 and 11" clutches so upgrade to an 11" clutch. You don't need anything else to go up to an 11".

Get that one. It comes with an alignment tool.

Besides that... fluid, a good lithium grease and a good 4 letter vocabulary.

edit: Also you need a new exhaust flange gasket for the passenger shorty header, you'll need a bunch of extensions to make a literally 3-4 foot extension to get to the top bolts with the trans tilted down and you'll need an impact gun to get the flywheel off.

If you can, rent some lift time. If you are military or know anyone in the military, your local base/post should have a shop where you can rent a lift for $5/hr. If not... see if there are any shops around you that rent lift time. I would NOT recommend doing this on your back although people do it... Doing a trans is not really that hard, its just time consuming and you pretty much need a helper. I was able to do it in 3.5 hours last time from the time the car rolled up to the lift to the time it backed out.

The clutch and flywheel I linked were cheaper. But what's this about the passenger exaust? I havn't heard of this. And I have access to a shop at school, which's outfitted with lifts and the tools I need.

And the one I linked to is better but its up to you. The one you linked to will be fine for your power level.

The passenger header is a flat flange, not a ball/socket. There is a $6 metal gasket that goes in between the mid pipe and the header. Also the nuts that hold that header to the mid pipe are a ***** to remove.

The problem is, my header is welded to my x-pipe, and the rest of the connections are welded.

Well hopefully that was a previous owner and not you that did that because that's not very smart... like... REALLY not smart...

Going to likely have to cut off the midpipe and then replace the headers and then a new midpipe and weld in new flowtubes to the catback. I'd have to see a pic of it.
