Mt82

At what point do I need to get clutch and driveshaft? I will have the boss manni and 3.73 gears with a tune here shortly. And with these mt82's is there more that needs to be done to them beside clutch and drive shaft when getting into big hp?

I don't plan on doing anything until it's necessary, just wondering at what point it IS necessary. Lol

Re: Mt82

Drive shaft is good unless you have a V6. Not sure where the clutch gives up the ghost but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not too far past stock power levels.

I would say the clutch should be one of the next things you do

Re: Mt82

I'd say, unless you're on a power adder, don't bother with replacing anything.

Replace the clutch for sure. Driveshaft will be fine. I did mine for peace of mind and to drop a little weight.
