Hawk pads are probably the best non oem pad available and as for the clutch...I would absolutely suggest an oem if your not planning any power upgrades in the future but if so, McLeod RST or RXT if you track your car are the best money can buy unless you all out drag race

Dang...is it the stock clutch?
I would go with the McLeod RXT...can easily handle 1000hp and has a lighter than stock peddle feel

Haha...all to well! I think your best bet would be the RXT...from the research I've done, it is the best clutch available and feels like a hydraulic setup...your wife will love it! I myself will be getting one in the next few weeks...only thing is, they're hella expensive!

Every aftermarket distributor has them and they usually run around $900 without a flywheel...for a complete kit about $1200 +-

Before doing a clutch, find out how much hp you have, as clutches are rated to handle a set amount.
Is that, " about 850 " crank or wheel " ?
.
When I did my clutch, my tuner pointed me toward a Spec..

That's another reason I suggest a McLeod Twin desk, you more then likely aren't going to exceed the 1000hp rating and it won't harm your flywheel if you are lower down in the output rating....lots of stock or near stock '03/04 cobras running the 1000hp rated RXT without problems and have a butter smooth engagement!
