I'm running spec 3+ with factory flywheel.

Go with a twin disk setup for best driveability and comfort

If you're looking for a solid daily driving vehicle I would suggest excedy which what I went with. It's just like oem but better in every aspect. I just had the stock flywheel resurfaced. Check them out at American muscle

Lol. You don't want to see the price of a twin disk then...if you are planning more power you're gonna need a good clutch. Go ahead and upgrade to 26 spline input shaft and mcleod retaining sleeve.

I'll be honest and say I thought you had a terminator. For the 01 cobra I don't really know what clutch to recommend.

Lol. These guys are going way overboard. A steel flywheel is a little more progressive for dd use so rake your pick on that. Fidanza makes a nice flywheel in both steel and aluminum if you really want an upgrade. Odds are your stock one can be resurfaced (available on AM.) as for clutch, i would look at the excedy mach 400. Good stock feel, better gripping power. I personally have always been disappointed with spec products. I always recommend getting the ford racing TOB pilot bearing and upgraded shift fork. If you're near stock power your input shaft is fine.

Ok, so im keeping the stock flywheel. Im not replacing the input shaft but i may replace the bearing. I have a OE fork and pivot ball already aside.

So far i hear Spec and Excedy... Any opinions on Ram... Centerforce... ACT... or even any tested Ebay brands. **i know ebay is well ebay but somethings just work out**

I agree with everything that blue said.

However the question was what is the best flywheel clutch combo and for me its what I listed.

The centre force clutches are great but they are more expensive for what you really get. They grab really hard at high rpm and are easier at low rpm thanks to their centrifugal weight system. For a dd I would stick to a traditional clutch like the excedy. You have to replace the throw out bearing when you do the clutch. It's the only thing I don't like about the excedy stuff. It's a cheap tob. Pop for the ford racing one.
