Car I have is a 95 gt.
Engine is being rebuilt so I'm changing the clutch while I'm at it aswell.
-The transmission is a tremec t56.
The clutch cable is deteriorated and needs to be replaced. Which is the best choice? MUSTANG MAXIMUM MOTORSPORTS CLUTCH CABLE, QUADRANT, & FIREWALL ADJUSTER KIT (82-04) ?

Also which clutch would you guys recommend for a street car?
-The shop I'm getting all my work done at suggested to possibly swap to a hydraulic clutch setup.

Any input is great guys. Thanks for the read.

A hydraulic clutch is nice but it will be 3 times the money or more.

Now how much hp/tq is your combo going to be putting out? That will decide what clutch will be in your future.

I would say around 330 to 400rwhp if I'm lucky.
It's a 93 block
The engine is getting a stroker package but isn't being pushed to the ragged edge at all.
Not sure which cam they're using but I've been told it's mild for the street,
Not a letter cam
Getting performer heads cleaned up.
Using Trick flow street heat intake.

Performer heads 1.90 or 2.02 ?
Also that street intake is gonna hold ya back some.
A spec 2 is a nice clutch.

Street heat is fine, those heads only flow 230 cfm or so. Don't convert to a hyd setup that is a waste of money. The mm kit is perfect. The exedy mach 400 is a real good clutch for not going over stock block power.

Yeah Scotty but he is gonna stroke it so there will also be some good down low torque. Plus that intake is a killer of power on a stroker as well as the GT40.

If he is using Performers, they only flow 230-240cfm which is less than a ported GT40. He is bottlenecking the motor with those heads and what might be a too small cam (unknown) so there is no reason to go with a crazier intake than a ported GT40. The Mach 400 in the 10.5" size is good for around 450ft lbs. He'll be well under than without a power adder.

For a 331 or 347 stroker, the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM head should be an AFR185 or TFS 190. Those Eddys will flow less than an AFR 165 or TFS 170... And I'm not bashing the Eddy Performer heads, I had a set once myself. They're good heads on a 302 but not anything bigger. If you want Eddys on a bigger motor you jump up to the Victor Jrs and larger.

Good info guys, I appreciate it. I know it probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense to use those eddys, and that intake with this rebuild I'm having done.

Parts I've had from the past, I have a Eddy upper and lower intake as well but you can definitely tell the ports are small on that rather than the trickflow sh

Maybe I shouldn't of paid the extra$ to do the stroker package for such a mild kind of setup,
The motor needed a rebuild regardless though.
In the future least there's room for a bit more performance if I ever want to spend more hard earned $ lol.

Well then you will have a good base for when money arises. Do what the budget allows.

I would have just found the lowest mileage explorer motor I could, swapped all my stuff over and sold off the GT40 stuff to make my money back. Probably could do a replacement motor for free that way.

Indeed I hear yah,

For a street convertible that's gonna be a lifer , plenty of torque for me

I guess if I need more power I could ditch the b cam and heads and step it up but I don't see that happening

At the end of the day as long as it's reliable I am a happy camper

What's the minimum size injector you'd run with this?

A B can is marginal at best for a decent breathing 302 so for a 347 you will definitely need way more cam. A custom cam is just a few bucks more and it will give you better driveability and also more power. Win Win in my book.
