Clutch recommendations...

So I am doing some research in price and performance on the clutches since that will be soon down the road. What do you guys say about these…

http://www.clutchstar.com/product/ex...s6-z06-ls1-ls6

http://www.f1clutch.com/product/act-gm9-hdss

http://www.tickperformance.com/cente...s6-clutch-kit/

http://www.tickperformance.com/cente...s7-clutch-kit/

http://www.tickperformance.com/spec-...-capacity-599/

The last one is a SPEC Stage 1 and is the cheapest and has extra springs (double sprung) for smoother engagement. If I didn't know the prices I would jump on that one but because of the price I am questonable. What do you guys think?



Also, I don't have any modifications yet plan to do some later. I don't think I will get over 450hp ever. I may only get up to 400hp or so and stick there as my wife may drive this car in emergencies as well.

Thanks.

This clutch with 28lb billet flywheel http://www.tickperformance.com/monst...-capacity-450/

This adjustable master cylinder http://www.tickperformance.com/tick-...r-c5-corvette/

ARP flywheel bolts

That is what I would recommend. You will NEED the adjustable master cylinder because the factory hydraulics are so very terrible and are prone to fail. I also recommend a GM throw out bearing since that is a great time to replace it.

This is what I was leaning toward as well so this helps solidify it.

Thanks for the help.

I am bringing this thread back to life because of a question about this clutch.

What say you about the V-1 Fidanza clutch below?
