    The clutch is out of my '96. It has a Procharger and makes about 425 horsepower at the wheels. Does anyone have a recommendation for a clutch that can take the abuse but still offer decent pedal effort/driveability?

    I have been looking at the F1 stage 3 clutches on eBay with both the Fidanza flywheel and the chromoly flywheels. I also had been on the American Powertrain website (http://americanpowertrain.com/c-284724-shop-by-category-clutches-coming-soon.html) but they pulled down all of their clutch info that was on the site. They were pricey, but offered some high horsepower/torque clutch kits. Any input would be appreciated!

    The SPEC Stage 2+ would handle the power and has decent pedal feel to it, its a full faced clutch. Otherwise McLeod does have some similar options that will work as well...

    I run a Spec stage III and have had good luck with it. The pedal feel is not bad at all, but the clutch will chatter some, depending on how it is adjusted.
