    IMO, I would say King Cobra or Spec 3 FTW.

    Spec 3 will eat your T-5 alive....dual friction is excellent. I run the centerforce stage 2 on mine 315/350 to the wheels and she's holding up nicely with excellent engagement and fairly mild pedal effort.

    I ordered the King Cobra. Has been holding up well for me. It is stiffer than some of the others, but I don't really mind.

    the motorsport hd clutch is a good clutch but its pretty stiff. wears your leg out after alot of stop and go in town driving. centerforce dual friction isnt as stiff but has a little pedal effort. the king cobra is about the same pedal effort as the centerforce. had a hays hd clutch in the 84. it was pretty smooth and kept up with me bashing the car all over the place lol.

    i have a KC and it works great! no sense in getting to strong of a clutch. its best to keep the clutch the weak point in the drivetrain especially with a t5....
