    Does anyone know if the Ford Racing HD throwout bearing for 1996-up is that much different or stronger than the stock replacement I can buy from Ford? thx

    Not sure about the stock one but the one I took off my car was a pos compared to the FRPP one. I have a picture somewhere. I bought it so I wouldn't have to do it again. Extra security

    Good point. Thx. Just out of curiousity, did you replace the pilot bearing and rear main seal as well?

    Yeah. I just used the pilot bearing that came with my Spec clutch but threw the TOB in the trash. The main seal is real easy to replace so you might as well replace it while it's out. There 6 or 8 bolts that hold it in (plus the two on the bottom in the pan) and the whole plate comes out making it a snap to replace.
