    I have a 93 Mustang right now making 570 RWHP, but will be going up to around 700 RWHP in the next year. I have to change my clutch/flywheel/belhousing due to SFI requirements. It has a older McLeod twin disc right now that isn't working properly. What clutch would everyone recommend?

    A new McLeod twin disc that works properly. Spec also makes a twin-disc clutch. If you are planning to drive the car on the street, a twin disc is really the only way to go at those power levels.

    I think you're just silly :D
    A manual valve body automatic gets my vote :cool:

    As the others have said Mcleod twins are your best bet for a stick car at that level and should hold right around a 1,000 ft/lbs of torque

    A manual valve body auto is definitely next on my list if/when I blow up my Tremec.
