    hey guys im about to start working on my 1980 capri and im pulling the motor. im gonna rebuild it only a gasket kit and e303 cam. it has a edlebrock performer intake & edlebrock 600cfm carb, hedman shortys, off road h pipe and dynomax exhaust. it has a world class t5 trans the PO said it was a built trans and has a aftermarket clutch. i call BS but cant do anything about it. im gonna buy a quadrant i have a new clutch cable so if the clutch is saveable ill use it for a while but it needs a clutch it grabs at the last second. so im like 225hp max when i rebuild it what clutch should i get? oh and btw im 17 so you know what this car is going to go threw. i beat the living **** out of my 90 lx it was my first car and im going to completely rebuild it but i need a dd so thats what the capri is for. so what clutch should i get?

    I put in the cheap clutch I bought at the auto parts store back in 2003 and its still going strong. I beat the crap out of my car to. Just look up the break in procedure and dont skimp on other related parts and your good.

    I just installed a King Cobra clutch from CJ Pony Parts this past winter. Got it on sale for about $110 and it works great.

    The King Cobra will be fine.

    Would the exedy Mach 350 stage 1 be a good clutch? It's only $185 and I'm just looking for a good enough clutch.

    King Cobra will be fine. Most important thing IMO is using a new FOMOCO - not aftermarket- clutch cable and a good firewall adjuster - steeda, MM.

    +1 on the Centerforce Dual Friction. The times when I have gotten to drive my car the clamping power and pedal effort is juuust right.
