Changing Clutch next month

Need help.
This clutch is the same size and spline count as the one below
RAM HDX Clutch (Late 01-04 Mustang GT, 99-04 Cobra, and 03-04 Mach 1) 88951HDX - Free Shipping!
---------------------------
RAM HDX Clutch (94-04 Mustang V6) 88467HDX - Free Shipping!
Is american muscle organizing the product and naming the specs different so that the v6 people spend more money?

What year is your stang? I know the GT's have a different size clutch between 2000 and 2001; might be the same for V6.

Spline count is different. The pressure plate won't bolt to your flywheel either. Suck it up and get a V6 clutch. Get a flywheel to. Or atleast shim yours if you get it resurfaced.

Find out the exact amount they take off. Install shims that thickness between the crank and flywheel. Other wise you can have gear engagement issues.

My 3/8 impact works great. The first time I did it was with an arm ratchet..

What kind of impact?
