same with me man. My clutch is going. I always smell clutch when I get out of my car... Im going with the Fidenza 2.1. Ive heard they last forever, and driveability on them are really good. Only thing is ive heard it chatters for the first 300-400 miles then the chatter goes away, must be a result in the break in.

If you go Spec, Id go stage 2. Ive heard stage 1 sucks and always chatters. But that could just depend on how you break it in.

I've heard bad things about spec 1. I've also heard spec 2+ is ok.

I bought a RAM and had it installed. Relatively quiet. Very light pedal. (I actually wish it was much harder to press in). Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the RAM. Just make sure whatever you go with, is going to work with the plans you have for the car(future mods).

I had a spec stg 2 in my car when i first got it and it chattered like crazy. I just installed a fidanza 2.1 and am still in the break in stage but i really like it allot so far.

i put in a fidenza 2.1 and im lovin it so far just make sure you dont forget to get the adjuster kit but i had a bad experience with the steeda clutch cable it ripped a couple weeks ago (lasted 4 month) bought a Maximum Motorsports cable and for some reason the clutch feels a lot better now....hopefully this one holds up a little longer

I like my centerforce DF....rated for 650 ft/lbs and light as a feather...if my dumb ass woulda resurfaced/replaced the flywheel when I had it apart I would never have to take it back appart again....

thanks guys. i wanna get some bolt-ons for more HP like U/D pullys, TB+Plenum things like that but nuthin drastic, like turbo or boost just yet. So i just need a clutch that will grab good when im bangin gears and daily driving. I also plan on gettin a B&M short shifter, any opinions on that?

My King Cobra clutch has been 100% trouble-free since install. It feels exactly like the stock clutch, too (probably because it's damn near the same).

Running a Fidanza 2.1 as well and absolutely love it.

+1 mgw is the best shifter out there too.

MGW?! Never heard of it... It is cheaper than B&M tho. The only reason i mention B&M is because i kno theyve been around for a long ass time but hey if you're sayin MGW is better ill def check it out :)

Mustang Short Throw Shifter
Its not cheaper but its worth it IMO.. Ive had and driven with a few different shifters and the mgw is by far my favorite, its so smooth and the adjustability is awesome..
