Hey guys I have a 02 Explorer or something that has a 5.0 HO in it with 10k miles my lil bro said it will bolt up and its only 300$ and he has a clutch for me for 200$ brand new stage 1 I think is this a good deal and will it hook up right?

I just got this car and i dont know how good the engine is so i figured Id get a new one for such a cheap price

If you ever have the transmission or motor out, replace the clutch. Standard procedure.

check for any leaks that you cant see with it in like the freeze plug or intake manifold

The clutch is kinda weird. It's like "Damn, that guy just smoked me. How!?"

Then you're driving home and your car just stops accelerating. Happened to me in one night about a year ago, no warning whatsoever. Every 100k, replace it. I for one advocate the NOT miserable to drive clutch(king cobra). Just go with a real heavy OEM replacement. It's half as much money and shifts just as hard, half as long. Gets you under your car more. Knowledge is power!
