While building my stroker motor, some how we got a windsor crank in my romeo block. and i put a spec stage one clutch in with a new spec flywheel. its now time to replace my clutch with a better preformance clutch beings i've got well over 350 hp at the crank. My lovely fiance has decided to get me a new clutch and a wedding band for christmas. i told her that i would order it off of american muscle to save her some money.

So question is, what clutch should i have her order? because of the flywheel difference i need to look at the 99-mid 01 clutches right? What one would be best for my mods?

Flywheels are the same for 96-04 GTs, just 6 or 8 bolt. The clutch will depend on what transmission you have... It says you have an 01 so you need to find out if it's a late or early model, and whether you have the T45 or T3650.

This will help you with that if you don't know already:

When it comes to buying a Mustang clutch or a Mustang shifter, it is important to be able to identify which manual Mustang Transmission is installed in your car. Please note that Ford not only changed the type of transmissions used in different year and model mustangs, but also changed the size of the clutch disk as well.
In order to identify what kind of Mustang transmission you have, you need to check the door tag on your drivers side door jam. If you look down to the bottom right of the tag, you should see an area labeled "TR." Underneath this label there are 5 letters and numbers. The only one that we are concerned with is the first alpha-numeric character which corresponds to your Mustang Transmission.
If you have a 6 as your first digit, you have five-speed manual, T-45 OD Mustang Transmission. This is the standard Mustang transmission that is found in 1996 to Mid 2001 Mustang GTs as well as 1996 to 1998 Mustang Cobras. If you have a 5 as your first digit, your car came with a T-5 OD Mustang transmission. Finally, if you have a K as the first digit in the "TR" code, you have a TR-3650. This Mustang Transmission is found in mid-2001 to 2004 Mustang GT, the 2003 and 2004 Mach1 and the 2001 Cobra. The 2005-2007 manual Mustang GT's also a T-3650.

I know i've got the tr3650, which i believe takes the 10.5" clutch, what i was wondering is if the clutch bolt pattern will be the same between flywheels?

You need an 11" clutch for a 3650. And there are no bolts on the clutch, just the pressure plate, and yes they will be the same.

I like my fidanza 2.1, easy to drive and rated at 500ft/lbs, but everyone is going to have a different oppinion on clutches, its just like gears and shifters.
