Manual Transmission - 97 LT1 Camaro needs clutch
03-26-2012, 09:14 PM
I don't want to spend money just to spend it, so I'm asking how much clutch do I need? Midly modified headers, cam, cold air cat back ect. Car made 348rwhp on dyno. Clutch went last night on a 2-3 up shift. What clutch would suit my needs.

I went with a Ram Power Grip. This is the clutch that came out of the car. http://i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy44/rodinator1234/089c36e5.jpg

I had also got a ram power grip, installing it this weekend. Where did you get it at? I went with summit and got a complete kit.

I got it from Summit as well. I like it so far just a little grabby right off the bat on first test drive.

Looks like the one you have still has another 50000 miles in it..
I like my Spec clutch, not sure how expensive they are compared to others.

Hey Spec...what is the point of the Spec 4 clutch these days? When the 3 is rated for the same torque and the 3+ is rated for more?

The Stage 4 is for those seeking the lightest disc option. The fact that is forgoes the sprung hub, and that is is available in 6, 4, and 3-puck variations, makes it great for folks that road-race, drift or that simply want the lightest rotational mass possible.

We have about the same power so perhaps I can help.
At that power you'll be fine with an AutoZone replacement. I had one for a long time and it worked great - I only took it out because I needed trans work done and I figured I'd upgrade while I was in there.
I just put in a Spec Stage 2 and while I only have 100 miles on it so far, I REALLY like it too. Very good build quality and packaged really well. I only went with this over the AutoZone because I am installing N2O and needed a higher torque rating then.

I agree I probably could have used a stock clutch there was no evidence of any slip hot spots or such. I think my failure was directly related to a bad pilot bearing. Which allowed the input shaft to walk for lack of a better term And caused the clutch disk at the center to flange connection to weaken an rip out. I replaced the bearing with a pilot bushing input shaft looked good micked at.590 new bushing was.593 so 3 thou for slip fit. I did not set up a dial indicator and spin the shaft to see if it was bent. But visably and feel it felt good. I bought the ram for insurance in the future. I like it so far though.
