Default Clutch Help/Experience recommendations

I just installed a cam and have been power hungry lately. As of right now im cam only, 408whp/393wtq. In the near future i'll do heads and a small turbo. I have a 750-800whp goal for the car. With the new added power the stock 80k mile clutch isnt too happy with me. The car is a weekend warrior that sees the 8th mile strip about once or twice a month.

What do you guys recommend?

A Twin disc clutch. McLeod or Monster

If you are going to run a tire at the track and do high RPM clutch dumps a ceramic disc vs a organic disc would put up with that better

If just street driving mostly, get the organic disc...

I was leaning toward the McLeod (great reviews) with light weight aluminum flywheel. Is this something the average gearhead can install in his garage?

I've been very happy with my monster stage 2, and there customer service is great. Either a stage 3 or one of their twin disc would work for you with the twin disc probably being the best option.

Single disc clutch for now

http://www.coloradospeed.com/flywhee...2-p-38031.html

This is equivalent and holds a little more power than the "level 3" "stage 3" "whatever 3" single disc clutches out there.

When you actually get to your power goals.

http://www.coloradospeed.com/?main_p...ha_filter_id=0

go for the street series

or our most popular

http://www.coloradospeed.com/flywhee...gt-p-7384.html

http://www.coloradospeed.com/flywhee...ls-p-6543.html

This is the RXT, I could recommend the RST but according to you numbers, that would be pushing the RST slightly over the edge.

All these clutches are test proven and are not new to the LS market. When you install them, you should be ready to go. You won't be asked to be a guinea pig for test purposes because the clutches have not bee street/strip tested. No need for any adjustable master cylinder needed. The stock is sufficient.

I prefer getting the right clutch for the right HP but in general no. The RXT will be a little harsher due to the type of friction disc they use as opposed to the RST but that is why the RXT holds the power it holds.

I do not recommend single discs on anything over 600 HP. 600+ twin, 600- single.

What do you guys recommend?
Here at Monster we have a lot of options for your setup.

The Level 2 Single is a great clutch for what you have. Its rated for 550WHP/TQ and it retains close to stock drive-ability.

If you want to go overkill with a clutch I would run our LT1-S Street twin. Its rated for 700WHP/TQ, it will out last any aftermarket clutch, and it still retains stock drive-ability, as we as pedal feel.

Give us a shout if you have any questions.(817-750-2000)
