    For that price??
    Can't be a very solid clutch. Let me know what brand if possible.

    Textralia is one of the better kits...but they aren't cheap.

    ?? I will probably have to replace the clutch soon so I would like to know which 1 would be a good one to get... Did any of those brands make a good clutch for the 6spd in the LS1's?

    Cool Clutch

    I would bought the centerforce dual fricton and WOULDNT by any other brand... They make a great product and my launches are much harder... Make sure that you get a flywheel too... many times the flywheel develops hotspots and its better to bet on the side of caution instead of gettin it all apart and realizing you need one

    Ram clutches are REALLY expensive though... Centerforce is the best bang for your buck.. I got mine for about 400 through summit..

    supposed to be a direct bolt on/bolt in. only other thing recommended are new master and slave cylinders if you have the issue of you clutch pedal sticking to the floor under hard acceleration...

    yeah, ive heard only good thing about the gm clutches for close to stock power levels.

    I know centerforces for other cars I've owned have been less than satisfactory.

    I have it, and as SSwt00SS said its a 100% direct bolt in. No adapter or modification needed.

    gm parts direct has it pretty cheap, and they are a sponsor. They have the LS7 clutch and matching LS2 flywheel for $464.55 w/ shipping
    www.gmpartsdirect.com

    and the clutch line would come on the master cylinder which is a sperate cost. Don't forget a slave cylinder too.

    I have talked to many diff. performance products sites including summit and jegs and every one of them said for a street application they recommend you NOT get and alluminum flywheel. I went ahead and bought the billet steel one through centerforce and i love it..

    The Alum., flywheels are lighter, but they are also weaker than the steel ones.
