    I just got the LS7 clutch put in yesterday. I like it a lot. It's a little stiffer than stock, but not much. I'm very pleased with it.

    Got mine from KY Speed.

    i have the centerforce dual friction and have had zero problems and have put it through some serious abuse but I would probably say the ls7 as well.

    Screw both those options, trust me the LS7 will eventually bite you in the ass. I jumped on one about 3yrs ago while my hydrolics were working fine, now my master is on the way out & the adjustable pressure plate on the LS7 assembly is stopping me from just installing a better master.

    Look into a Diamond clutch set-up, they are getting great reviews & have a non-adjustable pressure plate. Pricing is very good as well.

    If I had known & been informed of potiential future issues thankx to the adjustable pressure plate I would have avoided this set-up. That & once it does go, the LS7 pressure plate is all you can use with the required LS2 flywheel. So you cant just replace the pressure plate & disc in the future, you'll need a flywheel as well, stock or aftermarket your choice.

    Yea, figured I'd at least throw this info out there since its just recently comming to light on other forums & drivetrain shops are backin up the bad news about the adjustable plates too.

    That would be b/c many vendors were pushing these clutches as a upgrade from stock for the same price as a stock replacement when they hit the market. No one had tried & tested the adjustable pressure plates. But everyone knew it would work with a stock unit. So lots of people just like myself jumped on them & were still using a stock master.

    Then when it starts acting up & you start tryin to replace hydrolic components & nothing fixes it after a new slave & master you get to discover its the adjustable plate comming back to bite you. Some people have even tried installing another new stock master & it still not working properly.

    Supposedly the pressure plate can be reset but no guarentee it'll work. And you need a press to engauge all the fingers on the plate like a slave is pushing on it to get the blocks back to OE dimensions.

    I had a Centerforce clutch back in my import days & it held just fine. In these cars I have seen them work on par with a stock clutch but not hold up too well on a car modded with H/C/I, but I have not personally ran a Centerforce clutch in a LS1 powered vechicle, only read reviews on them.
