I am giong to replace the clutch in my 02 TA soon. A few years ago I owned a 96 Camaro SS # 270. I put in a McLoed street twin in and was very happy with it. I see the Spec twin clutch looks compariable the the Street twin. Which should I go with? O by the way Hello I am Josh! No stranger to the F-car world. I have owned 4. Some track time at Beech Bend in KY. I am also looking to buy some headders. Pacesetter looks to be the most pop. I am recalling the benifits of 5/8 head flanges. Are the Hookers worth the $. Coated for sure. Thanks

I don't have any experience with the twin discs, but I have just a RAM clutch in my Camaro (single disc) and it has been great so far. Tomorrow will be the first track day for it, but the first 550 miles have been trouble free.

I want a clutch that will last a LONG time. You should not skimp on a clutch. I had my 96 SS on the dyno in Atlanta at the F-Body gathering and smoked the stock clutch in front of everyone I am worried about my stocker now. Is there anyone running the SPEC twin disc?

I've had my Mcleod single in for like 5 years and 35,000 miles or so and it's never gave up yet.

If you can spend the $, Textralia is the way to go. The strongest and most driveable clutch I install.
If you can afford that route, the LS7 swap is a good option. Will hold about 450 rwhp, drives like stock, but you will lose a little rwhp on the dyno (doesn't really matter) because the clutch assembly is a LOT heavier than an LS1 assembly.Spartan LSX Performance

I just put a spec stage 3+ in my car and no complaints as of yet. I only have 250 miles on it though.

Not really a SPEC fan here either... my personal choice is Textralia...and when my current single disk Tex takes a crap (if ever) I am gonna upgrade to the twin disk Tex and not look back...
so far the single disk doesn't mind the 6200-6500 RPM dumps at the track, grabs like a champ every time. Been in the car for about 17 months and it is a daily driver.
