    I would highly recommend you stay away from the Spec myself. For that kind of money you can get a McLeod. Which is a alot better clutch with a better warranty and you won't have any issues with it if there is ever a problem.

    look for a new stock LS7 clutch from GM. I got one for my camaro and it is great. very driveable, but should have no problem with your h.p. output. It is also probably the best buy that you will find compared with aftermarket stuff like Spec and Centerforce. Oh, makesure that you replace the slave cylinder while its apart, if you don't, you will regret it later when it dumps fluid all over your new clutch and flywheel causing you to replace both.

    great,thanks guys. i had my eye on the ls7 clutch. just wasnt sure if it could hold the hp. it being a stock clutch, im sure its very driveable and should get more than 30,000 miles. unlike most aftermarket clutches. (ive heard)

    I have heard that with some mods, the new Z06's have clutch grip problems, and with you pushing about the same hp or more, I would go with what lsxtuner said. I don't have any experience with them but I've heard the Textralia clutches are good as well...???

    I personally have the ls7 kit, and it holds great for a pretty much stock car (cam/lts/ory coming soon) and I'm sure it will hold for my future mods.

    stage 4 - 700 ft lbs tq capacity - 3800 psi pressure plate
    Types of Driving: Drag, Drift, Road Race, Rallye, Pulling, Circle Track

    For heavily modified engines or engines of any modification level being used in the above driving environments, where an instantaneous engagement and light weight are beneficial. Not street-friendly due to harsh engagement.

    I just put mine in with a new Spec Flywheel 250 miles ago. I love it and there is no chatter. It does engage pretty firmly and make sure you do the drill mod if you do change to this clutch. Read my mods in my signature.

    If you are unsure you can go with a Spec stage 3+. They are a little more street friendly but about $100 more.
