    Check out the LS7 clutch kit. Stock pedal feel and better than stock durability, but with much more holding capacity.

    I bought my RAM clutch and pressure plate for about 450. It will defiantly hold, but it also does have a little bit of chatter sometimes.

    I just bought the ram powergrip clutch, it is highly recommended, have heard no bad things, some report occasional chatter and it is rated up to 550 Hp. If you want this clutch you will find it the cheapest at New era performance parts. I just paid 389.95 shipped the clutch itself is shipped from RAM they are a distributor, I researched alot and found no better price.
    Also My trans is at sixspeedsinc and Amber sells these clutches too, I did not find this out until I already bought mine but she says her prices are killer on this setup. Hope this helps
