    They all seem to be pretty similar. I just got one. Shopped around and couldn't seem to get away for less than $500.

    I'm still breaking my in, but for what it's worth, it drives just like a factory clutch should.

    Found out mine has an LS7 clutch in it recently...I knew the transmission had been pulled but wasnt sure why. Feels almost identical to the stock ones I've had in the past. In fact, I thought it was stock lol

    Yeah the LS7 one is pretty close to stock and pretty decent unit for near stock horse power levels. But you start messing with the master cylinder or just raising the hp significantly and it will start having issues. It's a self adjusting clutch which is fine on the corvettes. Their power train isn't as hard on the clutch as ours.

    In fact the LS7 is the only replacement available from GM now. Think you can still get some units that were made for the LS2 but the default one for dealerships to get now is the 7. At least that's what my buddy who was a GM tech until last year says. Decided to open his own shop now. Very convenient for me.

    Yeah, same thing with the MAF (85mm is all you could get), and the lifters (LS7 is the standard for all the LS engines).
