    In the market for a new clutch

    i'll be needing a new clutch soon, cuz it's slipping. what do you all recommend? I want to get a lightened flywheel so this will be a performace mod as well. My buddy told me not to go with aluminum. what do you all think?

    What kind of power are you making and what do you plan to make in the future?

    if your keeping it no more than 450-475 hp then the LS7 kit would be a great choice, its a lot cheaper too

    I have only bolt on now and plan to get it dynoed next spring. hoping for 330 rwhp. I will get a head and cam swap at some point down the road which i would estimate to put me around 400 rwhp. So i would just like it to hold that. it's for street use only. I don't autoX and have never been to the strip but would like to someday.

    Also, i really want a lightened flywheel because I would like this be a little bit of a performance mod, instead of just getting this beast to do burnouts again.
