    need to get a new clutch

    i have a bone stock 99 TA and its time to replace my clutch. i dont expect any bigs mods anytime soon so i just want a good clutch that will get me by for now. i want something that has smooth engagement and isnt going to make any chatter. any ideas? i've been laid off for over a month and i just found out yesterday that i wont be called back to work because of company wide cut backs so im just waiting for my taxes to come back and i will have around $700 to play with BUT i dont wanna spend over $400 if i dont have to. so i guess im looking for a good clutch for not a lot of money. i looked into SPEC and read a lot of bad reviews so im kinda worried to go with them. but any advice will help. thanks!

    sounds like you're looking for the LS7 clutch. you can get the whole setup with clutch, pressure plate, and LS2 flywheel from Scoggin Dickey Performance Center for not much over 400 IIRC

    thanks for the advice, this made it real easy trying to figure out which clutch to go with. not a bad price for everything either!

    Is the LS7 flywheel as light as some other ones, or is it negligible? i think ill upgrade to the LS7 kit eventually.

    how does the LS7 kit compare to $1000 clutches?

    LS7 is one of the best clutches for the money. Its 2.5 pounds heavier than the stock ls1 flywheel.

    Here's all u need to kno on the LS7
    LS7 clutch kit info for your F-body

    BTW I just upgraded mine to the LS7, and very happy with the pedal feel and performance. Goodluck

    KY speed has about the best price on the LS7, and will also price match. They were a pleasure doing business with.
