    LS7 clutch kit is the way to go. It is cheap and made by GM, and will handle probably up to around 450rwhp.

    dont fuck around GO WITH A CARTEK if i could do it all again thats what i would do!! I know a few people who beat the piss out of them 50xxx+ miles and they still look new, thats with many track passes. You may say ill never need that i dont plan on having that much power haha, but once you start it dont stop haha just my .02 and there daily driven

    going with the rest as long as your going to keep it pretty much stockish...other wise go ahead and get a beefier clutch like the monster stg3 or equivalant so you wont have to tear into it again
