Ok guys time to buy the new clutch and I would like some input.
I daily drive it when there is no snow,I don't like the girl pedal of the stock clutch plus it can't handle shifting second in a burn out I start to spin the clutch,but that might be the good tires I have they just hook up an go.
In the clutch I would like a tougher spring hub cause I think springless is just to ruff. Maybe a light weight flywheel with a replaceable sleave. New slave and TO bearing
I would like to have input from the guys that have tried different setups an see what kind you likes and didn't like

It does have a super chip in it the car was dyno'd by the past owner at 393 hp at the rear I would like to put a nice cam an set of heads plus LT's aswell as a double roller timing setup an better oil pump but haven't really looked into any of that yet I would love some input on that aswell.
An what is the drill mod?

Here's what I did and my car is mostly stock and a daily driver-
GM Pilot Bearing, Rear main set, main shaft seal, slave cylinder and throw out bearing
ARP flexplate and flywheel bolts
TICK adj. master cylinder and remote bleeder
and just for poops and giggles- Hurst Billet Pro shifter and bronze shifter cup bushing
Just finished the install and it friggin' rocks. My logic was go big on the peripherals (Tick MS, remote bleeder, Hurst shifter) so I won't have to replace them again or at least can rebuild them. Changed the gaskets and minor upgrades, but I didn't want to go overboard on the clutch since I have to drive it every day and I'll hold off on a more stout clutch until I start my engine upgrades (which wont be coming until I finish the dozen other projects!) So far, no trouble with the LS7 clutch but its only a few days in. I'll have a better chance to review it once I've put a few miles on it.
