    New clutch

    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?

    your not running 393 to the rear with just an exhaust with no long tubes, you miswell just be stock except for the chip which from everybody's opinion wont do much for you. You would need atleast a head cam and full exhaust for that kind of power depending on your cam and head setup. I am actually going to be going with the spec stage 3+ clutch from monster. I will be putting trickflow 215cc heads with a tourquer v2 cam the specs for the cam are is 232/234 at 0.050" with .595/.598 lift lsa 112. I am doing the texas speed x pipe with their tsp headers 1 7/8 with magnaflow cats and dynomax billits, subframe connectors billet shocks and eibach springs, and last but not least the fast92 with a nick wilson 92mm tb. I am sure I am leaving some minor stuff out like the rear end, oil pump, timing chain, rods.

    Here's what I did and my car is mostly stock and a daily driver-

    LS7 Clutch/Flywheel
    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.
