    Any future mods down the road?

    If you plan on staying below 450hp, I would suggest the LS7 clutch. Has a stock like feel and holds quite well. www.kyspeed.com is a sponsor on this site and can get you a good price on that set-up.

    Since you are a 99, I would also suggest upgrading the Master and Slave cylinder to at least the 01 GM model (slave since you'll already have the trans dropped).

    Anything over, if you have the coin, Textralia is one of the best out there. I've also read and seen good results from Monster clutches. My last option would be a Spec clutch based on my own personal experience and many others on here that use Spec. They have a lot of chatter on take-off.

    the LS7 is a very good semi performance clutch. The Tex. is a great all around clutch and have installed several of them with great luck.

    I have had serveral Specs with great luck out of them. I run a spec 3+ in my car and have had good luck with it. The specs seems to be hit or miss sometimes you will get one that chatters or someone forgets the shim in it and really has problems with it.

    Also anytime you do a clutch it is very wise to replace the slave cylinder and upgrade or do the drill mod to the master.

    thanks,
    Mark

    I believe you have to buy the flywheel to make it work correctly.

    Really? I have about the same mods you do and the LS7 clutch, and mine has started sticking to the floor after going WOT. It's also starting to slip a little. Didnt happen until I did the Heads and Cam. I am getting a Spec when I get back from my deployment.
