    I like AFR heads, but they're pricey!

    As far as a clutch goes, everyone here has mixed emotions about what brand. It all depends on what you plan on doing with this car. Strictly street? LS7 is good for bolt-on. However, with any clutch swap I'd say change out the slave cylinder and master cylinder at the same time. Tick makes an adjustable master cylinder which a lot of people like. You have to get the Tick MC installed with the LS7 new though from what I hear/read. Since the LS7 clutch has an adjustable pressure plate, you cannot install the adjustable MC with it after it's worn in.

    Hydraulics on these cars suck. I went with the Spec Stage 3+. I'll be putting down a bit more than you though in the end.

    Doing some research on the clutch now. The maximum torque readings on even the stage 1 from SPEC is high, but then again, I know this is max. I don't expect I'll be pushing more than 500 on torque, with these upgrades being the extent of what I'll do.

    I almost think my stock clutch will work fine with this setup, but I could be wrong. My current clutch has a new master cylinder and clutch spring with 3,000 miles on it. If anything, I'm looking at the LS7/SPEC Stage 2 clutch kits otherwise.

    I found the LS7 clutch kit along with the pilot bearing part # and slave cylinder. The only piece I'm looking for now is the Tick Master Cylinder to go with the install. I can't get the Tick website to load.
