    clutch questions...

    hey im pretty new to f bodys... i got an 00 WS6.
    im looking at clutches... tell me whats good to get and not exspensive.. heres my info..
    im only planning on doing 4.10 gears, exhaust but no headers, lid and tune basicly just that. and occasional track. mabye 4 times a year mabye? with prolly about 5 runs or so... i was looking at spec 3 clutches but im not planning on making alot of power. i dont want to put a styock unit in either.. i would liek a little harder pedal also but doesnt have to.. let me know whats good.. whats the best bang for the buck... thanks!

    yea i heard the spec2s have been known to give out before the "rated" amount...um try the z06 clutch..might be a lil cheaper but z06 or spec3 is the only way too go.

    check out our sponsors ..like summit racing and ws6store. um you need to upgrade the hydraulics. i'm pretty sure gmparts direct will have them, its the 2001-2002 hydraulic system hope this helped

    i'm deff no m6 expert..but your slave and master would be replaced, the 01-02 fixed problems with pressure i believe, but i know that everyone swamps it becuase it helps save your tranny/clutch.
