    What clutch should I get!

    Looking to replace my clutch this winter on my 99 ws6 m6. I was looking at the ls7 clutch and monster. I just would like to hear some feed back on what you guys think I should get and maybe some links on where to find the best deals on them. Looking for a kit that includes flywheel, pressure plate, pilot bearing, and throw out bearing. Thanks!

    are you stock, have some bolt on mods or full on H/C/I upgrades?


    Stock & mild bolt ons - I recommend the LS7 clutch. It was my last one and was solid and a good deal. I will recommend that if you do go with the LS7 clutch and you have plans on doing the Tick MC do both at same time. The LS7 is a self adjusting and once it's broke in and has some use on it for some reason it doesn't like the Tick MC. If you put them on together new no issues. It's only after the Ls7 has some miles on it and then throwing on the Tick MC that there are reports of issues.

    Full on H/C/I mods, you'll want something like Monster that will handle and support the mods.

    Go with LS7 then. It's rated to handle up to 500HP but more important 550 FTLBS TQ. So even with bolt ons it will perform well.

    Just to warn you it will be more stiffer than the LS1/6 clutches so get ready for some exercise...

    Just as information, the rating for the LS7 clutch is for it installed in a Corvette, which is much lighter than our cars. That makes a big difference.

    Regardless, it's a nice set-up that will work well for your needs if you don't track the car much.

    No 'light legs' need apply, 'cause it will make such wimps cry like a baby. If you have real legs, it will be fun exercise and you will like the feel much better than stock.
