    The Z06 clutch should do you just fine at that power level. If you plan on going any further get the LS7 clutch.

    I have the z06 clutch and it works pretty good. I slipped it once at the track with slicks that were to big before I did my gearing. Gearing and tire size is crucial to getting your clutch to hold. If you have highway gearing it's gonna be harder for your clutch to hold cause it will have less physical leverage over launching the car. It's good to have at least 3.73's and up if you launch
    on slicks keep the tire size to 26 inches or less or you may reach the limitations of the clutch. Tire weight and vehicle weight also play major factors in clutch performance. The 150 plus pound weight reduction in my car was huge. In addition i am running on several bolt ons and 150 shot on slicks and the z06 clutch is still holding. Estimated power on bottle=500+rwhp

    With all that horsepower why do you want to install a stock clutch?

    What is the ls2 flywheel made of? Iron or steel?

    Question New Flywheel??

    Too bad that I didn't catch your post earlier..........
    I've had my Ram stage IV clutch set sitting in the box for a couple of weeks and I hope to pull the tranny this week. Is changing out the flywheel a must or can I just send my (probably stock) unit to the machine shop??

    450HP+/-

    '99 Camaro SS

    I have been following this thread with great interest as
    I have much the same problem. My '99 SS is in the shop
    right now for heads, cam and LS6 intake. My baseline
    dyno run was 319 rwh and 325 torque and the stock clutch
    is not holding well at that power level. I expect to get
    about 450 hp RWH with the changes that are being made.

    The car is strictly for street. It has a M6, 373 axle ratio and
    stock diameter tires. What I am looking for is a clutch that
    will handle the power, reliably, without increasing the
    clutch peddle pressure very much or better yet, none at all.

    I have been reading about the CenterForce Dual Friction
    Clutch which is advertised to have very little increase
    in peddle pressure. What I wanted to ask is what has been peoples experience with this clutch and how does it compare to the LS6 and/or LS7 clutches? In other words,
    what would be my best choice, given what I am trying to achieve.

    I started this thread and knew nothing about clutches and flywheels etc. when my car stopped on the road. I have learned a lot since then and here is my quick breakdown.

    A: Transmission problems suck
    B: There are a lot of people willing to give you advice(good and bad)
    C: My troubles tend to be common among all of you
    D: Buy exactly what you need to match the power your making
    E: The LS7 clutch kit is the shit!!!!

    Turns out i needed a pilot bearing, throwout bearing, forth gear, syncros, clutch, and flywheel. Got the LS7 clutch kit and flywheel for 400 bucks
    and the rest and the labor for 600 bucks and 100 in gift certificates to a local restaurant(perks of working in advertising)
    All in All I think I got a great deal. Not to mention I never realized that I was missing out on that much power. Thanks for those that offered advice!

    I know it is hard to read, and see what someone is saying. I wasn't trying to argue with him as to the site address, just stating that it is the scoggin dickey site. Sorry
