I'm doing a (350) v-8 swap and I'm wondering if the Centerforce dual friction clutch is the best way to go? I found it on the net for $252 (american). Is that a good deal, are there any other options to look at? Also, what kind of starter should I use because I know the stock one won't fit?
Thanks

i have the centerforce DF that they sell for Archie's kit and it will slip in 2 from a dead stop if i dump the clutch. if i ever replace it or have the tranny off for repair i will put in something that grabs a little harder.

I installed a Centerforce DF installed with my 3.4L SC. I was disappointed. It's fine for normal driving, but I found it would slip when dumping the clutch from even as low as 3000rpm. I have the cradle out and will be installing a Spec Stage 2 clutch (good to 340 ft/lbs torque)next week.

I'm with $Rich$

got a spec stage 3 and that thing grabs like crazy. They have ratings on all their clutches.. I've heard nothing but good things from them on mustang forums etc.

I have the non archie centerforce dual friction on a mild 350 and It will slip if I try.
The spec could be a better clutch.
When the centerforce dies I will look into the spec clutches too.
What is the pedal pressure like with the spec clutch. My centerforce feels lighter than the stocker on my old 2.5.
