I'm asking because I'm thinking about getting one for my car when I'm doing a turbo swap, someone on the forums already recomended it but I want to know what some other people think, because I don't want to have to replace a clutch in this car twice. I also noticed on their website that there's a Centerforce I avaliable, and a dual friction version. Is the dual friction version a very streetable clutch? Thanks for the info.

Edited for spelling

Ling has a dual friction with a 350. i think it's very streetable. i will say that if i dump the clutch in fifth gear at too high of an RPM it doesn't really grab hold until i let off of it a bit.. but if i'm fully engaged before i get back on to the gas it holds fine.

and it was a huge improvement over a completely new stock clutch. it never could hold the torque. even if i was completely in gear and just mashed the gas to the floor it would slip.

I have the Centerforce Dual friction clutch in my car with a 2.8 to 3.4 engine conversion from ARI. The clutch is very streetable but must be broken in properly before heavy use. I also would not reccomend heavy use every day on any clutch, unless you want one that slips. Mine doesn't slip so far, but I like to baby it anyway.

I have the dual friction version behind my 350. It was fine when I had ~350 hp, but now with 425HP it's not holding it very well.
The centerforce has soft pedal presure (similar to the stock clutch), but I'll be going to the Spec clutch when this one dies. I understand the Spec is a bit stiff, but holds much better.
For a daily driver under 350 HP I would still use the Centerforce for it's smooth engagement and light pedal however.
