Highest Mileage on OEM Clutch???

Just a curiosity question... what's the highest mileage anyone has on an original OEM MTX-75 clutch?

Back in my contour days, when I was big into contour.org, one of the guys had 175k on the original clutch in his 95 Mystique that had the 2.5 litre duratec v6 and the mtx-75.

For the Contour/Mystique/Mondeo guys, getting over 100k from the factory clutch was not unheard of. As for the focus, don't really know. Considering the extra power that the duratec pumps out, one would think it'd be harder on the clutch, being fairly easily rev'd motors.

Yeah, I'm sure the Ford OEM clutches wear out in no time under the oppressively-high output of a 2.0 Duratec

Clutch life has more to do with the driver's habits than anything. If you baby the car all the time the clutch could potentially outlast the engine.

Yeah, with the lead-foots on this list this might be the wrong place to ask!
I must be pretty easy on clutches, my cars have all died from other causes first. I had a VW with 160K on the clutch when the syncros gave out and I recycled the car, and the clutch was still strong....

83800 here on my clutch. its a factory OEM clutch. and its gone at this point. partially due to the slave cylinder going out....and not engaging and disengaging properly.

so now its time for getrag swap...w00tw00t

I'm sure mine has never been replaced and I'm at ~112k. Since I got it though it's not as crisp as it used to be and I think it's starting to clatter.
