I would not recommend using partsgeek.com. I looked at yelp, and their ratings are terrible...

Wow, dunno what to say about that. A local member order his clutch for his SVT from them and got it. Guess it doesn't matter since the OP is probably going with a aftermarket one anyways.

Ok after investigating they have a ton of bad reviews and the BBB gives them a F rating. That sucks cause they had the cheapest price for the SVT clutch. I'd have to say don't order from them, you may or may not get the right part and in the end would cost as much as buying from Ebay after shipping returns and 15% restocking fee not to mention the length of time that could take cause in all the reviews it says they take forever just to reply to any thing.

I picked my LUK kit up from Gripforce for 430 shipped....not a bad price, I have about 50 miles on the clutch since installed. When I was reading up on most of the aftermarket clutches, not many were living past 40k miles.. Unacceptable

Okay after much (more) research I'm pretty set on the Luk oem kit. But I recently came across this brand called F1 racing and apparantly they are a division of ACT and they have a stage one available. But my only concern is has anyone used this brand before and if so, have they had any luck with it because I've seen success and horror stories out of it....

Probably have a new clutch thanks to uncle sam pretty soon
