Moved to the SVT section


The early models and even later ones had a TSB for the clutch. It was redesigned and is now bigger. I forget the exact measurements but I want to say it went from being 9 1/2" to 9 7/8". It had something to do with it rattling and making noises and some even failed, and if I remember right they even took the trans out with it in some cases. Then there are some that have never had any problems. There was a huge back order for a while and there was even a year when no one could get a clutch for it due to the back order. Any clutch you order for it today should already be the upgraded version.

Basic clutch TSB question

Prospective SVT buyer here.

Was the TSB for the ECU and clutch ONLY for 2002 models? Or did it extend into 2003 models at all? Can someone give me the rundown on the story behind this?

Thanks!!
