That would be the best set up. I dont know how much pressure our plastic masters can handle. I also read on Tiltons web site, you are gonna need a clutch pedal travel stop, you can over travel this style pressure plate and damage the pressure plate tines...But you can set it up to really hold a lot of power. Good luck with it. It`s a shame to have to cover that work of art up. May be a transparent bell housing ? LOL

I know man...it looks so nice!!

Im getting the bellhousing painted and finished by Terry Haines when he installs the torsen and new gear set, so at least itll look somewhat nice on the outside, even if i can't see the inside lol.

Well it was a killer deal. And that you can adjust the pressure plate diaphram, I thought was a big plus. I wound up going with a Fidanza Flywheel and Comp stage 4 . That should be more than enough for my HP & TQ goals.
