Suggestions to pair a clutch with a Fidanza Flywheel

My clutch is going on my 03 SVT. I have committed to buying a Fidanza Flywheel and need help choosing a clutch. It's NA right now, But I plan on going FI. Any suggestions?

Yeah South Bend still does it. You will have to ship them your flywheel to be machined for the correct step. I have their stage 3 clutch and had my flywheel machined by them it was around 500 for the clutch and the machining

What is South Bend? Never hear of em'. What about clutch masters? Are they good? I have also read on some forums about "clutch clatter". What is that exactly? And should I be worried about that with an aftermarket clutch?

clutch masters doesnt have a clutch that will work with the fidanza,

you have an aluminum flywheel so you will here the chatter of it when you are not in gear.

heres a link to c-f-m.com they sell south bend clutches and pressure plates

So regardless of the brand flywheel I get, I'm gonna have the clatter sound?

I think I'm going to go with the Stage 3 Clutch from Clutch Masters and pair it with their flywheel. I don't really want to go with the south bend brand only because it is a brand that I have never heard of. With the both of those brands at nearly the same price point, it makes sense to me to go with a brand that I do know.

southbend is a well known brand but its your choice man.

and you will only get chatter if you have an aluminum flywheel

Have you checked out this thread?


SVT owners, what clutch/flywheel combination did you go for and why?

CM Stg4 with Fidanza Flywheel and Torsen LSD = GREAT SETUP.
