thats going to be a pretty crazy bill but i can attest for the CFM Stage 3 Clutch. I put one in my car about a year ago and it still grips like its brand new. It sounds like yours will get off the line real quick with all the stuff you have on that list.

thanks for ur input hubster was hoping someone else has had a good experience with this clutch... yea im hoping the LSD will help with the launching also my wheel spin while cornering.... honestly only reason im doing the rear main seal is because im already gonna have everything off and its going to be accessible... wont jack the bill up too much since the tranny will aready be off... spend a lil more now to hopefully save a lil later.. it may not be a common failure but i seem to run into uncommon problems when i over look stuff

If you are going to beat on the car I would stay away from the spring hub clutches...



That is a SPEC 3+, I installed a stage 3 and it did the same thing... :( I did this with Z rated radials, a Torsen and a 3L. (~200FWHP)
This clutch has bigger rivets and the spring windows are smaller, but it still let loose.

^ Yes, 2.1 qts XT M5QS. Dont need a new speed sensor though. Do need coolant. And new flywheel / pressure plate bolts if you're trying to be all thorough about it. Oh you may need shims for preloading the diff as well
