Clutch Choice >_<

Good afternoon ladies and gents, I've got a leaky clutch slave cylinder and could use some assistance! I've been searching around and can't seem to find a good solution for a performance aftermarket clutch kit on the cheap. LuK seems to be the only kit with a flywheel and slave cylinder with it at a reasonable price. I seen on Summit Racing they have a SPEC pressure plate and clutch with the flywheels sold separately not as a nice packaged kit and quite expensive once all said and done. I also seen a few on Rock Auto but they all seem OEM not really geared towards a stiffer aggressive clutch. I'm wanting to daily it and autocross the car as NA. Car has a tune, cold air, cat delete, full exhaust, aftermarket headers, beefier ignition wires. Bellow is a list of parts I was told were installed when purchased. I appreciate all the input!

2002 SVT
Fs Werks Header
AEM Intake
RPM aluminium thermostat housing
Fs Werks Catback
Fs Werks Strut Tower Brace
Act stage 2 clutch
Koni 7 way adjustable shocks
Fs Werks springs (Need to change to higher ride height, keep slamming the header into the road X_X)
Focusmods tuner
New IMRC

Sweet I'll look into it. Its some ancient looking tuner the guy gave me with the car, I guess it was an off the shelf tune for the mods that were previously done to the car? I'll take a picture of it tonight. I'll order the plugs and thermostat asap! Thank you!

Aren't those plugs used for a turboed car? I'm going to be running it as NA.

The Luk Clutch kit is good, but the throw out bearing is a lower grade than the version they make for the Ford OEM. Both are LUK, but the one you buy through Ford is a better part (so I have heard)

Edit: Never knew that Koni made a 7 way adjustable shock / strut... The yellows are only a single adjustable shock / strut...

Good to know on the struts I didn't have much luck finding anything on them either, maybe the seller meant 7 levels of adjustment on the 1 adjustment? Still need to dive into this vehicle and check out all the claimed mods. Only thing I've done to it so far was reinstall the stock sub and cargo area carpet and trim. So the right thing to do would be to get the LuK kit but purchase the slave cylinder from Ford right?

I'd go w/ the Luk kit.......Possibly figure out what the difference in the Ford & Luk throw out bearings are.

Steve Powell with TASCA can help provide those details on the throw out bearing.

The adjustment is a continuasly variable valve so there are not even positions. there is full firm to full soft and any adjustment you set inbetween. Easiest way is what color is the strut or shock? Koni is either Yellow or Orange.

From what I can tell there is only an adjustment on the top of the strut. Also the tuner is something else.
