    clutch line upgrade JPC or FRPP?

    will be replacing my clutch next week with a Mcleod RXT in my 07. looking to order a stainless clutch line. question is the ford racing line worth the $215 bucks or could i just go with the JPC upgraded line for $60?

    I'd check with Tousley and see what they could get that FRPP clutch line down to. I have the Joe Heck Racing braided clutch line and I'm happy with it, but I think the FRPP line would make for a cleaner install.

    Went the FRPP route, not sure the major difference in the 2. I think its overpriced regardless.

    The FRPP line is definitely overpriced, and our JHR line kit does the same exact thing and is nearly a 1/4 of the price with free shipping. For $60 shipped, the JHR would be my choice. Another option for you is the McLeod line, it has a bleeder built into the elbow at the master cylinder, it's $112 shipped.

    I used the McLeod line. It is a great product. They just went up to $72.85. Maybe cheaper at a McLeod dealer.

    Important note: Don't waste your money on the bleeder elbow! It doubles the price and you can't get to it to open it enough to work properly. I have one if anyone wants it at 1/2 price.

    Question for you, did your line look like the one pictured on the FRPP website? The reason I ask is, I just picked one up and it doesn't look anything at all like the FRPP picture. The bends are completely different.

    How many miles did you get out of your stock clutch?

    Thanks,

    Thanks! Its very interesting that when I purchased my 2008 a few weeks ago the thing I read most about was the clutch. I read dozens of stories about people having the TSB done because of stock clutch troubles and I checked mine (car has 10k miles on it) for all the signs of trouble before buying it and it had none.

    Now that I have the car I read an equal number of stories where people are getting many miles out of the stock units.

    Please let us know how your RXT goes- I have decided that if my clutch ever gives me trouble I will be changing to it and the heavy flywheel.

    Best of luck!

    Problem is - it doesn't fit. It only comes out of the firewall a couple of inches before bending down and in towards the engine. To clear the brake booster, you need to rotate it down; but, you can't because then the long straight section hits the inner fender/sub chassis.

    I put 53K miles on my stock clutch and that included 4-5 road track events per year. One day, it just went started slipping (had it on the track just a couple of days prior). Put the RXT w/fywheel - very happy with that. It is so light it does not compare to the heavy feel of the original (which I actually liked a lot).

    Then maybe they sent you the wrong one. Did you contact frpp?
