    Oh, no! Not another clutch thread. Actually, I think I've done all the research and I just need verification that I have everything that I need.

    My old Spec Stage2 clutch with the low pedal effort only lasted for 10K miles with me only having a pullied car. And I'm a mile high so HP is down even further. To say I was ticked off when I thought I was buying something to last me another 80K miles compared to the stock clutch.

    Also got my tranny rebuilt at the 80K mark and that was a 3 month long nightmare. Next time, I'm just going to put a Magnum in it and as such I want my setup to be compatible with it so I need to go to a 26 spline clutch.

    My parts that I plan to order:
    26 Spline Input Shaft: $299.00
    Mustang T56 26 Spline Input Shaft Swap (03-04) - LMR

    Tremec Shim Kit: $20
    Tremec Shim Kit for 26 Spline Input Shaft

    McLeod RXT Organic Twin Disc 1000HP Clutch Kit - 26 Spline: $936.00
    McLeod Mustang RXT Twin Disc 1000HP Clutch - 26 Spline 6932-07 (Late 01-10 GT; 99-04 Cobra; 03-04 Mach 1)

    Spec Flywheel Replacement Friction Plate - 8 Bolt: $94.99
    Spec Mustang Flywheel Replacement Friction Plate - 8 Bolt SF84FPK (99-Mid 01 GT; 96-04 Cobra; 03-04 Mach 1)

    Ford Performance Performance Throwout Bearing: $54.99
    Ford Performance Mustang Performance Throwout Bearing M-7548-A (79-04 V8)

    Amsoil Torque-Drive Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid: $45.45
    Torque-DriveĀ® Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid

    Am I forgetting anything. Is there anything I should change in this list?

    What about just having the flywheel surfaced? Or is it a time thing?

    Just my opinion, but I'd look around at other vendors for the parts.

    Just wondering who recommended the Amsoil Torque Drive ATF? Not sayijng it's wrong just never seen someone use it in a T56. Amsoil's site recommends the "Synthetic Multi-Vehicle ATF for our cars and is what I see most people using, myself included.

    Since the tranny will be coming out, and I have that Spec flywheel, and made it easy to just replace the friction plate thought it would be best just to replace it. I'll look at different vendors. It was just easier to use their site this time. Normally I ordered from Lethal. I have a recommendation to call Dederichs Motorsport so I'll be doing that.


    That was the funny thing. I looked at Amsoil's site and I saw the same thing you did. Though searching, the number one fluid that came up for the T-56 was the Torque-Drive. Found it recommended here, the Corvette, LS1, and other forums. Otherwise I was going to go with the Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF. If there is a new consensus to use a different fluid, I'm all for it.
