    Those clutches suck. Grab a RAM HDX, good for 430 ft lbs, not a heavy pedal at all. Some people swear by those King Cobras but they were good in the 90s, better options meow.

    The Valeo will be fine for any n/a application.

    +1 for the Ram, use the high temperature grease for the spline and get a Ford Racing throw out bearing. The ones in clutch kits will squeal after awhile.

    Valeo either was the manufacturer for Ford for the king cobra clutch or one of them. I have one in my car, upgraded to the 11" and it is fine. do get a Ford TOB as suggested.

    I loved my RAM. Switched to a TKO trans so I have a centerforce stage two, dual friction. Miss my RAM so much haha

    Valeo is an original supplier so the quality is just fine. I have one in mine now too. the King Cobra is a good stock clutch & unless you are pulling more torque than the rating it will be a good choice. Do get the Ford Racing Throw out bearing & Pilot bearing as stated above.

    I love the SPEC in my car. Realistically, any good brand of clutch and you will be fine.

    Some mentioned getting the Ford Racing TOB. No. That part is made in China just like all the other aftermarket ones. It is slightly better than them, but still, not as good as the original Motorcraft one.

    So far still in the break in period, but holy shit it grips good and shifts so easy. That with longtubes equals a totally different ride
