    well my original clutch just started slipping (not surprising with 76,000 miles) and i want to upgrade to something better than stock. im working with basic bolt-ons right now, as in my sig and future plans include 3.73s, intake, tb and mass air. maybe heads and cam down the road... what would you guys recommend? any thoughts on king cobra, centerforce, spec, i need some input! thanks!

    zoom is low end stuff, its fine for a stock replacement but if you have higher than stock hp you need something better......I like centerforce myself

    well you wont get one for 100 or 150 but they are worth the cost :). Last time I priced them I think the dual friction was around 350 or so :dunno: cant remember for sure, because its been over 2 years since I have checked on them. I will be looking at them soon since my cobra will be needing its first clutch change ( with me as the owner anyway )

    Call ddperformance.com (Don Walsh aka drivetrain specialest who know there chit) $10 says they will recomend the Heavy duty clutch over the King Cobra. It's cheaper and made better from the Wlashes say......
