    I'm having my shop replace the clutch on my '94 5.0 with the mods listed in my sig. As things are right now, he's gonna put in a stock-grade clutch in. I'm not so much worried that the clutch won't be up to the job (my understanding is stock ones are rated at like 365hp), but I'm more-so curious if a stock clutch won't perform as well as it should. My previous clutch was heavy as hell, which leads me to believe it wasn't stock (never asked), and now I'm worried a stock one will feel lacking, or perhaps will wear down faster. Anyone have any input? I have very limited experience with clutches.

    Depending on the brand it should be fine! Me and a buddy put a Valeo or w/e brand from auto zone in his boosted 522rwhp-650rwtq and it lasted a few months until he eventually went Auto..

    the heaviness in the clutch feel could also be a stretched clutch cable
