Comments about CARQUEST Clutch New Clutch Set:

Good clutch to use in a pinch. Didn't have the coin for a new Centerforce dual friction unit for the drag car. This one will get the car back on the track for the last event of the year. Decent pedal feel, not terribly stuff.

    Comments about CARQUEST Clutch New Clutch Set:

    Installed with new cast iron flywheel in a nearly stock 1989 5.0 Mustang. Very smooth engagement from rest and excellent release for smooth gear changes. The disk hub looks beefier than the King Cobra disk it replaced. Pedal effort was slightly higher than my KC clutch but definitely within the pedal effort of the stock factory clutch. This was used in conjunction with a metal clutch quadrant, new cable and firewall adjuster. For the price, it must be made overseas but the quality is there.

      Bought one of these several years ago for a different Mustang.after 15,000+ miles and 50+ drag passes (on street tires) the clutch was still holding its own,though i wouldnt recommend it for true slicks and/or high hp cars eg..350+ wheel hp

      • Q:

        I'm looking for an affordable clutch kit for my 87 ford mustang LX 5.0 that I sometimes drag race.Would this clutch hold up to that sort of punishment and would it be suitable if and when I add more horsepower.Right now I'm guessing it puts out somewhere around 275-300 RWHP.Just don't want to take the time to put this clutch in and end up having to re-do the whole job in a year or 2 when I put more HP to it.Thanks for your time,George Fraser

          A:

          No, I would not recommend the Perfection Clutch New Clutch Set (Part No. MU48-1) for any racing applications. Instead please check the Zoom Stage 3 Clutch Set (Part No. F3-48) or the Zoom Clutch Set - Performance (Part No. F3-48S) which can withstand extreme tests and suitable for drag race applications as well. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
