So i found a truck the same as mine except is a 5 speed which i want. So my question is if i swap everything from my truck to the 5 speed what clutch will i have to run to hold it. Also what DV's does the 215 pump have? Will the 191's be worth the swap. And last there will be only a little HP pick up cause i will be going form a 180 pump to a 215 pump right?? :yourock::yourock::yourock:

look at valair clutches they hold well to high hp and torque and they are street drivable and reasonably priced.

WOULD REALLY BE EASIER TO TO SWITCH TRANNYS YOU HAVE TO DROP IT OUT TO PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT ANYWAYS!!!!

ok but i have to cut a hole for the shifter and run all the lines for the clutch and hang the pedals and replace the steering column and get new driveshafts since the NV4500 and the 47RE and different lengths. Plus i get a 215 pump instead of a 180 pump. There are more positives the negs.

Yeah the 3250 would work still. You would need the sfi flywheel though. I've run 3850, and 3600 sprung hub 12 cb from south bend. I have a 3250 pressure plate in the garage but I've been too lazy to try it. the 3600 is much better for a dd than 3850 was. You should call peter and ask but he told me not to sled pull the ductile flywheel so I stuck with the other. I have no experience with valair but talking to them on the phone, so I won't say not get one. I might try one from them next time.
