That clutch should take anything you through at it as long as you are under the rated hp. $-th gear shouldn't be a problem. Assuming you don't have like 54" boggers and 3.55 gears that is.....


just a reminder update your sig :thumbsup

3rd gear launches are NO problem with that clutch.

Just wondering ... Why did you upgrade your hydros with a 96? ... We already have the heavy duty hydros

I thought the bigger DDs required it? And 3600 is recomended. Is stock good enough?

When I ordered my 3600 from Peter ... He told me that my stock hydros in my 96 were exactly the same as the hd hydro kits that he has. From what he told me, the 98.5's and up NEED the hydro kit.

SWEET!! :thumbsup
98.5s cutting it pretty close for me though
Double check with Peter to make sure they didn't change in it 98. Im pretty sure they changed when they switched to the 24 valves ... but double check with him
