Best Clutch/Flywheel package for 3.0/3.2

Looking for the best clutch/flywheel/pressure plate package for my six conversion.

In process of building a 3.0/3.2L moto using a 1978 3.0L long block, 3.2 Mahle P&Cs, Elgin Modified S Cams, Electromotive Ignition, 40mm or 46 mm Carbs, and headers. Should push out about 250+HP.

This is a street car, so I'm looking for a smooth and comfortable clutch/pressure plate package and flywheel to mate the 3.0 to the side shift tranny but can handle the HP.

Tranny has billet intermediate plate, billet side cover, no bearings, etc.

Any recommendations on products or company's?

Kennedy Engeering? Centerforce clutches?

What are my options?

Thanks,

Kennedy can fix you up with what you need/want. Reasonable prices, also.

One thing to note:
If you're using the stock clutch linkage, you don't wanna' get too carried away with a high pressure clutch. I use Kennedy's 215 mm Stage I and would consider their Stage II to be about the max for the stock linkage (WAG).

The Stage I is holding up well to the considerable abuse I give it. Pedal pressure is higher than the 2.0L t-4 clutch, but not objectionably so. I'm putting 210hp (or so) thru it, but with less torque than the 3.2L you're considering. It prolly has 50-60 AX passes on it with no problems.

The firewall tube, pivot wheel and the cable itself (and the little plastic thingy on the end) are all weak points......not to mention the 901's first gear (but that's another thread).

That's the issue my engine/tranny guy is worried about... the clutch linkage. They can be know to get worn out and break with the excessive pressure and heavy use.

I have a feeling that Kennedy should be able to "fix me up".

Regards,

Kennedy will set you up for 750$

I just bought their stageII setup for a customers car (3.2)

I was amazed at how light the pedal was (I actually thought they sent us the wrong setup)

Go 9 inch stage 2 with a stock style spring centered disc.

The solid center disc is a little rough for the average street guy.
