Southbend is going in!!

Hey guys the clutch is just about gone so I'm getting a southbend single disk and was wondering how they drive compared to stock. Haven't heard much, 6.4s with a stick are a rare breed!

Yeah i agree. It may be fine but everyone i know of who did a clutch ended up going to a double disc. I have one I'm about to put in myself

Cant beat a southbend. Ran a dd3250 in my last goat, it will take a beating.

I would say it depends on how much HP you are planning to make. I am pretty sure if you don't beat the h#ll and don't plan to go higher than a CAI, tuner, exhaust, a SD should be fine. Most of time a SD will shift quicker than a DD. I have one of the first 3850s made for the 6.4. It has been bulletproof, but its shifting is very slow/tough. According to Craig (from MPD) who had driven a truck with the new 3850 and another one with the old 3850, there is a night and day difference. If you aren't planning to go above 700 RWHP and want the security of a DD, according to one person that has it installed, the 3250 DD shifts pretty good

I'd suggest looking at the 3250 dual disc right from the start. You'd avoid paying for install twice and your used single will be pretty much worthless.

Ask about the dual disc dual friction clutch if you call Southbend.
Shifting should be better than previous dual disc models and pedal pressure will be same as stock.

Finally got the new clutch in and got it broken in. Wow the 275 moves a little bit better then the 210 but the clutch is great and is holding good now all I have to worry about is the tires.......
