I put a kennys pulling clutch in mine, cost 550$ for everything 3600# pressure plate, its a button clutch, holds my 30 pound boost launches no problems yet. I have almost the same mods as you but rosewood stage 2s in mine. They're located here in ky I lot of guys around here run them they're cheap and quality built.

I'm running a Valair. It's the stock HP clutch that has about 50k on it, about 10k of that is since I chipped it. It holds whatever I can throw at it in the top tune (I should be making 350 HP, never had it on a dyno), but doesn't like to get hot in a boosted launch.

if you have it built up you might need the double disk, but they are loud and hard to get in gear. it depends on what you use the truck for but i just swapped out the stock dual mass flywheel setup for the valair in mine. so far its not too bad. make sure to add an extra quart of tranny fluid for a single mass flywheel though if gear chatter will annoy you

Its simple hold the clutch in with the left foot hold the brake and go pedal with the other ease into the go pedal let out on the clutch do a John force Smokey burnout and when you dump the clutch watch the boost gauge, my clutch doesn't mind it yet my tires and stock charger are getting annoyed, and my wheel hop is getting old. Time for caltracs and a s366...

So your slipping the clutch to load the engine to build boost? Id say thats one tough clutch! Thats for the input ! even more excited to get one.

What are you running for injectors ect? I also need to upgrade turbo lol, it doesn't seem to be causing a problem yet, but I know it cants like 40psi

Ok mods: rosewood stage 2 160\100%, bdp efuel and electric return, mbrp 4" turbo back to 7" turnout stack, Ts TW tuned, srp 1.1, tymar intake, air compressor regulator in map line set to 22psi (my truck defuels at 34psi) can't figure that one out..., and I have a bullseye performance double batmowheel s366 waiting for my stock charger to blow. The single cab 5 speed and 3.55 gears make for some fun top end.

Oh, awesome. You have the turbo? how much did that thing cost? I really need to look into a new turbo.


Im surprised your having boost issues, Thats a good idea though, put a regulator in the line to keep the turbo alive??..because its really hard to stay down to earth with the way my truck runs, boost climbs so fast past 35.


I have the same 3.55's 5 speed, with 35" tires. She turns a tad under 1500 @ 55 lol. That works out to a top speed of about 140 lol, havn't had the stones to try it yet, curious if it has enough power to though.
