i got it changed at 5 star ford. I know they changed it cause the truck slipped even in 1st when i test drove it. and they work on my fleet cars there so i got to pretty much check in every few hours and watch the tech change it out.

soooo..... is it possible they didnt change the fly wheel? maybe its scored? thanks for the input keep it comin.

by the way. reguardless its gonna need a stronger clutch.

should the stock clutch hold up? or should i just upgrade it?

Not sure, just make sure you get one that is rated for more HP than what you plan to make, that way if you get close to your ideal HP and add a new mod and go over that you will still be good on your clutch.
