ZF-6 Clutch slips under WOT with tunes... fine in stock mode... Replace or wait ?
I have noticed my clutch slips a bit when I have my chip on any tune other than stock mode. It tows fine in stock and of course with the tunes, but if I WOT it will start to slip, not bad but it will slip, then catch, slip then catch.
I tow a 6x12 trailer with mowers or a landscape trailer with mulch/dirt everyday. With this season coming up, I was considering taking the chip out so I won't be tempted to run it and just get through this season with the stock clutch. I am worried about it going tits up when the season is in full swing and I got to find a place and order the clutch etc....
As far as mods to the truck:
103K Factory clutch
MBRP 4" exhaust, no muffler and MBRP down pipe
Diesel Innovations 6 position chip.
No lift or big tires
The truck runs good and strong, I am all about getting the south bend clutch when the stock goes and ditching the dual mass flywheel. Should I just bite the damn bullet and do this clutch before the season starts up here or limp her along? FWIW, I have felt the slip in the high tunes for probably 4-5 months. It hasn't gotten any worse, but it now slips with the less powerful tunes but I can't get it to slip in stock tune mode.
