Luk Clutches?

There's a shop about a 45 minute drive from me called Carolina Clutch and Performance. (Carolina Clutch and Performance, Inc.: Performance Clutches &amp Flywheels) They offer two clutch options for the ZF6, and though I don't know the power ratings of them (I'd certainly call ahead of time to make sure it'll hold the power), I could buy a clutch kit, clutch fork, and have it installed for around a thousand bucks.

Has anyone used Luk Clutches? I know everyone swears by South Bend, and in the end, it's likely what I'll go with, but I'm just looking for opinions. It'll cost me near 1400 bucks for the 1944-6OFEK kit, and to have it installed.

i have a Luk gold in my bronco, cummins and diesel ZF5, and I really like it. clutch effort went up from my old south bend ceramic but it is much smoother and a lot quieter.

That's what I have in my CTS V. They make the LS7 clutch for the Corvette. I'm running a modified LS7 that I got from East Coast Performance Corvette out of South Carolina. Good quality clutch.
