Early 99 clutch suggestions

Hey guys. This coming weekend my buddy is going to do the oil pan on my girl friend's early 99. He suggested that seeing how we are going to have the motor out its a good time to upgrade the clutch...which I agree. The truck has an intake, exhaust, and a DP tuner. Down the road I miiiiiiiighhhhttttt get a little crazy and throw injectors in it....nothing huge....I'm looking for suggestions on clutches....I've been told to go val air or south bend....

buying a Sachs is cheaper by about 50% for what appears to me to be the exact same clutch. my obs K70263-01CB was $410 on ebay

My concern is buying something with an overly "stiff" pedal or difficult to drive daily....its not going to be hooked to a sled every weekend or pull twelve cars....

I don't know. I know the dual disc . Clutches are noisier than a single disc clutch. Most dual disc clutches are in trucks that pull sleds or have a ton of power. Id go with a single good clutch vs a dual if it's your dd

not sure why people recommend south bend if its not a dual disc custom job.

my single disc south bend blew up behind a stock motor.





replaced it with a Sachs ceramic for half the cost



the pressure plates look identical to me.
not sure if my linkage is sticking a bit or the ceramic is a bit chattery

My understanding is that DD's have more rotating mass thus requiring more time to sync up, so not the best thing for quick shifting fun street/strip use. There is some good info in this thread:
