2005-09 Mustang Clutch Kits - Stage 2 - High Performance
If you are regularly running drag radials on your Mustang, regardless of power level, a Stage 2 clutch is for you. It offers up to a 500 rear wheel horsepower handling capability without breaking your leg with a hard pedal. Some chatter may be evident in street driving. Each Stage Two Mustang Clutch Kit includes a higher clamp load pressure plate, performance friction disc (either organic/metallic or full cerametallic facing), and an alignment tool. The use of a billet flywheel is required with these clutch kits. An upgraded hydraulic release bearing is recommended. Use of full drag slicks with this clutch will void the warranty!
So, your Mustang sees regular drag strip duty wearing a pair of full on drag slicks. Or, you simply have thrown the book at your engine and are now making up to 600 rear wheel horse power. Maybe it's a combination of the two. The Stage 3 clutch is the benchmark all other single disc clutches are measured by. The clutch disc is lined on both sides with a sintered iron friction material that offers a high coefficient of friction while still allowing for some slip for the clutch to engage smoothly. Chatter will be evident in street driving. Each Stage Three Mustang Clutch Kit includes a higher clamp load pressure plate, metallic puck friction disc, and an alignment tool. The use of a billet flywheel is required with these clutch kits. An upgraded hydraulic release bearing is required.
For those that want to have their cake & eat it too, the Dual Disc Mustang Clutch may be the answer. They provide the ultimate in power handling while leaving a great pedal feel intact, only slightly heavier than stock. Most Mustang Dual Disc Kits include a Billet Aluminum Flywheel, but do not include a release bearing or alignment tool. These clutch kits are compatible with your stock hydraulic release bearing.
