Stages or styles of clutches are a tricky subject. Whether you have an OEM Mustang, bolt-on performance modifications, or a 1000+ horsepower track-only vehicle, this can affect what clutch you may need for your particular application. Our Mustang Clutch Buyers Guide will go into detail breaking down each of the following-STOCK/OE STYLE CLUTCHES - MILD BOLT ON-
These Stock/OE style clutches will be designed for stock or mild bolt-on applications. These style clutches will provide you with an effortless pedal feel and reliable driving characteristics for years to come.
These clutches will be designed for mild street-driven applications. These clutches are typically rated around 300-400 RWHP and are designed for a daily driven vehicle. The pedal effort will be slightly more strenuous than stock but will still have excellent driveability around town. These clutches tend to use an upgraded organic friction material designed to handle higher power loads over the OEM style options.
These clutches will be designed for high horsepower, supercharger-powered, or heavy-duty applications, usually 500 plus RWHP and higher. Due to the nature of these clutches, the pedal effort for the single disc applications will be greater than OE and Mild Street performance clutches. Driveability on the street will be affected, clutch chatter and aggressive take-offs will be expected. These clutch discs can consist of organic material on one side, ceramic on the other, or ceramic on both sides.
There are a few factors when equating how long it takes to install a clutch into a Mustang. Let’s take an OEM 1993 Ford Fox Body Mustang GT vs. a 2013 Shelby GT500 SVT Cobra and the removal of the OEM manual transmission and clutch assembly. The 1993 Ford Mustang GT calls for a labor time of 3.6 hours, and the 2013 Shelby GT500 OEM twin-disc clutch kit calls for 6.6 hours. The model of Mustang you have will be the most significant determining factor in how long this procedure will take.
Aftermarket parts like long tube headers can also be an issue when removing some manual transmissions. Some OEM manual transmissions have an integral bell housing, making removal a bit more cumbersome. Some applications will also require you to slightly drop or remove the entire K-member for removal and installation. Throughout the 1979-present Mustang chassis’, differently designed OEM and aftermarket driveshafts are used. Single or one-piece design driveshafts vs. 2-piece driveshafts can also add to the overall removal and replacement timeframe.
When considering a new clutch replacement, there will be other associated parts that go with the territory. It is always good to either replace or resurface the engine’s flywheel. Clutch engagement can suffer if the flywheel’s friction surface is damaged, worn, or shows excessive heat marks. The pilot bearing is another common part that needs to be serviced when you have this apart. The pilot bearing provides a rotating link between the engine crankshaft and the transmission input shaft. Over time, they become worn out, damaged, and noisy.
A clutch cable on your Mustang will be the mechanical link between the clutch pedal and the clutch fork on your drivetrain. When you exert pressure with your foot via the clutch pedal, the clutch cable will pull the clutch fork, causing the throwout bearing to depress the clutch diaphragm. This is how you can smoothly change gears and put your Mustang into neutral, without grinding or damaging costly internal gears on your manual transmission.
If your clutch cable is worn or stretched, this can cause many different problems. Other parts like firewall adjusters and clutch quadrants can also tie into the clutch cable and how the proper geometry is achieved to release the clutch.
