Re: Which Clutch?

I am running the Southbend Dual Disc FDD3250C60. I like it a lot better than the single disc.

Re: Which Clutch?

I just got a Southbend DD. I have a friend with one in his dodge and a friend with one in a OBS. You can't go wrong with the performance lof a southbend DD clutch. If you ever do a turbo upgrade or injectors you will need one. That's y I would go with a dd if I were you.

Re: Which Clutch?

Yeah i did some reading on South Bends website, i just need to figure out how much HP im running. I think my race file is 160hp....but they say your clutch needs to be matched as close as possible, but what if you switch to a tow tune that is 100hp less??

Re: Which Clutch?

Yes that is what they told me as well. The smallest dd clutch is 650 rwhp. With a good tuned truck with fuel system you will be at about 450 rwhp+. if you put injectors in it down the road you'll be over the limit on tha big single. I thank it like 500rwhp. But I have had friends slip that clutch pulling and raceing with 400 to 450 rwhp. I wouldent risk it for 1000.00. I know the dd is high. But that's alot of clutch man. If I were you I'd go with the smallest DD they have and you will be fine.
