Clutch & exhaust for Hauling truck : advice wanted

What clutch to use for hauling with CNG fumigaiton?

I finally bought another 7.3, after my 99.5 was totaled in august.
it's an '02 250 4WD Crew and long bed with 127 km.
I'll be taking a 14,000 lb load of horses 3000 miles at the end of the month.
the exhaust manifolds are leaking. I've already ordered a 4" MBRP t409 exhaust. I will also be installing a Technocarb Compressed natural gas kit.(have a well and compressor, much cheaper than diesel)
I'm currently thinking of buying the Dorman Manifolds from Advance and the stock bolts from ford and stock up pipes and gaskets from ford.
I plan on pulling the trans to access the manifolds.
It makes sense to me to replace the clutch at this point.
should I go with the ford kit at $550 or
the advance auto Perfection kit $350
Or should I be upgrading in some way to handle the extra power (35-40HP?)

i would go with a valair organic.... there around the same price if i remember and there able to handle 350rwhp... i had one in my 12v and it was butter smooth and never slipped even when towing heavy and that truck was built pretty good.

Re: Clutch & exhaust for Hauling truck : advice wanted

I have heard good things about valair and southbend.
much better then oem they both have different version depending on tq and hp range prob 3-900 including pressure plate alignment too etc.

though the 900 version is more for the 500plus crowd.

i would ask a few vendors like cary, dennis , bean etc..
all can get you a good clutch in the range your looking at i am sure.

I have a south bend dual friction plate (400hp) and would recommend it over the stock. I pull a 5th wheel and boat up and over the continental divide.

I just put a southbend CON-OFE in my truck, single disk rated to 450 hp stated to be "moderate" engagement as in not as smooth as stock but not harsh like a racing/ pulling clutch $923 including a new flywheel

The CON-O rated for 350 hp would be more than enough for you and would be very smooth and about $200 cheaper

Re: Clutch & exhaust for Hauling truck : advice wanted

How much power is your CNG fumigation supposed to add?

With that in mind, I would spec a clutch with a minimum spec of at least 50+rwhp over what you plan to run the truck at. Extra clutch capacity is going to extend it's lifespan.

Re: Clutch & exhaust for Hauling truck : advice wanted

unless you find it nessecary for another reason the up pipes can be changes relatively easy from underneath the truck use pb blaster on those dang bolts every day for a week before you pull them theill come out nice and easy
also i would recommend getting soe bellowed up pipes and scrap the oem ones i got mine from ih and love them been leak free aswell as many others
also with weight like that take a minute or two and check your brakes well how well you go is nowhere as important as how well you stop

hope this helps good luck
