What will the stock clutch hold up to?

I was thinking bout chipping my truck and maybe getting stage 1`s. Will my stock clutch hold up to it?? I won`t be racing sled pulling or anything like that, just pulling trailers. I was also thinkng bout getting the d66 turbo will it hold up to that also? Thanks in advance for answers.

Re: What will the stock clutch hold up to?

I think it depends on how many miles are on it. My buddy has about 500 miles on his stage 2's in his 96 and the clutch isn't slipping at all. Its the stock clutch also. The throw out bearing is going bad but that was a problem even before the injectors. Just to give an idea of how well his truck runs, he can break the tires loose in 4th on the concrete road through town with his dp tuner on 120r! Im sure the clutch doesn't have much life left in it though.

Re: What will the stock clutch hold up to?

the big problem is the dual mass flywheel..throwout bearing and pilot bearing

Re: What will the stock clutch hold up to?

Maybe i won`t do a stage 1`s then. I bought a parts truck with new clutch that i am going to put in my truck(supposedly around 10,000 miles). Maybe i will just chip it and recondition my injectors. What about the AD`s or would that be pretty much the same as stage 1`s? Like i said i won`t be doing burn outs boost launches o sled pulling, just hauling trailers so i need it to be reliable. Thanks for the replies.

Re: What will the stock clutch hold up to?

have you looked into diy injectors and i think ads are 20ccs smaller than stage 1s but you can get a good clutch that will hold stage 1s fairly cheap
