need clutch opinions

i need a clutch (see truck in sig) and I really don't know which route to go. I'd like to go with a south bend because i have connections there but i don't have to, so i'm asking you fellas for opinions. i don't tow a lot but i do somtimes and when i do it's usually heavy. i aslo would like to do sled pulling a little. so what do you think?

Re: need clutch opinions

I do not have a SBC in my truck, a buddy of mine does though and loves it. I drove him to their shop to get his clutch done and will say they are very good guys there. He had his clutch rebuilt to higher specs, and I think we were there for a total of 15 minutes . Seeing your location you seem close, I would keep it somewhat local. Just make sure you tell them what you want to do with it, they will take care of ya.

Re: need clutch opinions

I have had good luck with my SBC so far. I think I need to step up to a dual disk here soon. I would give SBC a call and ask them what clutch they offer that would fit you needs the best...

Re: need clutch opinions

I like the Valair I put in. I guess it depends on how much HP you will be making to which one you want.
Give Kevin or Dan a call at Valair they will give you a good deal on one.
