Monster Clutch

Right now I have a stage 2 spec racing clutch and im getting ready to replace it with a monster level 2. I was probably gonna go with the C6 Premium Billet Package which includes the HD pressure plate, 12" dual friction disc, steel flywheel, pilot bearing and the alignment tool. Is there anything else i should replace or need? Thanx in advance

personally i would go with a higher strength clutch because stage two is pretty low ecspecially if you are gonna keep up grading that car. monster has really cheaply priced clutches so go with a better one. a stage five monster is only two hundred more and can handle over 825hp.. thats what im gonna get, no sense in havin to get a better one later. and you may want to try going to a remote bleeder for your clutch and steel clutch lines.. also i would get and alluminum flywheel you gain like 8hp because of the weight savings. i just had a thought i wonder if it affects your torque negatively?

thats an awesome point Bluegoat05....its definitely worth the 200 more bucks to upgrade to a much higher and stronger clutch...and yes i am planning on upgrading even more so getting the higher one would be much more logical ....and im not to sure on the negative affects on the torque, but thats a good question....keep me posted also when you get yours and when its done...i wana hear how it feels

Don't forget to get a f-body slave cylinder. Way cheaper.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

I replaced my spec stage 3+ with a monster level 4. Call the people at monster and tell them what kind of driving you are doing and they will recommend the right clutch level.

I would def do the slave and consider installing a remote bleeder. Also look into som SS lines while there. I plan on doing all this when my stocker fails.

I'd save the money and get a F-Body slave and transfer brackets.
