Thinking of upgrading stock clutch?

What clutch kit do you recommend? I have 12k miles on my 05 GTO & am getting ideas on what to upgrade to when it wears out?? ive hears the LS7 clutch / throw out / slave cylinder, flywheel from GM is a good choice but I would like to know what all of you recommend since your opinion to me is what counts with what works & what don't !!! also I will be purchasing a harrop rear diff cover/ mount to strengthen up my rear end.... I also go a set of sscs poly engine mount/ trans mount kit going in over the winter any help would be appreciated

If you do not have power mods and do not plan to add any, then the LS7 is a good choice.

I agree. For sure install a remote bleeder on the slave. It makes bleeding and fluid changes so much easier and better. FWIW I have a Harrop cover and like it but it's not got a lot of bang for the buck. Intended use of the car plays a lot into what you upgrade after the basics like strut tower and front RR bushings, shocks and springs.

That's an engine dyno with longtubes installed and a fast intake just so you know. That is not what you will get on a chassis dyno to the ground. And IMHO there are waaaaay better cams to be had then the one in that kit. The heads are good tho
