This is what I used on my 93 Fox LX, works beautifully and very strong grab that you can feel.

ok the spec and ram clutchs are great choices imo. I have another question, my car has a Tremic world class t5 gear box. what spline does it have 10.5 or 26. Sorry for the noob questions, i bought my car with the upgrades so i did not do them myself but am interested in learning. Thanks.

That's what I got the spec stage 3+ with their 6 bolt flywheel and it's doing the job flawlessly, you can pick the clutch and flywheel on AM for 700.

So how about a new Ram 10 spline clutch and get my fly wheel skimmed by a machinist? trying to keep this under a budget. Would this work well? thanks.
