Well, due to my slave cylinder going out, they had to replace pretty much everything, except for the master cylinder. Majority of the cost ($899) was for the Ford OEM parts (Slave cylinder, throwout bearing, pressure plate, seals, flywheel, bolts, fluid and etc,). The total bill was $1,375.00. The sport clutch would have been $1,700+ and my Wife wouldn't approve. LOL
Jesus! You went all out! Does it feel much better now? Lol it better!

LOL, yep I went all out!
Yeah, she drives and pulls strong, just need to get used to the lighter clutch feel and how low it catches. ;-)
While backing up, I squealed tire at a store parking lot. I felt like an idiot. LOL
