This is the same setup that almost EVERY car manf does but ford... might not need another tob for the life of your car :P You can probably get this kit and buy a firewall adjuster and solid quad and do your clutch few years from now if you wanted.
Do you have to get the adjuster and quad? I'm not trying to buy more than I have to.

not noticeable when driving. the spring is not that strong, just strong enough to rid the wobble and freeply and keep tob off fingers.

yeah, main reason is because the stock quad is deisgned to have tob slightly ride fingers. If you move fork back, the quad will just auto adjust over time. need to get fwa and solid quad, solid quad gets rid of the ratchet/spring adjuster thingy, and fwa to let you set where you want your clutch to enguage. Can't get a solid quad w/o a fwa, they work togeather, they make up what your factory quad does alone.

I have same car as you. Full bolt ons and nitrous. I have a centerforce dual friction and I love it. Get fords tob. They are the best. I also put in an aluminum flywheel and it makes the car take off way smoother. I couldn't believe how much better it jumped off the line. And if your gonna try this yourself there is a play by play with pics at modded mustangs. It's the best write up I have ever seen. You are gonna need swivel fittings and get the car as high as you can. That's very important. If it isn't high enough the swivels won't quite work with the angles and extensions. Put a new pilot bearing too. Good luck

Where in the hell did you find a new flywheel for 65 bucks? If that's the case then yes I would buy new so long as it's a Ford piece or better. But I've always resurfaced and never had a problem.
you gotta put the magnet right behind the TOB release arm, space it so its about 1mm away from the arm at full release (pull the arm back as far back as possible, with the cable disengaged of course). that way there's a bit of slack. you need something to use as a spacer, and maybe a screw if thats how you plan on attaching it. you can drill through the area where the inspection cover attaches to. i guess you could just JB weld it in place too...

edit: btw, the best thing about the magnet, is that it only "works" when the clutch is fully released. so it doesnt affect pedal effort at all.

found the flywheel on ebay. brand new 8-bolt

Anyone had experience with zoom clutches? I can probably get a good discount on one at NAPA. Good clutch or should I stay away?

what sort of application? if DDing i'm sure they're fine... other than that they're probably just OEM spec. and are we talking a whole new kit, or just the clutch disc? i guarantee you that the throw out bearing if they include one is crap. then again i havent seen nor used one.

at that point though, i'd rather just grab an "F1 Racing" clutch off ebay, probably cheaper. found alot of honda guys run them (the stage 1) without problem - as its basically just a stock clutch repainted/rebranded

Oh I'm replacing with all Ford Racing bearings regardless if one is included or not. But I was wondering how good the clutch was. That seems to answer my question though, I want something with a little more than stock holding capacity.

Is it true that you need a clutch adjuster with a spec clutch or it will burn up because it cannot adjust correctly? If so is the Centerforce the same way? I want a clutch that will last almost as long as the factory one, but I don't want to buy a bunch of stuff I don't need.

Call spec, you will get opinionated answers. Get correct answer from a mfg.
