Default 99 cobra clutch

So my clutch is toast, I had a 99 GT I did a clutch in so I know how to do it, is it the same?

Also I kno the flywheel is larger on my cobra, so when I go to buy a clutch how do I know? Some sites say the clutch is for a GT and a cobra, what if I get a gt clutch would it work? Or would it be to small? Its kind of confusing?

You want to get an 11", 8-bolt clutch kit. The '03-'04 Cobra's stock clutch works very well in the '99's and '01's.

Yup! Remove driveshaft, transmission, starter, bellhousing, pressure plate, clutch disc, and flywheel. Your midpipe might be in the way on getting to some bolts on the bellhousing. I couldn't get my manly hands to maneuver in a tight spot, so I removed my midpipe.

Good luck.

You might wanna replace your throw out bearing and pilot bearing while your at it.
