Description
Ideal Replacement. If you drive your Mustang GT like it's meant to be driven, it's easy to burn out your weak stock clutch. If you're starting to feel your Mustang's clutch slipping or are getting that unmistakable burning clutch smell, an Exedy Mach 500 Stage 3 clutch is an affordable, upgraded OE style replacement that will fit your budget and your driving style.

Street or Strip. The Exedy Mach 500 Stage 3 clutch is a performance oriented clutch upgrade, offering higher clamp loads without sacrificing driveability. It's perfect for the Mustang that stretches its legs on the street, strip, and track, since it offers smooth engagement with a firm, not rigid, pedal feel.

Premium Quality. The Exedy Mach 500 Stage 3 clutch is designed to offer the durability and performance of a racing clutch with the driveability of a stock piece. To make the Mach 500 kit, Exedy combines an organic compound disc and a powerful, high clamp load pressure plate for crisp yet smooth engagement and great wear. All of Exedy's discs feature spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock.

Application. This Exedy Mach 500 Clutch is designed for 2011 to 2014 Mustangs with a MT-82 manual 23-spline transmission.

Specifications:
  • Disc Dimensions: 280mm outer diameter
  • 23 Spline
  • Torque Rating @ Flywheel: 734 ft-lbs
  • Torque Rating @ Rear Wheels: 587 ft-lbs
  • Includes Alignment Tool and Pilot Bearing


Technical Note. The concentric slave cylinder is not included.

It's recommended that you add an SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line during your new clutch install. Stock plastic clutch lines can fail during aggressive driving. Stainless steel clutch lines help prevent gear lockout and provide superior clutch pedal feel, even under the toughest conditions.

Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m going to be breaking down 4 different clutches, all from Exedy, they’re stages 1 through 4, for the 2005-2012 Mustang GT. Exedy is one of the leading manufacturers of both OE and aftermarket clutches, all of their products have been designed and built from the ground up, unlike other companies, who basically take a factory clutch, beef up some of the components, and rebrand it as a performance clutch. So I have 4 different clutches ranging from the Mach 350 which is basically their OE replacement or a light bolt on clutch, all the way down to the big boy, the Mach 600, which is rated almost 800 ft/lbs torque at the frame. In a second we’re going to take a closer look at what makes each clutch a little different but first, I’d just like to point out something that I noticed with every single clutch. As you can see, every clutch utilizes a sprung hub design, even the big boy here, the Mach 600. That’s awesome, because if you’ve ever driven an unsprung 4 or 6 clutch, you’ll know they’re not fun to drive, especially if your car sees any street duty whatsoever. Not only that, an unsprung clutch can be a little harsher on your drivetrain as well. With that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at each one of these clutches. First up is Exedy’s Mach 350 or basically their stage 1 clutch. This is a perfect OE replacement or for a car which has light bolt ons. The pedal feel is going to be slightly firmer than stock, and the clutch disc itself is made from an organic compound which will hold roughly 430 ft/lbs of torque at the crank, which is good enough to handle most bolt ons and then some. Next up is the Mach 400 or Exedy stage 2 clutch. This clutch utilizes that same organic compound but with slightly more bite, this time holding 510 ft/lbs of torque at the crank. This is still a very suitable clutch that can easily handle full bolt ons, and maybe even a small shot of nitrous, yet still maintain that stock pedal feel, with a slightly firmer engagement. Third in the line up is Exedy’s Mach 500 or their stage 3 offering. This clutch utilizes the same disc found in their stage 2 but with a high clamp load pressure plate, giving it the ability to hold 600+ ft/lbs of torque. Since this clutch still utilizes that organic disc material, you’ll still be able to slip the clutch a little bit and it’s still going to offer that smooth engagement, but it’s not going to wear out your leg and it’s still going to hold a ton of power. Finally we have the big boy, the Exedy Mach 600 which is their stage 4 offering. This clutch, as you might have guessed, is ready to handle just about anything you can throw at it, and is rated at almost 800 ft/lbs of torque at the crank. Since this disc utilizes a ceramic material and not that organic compound, the engagement is going to be very quick, yet still maintain the pedal feel from that stage 3. It’s going to be slightly trickier on the street, but I wouldn’t hesitate to throw it in any street car, especially when compared to those unsprung 4 or 6 options. Installing any clutch is definitely not a job for first time wrenchers out there, it should take you about 4 hours from start to finish depending on your lift situation. All of these clutches from Exedy require a very strict break in period of about 500 miles of city type driving before you really start beating on the car. That means no hard launches, no aggressive driving, and if at all possible, try to shift below 4000 RPM. Doing all this is only going to prolong the life of your clutch. So that wraps it up with these Exedy clutches, as you can see it basically boils down to how much power you’re making, and what clutch would be best suited for your ride, and as always you can check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Does this kit include dowel pins? Saw other Mach 500 kits coming with 3 dowel pins. Not sure if this has them? Maybe it just wasn't specified? Any reply would be appreciated!

Does this reduce the travel distance the pedal requires to engage/disengage I HATE how long the throw is with the stock clutch pedal. In addition to the better overall performance, will this reduce the travel distance of the clutch pedal? Thanks!

ktmxracer

  • I think that it will help with the long throw vs the stock clutch(especially if the stock has some wear in it.) It will be much better than stock(after the break-in), and I think you'll like the difference! (I've driven cars with junk-o clutches and long throws, it's live doing aerobics and driving at the same time!) I wish those owners had your sense to up-grade. Have a good cruise!

    Smooth engagement, excellent HEAVY pedal pressure especially when compared to the twin disc I had. Put this in along with my Stage 1 MT82 to hopefully prolong the life of the trans. Installed with OEM Ford Slave, GT500 Master Cylinder, Amsoil Fluids, and left my Mcleod Alum flywheel.

    The big grip.

    Well made with 9 bolt and 3 dowel attaching. I augmented the clutch kit with a Mcloud SS line and 600 degree fluid. In addition a MGW race spec shifter is being installed and fresh fluid. This clutch package is decent for the street and is capable of close to 600 rwtq which allows for mods and street use. AM manages to get me all my stuff overnight.

    This is the clutch the 2011-2012 Mustang should have come with

    I had my dealership install this clutch in my 2011 Mustang GT. I picked the kit because it comes with the replacement slave cylinder and throw out bearing. I loved feel of this clutch from the first time I pressed the pedal. The feel is noticeably stiffer than stock. Break in took about 3 weeks. It has never chattered. I have 6k on mine and have had no problems at all. My nephew has a 12 GT and his stock clutch feels ridiculously squishy compared to the Exedy The clutch is muuuch more grippy on speed shifts and you really can tell how much the stock clutches skip by comparison.

    Love it

    It bites like a stock clutch but holds way more power. I spun my stock clutch with my supercharged 5.0 and this new exedy has been holding up great. I have over 1000 miles on it and it seriously feels like stock except the slightly more pedal pressure. Highly recommend this kit for any street/track supercharged 5.0s.

    Must Have Upgrade

    This is a must have upgrade for any 5.0L mustang with mods. Install took about 6 hours taking my time with a friend at his garage. Everything fit well. The stock clutch once removed had major evidence of slipping. At 7,500 miles i was shocked. My car dyno at 497 RWHP and 453 RWTQ, stock clutch is a no go. The new clutch was matched to the Exedy Billet Steel Fly Wheel. On the test drive after the install with no break in, clutch engagement was smoother than stock, pedal movement very similar, and pedal slightly stiffer than stock. I would not mind driving this as a daily driver or in traffic. Starts are not abrupt at all, very smooth. I have put full Ceramic clutches in cars before and can tell you there is a big difference in every day drivability. I feel this clutch is just right. The only negative I have is you do lose a little bit of feel in the pedal compared to stock, just takes some getting used to. After about 1,000 miles on this clutch I can't believe I did not swap clutches sooner. Shifts are MUCH easier and quicker. The stock always seemed to make for hard shifting under hard acceleration. Car revs nicely and smoother than stock even with the lighter flywheel, idling is fine also. At the track I picked up an average of 3 tenths in my quarter mile times and major gains in my 60ft. I would highly recommend this clutch to anybody who owns a 5.0L and drives their car like it was meant to be driven. After driving on this clutch, the stock clutch is a joke.

    Awesome clutch

    Oh boy am I glad installed this! This was part of a week long project which included the clutch, findanza aluminum flywheel, long tube headers and a 2.9 whipple. Needless to say it was required and maaaaaan does this clutch just hook up and bite. I recommend doing the flywheel at the same time also. The pedal feel is a little bit stiffer, as long as you aren't a wimp you will love it!

    Excellent Clutch!!!!

    Did a lot of research before purchasing my clutch for my Street/Track Car and this Clutch was Perfect! Smooth petal response in shifting and I like it better than the OEM clutch! If your looking to build your Mustang with additional HP - You need a clutch that can grip and accelerate when you need it! For the Price - you can't beat this Clutch, and with a name like EXEDY - you know your covered in getting the HP to your Wheels without the slipping or burning your clutch plates! This is an Excellent Clutch for any street/track mods. Make sure you purchase a NEW Flywheel when you do this install - the pairing of the flywheel and the clutch are very important! Also - Make sure you break in your new clutch and flywheel in for the first 500 miles - after this - your good to go! Thanks AM for another excellent quality Items!

    In with the new

    I have around 2000 miles on this clutch, the install was simple, the clutch alignment tool was not a perfect fit, but I made do. The clutch is great and grabs when you need it, yet still feels very much like stock. It is very grippy or touchy at first, but it is starting to feel much better. I cannot wait to get it to the track to see how it likes 5k dump on Mickey Thompsons. If you don't have tools or a friend to help you and some know how, take it to a shop. I did it on jack stands.
