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.

Ideal Replacement. If you drive your Mustang 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 unmistakeable burning clutch smell, an Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch is an affordable, upgraded OE style replacement that will fit your budget and your driving style.

Great for Daily Drivers. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch combines an organic compound disc with a high clamp pressure plate that delivers superior durability with stock-like driveability. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch is the perfect clutch for the street-driven, mildly modded, daily driven Mustang. Exedy's Stage 2 clutch firms up your pedal for a sporty feel without the on-off characteristics of a true race clutch and is good to 510 ft-lbs of torque at the flywheel.

Premium Quality. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch is designed to offer the durability of an upgraded performance clutch with the main focus on keeping the great street driveability of a stock unit. All of Exedy's discs feature spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock.

Application. This Exedy Mach 400 Clutch is designed for the Late 2001-2004 GT, 1999-2004 Cobra, 2001 Bullitt, and 2003-2004 Mach 1 with the T-45, TR-3650, or T-56 transmission with a 10 spline input shaft.

Flywheel Do I "need" to replace the flywheel and if I do, do I need a 6bolt or and 8bolt. The only reason im replacing clutch is my throw out bearing is going out and I might as well upgrade while im in there. Thanks 03 gt.

If i change my original clutch is this clutch the perfect replacement for my almost stock 04 GT? I really like my OEM clutch right now but i must change my throwout clutch bearing so while im changing the bearing why not i change the clutch also, i only have pypes O/R x-pipe, pypes violator cat-back and BBK CAI right now and planning to add a throttle body + plenum later!

chrisimator

  • Ah yes, the notorious Mustang throwout bearing. I too changed out the entire clutch assembly when mine went bad. (It just makes sense to do the whole thing.) I chose this clutch kit and paired it with the lightweight racing flywheel and can testify that it does great on my 2003 Mach 1. You'd do well to choose this clutch kit as well. However, if you ever plan to make more hp/tq than this kit is rated for, you should keep that in mind before making a choice.

Can I rev the engine freely during the break in period with the clutch disengaged? Does that still do damage to the clutch or it's components?

TonezM

  • As long as you let the RPM come down before you let the clutch engage you should be ok. However, I would refrain from any sort of high RPM anything during the break in period. There is no reason to be gunning the motor except to show off and is your brand new clutch worth sitting at a stoplight revving to 6k?

    Great so far!

    Been using the mach400 stage 2 clutch and I love it. As far as the "pedal feel" well I was surprised... It feels lighter than my stock setup! Yeah it's a good clutch. It's quiet smooth and good for daily driving. Be sure to replace your bearings. I used the ford racing throw out bearing to insure myself. Anyway you won't regret this clutch. If I remember right it is capable of 500 or so lbs torque and thats more than enough to ever worry about. Anyway break it in and kick the clutch a few times you'll have fun. Thanks American Muscle for the free shipping and good product.

    Truely Perfect!

    I bought the Exedy 400 Clutch kit, FRPP Throwout Bearing, FRPP Roller Pilot Bearing, and FRPP Pressure Plate Bolt and Dowel Kit from AM for my 2001 Bullitt. I bought my car last year with 104,000 miles on it, and shortly after driving it for a bit realized the TB was shot (it was squealing like a stuck pig), and figured I'd do this job right. I have 17.8 miles on the clutch and the clutch feel is lighter than the stock clutch that came out of the car. It really is...no bull. I also bought a new pivot stud, clutch fork, and a FRPP 6 bolt Billet Steel Racing Flywheel from other companies because AM did not have stock of those items. I can tell you without a doubt that even though I only have 17.8 miles on the car that Clutch is perfect. It would be perfect for a daily driver, perfect for mild racing like one does at the MCA Car shows where they have track days, great for some runs at the drag strip even. This clutch WILL NOT kill your leg. It grabs like crazy, and the engages about an inch or so off the floor and is fully engaged about an 1" more than that. I have not done hard pulls, but when you shift you feel it bite. I cannot wait to get 500 miles on this clutch and get it seated in. I have no weird noises, no hums, no chatter, no grinds, no rattles of ANY kind. It pays to do a clutch job right, and I was told by fellow Bullitt owners to DEFINITELY use a FRPP Throwout Bearing and toss the one that came in the kit. They also told me not to skimp, and to buy the pivot ball/stud, dowel, and bolt kit, get a NEW flywheel, and new Clutch Fork. ALL of those thing are what will make the clutch smooth again like it was when new...actually smoother. I know for a fact this clutch is good to 400 torque and maybe 450 torque, but around there I'd seriously look at the Mach 500 for that. For what I am doing and will do in the future with my car the Mach 400 is absolutely flawless. AM has a great price with free shipping on this, and this is topline stuff. If you want to daily drive your car and have fun in it, and race it occasionally and are within the specs of this clutch it's a great clutch. I will update this when I have 500+ miles or if anything changes. I am sooo happy I got this, and took the time to do the research on it. Thanks AM for all your help. It's now time to take it out for a bit and then come back and celebrate! The Bullitt is BACK! WooHoo! :D

    Excellent Replacement!!!

    Initially, my clutch was slipping, and my pilot bearing and throwout bearing were bad. There was lots of noise coming from the transmission, and my clutch was way out of adjustment. So, I took the plunge and bought this kit. Everything was included, and shipped timely. I also replaced my stock clutch fork (20 dollars) and bought a double hook clutch quadrant and firewall adjuster. I have no time or place to do this, so I had a shop install it. I must say this clutch has the perfect slight on/off feel for a daily driver that sees the track during the summer. The pedal effort is just as smooth as stock, if not easier. The noise from my transmission is gone and my car drives better than ever! This product is worth every penny! Thanks AM!

    Great "so far"

    I recently had tob to go out and went ahead and replaced my stock clutch. Kit does have tob, like many others I opted for the Ford Racing tob. I also replaced pilot bearing ((Ford Racing). My factory clutch took about twice the amount of pressure to push in compared to new one. I was actually shocked to find out how easy it was. It was all a great fit as well, no problems.

    Just replaced my stock clutch on an 01 Cobra at 72k miles with this clutch. When i got it back i couldn't tell the difference between my stock clutch except for that this one has slight better bite. The new clutch is also very quiet. Be sure to replace the throwout bearing and pilot bearing while your at it. Highly reccomended for those wanting the same feel as their stock clutch.

    Great Clutch! Great Price!

    I installed this clutch at the same time that I replaced my engine so, not sure on the time. This clutch works fantastic! I purchased it after reading several reviews, and I was not disappointed . It doesn't feel much stiffer than stock to me. It does have a little more of the on/off feel that you would expect from a performance clutch, but it is easy to get used to. The best part is, I was able to get this clutch from American Muscle for only about $10 more than the stock clutch was going to cost me at my local parts store! Good job American Muscle!

    Perfect

    This was the first time I dropped a transmission. It was a lot easier then I had anticipated. We had the car on jacks and about 2 feet off the ground. The clutch was a perfect fit and we had no problems installing it. The biggest issues we had were getting to the two bolts of the top of the transmission. We didn’t have to raise the front of the engine like we had heard in a few posts. The transmission actually went in easier then it came out. This clutch is awesome. I just have to let of the pedal about 2 inches and I’m engaged. With the 4-10 gears we purchased from American Muscle and installed at the same time, we have a completely different car. FAST!

    Great Replacement

    Ok first off my 02 GT had 95k miles on it and still had the factory clutch. My old clutch was pretty worn out. I had a local shop swap out the clutch with this Exedy Stage 2 along with Ford Racing throw out bearing, pilot bearing, clutch fork, rear main seal, and Steeda adj clutch kit. I have to say Wow! My old clutch setup must of been pretty bad. My clutch peddle is so much lighter, it honestly now feels as light as a hydrolic setup, but that just tells you how bad my old setup was. It does chatter a bit right now until it wears in, I had the flywheel resurfaced too. It has a good bite to it and is easy to drive around town. Its taken a bit to readjust but im getting use to it and loving it. If your on the fence like I was with buying this clutch dont be. Its worth it for the money.

    Fantastic Upgrade or Replacement!!!

    When I bought my 03' Mach 1, it already had a Stage 3 clutch kit installed. Everytime I shifted, it felt like I was trying to kick down a Redwood tree. I was tired how difficult it to shift, so I finally decided to do some research and find a kit that won't completely deminish the response and aid to the ease of the pedal...and all signs led to this Exedy 400 stage 2 clutch. When installilng this, or getting someone to install it for you, make sure to resurface the flywheel to prevent future problems. I couldn't be more happy with the ease of the pedal as well as the response/grab, plus my old man is couldn't be more excited to finally be able to borrow it himself (my only regret ha). Spend the money and get this...it is well worth it!
