Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with 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

Ideal Replacement. If you enjoy driving your Mustang hard, especially if you have some bolt-ons, it's easy to wear out your weak stock clutch. If your clutch is starting to slip or have that unmistakeable "burnt" smell, an Exedy Mach 500 Stage 3 clutch will give you the holding power you need to light 'em up while maintaining driveability.

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 2005 to 2010 4.6L V8 Mustangs with a TR3650 manual 10-spline transmission, including the GT and Bullitt models.

  • Disc Dimensions: 280mm outer diameter
  • 10 Spline
  • Torque Rating @ Flywheel: 622 ft-lbs
  • Torque Rating @ Rear Wheels: 498 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.

Is there any other accessories recommended, slave, pilot bearing, throw out bearing? etc....I just figured that I might as well do it all and do it right. input is greatly appreciated 2008 gt bama tuned, catback roush exhause, shaker hood , ford racing CAI Thanks, Steven


  • You should replace the clutch assembly, pilot bearing, the rear main seal while it's exposed during the clutch replacement, and the throw out bearing/slave cylinder

can I use the stock flywheel with this clutch kit? I'm looking on resurfacing my stock flywheel and installing a new Ford Racing Roller Pilot Bearing with this Exedy Mach 500 clutch kit?


  • Im telling you right now just get the exedy flywheel it will accelerate quicker due to being 6 lbs lighter also the design is rigid and causes less centrifugal force. I just got a exedy 500 and flywheel installed on my 07 gt and best money I ever spent. Also if u resurface it still could have internal cracks or heat warpage its casting I wouldn't trust it.

daily driver? just wondering if this clutch would be okay for daily driving. I drive my stang almost everyday, but I also take it to the track on the weekends. just making sure the clutch wont glaze over in stop and go traffic


  • This clutch will maintain daily drivability, but unless you are putting down some serious power, this clutch might be overkill. I'd suggest giving our Customer Service a call when you have a minute to discuss in further detail your application and your goals with upgrading your clutch. Hope this helps!

    Grips enough for 510 whp

    This Exedy clutch is a very fine clutch. I spent a long time researching the best clutches and decided on the Exedy Mach 500. My mustang has 510 whp and the stock clutch was slipping in all gears but 1st. After installation and breaking in the clutch, the Mach 500 clutch holds during full boost in all gears. No vibration or additional noise as compared to stock is observed in daily driving. However, the pedal pressure is about 50% more than stock as it should be! The Mach 500 friction disk also has a smaller inner diameter as compared to stock which increases the contact area slightly. Clutch engagement after break in is very similar to stock. If you haven't installed a new clutch before, this will take you much longer than one day, especially if you are using a 4-point jack stand type lift. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile experience that will teach you a great deal about your Mustang. Removing the top two transmission bolts will require a 24" or so extension with a swivel. Angle the extension starting from the passenger side of the transmission towards the two bolts. You might also need liquid wrench to help removal of these bolts.

    Amazing product

    This clutch is so much better then the stock clutch. Install time in this clutch was fairly simple taking the trans out is a little tricky though it took me about 6 hours to do this job. After install I pressed that clutch pedal down and you notice a big difference for the feel it's smooth and firm not like the stock clutch and when you start driving it grabs that flywheel and doesn't let go or slip. After breaking it in for 500 miles I took it to the track and it lowered my times by a few tenths of a second but man I love this clutch it comes with everything you need to replace the stock one and it's a really good deal for the price and peformance I really reccomend this clutch for people who have gears and bolt ons.

    All the power to the tire

    I couldn't believe the difference. After I let it seat in for 500 miles. I let it rip and wow it peeled the tires in 4 gears which I could never do in my 07 mustang gt which dynod at 330rwhp. This clutch is amazing in all aspects. the drivability to me seems better than stock and shifting is smooth no chatter and severly grippy might have a sore neck lol. Peddle is stiffer but I find it way easier to drive. Actually feels like a clutch now.

    Nice upgrade from stock

    I've had this clutch in the car for about 2 weeks and 750 miles so it is just completing the break in period. The engagement is smooth and progressive with no chatter at all. Slightly higher pedal pressure than stock. It is slightly noisier than stock but that is the trade off when you begin increasing power levels. I'm very happy with the performance and street manners, and I'm also looking forward to many 1/4 mile passes dumping this clutch at 4K rpm.

    Roush Stage 3

    I was looking for something as an upgrade to the stock clutch that Roush left installed on their Stage 3. I drive this car daily, and I DO NOT baby it. I drive my car as it was meant to be driven. The stock clutch was too soft and allowed for too much slipping with supercharger installed. Installation was a breeze and is straight forward, just like any clutch install should be. I followed the recommended break in period, which was difficult as I could immediately feel more power. With the Exedy Mach 500 there is a noticeable difference in performance. I now feel like I am able to get the maximum performance from the car. The true test was letting my wife drive it. She did not notice any driveability issues, and she said it felt comparable to the stock clutch. She also commented how much more powerful the car felt. I have not made it to the track yet to truly test the performance, but the "seat of the pants" dyno says there is a big difference. I would highly recommend for any power adder Mustangs that need good street manners.

    Good Product

    My transmission broke into pieces so i wanted to try out something else , every time i asked around i was recommended Exedy , so i tried them and i am impressed , it came with everything you need , no extra charges , i coupled this with my spec aluminum flywheel and it grips quite well and still pulls in 4th and 5th gear , the only negative thing i got for it is the throw out bearing , your supposed to change it out with the one supplied but its made in china so i just got another ford racing one and replaced it with that one , i highly recommend you take it easy on the clutch for at least 500 miles

    Exedy Mach 500 Stage 2 Clutch

    Great clutch - I installed in my 05 daily driver. Definitely stiffer than stock and the Wash DC traffic will give the leg a bit of a workout, but engagement is smooth and predictable. I have 140K miles on the car and couldn't really tell just how far down the gradual decline in the stock clutch function had become. This is a great clutch. I installed this myself in my garage and it went smoothly, just took me longer than planned, but only because of gettting pulled away and not having enough of the right tools like 3/8' extensions, but that's an unrelated issue.

    Excellent street clutch

    Knowing the capacity of this clutch I assumed that it would bite like a race clutch even though the company and the reviews called it a street clutch. This was a very wrong assumption based off of older cars with older clutch technology from other companies. Initially clutch engagement was on the floor, however the grab was like a brand new car, not a race car. By time the car had 250 miles on it the friction point had moved to a very reasonable location and by about 350 miles the clutch was extremely easy to drive smoothly. To the point I was forgetting I had a performance clutch in it. This is an excellent street clutch by any standard and the progressiveness of the friction point is easy enough for anybody to drive perfectly smooth. While at the same time having enough grip for me to spin power shifting 4th at over 105mph. Something the car had not done before.

    Great Clutch

    Fit my Mustang perfectly! Seems to be a good quality, would be nice if it came with the throw out bearing. I'm almost done with the break in process but I have gotten on the throttle a couple times and it grips amazingly compared to my stock clutch. Install wouldn't have been too bad if two of my exhaust manifold to Mid pipe flange bolts hadn't snapped off and had to be drilled out.

    It does change the feel of the clutch pedal. Its doesn't take long to adjust. The pedal seems to have less dead space before engaging. Just had a supercharger install, wanted a peace of mind about burning the stock clutch with the extra torque.

    perfect for daily drivers

    After I had this clutch and matching Lightweight flywheel, throw out bearing and pilot bearing installed the first time I test drove the car it was like a whole new car I was so use to having to press the pedal to the floor in order for clutch to engauge, now the clutch is fully engauged with the pedal less than half way to the floor like it should be, nomore need to press pedal to the floor in order to change gear, smooth as butter and more than enough grab if ud like to lite the tires,I was in the Christmas Parade 12/7 and with all the stop and go it never over heated, no smell, no chatter, and with only maby 50 miles on the clutch its a perfect match to my Comp Cams BT281LL and 4:10 gears, Yes I recamend the clutch for daily driving no matter how heavy the stop n g is with traffic...

    Product is a perfect replacement

    I have noticed better grip in my clutch, I only have 419 at the rear wheels but this mod was so I can keep upgrading. Stock clutch started slipping, this one obviously not. Make sure to upgrade your throw out bearing as well because this one has much more pressure, and in addition get the braided cable as well, so as to avoid any future problems.

    Great Clutch, Feels like stock

    It's been awhile since I installed this clutch. I ran into some install issues with my car, but nothing to do with the clutch. I have the cut n clamp mac prochamber, so I had some issues with the cut off parts of the midpipe and re-fitment issues..... took some time with and a case of beer on jackstands. I mated this clutch with the LW Steel flywheel - the weight difference is crazy - and the exedy hydraulic TOB. Originally installed on the car about 1,000 miles before I installed my supercharger. I wanted it well worn in and ready to go when I finally upped the HP/TQ. The bite is perfect, no slippage even when banging the gears hard, or with 4k launches. Pedal feel is marginally stiffer than stock, but it's bearable for a DD, even in rush hour DC Metro traffic (and that's a beast) All in all, I highly recommend this product, its great, feels almost like stock and holds the whipple charged car like its nothing...

    I still have not put 100 miles on it but i could definitely tell the difference between the stage 3 VS. OEM. Specially off the line in non-aggressive manner of course. There is a 400 mile or so break-in period before I can start ripping up the asphalt.

    Great clutch - stiff pedal

    After smoking my stock clutch last fall after my second pass with DRs, i decided to upgrade this spring. I went back and forth between this clutch and RST. And in the end, this clutch seemed to be a better bang for $$. I don't have any track runs yet, but this clutch definitely hooks solid (and a bit earlier in pedal travel) than the stocker. My only complaint is the slight increase in pedal pressure over stock, but a good trade off for the investement. I was considering a self install, but after getting a $350 quote from a well know local shop, I just had them install it... money well spent!
