Description
Pure Performance. If you're making some serious power in your heavily modified GT, Cobra, or 5.0 then a stock clutch can't handle it. Don't roast your gears by going with anything less than the powerful SPEC Stage 3. This clutch is rated to 680 ft-lbs of torque so it'll put those ponies to the pavement - where they belong - so you can roast some tread instead.

Race Ready. The SPEC Stage 3 Clutches are designed to be the ultimate street and strip clutch. A Stage 3 is designed to handle all the power you're putting down with the kind of quick engagement you need to win. Combining elements of a race clutch with a street clutch means a Stage 3 will hold up to many passes on the strip while still allowing you to let your high performance Pony stretch its legs on the street.

Premium Quality. The sprung hub, 6-puck design of the SPEC Stage 3 features a carbon semi-metallic friction material for unsurpassed bite and quick shifts. The Stage 3 Clutch includes the high clamp pressure plate, the 6 puck friction disc, a new throwout and pilot bearing and an alignment tool.

Value, Performance, Durability. When looking for a new clutch, trust Spec for the best in value and performance.

  • Designed for 1986-1995 5.0L with a T-5 or T-45
  • Designed for 1993-1998 Cobra with a T-5 or T-45

This Spec Clutch requires the use of a Spec flywheel for proper engagement. AmericanMuscle highly recommends the Steel Flywheel for this Stage 3 Clutch to avoid warping and optimum results. See the drop down menu option above.

Spec Stage 3 is awesome!

I installed this clutch about 2000 miles ago and couldn't be happier. Only chatters in reverse too! Recommend getting the billet steel flywheel with this one. Has tons of grip. Love how it engages so

  • This Spec Clutch requires the use of the Spec Flywheel for proper engagement. Spec has precise tolerances to ensure that their clutches and flywheels perform flawless clutch engagement. Using a Spec clutch with a resurfaced stock flywheel can result in premature clutch failure due to the clearances issues. So in the long run, it will be worth the extra cash to match your new clutch with the proper flywheel the first go around so you don't have to be replacing both again in a short time due to reusing the stock flywheel. Hope this helps!

    WOW!! GRIP GRIP GRIP

    This clutch is PERFECT, stage 4 would not be drivable in my opinion. Stage 3 is just perfect you get the performance of a drag car but also the every day easy driver feel. Yes it's a little stiffer then stock but it's worth it. Spec stage 3 clutch with spec light weight aluminum flywheel = Perfect set up. Do it while you're under there. Easy install

    Holds like none other

    Replaced my stage 1 with this stage 3 and spec aluminum flywheel and it holds like none other... pretty stiff pedal but you get used to it, nothing to write home about... my car is a daily and some people say its too much but i dont think so...

    Good Clutch 96 Cobra

    My clutch is way lighter to push. It is about a quarter of the stock pressure. I am still in the break-in phase. When it was first installed, the engagement would shake the car a little. The engagement is getting smoother and it does engage quickly. So far I am happy. I used FRPP bearings for the clutch. Good decision.

    This clutch is a big difference from my stock clutch. The clutch really does make my acceleration blast off. I definitely recommend this product.
