    Review & Install Video

    Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of Exedy's grooved Mach 500 stage 3 clutch with a hydraulic throwout bearing for 2005 to 2016 GT Mustangs. This particular stage 3 clutch is a good option for anyone looking to replace or upgrade their current clutch. This is a good option for stock to moderately modified Mustangs that see some hard driving or track time. This is pretty much the same Mach 500 stage 3 clutch that you guys already know with the sprung hub design. What Exedy did here was used an organic compound disc to keep the drivability nearly the same as the stock clutch, and keep a smooth engagement with what I call a firm pedal feel. Then they paired that with an upgraded pressure plate, so the clutch can handle more abuse. The difference with these clutches lies in the pressure plate. Exedy has used a grooved pressure plate, which should offer more holding power than the standard smooth pressure plate would. This means that the clutch will be able to hold more torque than the traditional stage 3 clutch can, about 30 foot-pounds more to put a round number on it, and all without what I classify as a huge jump in price over the standard stage 3 clutch, which is nice. The S197 version is rated at 522 foot-pounds of torque, and the S550 clutch is rated at 616 foot-pounds of torque, and that's at the rear wheels, just to clarify. And if that's not enough for you, then Exedy does have a stage 4 option on the site. Keep in mind that if you're looking at a new clutch, you should have something in mind for your flywheel, as well, and I'd recommend just picking a new one up. When it comes to the install, I will say that I'll recommend taking this to a shop unless you have prior experience in this area. This is going to be a three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you're probably looking at about four hours' time if you do decide to tackle this yourself. If you choose to go that route, I'd also recommend trying to gain access to a lift. You're obviously going to be dropping your trans, drive shaft and exhaust, so performing this on jack stands could be a little difficult. And make sure you have a torque wrench. Lastly, don't forget about that clutch break-in period no matter who's installing the clutch. You're looking at about a 750-mile break-in period under normal driving conditions and before you start driving hard. Again, the Exedy stage 3 clutch has a grooved pressure plate that allows for the clutch to handle more load, and still has an organic compound disc, so you don't have to worry about heavy pedal feel. This clutch has a higher torque rating than the standard stage 3 clutch does, and isn't that much more expensive. As always, check this thing out online and see what you think for yourself. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Ideal Performance 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 Grooved Mach 500 Stage 3 clutch with Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is an affordable, upgraded performance replacement that will fit your budget and demanding driving style.

    Grooved Pressure Plate. Featuring a unique grooved pressure plate, this Exedy Clutch offers more holding power than their standard smooth pressure plate equipped clutch kits. Exedy has machined grooves directly onto the face of their Pressure Plates which is designed to increase the "mean effective radius", which in turn increases the torque holding capacity of the clutch - perfect for high torque Mustangs.

    Street or Strip. The Exedy Grooved 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 Grooved 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 grooved 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 Grooved Mach 500 Clutch with Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is designed for 2011 to 2017 GT Mustangs with a MT-82 manual 23-spline transmission.

    Specifications:
    • Disc Dimensions: 280mm outer diameter
    • 23 Spline
    • Torque Rating @ Rear Wheels: 616 ft-lbs
    • Includes Slave Cylinder/Hydraulic Throwout Bearing, Alignment Tool and Pilot Bearing

    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.

    I have a 2016 5.0 with preferred package, I am going to be adding a supercharger to it at the end of the year, but I want to get the clutch done now, what all would I need ? I want to make sure I do it right.

    DouglasQ

    • With this Exedy Grooved Mach 500 Stage 3 Clutch w/ Hydraulic Throwout Bearing we would recommend a matching Exedy flywheel. We would also recommend a braided steel clutch line such as the SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line, item 389025 or the Steeda Heavy Duty Braided Hydraulic Clutch Line, item 387545. https://www.americanmuscle.com/srperformance-hydraulic-clutchline-2015.html https://www.americanmuscle.com/steeda-hydraulic-clutchline-2015.html

    This clutch kit is recommended to upgrade the flywheel but the flywheel claims to only fit up to 2014. What flywheel will I need for my 2015?

    KristopherG

    • For a 2015 Mustang GT I would recommend using the Exedy Lightweight Racing Flywheel - 8 Bolt, item 387550, https://www.americanmuscle.com/exedy-race-flywheel-8bolt-2015gt.html.

    I currently have an RXT with the McLeod lightened steel flywheel. I am going to ditch the RXT for this clutch combo, will it all work with the McLeod flywheel? On a 12gt

    drew302

    • The Exedy Grooved Mach 500 Stage 3 Clutch will have no issues using your existing McLeod flywheel, however it will need to be resurfaced to ensure proper mating with the new clutch.

    Buy this kit and do not fit, which Flywheel should I get?

    Pablo

    • Hey Pablo, Always get brand matching flywheel when upgradin the clutch. So any exedy flywheel we carry should bolt up to that clutch just fine but 62510 comes highly recommended

    I have a 2015 stage 2 roush would I have to upgrade flywheel or could I get by with the flywheel that's on already with just the clutch kit application?

    orrinb

    • You could have your existing flywheel resurfaced when installing the Exedy Grooved Mach 500 Stage 3 Clutch kit, but we normally recommend purchasing the matching flywheel which you can find here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/exedy-race-flywheel-8bolt-2015gt.html

    I have couple questions if the stock couch is 5 point of 10 stiff ( 10 is soft ) how much is the exedy comparing to the stock, and does it fit directly or needs adjustment , and what about the HYDRAULIC THROWOUT BEARING that everyone is complaining about

    ybina93

    • This Clutch will be a bit more stiffer than the stock one. This Clutch will be a direct bolt on for 2011 to 2017 GT Mustangs with a MT-82 manual 23-spline transmission. It is a good idea to get an Exedy Flywheel. The Exedy Clutch may not bolt up correctly to your stock flywheel. The Hydraulic Throwout Bearing that is included in this Kit is more heavy duty than your stock throwout bearing. Changing this throwout bearing will ensure that you have proper gear engagement while giving you more reliability.

      Perfect for daily as well as track driving

      I'm not going to write a lengthy review as others already did an excellent job telling everything you need to know about it. One thing that you must know is that if your transmission is still using stock oil you must switch to the Royal Purple Synchromax. If you won't your shifts will be glitchy, grindy and just bad. Don't forget to get Exedy Flywheel with it or clutch won't fit the stock.

      Great but......

      took my 2013 mustang gt to a shop for install all went well clutch is a little bit stiffer than stock puts the power to the ground much better my only complaint is that the clutch has a almost light feel to it while driving and shifting its only stiff when i,m sitting at a red light its kind of strange its hard to explain took some time to get used to how the clutch engages the second it leaves the floor i mean its instant engagement but all in all it gets the job done

      A stage 2 clutch

      I have a 2016 GT/CS and the clutch that comes stock has a delay built in to it that is incredibly irritating for anyone who takes pride on their shifting and hates seeing the hood drop and jump and every time they shift. I got this clutch complete with the EXEDY flywheel, and can now shift gears quick enough to keep the exhaust from fading before the next gear. Incredible upgrade.

      Works Great!

      Replaced my factory clutch, pressure plate, and hydraulic throwout bearing with this complete Exedy kit. Pressure plate bolted right up to the factory 2014 Ford Mustang GT flywheel. The only difference is that the factory pressure plate used 9 bolts, and the Exedy pressure plate only uses 6 bolts. I sent an email to Exedy -- they confirmed this was acceptable. I have just over 1k miles on the car since the install and everything feels great. Pedal is slightly firmer, and the clutch puts the power to the tires in every gear.

      American Muscle doesn't disclose that this clutch kit requires an Exedy flywheel as it doesn't fit the manufacturers flywheel. Cost me another few days on my build to order and another few hundred bucks to complete the project. Not cool.

      Amazing Clutch

      I bought this clutch because my slave cylinder went out at 31k miles. If the transmission was coming out, then the whole clutch was getting replaced. I am very pleased with it, full engagement all the way through the peddle, much firmer than the factory clutch.

      This clutch kit bits very well!!! It grabs almost instantly when you let off the clutch pedal. I tried to install this kit on the stock flywheel just to see if it would work and it did not match up at all. I paired this kit with the exedy lightweight flywheel and so far so good!!
