      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
      • Great Driveability
      • Organic Compound Disc
      • 498 Ft-lbs of Torque @ Rear Wheels
      • Includes Alignment Tool and Pilot Bearing
      • Fits 2011-2014 GT Mustang


      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 1 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 1 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 1 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.

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

      • Disc Dimensions: 280mm outer diameter
      • 23 Spline
      • 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.

        Good clutch pressure plate

        The pilot bearing provided went out after 4000 miles. I had to drop the transmission again and ended up buying a new pilot from my local ford dealer.

        Strong clutch

        I was looking for the most street friendly clutch (without the rattle of a dual disc) that could be used for a future supercharger. About 1000 miles on it now. Pedal feel is about 20 percent stiffer than stock. The engagement is much shorter making a quick take off from a light more difficult. It grips so well letting the clutch out quickly at 1500 results in immediate bog due to Traction control. Turning off traction control solves the problem. Power shifting at 7000 plus with zero slip Good dual purpose clutch with a high grip level

        Feels like Stock!

        I am about 120 miles of the 500 mile break in period. 1st impressions are great esp cuz I paired it with the lightened flywheel. Feels just like stock, and I can't wait to do some high rpm shifts to see if the lockout issue has been resolved!

        Nice and grabby

        Maybe a hair heavier than stock. Still in the break in period but so far so good. The stock clutch was trash and I couldn't wait to get rid of it.

        I bought clutch kit with exedy slave and new oem flywheel less than a month ago and the pressure plate already destroyed along with the new slave cylinder. No warranty due to it being "stage 3" even thought the parts are defective.

        Definitely recommend

        I got my stang used from ford dealer and the clutch was really stiff... 4 months later the clutch went bad and well obviously the car is used and I have to be responsible about the new damages so I bought this clutch. A billion times better!!! Smooth engagement, not stiff at all definitely recommend this clutch!! It says stage 3 but honestly don’t feel like it. Nothing to complain about.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      For the 2011 mustang gt do you need to buy a throwout bearing or could you use the stock throwout bearing for this clutch

      • If you are upgrading your clutch it is recommended to order a new throwout bearing every time. Placing a used throwout bearing in a new clutch will not preform well.

      What exactly does this come with? There should be a list of parts included.

      • This includes the following: Pressure Plate, Clutch Disc, Alignment Tool, Pilot Bearing.

      Any fitment isues if I use this clutch kit with the McLeod Lightened Steel Flywheel? Car is a 2012 gt.

      • We only recommend using this with an appropriate Exedy flywheel.

      Will this clutch replace the stock twin disc clutch that is oem on a 2012 mustang gt 6 speed? If so will it have an issue connecting to the stock flywheel?

      • This will be a good replacement clutch for the factory OEM clutch in a 11-14 Mustang GT model equipped with the MT-82 manual transmission. Now when upgrading the clutch, we generally do recommend the same brand flywheel as this will guarantee proper fitment.

      • The MT82 transmission in your 2011 GT is 23 spline, and this clutch will fit that transmission/vehicle.

      Will this clutch work with a mcleod flywheel? 1 answer
      I searched the product number listed by AM (Part #: 07807LB) and it's listed as a "Racing Stage 1" on the Exedy website. My 2012 GT has headers, AL driveshaft and Tune (among other things). It's a daily driver with occassional road course track days. The term "racing" in a description often translates to "you will hate this for a daily driver". Could you clarify the product description and reccomend an alternate product if appropriate? 1 answer
