    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey Guys. I'm Justin, with, and this is my detailed overview of the McLeod Street Extreme Clutch Kit, available for your '86 to mid-2001 GT, and all '93 to '98 Cobras. All right, guys. In this video, I'm gonna talk to you about what you can expect as far as power-holding capabilities when using this clutch, how it's gonna get you there as far as materials and components, and then finally a quick little walk-through on the install. And obviously, guys, the trans has to come down for this one so I'm gonna immediately knock it up to a full 3 out of 3 wrenches on the Difficulty meter. Dropping the trans isn't the end of the world, but it does involve a fair amount of work, and we will have a little bit more of a general walk-through later on. All right, guys. You should be checking out the McLeod Street Extreme Clutch Kit here for your Fox-Body SN95 or early Cobra if you plan on making around 700 horse power and 700 pound feet of torque at the crank and you're looking for one of the best streetable clutches around for your T5, or T45 trans, equipped with a 10 spline input shaft. This thing is SFI certified and is recommended for any street strip car out there equipped with a street tire, or radial, in the words of McLeod. I'm sure a lot of you guys are probably pretty familiar with the name "McLeod" by now, and you should be because they've been around for over 40 years in the Mustang world and actually helped develop and design clutches for both Rauch and Celine, and even helped develop the flywheel used in the Cobra R and the '03 and '04 Terminator Cobra. Now they're still pumping out quality clutch components to this day for a wide variety of applications and all their stuff is extremely top notch. So, the Street Extreme Clutch here from McLeod is their burliest single-disc option available for the Mustang with the Street Pro, and the Super Street Pro, leading up to this option here. Again, the Street Extreme, which is capable of holding right around 700 horse power and 700 pound feet of torque at the crank, depending on your application. Now, if you plan on making some more power than that, it's probably time to start looking into a twin disc option. If you did wanna stick with McLeod, both their RST and RXT are extremely popular both here on the site and in the Mustang world and both will handle a little bit more power than this clutch here. But since this video is about the Street Extreme Clutch here, let's talk a little bit more in-depth about this particular clutch, how it's able to hold the amount of power it can, and basically, how it's gonna get you there. Now, you have two things working for you here, guys. Obviously, the pressure plate, but first and foremost, let's break down this dual-face ceramic clutch disc. Unlike McLeod's entry level clutches, such as the Street Pro, or Super Street Pro, which do utilize a combination of organic materials and ceramic, the Street Extreme here is gonna utilize a 100% ceramic material for the friction disc, and it's going to be one of the more aggressive materials used in clutch applications and it's capable of holding a whole bunch of power. Now, when I say aggressive, I'm basically referring to the material, again, with the ceramic disc here. The engagement sometimes can be a little rougher than those organic compound discs because, again, you're not getting any slip with the ceramic disc. It might take a little getting used to driving this thing on the street for the very first time, but once you get used to it and put some miles on the clutch, definitely be no big deal. In addition to that, sometimes guys can refer to as a ceramic discs being a little noisy. And what that means is, you might hear a little chatter from time-to-time. Now, I do say "typically" because this does not seem to be the case here with the McLeod Street Extreme, as a lot of our customers have pointed out. Check out those customer reviews if you haven't done so already. They all report back a very quiet operation here with the Street Extreme, and a very streetable clutch, overall, despite that very aggressive material. In addition to that, a lot of them have reported back with absolutely no slip whatsoever. But obviously, guys, the clutch disc is only one part of the equation here. There also is the pressure plate to factor in. And McLeod Street Extreme does include their high-clamp load pressure plate which will aid in the power-holding capabilities. But I will defer back to the customer reviews again because, again, a lot of our guys have reported with a very enjoyable pedal feel. This thing is definitely not gonna be a leg killer by any stretch of the imagination. The problem that you're gonna encounter sometimes is that with these heavy duty single-disc clutch options is that the pressure plate that they use sometimes can be a total leg killer. Especially if you drive the car on the street a lot, you're gonna have a very heavy pedal. And if you get stuck in traffic, well, well all know, we've been there before, and it's not fun. Again, that is not the case here with the McLeod Street Extreme. Even with their high-pressure load, or high-clamp load pressure plate, this thing is gonna provide a very streetable experience on the street, and it's gonna give you a pedal feel that's only slightly firmer than stock. I do want to quickly point out, guys, that if you are shopping for clutches and you do have a little bit more money left over in the budget, check out an after-market flywheel at the same time. Trust me. I'd definitely recommend upgrading because you are gonna be in there doing the work at the same time. And ultimately, you might even get a little bit more performance out of your set up depending if you go with the steel option, or maybe even a lightweight aluminium option, both from McLeod, and both you can find here on the site. And speaking of budget, guys, the McLeod stuff, despite being very high quality, really isn't going to impact your wallet too much here. You're looking at the mid-to-$300 price point for the Street Extreme clutch kit, which in my opinion is very reasonable and will fall right in line with some other comparable clutch options from other big-name manufacturers, such as Spec, Ram, or even EXEDY. Now, before we get into the install, guys, I do wanna quickly remind you, make sure you're ordering the right clutch for your application because I'd hate to see you order the wrong clutch. Again, this particular clutch is only gonna fit your 10 spline T5 or T45 trans, basically from all 1986 to mid-2001 GTs, and of course those early Cobras. If you do have a 2001 GT, just make sure you have the T45 because if you have a TR3650, the Tremec trans, you will need to order a different clutch entirely. As far as the install, guys, well, again, because the trans does need to get dropped for this one, because you do need to get that drive shaft out of the way, and the exhaust in some cases as well, I'm gonna knock this one up to a full 3 out of 3 wrenches on the difficulty scale. Maybe a half, to a full day in the garage or shop to get everything knocked out. Now, if you've ever dropped a trans before, you know it's not the end of the world but there is a good amount of work involved here, especially if you're doing this one on your back on jack stands. So, if you feel like taking this one to your local shop to get installed, I wouldn't blame you. On the other hand, if you are a DIY type of dude and you like to do all of your installs yourself, well then you should know the deal by now if you've dropped a trans before. Just make sure to have a good toolbox on hand, including the full gambit of sockets, some pry bars, a trans jack would be definitely helpful in this case here, guys, and of course a lift will be your best friend. You can do this one on your back. I know I've done it before, however, I definitely don't recommend it. All right, guys, wrapping this one up here. I've used McLeod clutches in some of my personal cars before with great results and I'd recommend them to anybody out there watching at home. If you're looking for an affordable single-disc clutch that's gonna be very streetable yet still hold a bunch of power, the Street Extreme would definitely be a good option for you.

        Hello, Would this kit fit the t-56 in a 95 gt. Engine is a 408 windsor. Thankyou.

        • The McLeod Street Extreme Clutch Kit is compatible with the 95 GT Engine, or your 408W, however most T56 transmissions will have a 26 spline input shaft, making them incompatible with this 10 spline clutch. If your T56 utilizes a 26 spline input shaft, you would need the version with a 26 spline clutch disc, linked below:

        Hello, The pressure plate doesnt seem to fit my flywheel, it doesnt sit flush, i have a OEM flywheel. Do i need the flywheel from mcleod??

        • The pressure plate should work with both OEM and McLeod flywheels, however typically the best fit is with matched parts of the same brand.

        Helpful (0)

        Would this clutch work just fine with a stock 302 engine? Or would I need to upgrade the HP and torque to compensate for the rate of this type of clutch? I don’t want really jerky/ rigid shifts and ride feel.

        • The McLeod Street Extreme Clutch Kit is a very aggressive clutch, and is not recommended for stock applications.

        Helpful (0)

        Do they sell just the disc? If i use the 10 spline now and upgrade the transmission later would I be able to buy just the 26 spline disc? Also has anyone used this with an aluminum flywheel, I have 463hp and 494 tq at the wheel and I am very curious on how a aluminum flywheel will work with this setup. Currently using a billet steel one.

        • At this time we do not offer just the clutch disc. An Aluminum flywheel can be used with this, however it will not be as durable as a steel flywheel.

        Helpful (0)

        Will it fit on a 97 gt 4,6l 5speed standard with nothin else required to complete the upgrade?

        • The McLeod Street Extreme Clutch Kit will fit a 97 GT without needing any other parts. However, you will have to have your factory flywheel resurfaced.

            This clutch is really really nice, even tho I am still in the break in period the clutch feels to be very grippy and still maintains a completely stock feel with a stock clutch pedal pressure. Highly recommend it can't wait to throw some gears once the 500 miles is up!

            So far, so good

            It's still early in usage after recently installing it a few days ago. The pedal effort is noticeably easier than the Ford Motorsport clutch I had in it previously. Time will tell. Replacing a clutch on this model takes longer if you have headers.

            I've personally owned and serviced several Fox bodies over the past fifteen years. The last two clutch brands I have install have been McLeod. The Street Extreme series is high quality, does not slip under high RPM load -- and with a manual clutch, this this pack does not have the slow driving, parking lot, clutch "chatter" like other race style clutches. - Adam

            This is hands down the best clutch I have ever used. Install was just like any clutch. Break in period was just like normal too. Man does it grab! You can seriously just dump the clutch without worry. And it's not even a stiff clutch. Its actually on the lighter side in my opinion. I will be using this clutch from now on!

            Poor quality control from factory

            This was my first Mcloed product. I've heard nothing but good things about the performance of this clutch so I decided it would be a good fit for my car. I also purchased it with a McLeod chromoly flywheel. Everything in the box looks good however when I went to bolt the clutch up the pressure plate holes did not line up perfectly with the flywheel. The holes are clearly drilled close enough that there wasn't a mistake with mismatched flywheel/clutch but they were far enough off that the bolts wouldn't catch the holes. I needed the clutch in the car so I ended up reaming the holes out to fit as the dowels are what centers the plate anyways. After my modifications the clutch bolted up and I'm looking forward to breaking it in and seeing how it holds up on my nitrous car. Overall its not the end of the world that I had to modify the plate. However, for the price and the hype surrounding this clutch I was very disapointed to see such a lapse in quality control from factory. I have used Exedy clutches in multiple JDM cars I have owned in the past and so far have had far better experiences with them. I would recomend Exedy over Mcloed in the future.
