      Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation


      • High Performance Upgrade.
      • 6 Puck Design.
      • Semi-Metallic Carbon Disc.
      • Includes Throwout Bearing & Tool.
      • Fits 96-Mid 01 GT, 93-98 Cobra and 86-95 5.0.


      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 1993-1998 Cobra with a T-5 or T-45
      • Designed for 1996-Mid 2001 GT with a T-5 or T-45

      • 10 Spline

      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.

      Technical Note. Because Ford made changes to the Mustang GT and Bullitt in mid year of 2001, be sure to check and see what kind of transmission type you have before ordering.

        5 2001 Bullitt - Dan

        Awesome clutch BUT...

        ive had this clutch for a minute now, and it's nice but I would highly recommend upgrading the quadrant, get a Lakewood HD clutch fork, and the best throw out bearing you can get. It may just be random luck but with my experience this clutch has torn up all the factory components (including the clutch pedal itself!) and now I'm having to do a complete overhaul on the clutch system.

        Spec clutch

        the install was very easy with no problems at all. I installed a ford racing clutch cable along with this clutch and I couldn't ask for better performance. Pulls awesome and the clutch pedal is real easy little force to push pedal down. Awesome all around.

        Hold On

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

        5 1998 GT - MrGT Installation Time: Weekend


        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

        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.

      I have a 96 Mustang and it says it can only fit 96mid, how do I know if it’s 96mid?

      • This Spec Stage 3 Clutch is designed to fit a 1996 to mid-year production 2001 GT with a T-5 or T-45. This clutch will fit all 1996 GT's up to Mustangs produced in the middle of the year of 2001 (or a production date of 6/2001).

      flywheel why steel? and not aluminum?

      • Both steel and aluminum will be a great material for a flywheel. Aluminum will be more orientated for racing. However if you are not racing steel will work out just great. With steel you will also be able to resurface this unlike the aluminum.

      stock flywheel can i resurface my stock flywheel and just use that its a lot cheaper a shop in town will do it for 80$? or do i have to drop over 300 on a "spec" flywheel? thanks

      • 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!
