What’s up everyone, Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, here with a cure to that mushy clutch pedal, and that sticky clutch cable on your ride. I’m talking about this adjustable clutch kit for all 96-04 Mustangs. Simply put, this kit is going to make your car shift like new again by replacing and reinforcing some of the crucial components responsible for getting your car into gear properly and smoothly. The first and most obvious part of this kit is the brand new fully adjustable clutch cable which replaces your old gummed up factory cable. Now over time your clutch cable picks up all kinds of dirt and grime, making for inconsistent pedal feel. As you can see this new cable slides easily, and without any effort whatsoever, and when paired with other kit components, makes for a smooth pedal feel and full adjustability. The adjustability I’m talking about is made possible thanks to this firewall adjuster. This part makes life a whole lot easier when it comes to adjusting your clutch, thanks to the fact that you don’t have to crawl under your car anymore to do so. The new clutch cable will run through this piece mounted on your firewall and simply by turning this knob you can adjust the length of your clutch cable. Now this will also give you much more precise control over your clutch pedal engagement point to better suit your style of driving. The star of this kit without a doubt is the Billet aluminum double hook clutch quadrant. Your clutch cable runs through this little piece bearing the brunt of all those hard shifts. Now your stock quadrant is made from cheap plastic which can flex or even break causing mis-shifts especially when using heavier duty clutches and pressure plates. This Billet aluminum piece totally eliminates the cheap plastic, and is designed to hold up to even the hardest shifts. Installing this kit requires you to remove your factory clutch quadrant and cable, although it’s nothing more complicated than removing a few bolts and snaking some cables, you do have to crawl underneath your car making it somewhat of a time consuming install that should take you a couple of hours. Now we here at AmericanMuscle always recommend installing this kit especially when using aftermarket clutches. It’s a simple peace of mind that will make your life a whole lot easier, trust me. If you’re experiencing a mushy clutch pedal, mis-shifts or an overall poor shifting experience, then this clutch adjuster kit for your 96-04 Mustang will have your car shifting like new all over again.

Good quality but needed to modify
Happy with the product and its nice to adjust the clutch feel without getting underneath the car. The install took a bit longer as the adjuster needed to be filed down to fit. The hardware was a bit difficult to place due to the limited space to work with but it's possible.Helpful (0)

A much needed part
When I changed my clutch and cable I purchased one of these at the same time. It is really nice to be able to adjust where you want your clutch to engage. I hated the stock clutch because of the pedal engaged. Now I have it right where I want it.Helpful (3)

Is the double hook quadrant required? Is the double hook quadrant required, or will this product work with the Steeda quick release clutch quadrant?
This firewall adjuster is actually required if you wanted to use the Steeda Quick Release Quadrant. You could use either of those quadrants with this firewall adjustor though. Only thing to keep in mind is if you go with the double hook quadrant, that requires an adjustable clutch cable as well.
Will this part be compatible with a fully stock clutch system? My cable is stock, my quadrant is stock (pretty much everything is stock). I get a tweeting sound coming from my throw out bearing when my clutch pedal is fully released, and this should fix my problem. I just want to know if this part will be compatible with a stock cable, or if I have to buy an aftermarket cable and quadrant.
The SR Performance Firewall Cable Adjuster works with the factory cable, but requires the use of an after-market solid quadrant. It will not work with your factory quadrant.
Would I able to combine this with the maximum motorsport clutch quadrant and Ford adjustable clutch cable?
Yes, this firewall adjuster will be compatible with those items.
