Centerforce is the one. Many people I respect are sold on them. I have the Dual Friction setup on my car.

I am also a Centerforce fan. Just put the Centerforce II behind my warmed over 396/Muncie combo. Pedal pressure is the same, doesn’t slip and is easy to drive in traffic. While you are in there check out GM’s 15 lb. Flywheels. A little cranky when the engine is cold but you will love the throttle response.

Centerforce makes very good clutches. Sounds like you have a mildly built engine, so the Centerforce II would be fine. Stay away from the lighter flywheel. Throttle response might be better, but driveability suffers. I know because I have one.

Jeff -

With all the work involved in a clutch job, why worry about a few more bucks for a top-quality clutch? Do it once and do it right so you don't have to do it again. I've used Centerforce II's in six different project cars over the last eight years, wouldn't even think about using anything else.
