Even though it is required @ 11.99/11.49, it's not a bad idea even for slower cars. I have not personally seen, but have heard about 12-13 second cars having clutch failures which is an ugly and EXTREMELY dangerous thing to happen. Do your feet and legs a favor and get one now

I have had one on my car even when I was running mid 12's

Just a thought

Back in my high school days ('60s) one of my racer buddies disintegrated his flywheel in a street race ('57 chevy, 327, 375 HP) and almost lost his right foot...I remember how long he spent on crutches...that's why we put a Lakewood on our street/strip 'stang...like they say, --it happens

Gentlemen,

What flywhell, Clutch and SFI Bell does anyone suggest on a 440rwhp GT with a Tremec 5-speed?

Not even sure which Tremec to use...a TKO or 3550?

Car is an '88.

Thanks,

Vito

Tremec Tranny

Vito,
You probably could go with either tranny, but the TKO is added insurance. I went with a TKO(they shipped me a TKO II in error and I kept it), A McLeod Blowproof and Spec III clutch and Alum flywheel.) It's a nice set up and is still steetable. Also, there are some new versions coming out of the TKO, so you may wan't to check those out on the Tremec website.

I agree with Subtle, that is a good combo, the new Tremec 600 with spec stage 3- 6puck carbon, with either an aluminum or steel billet SFI flywheel, Mcleod SFI bell work as a great combo that will take unreal amounts of power.
