Looking to buy a clutch. Thinking either McLeod RXT Street Twin Disc Clutch or monster stage 3. Any other suggestions welcome trying to stay @ $1500 or less with lightweight flywheel included.
Just purchased fast 102 intake fast 102 throttle body fast fuel rails and a 150 shot of nitrous along with a volant cold air intake. I will be putting down over 500rwhp with the spray and 450ish without it. What do y'all think
Current mods.... PRC 227cc Heads, Tsunami Cam .654/.609 235/240 111 LSA, Mellings High performance oil pump, LS7 lifters, LS2 Timing chain, Texas Speed pushrods, racetronix 42# fuel injectors, comp cams trunian rocker arm upgrade, Kooks 1 7/8 headers, NO CATS, DMH electonic cutouts right after headers, B&M short throw shifter, Rick @ Synergy Motorsports dyno tune 420rwhp

So...do you expect 30ish HP out of the Fast 102/TB? I've heard nothing but good things about the McLeod's, and nothing but bad things about Monster Stage 3 and up.

Agree - several folks on this forum have tried the Monster Stage 3 and have since replaced them because of extreme chatter and/or high rpm shifting problems.

Are you aware of the group buy I'm organizing for the McLeod RXT? < $800.

I'm thinking 30 horsepower because of my heads and cam. Figure my heads and cam will be less restricted. Is 30hp realistic from intake throttle body and cai?

You'll get 20 RWHP if your CAI is excellent and your LS6 intake was unmodified.

Still waiting for pricing on the kit with the steel and aluminum flywheel. We're probably a week or two out before I start taking names.

My ls6 intake was stock. With the fast 102 with matching 102 throttle body andwith a cold air intake I hope 30hp is reasonable. That's an expensive price for only 30 horses but 450hp sounds much better. The average price for a fast 102, fast 102 tb, and the fast fuel rails is in the $1800 range from what ive found. Thats damn near $100 per horsepower if I only get 20hp... That ain't sounding too good
I'm wanting to buy the clutch this week (like yesterday lol) if possible cause I deploy this month. Is there a way that I can pre pay or preorder mine?

Also I'm thinking I wanna get ahold of this Pat G guy and get a cam spec'd for my setup cause I think it might be a better performer than my current Tsunami Cam .654/.609 235/240 111 LSA from what I've read about his custom grind cams. Wonder what specs he will set me up with. How do I get ahold of him?
