The folks on the Corvette boards are into something new...

The 06 Z06 Clutch and Flywheel on C5 and C6s.

Anyone know if this will work with the Katech / TPIS spacer?

This may be the way to go.

There are better options. I've talked to South Bend about making a DXD clutch for the CTS-V. We may actually use it in a staged upgrade package I'm working on for the CTS-V. It is an amazing clutch. I've put mine through hell and it performs very well. Its a bit expensive but very worth it and their customer service is second-to-none on clutches. I should seriously get paid to promote them because I do it all the time.


I don't think anybody has ever tried the spacer with the Corvette clutch. You'd be venturing into uncharted territory.

the ls7 clutch can be had for 348.00 and will probably suffice for 90% on the people on this bord, that is what i will probably go with. besides I have had aftermarket clutches that were not ballanced properly and gave me a vibration that drove me nuts. If GM makes a factory part that will work I am more inclined to go with it. I am sure the clutch Katech is talking about will work but I like the stock part at a good price.

I understand you need to mate the LS7 with the LS2/LS7 Flywheel assembly. I understand a board supporter on the Corvette board is offering the package for $525 Shipped. Perhaps one of our Cadillac Forum supporters could offer a similar package??

Hard to beat $525 for a clutch and flywheel that GM gives 3 year warranty behind a 505 HP motor.

Are people having problems with our stock clutch in 'normal' driving, or is this a mod mainly for the autocross people?

I've had very good luck with my stock clutch, as I am running 100% stock right now.

When I modded my 04 GTO and went to the strip on Drag Radials...the stock (Same as C5 Z06 Clutch) went up in smoke. Not very fun when you are pushing 400 rwhp and can't get the car moving.

I figure heavier Caddy pushing same or more planned HP will do the same. Not to mention the Caddy is straddled with this clunky/heavy flywheel setup.

Should the LS7 gear fit, I'm going to get divorced....a GM built way to swap out the dual-mass flywheel and add some clutch beef???? Hell Yeah!!!!!

I hate that dual-mass so much I make myself sick thinking of the torture I'd inflict on the engineer...
