Save a few more dollars and get an FM clutch.

I recommend the FM clutch, I have it. Drives like stock. Also I'm pretty sure I saw postings from Keith mentioning that FM deletes the oil squirters on their builds, so if you don't have them it shouldn't be an issue. Unless you're shooting to be "SAFlora". Just kidding, Min

I would/did choose a BEGi mani
I recommend a FM stage 1 clutch [it handles my 275 whp and drives like stock]
it's all chatter-talk until you start twisting bolts

I wish that other NOOB who claims to run a "budget" setup with a MSD timing RETARD box would read this thread...

Might I add - Abe did an amazing job with my Taco clone - and yes, I'm proud to say I have the 1st Taco clone he made (I sent him the POS cracked taco I had to clone it). That and TSE's inconel kit with stage 8 fasteners = win.

GeneSplicer I like the taco clone from really Abe allot...but cast seems to be the way.....

Regarding the twisting of bolts..
I stripped the complete interior....its being custom upholstered and carbon fibred as we speak..

The motor is out and being stripped..awaiting forged rods,bearings etc...

Will start a my own WD-40(or as it is called locally GHOST ****) and pipe wrench thread soon so you can laugh your asses of for the AFRICAN INGINUITY....

Getting real mixed feedback on the clutch still...$$$$$ is a problem especially this side of civilization and still pondering like a retard about the manifold...but leaning towards a FM mani....

thanks for all your help so far!
