Clutch for a 2006 Mustang GT

So my friend just bought a 2006 GT mustang with 50,000 miles and some minor mods. My friend wants to upgrade the clutch for when he puts some nitrous on the car, along with some other stuff so it wont slip at all. he has done some research on clutches but doesnt know what one to go with. the first one he is looking at is the fidanza 4.3 and the other is the centerforce dual friction clutch. he is looking for something that will hold 5xx rwhp. Any expirence you guys have with these clutches will be great and anything else to go with the clutch upgrade will be great to hear also.

I like SPEC clutches. I wouldn't put a Centerforce clutch in my car if it were free!

I'm running the Roush P51 clutch. Silky smooth and it can easily handle 500+ rwhp.

If he's going to be spraying enough nitrous to acheive 5xx rwhp then he has way more to worry about than the clutch. Actually that's the last thing I would worry about with a manual transmission and nitrous.

If they play, I spray.

I run the P51 Roush clutch. Feels like stock and was JDM recommended. Holds my est 430rwhp fine. But ALOT of guys are running SPEC clutches and like them too. The SPEC would be cheaper as with the P51 you will need a new stock flywheel, new stock pressure plate since you have so many miles already. unless you can get those pieces really cheap the SPEC will be cheaper.

You'll need a new FW with a SPEC clutch too.
