2013 mustang v6 clutch question?

I'm having a procharger put on my car this weekend. I'm wondering how well the clutch is going to hold up. Also is our clutch the same as the v8s? My mods will be procharger at 8psi, one piece DS and catless H pipe. Thanks for the help. I tried looking for the answers without any luck.

The clutch isn't bad for a stocker, SPEC stage 2 is a great replacement for the increased HP.

Much more of an issue on the V6 is the oem dual mass flywheel, it will break before the clutch. SPEC offers a replacement aluminum one that works great.

check out CFM they have nice packaged deals for clutch/flywheel. Spec 2 is rated at 525 ft pounds, which would be plenty for a procharger.

are you using the 11-12 kit?

Im thankful for the help. But I'm not getting the answers to my question. The reason im asking is because i can get a 5.0 flywheel and clutch for cheap. if i just need to replace the flywheel then thats what I will do. No it's for a 2013 it was the first prototype from my understanding. My buddy made good power on it.

I have been trying to research that and I cannot find a solid answer. Considering the aftermarket kits fit both gt/v6 models I would assume you can run a gt clutch and flywheel. As far as power goes, I cannot find any definitive answer on how much it can handle.

If you have some extra cash I would just go aftermarket and play it safe.

The stock clutch will hold the procharged motor, for a while, depending on how you drive it. Some people can eat a stock clutch with a stock motor.

The oem 5.0 clutch isn't worth the cost to swap to it, with so much labor to do the swap it is false economy to not do a good aftermarket clutch while you have it apart.

As was said before, the weak link is the dual mass flywheel. The clutch itself isn't as much of an issue as the DMF. I would play it safe and get the CFM Spec clutch & flywheel. Less rotating mass, 1 piece design, and peace of mind it won't break. One of the members on here with a procharger had it happen to him...there's a YouTube vid of his broken flywheel, just can't remember his name off the top of my head.

Wrxified was the one I was thinking about. I found the video after thinking about it for a while.

I don't think they're interchangeable between the V6/V8, despite the fact that the transmission is the same.

When I was researching replacing my flywheel/clutch, I don't recall finding any that would fit both. They were always listed as one or the other. Maybe it's just the clamping force. I'm not sure.

The flywheel is NOT the same, the clutch is interchangeable.

Flywheels are balanced for application. IE: V6 is NOT the same as V8
