98 gt man trans problems

ok the car has a stage 4 zoom clutch its been in 4 a year and it has given me nothing but trouble. wen the clutch was first put in it broke the stock intake manifold the first time i put the pedal to the floor after i fixed the manifold it felt like first gear the clutch was just slipping through now ive added more mods and 3.73 and it feels like the clutch slips through first and 2nd, the tires barely spin and personally i think a 98 gt with 3.73 shuld be able to smoke the tires all the way through first no problem but mine cant, and just recently wen i chirp 2nd it sounds like the tranny is trying to cum through the floor, I need help please, do u think replacing the clutch will fix it? any suggestions?

1998 GT full bolt on, HP: unknown ET:14.3 @ 97mph

A stage 4 clutch is not for the street. You have a way too aggressive clutch in there and it won't last on the street. If its been in a year, best guess is it's toast, and I'm surprised it made it that long. You need to use the right clutch for what you have, and a stage 4 is for racing, ie it is NOT for the street in any power range. They are made to launch hard and engage quickly, they will burn up under regular driving in no time. IMO zoom clutches suck to begin with, but any brand clutch that claims to be a stage 4 or other type BS is not for the street. You can try adjusting the cable and looking inside, but if its slipping I would think its going bye-bye.
