Clutch with helper spring for 2008 GT?

I drove a 2013 5.0 yesterday and loved the clutch. Anyone know if a similar clutch is available for an '08 GT? I'd love to have a clutch like that -- SOOOOOOO easy to push. Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks! 😀

Go test drive a 2004 or earlier GT or Cobra. You'll appreciate the crap out of the hydraulically assisted clutch in your '08 by the time you're done.

As far as the differences between the clutch related components in your car and a '13, you'll probably have an easier time finding that answer in the S197 section than here.

+1 Socal. I drove my brothers '13 Focus ST and man that clutch pedal is so freaking easy to push in! I got into my car after driving his and could not believe how hard my clutch pedal really was.

OP, I would post in the S197 Tech section also.

My bad, haven't posted in a while and was doing so from my phone -- didn't realize there is no longer a 2005+ 4.6L Tech forum.

I'd delete this thread but don't see a way to do so...
Think I've got my question in the right place now.
