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.
