I have used FRPP Heavy duty and King Cobra, both are pretty good, the King Cobra has a softer pedal feel and grabs ok, both are decent for a daily driver and ocassional 1/4.

On the higher end i have right now a Centerforce dual friction, it rocks, the best of the 3, pedal feel is also lighter, and the higher the RPMS the softer it gets. This is a serious clutch for street and racing.

The stock clutch from an '03 Cobra - which is an FRP part *I think* - will support that power just fine, is liveable day to day, and is available at your Ford dealer. At least, it should be. My 0.02. Good luck, let us know how it goes for you. Jim.

375-415 hp w/ bolt ons. Do you consider nitrous or a blower a bolt on? A stock 97 puts 260+/- to the wheels.
