I have a daily driver 01 Bullitt. It has light weight flywheel, alum. drive shaft, alum. steeda control arms, steeda adj. clutch quad, Diablo 93 tune, bassani cats, etc.

I want a durable clutch that will give me good performance over stock and many miles.

Any suggestions would be helpful. I thought about doing the ford racing set up, but wanted to get some opinions first.

Thanks

This is the clutch I just put in my '92 LX:

So far I really like it. It actually has a lighter and smoother pedal feel than stock. If you plan to track the car at all with sticky tires you might need something a little beefer than this. But if it's just a street car this will hold up great.

i have a centerforce dual friction and its real smooth
x2 on set up in my sig. Was used by a budy before me and he had a 450+hp cobra. Feels soft like a Honda till you spin up the RPMs.

McLeod makes a good clutch too, but more pedal pressure.

Make sure you're using a stock cable and not the adjustable ones. Those cables seem to make the effort needed to push the clutch in much harder for some reason.

I agree on using a stock cable. The adjustables are also more prone to snapping. I would also highly recommend you get a steel TO bearing retainer. The stock aluminum ones become pitted over time and it can lead to snapping clutch cables (i've had this happen on two different Mustangs). The bearing retainer is easy to swap. Here's the one I got:
