V6 clutch kit

What are you guys all going with? Mines starting to slip, but doing some research I can't really find anything but oem...

I believe ram clutches are pretty good however I have no experiance with them myself. I've heard mix reviews on the spec clutch kits. I don't think to many v6ers are using aftermarket clutches. You may even wanna contact monster clutches. They seem like they REALLY wanna out something out for the v6 problem is there's is gunna be too of the line and made to handle high hp which'll cost more $$$ however the stock unit is probably just as pricey. Hopefully more aftermarket clutch owners will chime in soon. But I'd say for the v6 ram is probably the leader.

You may recognize that supercharged v6 too! Might want to send sycraft a pm and ask how his experiance with RAM clutches is going as usual he's the guy to go to.

Can't find spec for the llt platform, don't really wanna spend 1000 on a 900ftlb clutch when my car won't see a third of that lol. The oem just wears out so fast...

It's slightly stiffer than normal, but not bad at all, have had it now for about a year. I like it. My original clutch didn't look all that bad, but it definitely was slipping. Their number is 803 788-6034

I love mine and track it quite often, been holding up great and butter smooth engagement, I had a guy drive my car and love the setup, he is a calibrator at a local shop. I have had mine for over a year, it was the first production unit, Gutterball probably got the second. We both push the limits of the drivetrain and no hint of wear, holding strong. a little noise at times with the clutch pedal depressed, all twin discs do this to some extent. engagement is smooth and consistant

since you get everything, including flywheel, around 1100 I think...
Flywheel is quite a bit lighter too, revs faster...

Awesome that's just what I was hoping to find wen the time comes. Speaking of which at near stock power levels with a little bit of spirited driving how long should the stock clutch last me?

No Idea, I've been boosted since 3K miles..... some as little as 30K some more than 100K. Depends on driving habits..
