It helps greatly if you don't hold the clutch in all the time for every red light. My old F-150 had 277,000 miles on it. All original clutch parts...

Check for any oil leaks that can be fixed while you're "in there"
I never had problems with a flywheel resurface job. It depends on the quality of the resurface and the experience of the tech.
Interested in how your stock clutch is holding up with the Vortech. I have an 08 Bullitt - about to drop an Edlecbrock SC in it expecting 420 torque / 450 hp~ at wheels and want to stay with stock clutch though I'm at about 130K and it shudders occasionally slips when launching in 1st. I've read till my head hurts of all the different clutches on the market but I have always liked the way the Ford one works. Just don't know how much power it can take (I don't track it)...do you know?
