OEM clutch kit

Is this the ford OEM clutch kit that I should buy?
I need a new TOB so seeing as I'm in that area I'll put in a new clutch too.

Even less expensive at Rock Auto, especially with their 5% discount code. Two Exedy kits are offered (FMK1011 (10 spline) & FMK1012 (26 spline.)) I'm not sure what input shaft configuration our Bullitts have. Was there possibly a change between 2008 and 2009?

Ok last OEM clutch question, I promise...
I'm about 2 weeks away from my clutch/drivetrain project, I want to do a perfect job, what do I need. Remember I have settled in the less the 400 hp range.

Gary,

Exedy clutch, Exedy lightened flywheel, Ford Racing Stainless clutch hydraulic line, and be sure to replace the clutch hydraulic servo.

I would not buy a lightened flywheel again, and I definitely do not recommend them.

Our motors have relatively small displacement.
Yes a light flywheel helps the motor rev faster, but right off the line (or pulling out from a stoplight) you need the MASS to help you launch without the motor falling on its face.

A stock-weight flywheel helps you get off the line better than a lightened flywheel.
With a lightened flywheel you have the rev the engine more, and slip the clutch more, to get rolling.


Definitely change the TOB/Slave cylinder every time you touch a clutch job.
Also the pilot bearing.

The stainless steel clutch line is a waste of money for a street driven car.

The Exedy 400 clutch is a nice upgrade for a non-power-add car.

FYI-My Bullitt still has the stock clutch with no signs of giving up. I don't race it it, it's a daily driver with a Vortech.
When I used to do clutch jobs at Ford the standard was:OEM parts, pilot bearing,throw out bearing, slave cylinder (if applicable) and recommend new flywheel if it had hot spots, cracks or shudder.
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.

2008 Bullitt 0073,Eibach Sportlines, Ford Racing shocks/struts. Steeda strut mounts with Eibach camber bolts, adjustable panhard bar,SCT tune,Brenspeed NA Detroit Rocker cams,Kooks Long-tube headers with catted x-pipe, Borla Touring AB, Vortech V3 air to air intercooled. BMR Relocation brackets. Ford Racing front control arms. Whiteline rear lowers, Roush short throw, Whiteline bump-steer kit. Steeda UCA. SR Adjustable sway bar links, AM Saleen style 5 spokes. Ford Racing sway bars.

My clutch is kind of ok, it's my TOB that is toast. I have 70,000 miles on my Bullitt so I thought see as I'm in the area I might as well put in all new, same amount of work..

Ah, understand now. Yes, agree, replace/resurface everything you need to while it's apart.

I thought these vehicles came with a more robust clutch design such that they would last longer for those of us who drive like old ladies, no offense to old ladies

To me, "driving like an old lady" always means that you're slipping the clutch in the interest of smooth takeoffs - which is the WORST thing you can do for a clutch.

Hammer that thing; it will thank you. ON or OFF the pedal - anything in between is slipping.
