Question Clutch Recommendation

Hello all, I think my clutch may be going out. My 08 Bullitt is not pulling hard consistently. Is there any other way I can verify that this is the issue? I've been doing some research and I'm not sure what to go with if I do replace the clutch. Mine's more of a weekend driver but I'm not afraid to get on it but I don't feel like I dog it too much. I have full bolt-ons and a tune. I was thinking of going stage 2. I'm not sure if the clutch is stock as I'm the 3rd owner with 75k total miles. She's always been a bit clunky since I got her but I had a mechanic look at it and he said it was good to go. What are your recommendations for stage and brand? Thanks in advance!

There are all kinds of clutches available. I would say Ford Performance or McLeod are two reliable sources. Perhaps some of the other owners can give you cautionary tales about other brands.

I would go either with a McLeod or a Cnterforce Dual Friction clutch. Both are good. Make sure you replace the throwout bearing.

I have an Exedy Mach 400 (mild stage 2) in my 2001 Bullitt and like it. I am not sure about the 08-09 Bullitts though.

I have the Exedy Mach 500 clutch in my 09 with a supercharger. No issues after many miles.

Also upgrade the trans. pilot shaft bearing to the needle type bearing.

Exedy stage 1 or 2 are good street clutches.
