I guess I'm too late but I would have recommended the standard Luk OE replacement clutch. I just replaced my OE (made by Luk) clutch last weekend and with over 167,000 HARD miles including having been smoked many times, it was still in excellent condition with many more miles left on it. I only changed it because of an upcoming run to Sledgehammer that is notoriously tough and changing a clutch there would have been a nightmare. With over 167,000 hard miles on it, I thought it was living on borrowed time but it wasn't.

CenterForce advertises heavily and has many fooled into thinking it's just a very heavy duty clutch but it's actually designed for racing where high RPMs rule. Yes it works but it costs nearly double what the Luk clutch costs and it gives no benefit over the Luk.
