Where should I pickup a clutch kit from for my 5 speed convo? I dont need anything heavy duty or anything because the engine mods are going to be minimal. I dont want it to cost me an arm and a leg either.

You could get an RPM clutch, available from Repco or other parts outlets. They are pretty good for the money.

I got my clutch from repco for $200. But I get good discount there though. They work good, no slip. I also reroute the clutch cable so they have a smoother path to the bellhousing, for smoother operation.

up to you mate but the clutch in it is a extreem heay duty and had a nice feel and was still grabbing fine when you took it but your call mate. depends if you want to pull the box out if your not happy. if you going to buy a new one dont get standard as i prob wont last you long.
