That really is a good question. Going to do any towing at all? If not, a standard replacement clutch would be fine for a stock car doing street duties. If you plan on towing a bit, consider a heavy duty replacement kit.

I have a PBR / Clutch Industries HD kit in my EB I6 Ghia, the pressure plate is HD but the clutch plate is stock type, so it's not nasty to use. It's actually rather light for the HD clutch. It also tows really well with this clutch.

Get a firewall reinforcement before you put the manual in, so you don't tear the firewall!

Cheers

the firewall only pulls thur when people use a s**t cable. its not gona pull thru if your using a new cable and checking that its moving freely and replacing it once its worn.

There is a couple of guys on here that make them, if you do a search you should turn up a few threads on how to make them & find who makes them.

Cheers

I wouldnt bother with a stock clutch, go for XR for at least.
How do you plan on driving the car?
I've got a 5 puck button clutch in mine, and its fine for everything other than crawling thru city traffic all day every day.
