Yeah, I'm aware of the changes to the '14's but the GT500's clutch was really, I mean REALLY, heavy. Caught me off-guard. I was expecting similar to the ol' Bullitt which was by no means a lightweight push but the GT500 would certainly build the ol' left thigh muscles.

Maybe they removed the helper spring?

I dunno. Before I would even consider the car I test drove, I'd want to talk w/the previous owner to find out who did the upgrade work. They did nice work, at least on the surface, but I'd want to know more and the seller doesn't know or have that info.

+1 on changing the clutch.

Personally, I've got a McLeod RXT, and it's great.

I'm buying an 07 and at what HP do I worry about the crank pulley?. It's stock now.

Wowsa, talk about reviving a dead thread.

Bottom line- I can't answer your question, W1ldcat.

By the way, I ended up w/a garage queen, pristinely kept, very low mileage, completely stock '09 GT500 and couldn't be happier. Very, very slowly modding her. It's still got the stock clutch and at almost 25k on the odo, seems to be holding up ok. Even the pedal weight has reduced since I got her.

I kept mine with a smaller pulley and tune. When I upgraded to the Trinity blower the pulley crank was upgraded. It is cheap insurance. Good luck and have fun modding your GT500.

Thanks, it's off right away to Brenspeed to get a 2.6 pulley and all. Still have the GT

It's recommended to replace it with at least a stock 08+ pulley as soon as possible. That boat anchor is nothing but potential problems
