    Well I got my tune and really seemed to up the power. Problem is I now blew a clutch. The pedal goes to the floor and doesn't fully disengage. I can hear it slipping and smell it burning. Can't get it in gear unless I shut the motor off then start it while in gear. Had a fun time getting it to the Ford dealer.

    I'm sure my warranty is void even though I've only got 6000 miles on my 2015 because I've got headers, Electric Exhaust Cutouts, CAI. I did remove the tune and take it back to stock before taking it down. Got any rough idea what this is going to cost me?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't put a stock clutch back in it, McLeod rst.... You just missed a heck of a deal on them over Memorial Day. Your looking at around 750 for the clutch, not sure how bad they will wanna break it off in you on the install

    Ehh you should be able to get it covered from personal experience. I know couple of people that had this exact issue and got it warrantied.

    My clutch disc blew apart at 7500 miles. Only went to the track once and made 2 passes. Blew apart on the street during an aggressive 2-3 shift. I didn't bother with warranty cause I certainly didn't want another stock POS clutch. I went with the exedy flywheel and mach 500 clutch. I plan on staying NA for now and wanted a full face organic clutch that will feel and act like stock. With the stock spring back in place it feels no harder then the stock clutch felt with the steeda spring. So far I love it and have put almost 500 miles on it. The only bitch was the stupid dows you have to press into the flywheel. Let a machine shop do it for you if you dont have a press. I believe I spent about a grand between the clutch, flywheel, new t.o. bearing, and stainless clutch line.

    I tell you I put a Spec Stage 2+ Hybrid in the Gt. Pedal is heavy with no spring, but it hasn't chattered or slipped a bit. Just had the stock flywheel resurfaced, hard to beat for 500 or so. I have had good luck with Specs.

    I have a new RST in classifieds, $625 to your door. Trust me, don't put a Ford clutch back in it, they are crap and you will likely end up in the same situation again.

    The RST is a good clutch that won't fail like the OEM.
