@Raul i dont thin i will ever run over 550, the current tune is a 160hp tune i believe.....

@Texas they are rated as to how much HP they can handle


thanks all!!

Yeah i did some reading on South Bends website, i just need to figure out how much HP im running. I think my race file is 160hp....but they say your clutch needs to be matched as close as possible, but what if you switch to a tow tune that is 100hp less??

I just put in a Valair HD. Its a bit noisier but it holds really well. My mech told me that my stocker had basically exploded and I was metal on metal. Surprising to me because it didn't slip at all until TW's street and extreme settings

I asked because the correct holding capacity of a clutch should be measured by it's torque rating.
The gas world does it. I guess the diesel world wants to be different.

I just called Valair and they said they don't make a clutch for the 6.0 that will hold 500hp.
