New Tunes= New Clutch

Installed my new tunes from PHP and they really sound good but I have not been able to really get on it because my Valair clutch cannot keep up. I order a new clucth about a year ago, I thought I order the clutch that is rated for 400hp but I guess I order just the stock replacement which has done great prior to the tunes. Will the 400hp rated clutch be good for my truck? I know it would be pretty hard to get around 400 hp on my truck but the way Im going I dont think Im stopping anytime soon.

Id get the next one up. Gotta keep in mind you are probably at say 300 to 350 rwhp which means your crank HP is well above 400
