Max Hp on stock clutch

I am looking at doing some mods to my 7.3 for winter to make it a bit faster for winter. I'd like to do it as cheaply as I can. Basically I was looking at getting a wild man and stage 1s and I'm hoping the stock clutch will hold it along with the hpop being able to keep up. Is this realistic?

Thanks

Good point. About 60,000km ago it was at 60% so I doubt it'll last long with much more Hp anyways. Are most people going southbend or are some using Valair to

Southbend gets my nod. Valair and LUK aren't bad either though.

I'm running a Valiar presently. It's a stock HP replacement cluch, and it's been holding up to stage 1's and a chip, knock on wood. So far...at least.
