Which clutch?

I'm needing a new clutch, I can slip mine at will on my hot street setting, higher chip levels are useless. My current clutch only had about 5k on it but its just a stock replacement. I have no clue what my HP is but my mods are in my sig. What clutch should I go with Hp rating wise?

You should be about 300hp with the limiting factor being mechanical fuel and lack of intercooler.

should I go with southbends
1944-5OK - 94-98, 350 hp, 750 ft lbs of torque
or their
1944-5OFEK - 94-98, 450 hp, 900 ft lbs of torque
From what I have read it should match you Hp rating and their web site says too big is just as bad as too small. I plan on adding e-fuel and a intercooler but that shouldn't raise my hp.

it might bump it a little, but not alot. and it depends if you plan on going bigger. i will need to replace my clutch at some point because i went too small, but maybe i can get another 40k out of it. also LUK and Valair make SMF clutches that might be more inline with what you want.

it has a relatively new luk clutch in it now, it was fine for stock but it won't hold the new found power.

LUK, Valair, and SB all make clutches that will do what you want them too. Dual Disc clutches are very aggressive the SB one i run is not, i would like to try the next step up i think that would be a good compromise for me. you would probably be happy with the same one i am currently running so long as you're not planning on upping the power

Yea I think the 350hp one is the one I'm going to get. I've heard nothing but good things about it. I just hate having to replace a new clutch.
