possibly needing a clutch kit.. but which one?

Well I was getting ready to upgrade my dying injectors first along with HPOP and turbo and wait to replace the clutch when it gave out but I think it will be the other way around now.

Bought the truck at 150K miles and now has 205K and from my knowledge it still has the original clutch. Yesterday when I was driving along like normal I noticed the clutch pedal had a gritty/vibrating feel to it when I pressed it in and out. When the truck is off the pedal moves smoothly like it used to. when the truck is running there is no abnormal noise but it seems like the clutch disengages earlier than before. when the pedal is let out fully there is no vibration. Weird thing is that it is intermittent, Sometimes pedal feels normal and other times it feels like the pedal has a gritty feel to it.

So the local shop is suspecting the throwout bearing or pressure plate. Either way I will get a kit installed to replace the bearing, plate, and clutch since it has to be done eventually. Does anyone recommend a kit that is an upgrade to the stock? I want one that will handle roughly up to 500HP.

And i dont tow very often, if i do it will be less than 10K. I do travel up and down passes with my 1100 lb RZR in the bed of the truck but thats about it. So I dont expect to need to go as high as the dual plate kits. The shop quoted me 1100$ for out the door parts, resurfacing, and labor for a stock replacement.
