Better clutch, thats not a south bend?

Alright heres the deal, got a 00 with a 6 speed, intake, exhaust, and unplugged wastegate. the thing goes dang good and nails 22# of boost every time I ask it to, problem is it will definately push throught the clutch in the higher gears when empty, throw a trailer behind it.. dont go over half throttle, you just spin the clutch. I am looking for a good upgraded replacement, I will be getting a 6 pos flip chip as soon as the truck is paid for, right now, only functional mods. I am looking for a clutch that can hold a 140 or so extra ponies so when I throw a new clutch in I dont just fry it again in a month. In reality im pretty nice to the thing, I have my old chevy to thrash on and play, so I just need something I can put it to the floor and actually accelerate.

any thoughts on what to go with? south bends are just to much $$, I know there has to be something out there that is a little more reasonable.

I personally have a south bend and couldnt ask for a better holding clutch... but yeah, Valairs are a little more mildly priced and there are lots of people that love them.

seen some stuff on valair.. and luk.. also realized I should check out the oil leak that seems to be dumping out by the dust cover on the bellhousing... might just be getting some oil of the motor on it.. I will check this all out before I start spending some serious $$
