I have a South bend 550 HP clutch in mine and I love it. The pedal is a softer and I've only spun it once. Once was a 3rd gear hole shot. It spun but the 2nd I let out it grabbed.

Also as Raul said check out Valair, they are good clutches for less money that SB. South bend is very proud of their clutches I will say but I haven't had any problems either.

I have the valair ceramic clutch, Raul has it listed as NMU70241-06 500HP / 1000 ft lbs Torque. Good clutch in my book and it has been tested......a lot. Its towed a dump truck full of asphalt out of a ditch and up a hill, tons of asphalt equipment, other trucks and a full size bronco thru the mountains in east tennessee and has never once slipped. I would buy another Valair in a heartbeat.
