Clutch! What will work!Answers...???

I recently posted about what kind of clutch is the best. I went with a cheaper but more trusted and actually forgot the name. When i took out the old Luk that was in the truck it seamed fine. the spings, clutch, everything was fine and looked hardly used. The flywheel had been "carmalized" and looks like it had been maybe used to pull an enormous load, or i found under the dash a Dfuser Power Module. it is the 85 hp 120trq so i took it out. it hooks up fine now and i guess we'll see how she lasts. Also was wondering if it was the module or just a bad previous owner...?

prolly a little of both ... the extra hp and a bad abusive driver

thats the trouble, i have a super chip in it already and with the high mileage it makes it shift and run alot smoother. i put a Sachs clutch in and had the Luk flywheel turned. it didnt have any hot spots just that caramelized look...
