Which clutch is better?

I got a 99 f250 with the 7.3, i just put the GDS ballbuster turbo and 6.0 intercooler on it and i already had the diablo predator power chip, i was wondering which clutch is better the ZOOM clutch or the south bend clutch. i can get a better deal on the zoom but i want something that is gonna last? And another quick q how hot should my egts be in the exhaust manifold, or how hot is too hot? Thanks ahead for the imput.

EGT's - cruising around 500-800 is completely normal. You don't want to stay about 1250* for too long though. You can cruise at 1200 all day though like when pulling a trailer up a hill.

Ok thanks for the imput guys, on the subject of the egts, when i take off hard like wide open, the egts could go way past 1250, how can i keep them low other than not taking off wide open or is that pretty much it. i have the coated up pipes to the turbo so that will help a lil bit. but i was just wonderin how hot would be to hot (estimate).

Better tuning and make sure your intake and exhaust are open and free flowing.
