Clutch question?

What is the max HP and torque numbers that the stock clutch can handle?
I am turboing my car and am curious if 250 hp would be fine on the stock?

also what other legit clutches are out there besides ACT that are 6 puck and and can handle lots of HP?

I am easy on my tranny and clutch, no dragstrip launches or banging gears hard, but I do drive hard at every opportunity. 50,000 on the car with 40,000 turbo on the stock clutch and trans.
Something else to think about, I do have back up vehicles. :)

What can be worse is having too much credit!
There is one other thing. I seem to remember pretty bad wheel hop before I put on coilovers. That could destroy the differential quick when you have enough power to break the tires loose easily.
