What clutch

Hey guys, I have another question. Do I need to run a staged clutch on my car if I'm running 200whp? What about 220? I will need to replace my clutch soon so I am just trying to figure out what I need. What is the SVT clutch rated for?

What is different about a stage 1? I believe the clutch I have in the car now is a stage one and it is slipping when I push it in 6th and some other gears. It mostly happens in 6th though.

Abused as in launching it all the time or riding or what? Sorry, I'm not used to this whole boost thing. Hell, this is my first standard car. ..

Hey guys, I'm going to revive this thread. Do you figure I would be okay with an OEM luk clutch kit? I can pick one up for $100 so I figure I might go that route instead if the clutch could handle the horsepower. Thoughts?

RIP
