Clutch selection

I posted this in the NA section but I guess it really belongs here. So I have an 87 944 turbo with 68,000 miles.

I may be replacing the clutch. I am also planning to upgrade this engine to get to at least 350 HP. So will a stock clutch handle this much horsepower? What clutches have you put on and why. Looking for some suggestions from clutch experiences.

Thanks for your input.

Pull your stock clutch out and send it to these guys to re-work:
South Bend Clutch - Dodge clutch kits and Kevlar Pilot Brgs. Dnya Max Clutch Kits for high performance.

I'm running one of their clutches and am completely happy. I've heard of several folks on RL throwing 350+hp at their lowest-level clutch without issue.

I autocross and DE my car with my wife and it's taken a LOT of abuse without any issues.

Did they rebuild what you had or did they send you a new one. I looked on their website they do not show an application for a 944 or a 951.
