Welcome, if you plan in keeping it stock you would do well with a stock replacement.

You can probably use the stock clutch up to 300-350 HP/TQ.

Latemodel restoration supply has a great Ram hdx clutch pkg that includes everything down to the flywheel for 339.99. I had a 12 sec h/c/i 94 gt with the same kit and loved it. I suggest getting a new clutch cable with a firewall adjuster as well

3.73s are easily the best upgrade for the money on a 5 spd foxbody.

I have the ram clutch myself,and I cant complain...my car has only bolt on's so it not much more then stock..i have M/T et street radials,and the clutch holds just fine!...though im not sure how long this clutch will last compared to some of the other options..

4.10's will get you a bit quicker acceleration and a little lower gas mileage.
The difference between the 4.10's and 3.73's is minimal.
Choose what you want and go for it.
