Ya your stock clutch will be fine. When you go FI that's when you start thinking about upgrading the clutch to hold the power

Well it's really up to you. Lol. If its not slipping or anything then I would just keep it until it goes and with the addition of longtubes it should still Hold the power fine. Or if you just want a nicer new clutch then go ahead and buy one. Cuz with 93k and not being too easy on it I would imagine its pretty worn.

I don't know off the top of my head but I'm pretty sure they handle close to 400 rwhp. Anything over that and they start to slip especially if your beatin on the car

Check out Exedy, they almost always have the HP ratings on all of their clutches. Might as well order a whole kit with a flywheel too. that way you wont have to open it up again anytime soon.

You should change out those motha thumps for either some Brenspeed Detroit Rocker cams(+40 hp) or FRPP Hot Rod cams(+30 hp) The motha thumps just make it sound good, these others do the same and will go great with your mods, plus increase your power. Just a thought.

Agreed! Or a nice custom grind cam would be nice

That isn't a low dyno. You're good. Long tubes would really let the cams roar and you'd see closer to 340.

And stock clutch is plenty beefy.
