flywheel and clutch recommendations

Im looking for a flywheel and clutch for a 99 4.6 2v mustang. Car will be turbocharged and producing 400+ hp at the tires. Looking for a strong street/strip clutch. Oh and made in the usa. I have a few brands and setups in mind, any suggestions?

RAM HDX or RAM Powergrip. Then a Ram Billet Aluminum flywheel.

Resurface your stock flywheel, a King Cobra clutch kit will be good for as much as the stock rotating assy can handle. A "gotcha" for 99/00 cars is that they had 8 bolt flywheels vs 6 bolt for every other GT so there is that. Luckily the Cobras and 5 spd Machs with the forged cranks were also 8 bolt so if you need to buy a new one they are around.

The 8 bolts in the 99/00 cars are still cast, not forged. So no you didn't.
