Dang man. Haha. So a few questions you need to answer first. Do you want a similar clutch feel as stock? As in resistance in pushing the clutch in?
Also you'll want to replace the master cylinder at the same time.
I've always heard good things about exedy and spec. Spec stage 1 and exedy stage 2 if I remember right are closest to our stock clutches in terms of power handling and clutch resistance. Further up the line you go you just increase power handling and how heavy the clutch is. You'll also go from organic compounds on the clutch to ceramic. Ceramic is going to be the best for holding power but those suckers are hard to push in.
Have a friend with a 1986 fox body and I don't remember what brand but they put a ceramic clutch in it. It was terrible! Felt like doing 400lb leg presses at the gym. They can hold a lot of power tho. Somewhere around 750 torque on the exedy 600. The stage 3+ from spec does 800something torque.
So I really wouldn't go past your needed power specially if it is a DD.
