Clutch recommendations?

So, I just got my block and heads back from the machine shop. It was bored .020 and everything gone through. I've got 80hp injectors coming and am gonna put a tuner on it. Also have big head and compressor wheel coming. Nothing major, but at 250,000 I'm sure the clutch is not gonna hold. I don't wanna spend a ton of money, but I want something reliable and rated for what I'm doing. A cousin of mine runs centerforce, but I see alot in Google about Southbend. I know it basically comes down to preference, but who's got the best bang for my buck?

Re: Clutch recommendations?

x2 for southbend. I have the con O and it holds my DP 140hp tune well. I dont know how well it will hold bigger injectors, but I think most people on here run the OFE. The pedal pressure with a SB should be reduced over the stock clutch too.

Re: Clutch recommendations?

Southbend Con O here. I think they are good to 350 rwhp. So if you plan on going past that, you will likely have to step up.

Re: Clutch recommendations?

So, is anybody running anything besides SB? just curious, want to get as much feedback as possible. By my best estimations I'll be turning about 500, so the con fe is my best bet?
