    PI motor, vortech v2, and built trans are going in soon. The Exedy stage 1 clutch says it's good for 430 torque, and I've read great reviews on that clutch, plus it is very affordable. Should that clutch be sufficient for about 400whp or should I look for something stronger?

    I have this one in my car. http://www.exedyusa.com/oe/Clutch_Specifications
    I'm really surprised at how easy it is to drive with. Nice easy pedal pressure. I think that's the same one you're looking at. The stage 2 is supposed to be just as nice from what I understand.

    I run a RAM HDX. It supports up to 430 hp. I just built my motor and may have a little under 400ish. Clutch is super strong and has a great pedal feel.
