    Clutch is rated to power (torque) output...where will your car fall?

    You didn't answer my original question, so no one can answer yours...

    As I said, a clutch is based on torque capacity, so without knowing what we're looking at, we can't help you...

    If you "know" the hp, you should "know" the torque.

    Where do you see yourself going with the car? If you don't ever plan on going beyond a pump gas tune on the stock turbo, you should stick to a stock (or OE replacement) clutch.

    I already mentioned this, but based on where you are at right now (stage 1 tp tune), you are no where near the torque that would require anything stronger than an OEM clutch. I honestly think you would regret going with a really heavy clutch at this point, as it would take away from your daily driving experience. If you are planning a big build later down the road, I would just put in a stronger clutch when you 'need it. As you know a large component of the cost will be labor, unless you do the work yourself. When you are doing your turbo replacement (and all the other supporting parts), I would do the clutch to match the power needs then. Your tuner will be able to give you an idea of the torque you will be making based on the mods he will be tuning your car for.

    However, you seem to be very intent on getting a stage 2 clutch, so if that is truly what you want to do then go for it
