my current setup is a 2016 GT with a Whipple Supercharger and stock whipple tune. just turned over 32,000 miles and on my last time with it out the clutch slipped 3 times within a couple hours driving. This was the first ive experienced this in the car. Should i be concerned? should i replace it? if so.... any recommendations for the s550 clutch that would support 706 HP?

Thanks!

There are tons of awesome choices for your power range if you plan on staying there. Mcleod are super popular in addition to Exedy, as mentioned.

Here is some stuff to browse if you're interested:

How long to push it is sort of dependent on if you're willing to be stranded somewhere possibly. I've had a clutch go and been able to baby it back home, but it might go and leave you somewhere you don't want to be.

Parts and labor gonna be like $1.5k to $2k. Half of that is labor, I would just do it myself tho. I didn't think it was that bad of a job
Would that hold true for a 2019 as well (MT-82 D4)?

Are you currently running that clutch setup? i think based on that product description that should work for me. wondering how it feels compared to stock?
