Any recommendations for an M6 LFX Clutch upgrade?

I've got to tear open the transmission for another issue, but I figure while I'm there it may be worth it to upgrade the clutch to something nicer. Any recommendations? Or should the stock be OK for pushing more power? I'm looking to add turbos in the future and would rather not have everything upgraded all at once to avoid a huge bill

This is for a v6 not a v8, I believe monster and spec are the only options, price is not bad but you have to get a new fly wheel so your talking 1200 ish. The stock clutch will tap out pretty quick on that setup. Lotta bolt on guys report clutch slippage and they are not close to that kinda power.

Monster hasn't came out with a clutch yet for the V6 variants but they assured us they are working on it. And VROOM is right SPEC has a ton of options for your application but only sell them with the ALUMINUM FLYWHEEL option so any clutch you go with can be a little on the pricey side, but they offer a STAGE 1,2,2+,3, 3+,4, 5 ranging from 340ftlbs all the way up to 649ftlbs for the level 5. Let us know as we are a carrier for SPEC if you want to go that route and we'll see what kind of pricing we can get for you. Either call us mon-fri 8am-6pm est. at 336-719-0599 or shoot us over an email support@tick-performance.com we'd be happy to help you.

I will definitely contact you before doing anything. I think I'm going to hold off on the clutch for a while but definitely on the to-do list
