Anyone know the limits of a stock V6 clutch?

Tried searching and the website crashed . Trying to find out if anyone knows what HP/TQ limits are on the stock clutch for a 2013 V6? going to E85 soon and a 80mm TB so i'll be getting near the 305-308RWHP range. Just want to know if I push the engine anymore if i'll need a new higher rated clutch. Shes got 87K miles and drives fine now. Put down 290RWHP on a mustang dyno 2 months ago. Thanks!

If you go Forced Induction , you will need a new clutch..Mine started slipping when I installed the KPE Supercharger ( 375rwhp)

Ahh, I see. thanks for the reply, Maybe i should have been more specific but good information to know nonetheless. I don't plan on going FI as of now (might go with a V8 at that point), but I was curious if I got closer to the 315-320RHWP range if that would put enough stress on the stock clutch/flywheel to require an upgraded one. Or, my third option if i keep this car much longer would be some head work with cams, which i believe puts me in the 340-350rwhp range. I'd assume at that point I would for sure want something that I can abuse as i'd be at V8 HP numbers.

Side question, how strong is the 6speed rear diff/axles? Any other weak points on a 2013 V6 I should be aware of? Thanks!
