I got my turbo kit put on last week..Finally!! lol...but while tuning it the shop came across a problem. My car was making too much power for my clutch!! I have an Exedy stage 1 w/ fidanza flywheel combo. What are these clutches rated at..power wise? They had to lower my boost down to 5psi and i still cant get on it out of first gear ..it slips. I would like to run 8-10lbs of boost. What clutch would be better for my setup. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

PS...currently 198 whp
192 lb/tq

your car was stock 5 spd right? a break in period would help burn off the protecing coating of the clutch disc. you could always get a 6 puck unsprung clutch and never slip again, lol
