    OK.. so what do you want it to hold? A stock replacement will hold bolt-on power just fine, or the LT4 clutch from SLP is a slight upgrade, with stock driving characteristics.

    Most people go with SPEC or McCleod at that point. The McCleod street twin is the best unit out there, but it's about 1000$. A SPEC 4 runs about 500-600 or so.

    I've never heard good things about the centerforce. Some people have gotten one of the Ram clutches and had good luck with them. SPEC has mixed reviews, but if you get a Stage 4 or above you're not worrying about springs breaking. The twin disc is the cream of the crop, but expensive. I'd never buy a centerforce from what I've read from owners, but if it works for you, then thats all that matters.

    A SPEC Stage 2 should be just fine for "street" clamping power.
