If your car is nasp, mine would be similar bhp. I was using a standard valeo mi16 clutch, it didn't slip. 

I'm only swapping it out for another standard mi16 clutch as a few fingers have collapsed. It must have been 12 years old though.

Yes forgot to mention it’s n/a so will be sub 200lbft torque I would  expect 

 

welsh is there any benifit on push or pull? As I have the parts to run either

The standard valeo handles the torque fine, it just doesn't like high rpm downshifts. That's when the straps will self destruct.

Are you using the helix cover as well or just the pressure plate?
