Dual disc

My stock clutch is dying, along with slave. I'll get a Southend HD upgrade, my question is I plan to run 7x9's and a s258
With QaudZilla v2. How much could I push a new oem clutch with 1 3/8" upgrade? Or am I better off getting a valair/ South bend dual disc and not even giving a oem a 2nd thought.
My hx35 kicked the bucket Monday, found a rebuilt s258 that will work and is a mild upgrade.

i have a used cartridge for that hx35 out of a 94 that is in decent shape. i replaced it thinking it was bad but found out it was my bottom turbo that was bad and not the top. id sell it for a hundred if that helps.

id go dual after market, its best to have as solid a connection as possible between engine and trans.

That's alright. This s200 is an upgrade over the stocker anyhow.
I don't want to pay someone twice to get into my trans, but if it was possible to get 30-50k miles out of a new oem clutch with 250-300hp at the tire, It'd be worth it.

You’d be closer to or over 400whp with that setup. You wouldn’t have to go dual disc but I wouldn’t put a stock clutch back in it.

I'll be trying to tune it with no smoke, good mpg, / everyday tow tune.
I'm only looking for 250-300.
I'm not opposed to going dual disc right out the gate. Just curious if the stock or HD stock is worth my time at all. If it's not that's alright.

No worries, a dual disc was in the future plans anyhow. Good to know in advance.
Appreciate the input fellas.

Why dual disc and all the clatter.?
You are not going to be driving enough to justify dual disc.
SouthBend dualFriction single disc is plenty, and dont sounds like your trans is rattling apart at every red light

I use my truck everyday. I can change the oil once a week on it. It's a Cummins. It's a work truck, starts everyday no matter what, and pulls no matter what. It will get more then enough miles. I do appreciate it though.

They make them now so they don't rattle. Just be sure what you buying is a quiet version or you'll have a cement mixer on your hands.

Topping of the Synchromesh fluid through the top of the shifter will quiet down the roll-over too.

I recommend @Dude's Diesel Performance for your clutch needs. I'll be ordering from them when the time comes to get my dual disc.
