Stock Flywheel With Valair Clutch???

Hey guys, sorry for an easy question, but I can't find any info. I am about to order a Valair clutch to swap in when my stock one lets go. What I am wondering is if I can just get the flywheel resurfaced and put the new clutch in or do I need a new high-performance flywheel to go with the new clutch? Thanks!

Oh and as you can see in my sig, it's the high output engine with the nv5600 and the 13 inch flywheel/clutch
I have all the mods in my sig (150hp injectors and an Edge EZ) and the only other mods I will do in the near future is a super B Special (if you think it's a good turbo) and the clutch. This is the one I am looking at Valair Clutch Kit 01 05 Dodge Cummins 24V NV5600 6 SP | eBay
So would you get a dual disc ceramic or organic? sorry, I'm not too knowledgeable about clutches. I'll call Valair tomorrow, I just wanted to get some idea of what I need first. Thanks a bunch!

EDIT: I just looked a bit at dual discs and this is just about the cheapest one that I found and it is almost 3 times the price of the single. Do you recommend any that are cheaper, or do I just have to spend a lot more? Thanks again. ceramic nmu70nv56ddsn.htm
It all depends on how much power you want to make. If you want 400 HP don't do a dual disc. If you want 500 you should probably start looking for a dual. If you want over 5 you need a dual. But if you are staying in the 400-425 HP range there is no need for a dual. A single will hold up just fine:thumbsup:
So with the upgrades in my sig (150hp injectors and an edge ez) plus a super b special, I won't be over 400, will I? I'd rather stick with a single because of price but if that is too much power, I guess I will need a dual.
Ok, sweet. Thanks so much guys! I don't plan on making any more than 400-450hp in the near future, so I will try to make a single work for me.
