Which clutch 2k viggen

My clutch started slipping a month or so ago and its getting pretty bad. And suggestions on what to get?

2k viggen
Standards Stage 3+ Nordic tune with 6cm-18t turbo, t5 cams etc so guessing 240-250whp?

I think I went with genuine saab's stage 1 clutch which hasn't lasted 3 years of easy street driving due to normally hauling my kids around. Any suggestions on what I should get? Try the same clutch again or go back to stock?

I know stock Aero/Viggen clutches hold at least 255whp for years, but I am guessing that with an 18t you'd be making more power?

If not, I'd say OEM.

I doubt I am more then 255whp.... I added the -18t after I purchased the 3+ ecu so I should be around stage 3+ power levels.

Wanted to keep the power levels low to minimize the chances of blowing up the engine

I say stock. I have the same setup except it was road tuned so I speculate that my whp is a tad higher then yours, but I'm not sure. If i recall, my stage 3+ was dynoed at 247/305 and I know my car is faster now with the 18T.

I've had the viggen clutch/PP in my stage 4 ng900 and didn't slip for the ~30k miles I put on it before it was totaled and have about 20k on my current one that has seen only stage 3 and ~5 (19t) power. Haven't had an issue with it yet.

I also don't go out racing, which I am sure you don't. I do to get on it time to time, but will ease into it and it's usually in higher gears.

Based on your driving style, I'd say the stock setup would be fine. The other clutches have better bites for those lower gear high impact accelerations.
