personally id stick to std clutch for 400 bhp and then exedy twin if you want something for more power or heavy launches.

any uprated single plate going to have a stronger cover and give a heavy pedal

Helix organic.
Lovely feel, handles 400 easy and not too expensive either. It's a win win win as far as I'm concerned.

RTS fitted to my ix. Nice clutch no complaints. Feels slightly lighter than standard and good for up to 440 lbs/ft if i remember correctly. Think there's a couple of threads on here with people having fitted them.

Apologies, this won't be much help to you... First time I bought a Helix was from NR Autosport when Nick was still trading. That was on my previous Evo IX and was the last clutch I fitted. Now, since I bought my current Evo VI, I've bought one in a private sale. Getting it fitted on 26 Jul.

I've got the Performance Organic 3 piece kit (440 lbs/ft), The other oe spec clutch is only rated to 340 lbs/ft. But i went for the standard OE spec flywheel not the lightened one that is an option with the kit shown. OE spec might cost slightly more. Think i got mine from Ross Sport. Think Indigo GT sell them too.
