The highest single that they produce is a 550hp and 1100 torque. It is not so much the horsepower but the torue you are going to put out to make these clutches hold and last long. You also have to make sure when you get the clutches to break them in the right way also. You have to let the clutch seat and break in before you put all that power to it. I will Pm you a price on the double disk. Is your input shaft upgraded? You need to upgrade that for the double disk.

I think this is what you need:

550HP South Bend MU13-1.25 Con FE Clutch/Flywheel Upgrade
[MU13-1.25 Con FE]

South Bend Clutch Upgrade for up to 550 HP:
89-2000 5 Speed Trucks Getrag & NV4500.
2000.5-2004 NV5600 6 Speed Std. Output Cummins Diesel
(1.25" input standard input shaft)

Comes with upgraded 13" flywheel, stock is 12.25".

550HP, 1100ft lbs of torque

This Dyna Max kit features a full feramic lining on a marcelled fin. The pressure plate is modified for higher plate load and smoothness of engagement. This clutch was designed to cure premature disk failure due to high horse power and heavy hauling in the 5 speed and early 6 speed non-ETH 12 1/4" clutches. We have taken the 13" ETH clutch and modified it to accept the 1 1/4" input shaft. By doing this, it enabled us to offer a disk center that is 2-3 times larger and stronger then can be provided in the 12 1/4" clutch kits. This kit comes with a flywheel, re-drilled and refaced to accept the larger clutch and is rated to handle up to 550 horsepower & 1100 ft. lbs. of torque. Years 1989-2003 5 speed & 6 speed non-ETH.

Part Number: South Bend Clutch MU13-1.25 Con FE
