Default FM1 clutch OK for ~350whp?

Motor getting built, goal is around 350whp.... which I suspect will be around 320wtq. I have FM1 clutch, which is rated at 320ftlb.... I feel like I should probably take this opportunity while everything is out to upgrade to FM2 at least. Thoughts? Only like 3k miles on FM1. Anyone running FM1 for extended period of time in the 300 ish torque range? I searched some, but my interweb is painfully slow for the time being, hard to scan a ton of threads. Thanks!

320wtq is more than that at the crank. I'd swap it while it's easy.

thanks for quick reply. Yeah...definitely the right thing to do. Feel like I'm throwing more and more money into it, but I suppose in the long run this will save lots of time/headaches.

FM2 rated to around 360 I think off the top of my head, should be good for whatever 2871 can pump out.

I am running an FM2 and hopefully one of these days I can get on a dyno and max it out. I am really hoping that it will hold 350hp-400hp at the wheels on my 2871. We shall see, if not I guess I will turn down the boost and save up for a twin-disk.
