Default Rolling road set up at interpro Bristol

Hi all just had my cossie 4x4 set up today at interpro in Bristol very good managed to get 365bhp and the same in torque at 22psi had to leave the boost there due to the clutch spitting it's dummy out I'm ment to be running 32psi and getting over 400bhp what clutches do people on here run for that type of power and any recommendations thanks all Steve

Ran an AP 6 paddle with a heavy duty pressure plate on my 450 bhp 4x4 with no issues at all.

A lot of people don't like paddle clutches as they can be a bit on/off and juddery but mine was really good, no drama at all.

Go for a 6 paddle rather than a 4 paddle as they are nicer to use.

Run the same clutch now mine is 2wd.
