Clutch upgrade before/after mods?

Hi folks. I'm just after a bit of advice please. I've got quite a few mods sitting in my garage waiting to be fitted in the near future ( rrc manifold, fd2 throttle body, tegiwa 4-2-1 exhaust manifold, thermal gaskets) to compliment my gruppe m induction kit and custom exhaust. What I'd like to know is: is it worth upgrading the clutch before/after I've had these mods fitted/car mapped? Or will the stock clutch be up to the job? I've got an 11plate fn2 with 51k on the clock. Thanks, as always, for your input.

If your clutch is showing no signs of needing replacement then I wouldn't bother. Even with the mods mapped I doubt the torque increase would be a concern. I'm sure @musegroove will confirm he hasn't uprated his clutch after similar mods and more.

Cool. Thanks for the reply. My clutch is fine at the moment so I'll leave it alone and put the saved cash towards a hondata and remap. Cheers.

OEM clutch is fine for anything NA. Mine's done about 40k with several trackdays and still going strong
