help me with clutch choice

my clutch started slipping so im looking for a new clutch.

this is the background info regarding the clutch i need:
1.) car is sohc
2.) car is basically stock right now(intake/exhaust)
3.) planning on turboing the ka in the future (planning on approx 200-250hp AT MOST...aka shooting for minor power gain...250hp is probably an overstatement)
4.) car is used for occational drifting and daily driving


The biggest factors in consideration is price and the ability to last long.

Im considering the exedy OE clutch or the ebay clutches.

Would the exedy OE replacement clutch be enough for my plans (especially the turbo) or am i forced to dish out more money for a stage 1 (or higher)? And how much hp can the OE clutch withstand?

Im hearing mixed reviews for the ebay clutches, so wats ur opinion on them, wat "brand" should i get, and wat stage should i get? ...if the ebay clutches are good enough, i would prefer to go this route cause of the price

i wouldnt ebay nething that is mechanical or internal on my car, as for how strong of one you should go, stg 2 would be the safest route if you are going to be boosting and drifting a little bit....stage 1 would work fine as long as your not beating the **** out of it, im currently running an exedy stg1 and have about 300hp, its holding pretty well and i autox/drift, but i dont really ever clutch kick or launch the car hard or nething, i will be going stg2 next time though so that its a little stronger...stg2 is usually only like 30-50 bucks more, worth it in my opinion
