the srt 2.75 kit puts down like 450+ whp if im not mistaken. assuming you run your car at that, you will need a different tranny, so the stock clutch and flywheel will not do at all. flywheel and clutch selection will depend on what tranny you go with and how much you let the kit put down. ill let someone with a bit more expertise chime in.

No the stock clutch certainly will not handle 450hp, but then neither will the stock 5-speed. We usually recommend keeping the hp to around 350 with that trans (~9psi) But even then the stock clutch will not hold. We typically recommend the RPS Max clutch for this application with the lightweight flywheel.

i hav talked to srt before through pm and they recommended the same to me, rps clutch and pressure plate.. i just made the mistake of using an oem throwout bearing because now i have chirp of death.... also you can not re surface the flywheel you would either need a new one or a lightweight one.
