Be nice to Sean. He is more helpful than you know.

But to answer your question, it depends on your driving style. Some have made it to 75,000 miles plus with no issues. And one person with ~73,000 miles with 15,000 or so supercharged used the stock clutch.

The stock clutch can handle power upgrades per ESS. Guys are running 600 Hp on the stock clutch without slipping.

So if your clutch feels ok, you should be fine. Worse case, if your clutch goes, replace it with the stock clutch and you should be fine. The clutch isn't overly expensive.
