How strong are the stock units? At what point would a person want to replace it? Anybody ever tried adding additional clutches to make it stronger?

It's a weak dog! 50 HP or more over stock will begin taking it's toll with a stick. An auto will take about 100 HP. Not worth beefing up. Aftermarket stuff is much better and more reliable.
