Borgwarner T5 clutch questions

Ok so i have a custom application for my 1970 Datsun 240z.

I am running a 355 SBC mated to a Borgwarner T5 out of a 1992 Ford Mustang 5.0. This means i have to run a SBC flywheel and a camaro pressure plate but the clutch has to come from a Mustang. I am in the process of upgrading my 355 with aluminum heads and a 292H cam. which should put me at about 400hp/400TQ.

I am currently running a stock mustang 5.0 clutch and a stock camaro pressure plate. I think i need to upgrade my clutch to handle the extar power the motor is going to be putting out and was wondenring:

If i upgrade my clutch to a perofrmace clutch do i also need to upgrade my pressure plate?
