clutch question

I drive a 68 chevelle SS 396 with a mild modification pushing about 425 hp. I am in the process of replacing my clutch and pressure plate not because it was slipping but because it didn't have any adjustment left and i figured it would be a good winter project. I have owned the car for a little over one year. My clutch measures 10 3/8 and i was thinking of going to a 11 inch clutch. This is when i realized that a 11 inch clutch wouldn't fit on my flywheel. Evidently the drive train was from a small block probable a 327 with a saginaw transmission.
I don,t have the money right now with two kids in college to replace the flywheel, bell housing, clutch, fork and tyranny etc. My question is what 10.5 inch clutch would anyone recommend for approximately 425 lb of torque and horsepower.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year

i have had great luck with Centerforce Dual Friction in some of our 4x4s
which we would beat the snot out of.
im sure there are lots of other guys that can help with suggestions

X2 on the Centerforce Dual Friction that's what i put in my T/A this past summer and i really like it, And it will be in your best interest to at-least have the old flywheel re-surfaced.JMO
