Exedy, I pretty much swear by that brand. For your needs you'd be fine with a Stage 1. As long as your break it in right you will be more than fine.
I ran an Exedy OEM replacement on my 240sx a few years back and I ragged and beat on that clutch like no other, never got over heated and slipped. I also had the rear diff welded. But I ran that clutch for 40k miles. Constant abuse every day, and after I sold the car the new owner learned to drive on it and got another 20k out of it before it began to slip a bit.
My friend with an FD ran a Stage 1 on his single turbo setup and he will not buy another brand. He just finished installing his Hyper Single Clutch kit. Car isn't running yet but he's excited.
Well I wouldn't go above a stage 1 then. After that you get into the 3 and 6 pucks which are much stiffer and are rough to engage. Here's a really good video that explains the main componments and clutch functions.
A friend of mine with a turbo tc is putting around those same numbers and is usint the act street clutch. Im putting around 235whp and im going to be running the same clutch. I don't think the exedy stage 1 will be sufficient for 275 but its up to you
Competition Clutch, Purchase it from Dezod. End of story.
x2. i'm running a competition clutch stage 3. it's stiff but easy to engage. i honestly like it better than the stock clutch; it's smoother because you can actually feel the point of engagement. it's rated for about 375whp, too, so you could beat on it with 275whp without worries.
