Well how many PSI of boost of HP can the stock clutch take before singing its last song. The current stock one has 21000 miles on it

I don't know the specs, but I do know that a clutch would be rated according to how much [i]TORQUE[i/] it can take, not boost or horsepower. Excessive torsional force is what causes clutches to slip in crazy boost conditions, not horsepower. And different amounts of boost will net a different amount of power and torque on a different turbo setup, so that's a moot question.

Anybody?

yes, I do realize that, stupid me. I guess the real question is how much TQ will be made on a stock engine with ~4-5PSI on it. Then the question after that is will the stock clutch hold the increased torque
