Default What Clutch

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram 3500 HD Turbo Diesel

I had a guy tell me today he got 150 K out of his original Clutch and ever since he can't get 20 k out of after market clutches. He has a performance chip and said that was probably the reason the original went out.

He now has a high performance Zoom clutch that's about shot.

Anyone have any suggestions as to a clutch that will last or why his clutches are failing? He also said it looks like the metal in the pressure plate is the problem getting hot and causing the springs to fail.
