need help! cam or no cam!

hey guys i have a few questions, i drive an 04 m6 gto and all i have done is full exhaust (pacesetter lts, catless mids, spintech mufflers) I can not wait anymore and i want to cam my car, so my question to you is how much power can the stock clutch hold before giving out, and is a cam a good idea or heads? I will later on get a fast 92mm intake monifold and svede intake. I also have 57k miles on this car if that helps thanks guys!

I was able to hold almost 400 on my stock clutch but I've seen others barely hold bolt ons. I also didn't really launch much. Its probally a gamble to be honest.

Cam should def. give you some more power. Clutch should hold up for awhile. How aggressive of a cam are you going with?
