Clutch Replacement

I burnt the clutch on my solstice, yup all my fault. Its driven hard and brake boosting and power sliding everywhere killed it, the extra power from the tune didn't help either.. I haven't driven it in a while, its my only car but I work overseas so I spend weeks without needing it at a time. Also makes it impossible for me to do the transmission job myself. Regardless this car is a completely different monster in complicated than the cars I have built and worked on before.

Does anybody know how much a gm dealer would charge to drop a clutch in there, or a shop that visits this place in the New England area can give me a quote? I will be buying a clutch and flywheel when I get back most likely from a vendor here. I am going to push up the power some more, I am chasing 400 torque so I have to do some research on what clutch will hold the torque.

Any info appreciated,
I know someone that has a shop but he dislikes working on US cars and I know for a fact he has never worked on a rwd sport car layout before, He is a big in the FWD drag racing and those are the cars he builds. Worse case scenario I can leave it at his shop.

At flaxenfilly23, interesting comment on spec PR, And I agree, they also sent me a wrong piece for my clutch replacement (for a different vehicle) and they were not helpful at all, but my vendor stepped up at least, but I have to say I am happy with the clutch performance.
At Cev93, I would agree with Rob and go aftermarket, and for the way it sounds you drive in my opinion I would go with a stage 3 or 3+. Also just my opinion I would go with a new flywheel, you just don't know what shape your OEM flywheel is in, and if it's not bad you can still get it machined for a backup, for your next swap, or sell it, or whatever.Especially if you are going to do it yourself(which is what I would do), having new parts there will cut down on your re-install time. anyway, let us know what you do, and of course good luck!
