Good judgement comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Go with the Autolite 764's they are perfect for these engines.

The Brute Power clutch package was the first replacement clutch I had installed in my car. The clutch engangement was a lot tamer than I would have preferred, and it would slip by the time I reached 3rd gear whenever I was at the track. The clutch disc itself collapsed upon itself after about 7,000 miles. You will hopefully experience better luck than I did, but I can definitively say that I'll never buy another clutch from Borg Warner again. Instead, I stand firmly behind Star clutches.
