So I recently went in to get my timing belt changed and I was talking to the mechanic a little bit and he said that the stick clutches aren't good for more power than what comes standard in these cars, u was just wondering if that's true. I understand that it is recommended to upgrade the clutch but will I shred the stock one with just a cai, tune and catback?

No, the extra 10hp will not make a difference to the clutch.

Back in the day when the G2 / G3 super chargers were a bit more common, those were adding 70 to 100 more hp on the V6, some of those people still ran the original clutch.
So what you are wanting to do will not phase the original clutch.
