It depends on what you mean by "stronger". Do you mean "lasts longer"? Or "can handle more torque without slipping"?

It is like asking for "stronger" tires. Hard-as-a-rock cheapo tires can last forever, but skid if you look at a puddle funny. Performance summer tires can stick to the road like glue, but you end up changing them a lot sooner.

I had a AWE Stage 2 that lasted 30K miles.... kind of a disappointment. I believe that SACHS makes an upgraded clutch kit for our cars, but it's prohibitively expensive. When the AWE clutch went, I ended up going back to OE. I've got about 25K miles on the OE clutch now, and I've got a K04 and MTM exhaust on the car with Frank Wetterauer's 1.1 bar chip. The OE clutch seems to be handling the additional torque without any issues. YMMV.
