EPI Clutch kit, which one?

Ok my buddy is making all of his mods at once so I suggested going with the EPI kit instead of the Dalton like I have since it will be a one time set upand he won't be making any more mods. He has an 09 Sport with FI and the mods are going to be MSD ignition, Muzzy exhaust, OD Clutch Cover, Uni Filter and EPI Clutch kit.
My question to you that have them is What springs come with the EPI Sport kit for 27" tires and the mods listed above? Second question is the same but for those with the Sand Duner EPI kit for 27"+ tires and mods above, what springs come with it? Do you like it and the way it engages?
We ride on a sandy river 60% of the time, dunes 20% and street 20% of the time. Which kit would work best without to much stall?
I have a Dalton set up with the Almond Spring and no extra weights and like the way it engages much better than the orange/blue spring. Looking for the closest to this set up in a EPI.
Thanks!

My main concern would be belt heat with the EPI weights compared to the dalton and the ability to adjust as needed in the future.

According to Dale he wanted to short cut the Teryx kit and use Brute weights but said the belt temps were too high which would lead to shorter belt life.

IMO... I would use the v force john clutch mod. I have had clutch kits and they wouldn't hold up. I went with the vforce john and haven't had any more problems... again JMO

Not sure on the holding up part but have heard good things about the VFJ set up but if you do engine mods you will still have to have the clutch kit with the VFJ and this comes straight from John.

FYI, your buddy just bought the Dalton

Josh is my buddy. He went with Dalton after speaking with Todd. I told him how good of customer service you have there. I have Dalton as well, but thought since he doesn't tinker with the performance stuff as much as I do, he would be ok with the EPI. We are both salesmen and it's easy to buy from someone who is passionate about what they do. Thanks for Helping my buddy make a good decision Todd!
Todd with the mods (MSD, Uni Filter, Muzzy) and he has 26" Maxxis Cerros tires, which rivets and how many grub screws do you recommend? I have no weight in my Dalton since I am running the Fundy Std Bore.

Thanks for sending him to us. this is my favorite kind of customer
