Default when to change clutch? (N00b)

Sounds like a rediculous question, but this is my first manual transmission and second car (19yrs old). The car has 88k miles and I've had it for two years. I don't believe it has ever been changed. Should I just keep the stock one until I feel "slippage" or would it be worth while to go ahead and swap it out this summer while i have time to do it myself. I'll do upgraded clutch and lightweight flywheel if thats the case.

thanks for any input. <embarassed>

Well, it depends, do you ant performance or just a daily driver and trying to save money?
It all depends on how you and the person before you drove the car. I.E. slipping the clutch too much, dumping the clutch, those sorts of things.

So it might be a good idea if you want performance, since it apparently has never been changed.

I've got about all the bolt-ons you can get (full exhaust, intake, pulley) so yes I want performance. I'm pretty good on it, but it has seen some track days. I ran a 15.6 in the 1/4. I've seen people with lesser set-ups run 15.2s. I'm thinking I could benifit from a new one.

If you're fine with the stock clutch, just leave it in there till it starts to slip.
