Question Burning clutch smell and slipping

My car is at 85k miles and i bought it used with 2 previous owners at 75K and yesterday my clutch didnt engage correctly at 4th gear, so now i smell this metallic burn so I let it cool overnight. This morning the smell wasnt there, but when i got to work, I could faintly smell it, and as i drove to work, it felt like it was slipping a little in 1st and 3rd mostly and somewhat on 2nd.

So the question is:

Should I think about replacing my clutch?

if so:

Exedy Stage 1 Single Plate Organic Clutch?


Exedy OEM replacement Organic Clutch?

I dont have much of a power goal. All i want is stage 2 with AP maybe upping the boost to 15psi max. The car is pretty much stock, minus the resonator, and with K&N filter. But in the future, i want to have a full TBE and catless UP and silicone charge pipe and y pipe.

So if i need replacement, would the OEM kit suffice?

Thanks in advance
