Pulled the engine today and got a surprise

I had a maddening oil leak that was either the back seal on the oil pan or the rear main seal. Either way I had to remove the engine to fix it. When I took the clutch off I was expecting the worst, after all I have 550 ft lbs of torque going through a stock clutch and I haven't exactly been nice to it for the past 2 years. Much to my surprise the faces of the pressure plate and flywheel are dead flat and just showed the typical marking, no burn marks or scoring at all. I may look into a performance disk only depending how much it costs but I have no qualms at all about putting the stocker back in. I think I'll go buy a lottery ticket.
