Default 300ZX or Maxima clutches compatible with VG30E D21?

Hello Gentlemen,
I searched for a while yesterday, but couldn't find a sure answer.

Some of the "online configurators" for various clutch makers seem to ignore the V6 version of our trucks, but they have plenty of options for the VG30E powered 300ZX or Maximas. Is it safe to assume that any clutch kit for VG30E powered Nissan vehicles is compatible with our VG30E powered truck?

Over the years I've replaced everything in my little truck, only unknown part is the clutch, so I want to be ready for the day it goes (I have a gut feeling).

Thanks.

PS= I am looking specifically for aftermarket street kit from a brand such as Exedy/ACT etc. Been using OEM for everything else (timing belt, etc), but going with a quality aftermarket brand for the clutch. Don't bother suggesting OEM for this one.

Rock auto for the clutch. Pretty sure its the same as the Z and the VG33 powered X and Frontier.

+1 on the exedy. I am running one and it's a great clutch, nice and smooth. 4 years in and no problems to report.

Thank you gentlemen. I see that the Exedy 06042 is the model available in RockAuto as well as the Exedy configurator.

I was hoping for a slightly more aggressive clutch (I work the little truck a lot and I prefer a stiffer pedal anyway).
Nothing crazy like a puck clutch, but an upgraded street disc with a slightly heavier pressure plate would be my ideal choice.

I'll continue my research and I guess I'll get the Exedy OEM replacement if I can't find anything slightly beefier.

I have a 6 puck ceramic behind my VG33. The pedal is snappier than OE but softer.
