Dyno tune right after clutch install?

Not sure if this is the right section to post this in, so apologies if its posted in the wrong area.

I'm going to be getting a stage 2 comp clutch installed @ English Racing on Monday and a tune right after.
I asked them about the break in for the clutch and they said it would be fine.
Is this true?
I'm really worried it will affect the longevity of my new clutch as I cannot afford another 1300$ for clutch and install anytime soon.
English Racing is 2 and a half hours from me, so getting a dyno tune right after would be really convenient and save me money and time. But I don't want to do it at the cost of my clutch.
I know English Racing is very reputable out here in the NW and I'm sure know their stuff, but I'm still a bit worried.
So I was hoping people with experience could chime in.
It would be much appreciated,
Thank you.

I don't see a problem with it. I wouldn't think clutch's life would get affected from a few WOT pulls on the dyno. Not like it's a launch or something like that.

I am in almost the exact same situation as you. I am doing a winter build as well as a clutch install and will need a tune almost immediately. I though went with a Exedy Twin which I know will easily hold my power outputs. Either way, after my install I am going to try and do a bit of a break in before the dyno just to make sure. If you had a higher rated clutch i would be less worried, but since the stage two is an organic clutch, it really needs time to break in and properly mate with the flywheel face. Like brakes and rotors...they wear to each others face. If it is a simple tune you should be ok but you are taking some risk, and it isn't optimum given that it is an organic faced clutch.
That being said i just came from a Exedy stage 1 HD and i only put 200 miles on it until my first race and that sucker held like a champ and I never had any issues with it. But i knew the risk and was willing to take it.

You will be fine. They arent slipping the clutch any like launching would, while the car is on the dyno. After you get the car home do a light break in on the clutch, you will be fine. Its a light non aggressive clutch, so a vigorous break in isnt needed.

I agree with this, makes sense!

No different than when you do some pulls on the highway with your new clutch.
