why would you want to do that ?

Use a good quality pressure plate, and a matching diameter clutch disk. If you don't the pressure plate will roll over the edge of the disk causing warpage and abnormal wear on the clutch disk.

there are several affordable aftermarket units available, but the more pressure the plate has the better to prevent slippage. You are not going to be driving this thing around town so the extra pedal pressure it takes to disengage it won't matter.
