Fellahs, I too, am in the business of replacing my clutch. I have to wait until I get back from Iraq in about three months. How do I drive my car? Mostly on the street with the occasional trip down the 1320 and I'm a huge fan of auto-crossing. By the time I return home, I'll have my alcohol kit, GSC 272/272 cams, 10.5 hotside, ported exhaust mani, SS O2 housing, MBC, 255 fuel pump, intake, and a few other small things installed and ready to go. I already have a custom street tune scheduled for January. I'm running the stock VIII turbo and at the end of the year, I'll have the EVO Green turbo sitting pretty under the hood. I have to agree that buying a clutch for the sake of saving money to later replace the clutch sooner than expected is not something that I want to do. I'd prefer to spend the money on a quality product to include the flywheel when I purchase the combination. My question is, considering what I said above, what do you fellahs think? Thanks and I appreciate it.

I hope you don't mind, but this is worthy of it's own thread. Your car, your goals, and your purposes are different then others.

I undrstand that you don't want to cut corners on the clutch, but too much clutch can excessively wear flywheels and pressure plate rings, splines, and transfer cases. Realistically, how much flywheel torque is this set up going to produce? With that information it should narrow the field a little.
