I dont know where to get them, but from what I remember the Clutchmasters Stage I is real good for your car. For flywheel, the fidanza 9lb is the lightest you'll get, but alot of people find that a tad TOO light, so a lightened mx3 flywheel (~14 lbs) works well. You could always hit up a machine shop and get your original lightened as well...

Check out www.spmotorsports.com for the clutches and flywheels. Centerforce is good and so is Clutchmasters for clutches. Fidanza is a nice flywheel and it is cheaper than UOR.

I dont think the Fidanza is too light. The clutch engages the same as it did stock. It is just fine for city driving and when you step on the gas, it revs faster. I see no downsides to it yet.

I love mine.

Yea the only thing I've heard from people who don't like it is that the revs drop too fast, so shifting isnt as optimal(ie - when u shift to the next gear the rpm's drop quickly and its a little harder to match the rpm's). I personally haven't tried one so I can't say either way.

Na, they dont drop that fast. I dont think it drops much faster than stock. Seriously, you would have to granny shift to fall out of the rpm range. It really is not a problem.

I think I might try the Fidanza flywheel. Thanks for the Info...

This might sound stupid but someone told me if the flywheel is to light the RPM drops to fast and cause the car to cut off....I dont now how true it is....Any Comments?

I have only known of that happening to one guy, and his TPS was all messed up. Once he adjusted it everything was fine. Mine has never cut off. Runs like a champ.
