That's okay, its probably going to be a learning curve for me anyway. Whats the difference between the stages and is it worth getting my flywheel done at the same time?

I don't think any one pointed me in the right direction, are all stage one clutches the same? Or is there a pick of the bunch?

They're all relatively close. You would want to get a new flywheel or have your old one resurfaced upon replacement of your clutch. Usually they will need replacement if you can see any cracks, burns, pits, or blueing.

Jumping in after a long hiatus...so my stock clutch has been hanging on for over 140K miles but it's time to replace it as there is some slippage going on. I'm doing some basic bolt on mods, CAI, possibly a larger TB, header but nothing too extreme. I want to get better performance but maintain every day driveability. I was leaning toward this setup on ebay:

What impact would the lighter flywheel have on performance? Is the 9.6 lbs going to be too light for daily driving? Should I just go the stock flywheel and have it resurfaced? Thanks in advance?

Same thing, with less postage. I think it's a stock pressure plate that's been painted, pretty sure your mostly getting the lighter flywheel and clutch pad. If your just going to use it as a daily I wouldn't go anything over a stage one I don't think its nessary

Few examples

This one looks like its got a stronger pressure plate would probably be my choice

If it's just for a daily driver, I would recommend just throwing in an AutoZone special as they are cheap enough. If its not too bad, I wouldn't even sweat over the flywheel. Ideally, yes, you would put one in but for a car with such low horsepower as long as the flywheel is majorly FUBAR I would re use.

If your paranoid about re-using your flywheel, take it to be resurfaced for peace of mind and I'm sure it wouldn't break the budget
