Which clutch do you guys recommend?

Like the title says, I'm looking to upgrade. I'm having my new transmission installed and they have agreed to install the clutch for free while it's apart so I'm thinking stage 2. Thanks in advance also isn't my clutch a 23 or 26 spline? IDK when I look it up I get different answers

Yeah that's far from built. You have to watch out for lowflyn though. He is hooked hard on cobras.

1. Upgrade your clutch pedal box and remove the lame helper spring, this will eliminate the clutch pedal return failure. If you've had it
2. Replace the plastic clutch hydralic fluid line, it is restricted to .0058" and under high pressure situations, it will suffer from wall expansion.
3. Get a McLeod RXT twin disc. More clutch than you can burn out at your HP level and can handle abuse.

OK now should I go with a lightened steel or aluminum flywheel? I've heard the aluminum will Rev faster but the steel has better street drivability.

Basically I'm gonna go RST with stock flywheel or spec stage 2+ w/matching flywheel.
