The ACT Flywheel also! some places sell combos like DSMParts.com i think. And SBR but DSMP gets there stuff from SBR anyways and at DSMP you can "make them an offer" works out nice. I know its not the lightest one out there but for the clutch its the best. Plus i have heard horror stories about fadaniza and how the loose power compared to the ACT's FW because the slip or some crap :rolleyes: good luck with what you get!

I have a new clutch master cylinder, rebuilt slave cylinder, Fidanza aluminum flywheel, ACT 2900 pressure plate with street disc, and I love it. Shifts great, sucks holding the clutch pedal to the floor at long lights, but other than that, I've had no problems.

i have the act 2100 and the act xact flywheel, i think you should get the next highest clutch because the 2100 is nice, for stock, but after a few upgrades (intake, more boost, exhaust, etc) and it slips sometimes.

i also have the act2100 in my fwd, and i've liked it ever since i've had it. i used to have a four puck, now those bitches are horrible. never again will i ever get a puck clutch for a daily driven vehicle. harsh engagments, vibrations, not to mention it ate a ridge into my flywheel and pressure plate. thats how i ened up with the act clutch. i looked up the rre way of lighting the stock flywheel and that what i had a couple of machine shops do for me. feels lighter than before, think it ended up weighing around 14ish lbs.

Don't know how you drive but I drove on a stock clutch with 280whp/wtq and that did not even slip. I have a 2100 now with hybrid street disc and has never slipped either.

Damn, my stock one started slipping like crazy and eventually went running almost stock horsepower. I got an act2600 and fidanza flywheel and am very pleased with the combination.

I'd go ahead and get the 2600 unless you don't plan on modding much. They are almost the same price and you know its gonna hold unless you install it wrong. As far as a flywheel, another vote here for the ACT XACT one. I have it and love it, its chromoly steel so its much safer than a lightened stock one, and weighs less as well.

Well technically that is just a theory, it has never been proved as far as I know. Just disconnect the clutch switch if you are that worried about crankwalk, I could see that helping more than anything, plus its nice not to have to push the clutch in to start the car.
