Default Clutch and Flywheel

Im looking at a new clutch for the car, the clutch i want is the fm stage 1 kit. which flywheel should i get with it, the 10.3lb or the 13.45lb. my car has a turbo not a supercharger.

Given the complete lack of info regarding your setup and intended use, just leave the stock flywheel on and then use the old clutch to beat yourself about your head, neck and shoulder area. After that, proceed to abuse the area known to most of us as a groin.

As I see it the only reasonable options are the FM clutches or 949 twin. I hear the FM clutch is great but I don't like the lack of spring retaining champfer thingies on the FM clutch which my Spec clutch has.

That depends on a few things.
1: drag race and suck at launching? Heavier
2: drag race and can drive like you da swangin' dick? Lighter
3: real racing? Lighter
4: Street driven and are a whiny vagina about "streetability?" Heavier
5: Street driving and have hair on your chest and models on your *****? Lighter

I just got cleaned up after a couple rounds with two chicks, yeah dogg, 2 count em TWO hoes, and every car I own has the lightest flywheel possible. That is of course, if I take the time to give a damn to change it, which sometimes I don't, since I'm busy with two chicks. But take that as the sage advice that it is: That dude has very light flywheels. That dude also banged two chicks.

I was just.. uh... making sure.

I had the 10.3lb Flywheel with my FM clutch and it worked great. I drove it on the street and had no issues. So I would recommend that.
