Default clutch and flywheel advice

I need some advice on clutch and flywheels please. I am after a setup that will handle over 250whp and 300ft lb torque. I donít currently have that much but am aiming to so would like to have my driveline ready. I am considering the fm stage 2 happy meal. Does anyone have first hand experience with this setup? I am currently running an exedy sports tuff clutch with a machined stock flywheel (would not be that light) but have a squeeky bearing so need to get it sorted. I am not that concerned if the car is not great in traffic.

My car currently has about 210-220whp but I will be increasing the boost (rotrex) by about 1.5psi and also getting cams, cam gears and springs etc done. I would think that would get about 240whp. I mainly use the car for spirited road driving and time attack. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks all.

I'm runnng the clutchnet group buy red2x or whatever with a sprung 6 puck disc and a lightened oem flywheel.

I like the feel of this over the act/fidanza set-up as it isn't so jerky and I don't have to rev the **** out of the car to make it move.

I run just under 300whp and run time attacks and daily drive the car. The clutch was also very affordable (400bux or so shipped IIRC)

The stage one FM happy meal will work fine it is good up to 318tq if I remember correctly and that is going to be well over 300 hp on a Turbo Miata. Stage 2 is going to be overkill I would think.
