Talking Miata Clutch and flywheel question

Hey everyone,

well i have been looking up clutchs for my miata,
i just installed a greddy bolt on turbo kit in my miata and my clutch is starting to slip.

I wanted to know if i would also need a flywheel or if i can just run the stock one, also what would be the advantages or disadvantages.

i am currently in a tight budget
i came across these kits

1.This complete clutch kit includes:
F1 Racing Stage 3 Heavy-Duty Pressure Plate
F1 Racing Stage 3 Copper Ceramic 6-Puck Sprung Disc (7-7/8", 22 spline)
Release Bearing
Pilot Bearing
Alignment Tool
Ultra heavy-duty and weighs only 9.95 lbs (stock flywheel weighs 19 lbs)
Made from 4140 forged chromoly steel (2X stronger than billet steel)
F1 Racing Lightweight Chrome-Moly flywheels incorporate special design features to enhance the airflow for improved clutch cooling
CAD designed, CNC machined and computer balanced
Includes new flywheel bolts

F1 STAGE 3 CLUTCH KIT& RACING FLYWHEEL 89-93 MIATA 1.6L : eBay Motors (item 400047800867 end time Feb-28-10 11:03:56 PST)

There is also the version that does not contain the flywheel which is 180$ cheaper.

The 2nd kit that i came across was a
ACT
ACT Heavy Duty Clutch Kit 90-93 Mazda Miata

Mind you i would not be able to afford a flywheel with the ACT

This is what ebay flywheels get you:

But go for ebay clutches, they're nice.

Call me crazy, but the first ad doesn't seem to include the flywheel.

Also, on the ACT unit, if you do a search to other sites that sell the same act part number, you must go to a 1.8 flywheel.

Don't cheap out on the part that actually puts the power to the rear wheels. Get a good ACT clutch and a OEM 1.8 flywheel, then save up your money for a new differential/driveshaft/axles once you blow up your stock 1.6

Be very careful with the stock 1.6 rearend; one good 5K+ plus launch can easily grenade it, even with a stock 1.6 clutch.
