Need a new clutch

My clutch has all but had it. I'm getting a new one and i have to have my third gear worked on. i don't want to get another stock one and i was hoping someone could tell me which clutch i should get so that i'm not always barking my tires and scarin folks at the drive-thru. i was thinkgin about getting the blitz set that has a new flywheel and all but i dunno. PLEASE HELP! and i'm thinkin about getting the XS turbo too...if that makes a difference to your choice.

sorry this is so long, but i wanted to give as much info as i can.

thanks!

what do you mean about the tires and scaring people? a burnt out clutch usually has no power and performance and is slow to engage. there's even the ordor that eminates from the clutch.

anywho, the blitz flywheel/clutch combo is really aggressive and has a rough engagement. remember, you don't necessarily need a super high end clutch. draggers win with low 9's on a stock clutch and upgraded clutch cover. you also have to be careful about the flywheel. something too light can bring about issues. but, if you are going with a forced induction then yes, you would need something to at least handle the torque increase.

act has a variety of applications, and so does exedy. blitz would be an excellent match if you wanted the sc. check with xs and see what they recommend.

so I have to buy the clutch kit and the lightened flywheel separate right? which will be around $800.00.
