Nah, Exedy organic. Since the stock clutch wimped out (see the massive hot spots on the flywheel), upgraded was the way to go.

I added some more info about the shift fork/shaft in the OP's link.

Yeah I have the Exedy Organic Clutch, I LOVE IT! I have a ACT Flywheel that has been lying in my garage for about a year now... afraid to install it, heard some things about flywheels and screwing things up.

Has is your combo going so far?

How light is your flywheel? And do you have a lightened crank pulley?

too light and you might set erronous missfire codes.

the flywheel mod was very noticable immediately, at about 5k rpm or so. amazing considering it doesn't technicaly add hp, just takes less away...

something about the cam position sensor the car thinks its misfiring under certain conditions...i think i might have been sold a prolight flywheel instead of a street lite one. judging by the pic i took compared to the pic on gruppe-s's website it looks like the 9.6 lbs one. (i bought it from sparky)

but i figured if it was the 9.6 lbs one i figure it would be a lot more difficult to drive. its thrown a check engine light 4 times since i've installed it (130 miles) all for misfires
