There's some good information here:

What do you use the car for? How much power do you/will you have? Some more information could help provide better advice.

From what Ive heard, driveability is basically what it comes down to.
I got the same mods as you, put in the oem clutch and flywheel, took easy the first few hundred miles, but I can let it rip with 0 issues or slips.
Its quiet, easy on my leg in traffic, and easy to drive smooth.
Just my experience.

you could upgrade to a slightly better clutch but don't get a lightweight flywheel for your dd unless you like drivetrain noise. (from experience)

The oem flywheel filters out a LOT of drivetrain noise, the other downside is that the lighter unit will give your ecu fits of thinking you are having a misfire. The check engine light will eventually turn off but it loves to pop back on - annoying but not dangerous.

I do enjoy the quicker revs - just didn't realize what I'd have to deal with for them.

1. You posted in the wrong forum.
2. Someone posted an EXCELLENT article as to what clutch you need, then you don't read it.

Please be classy. Read what people post and post appropriately.
