I have the exedy sport clutch and exedy LW flywheel. Im very happy with the setup. The flywheel gave a nice improvement in throttle response and acceleration. The clutch grabs noticably harder than the stock clutch and the pedal feel is slightly stiffer than the stock on my 02 rs. very easy to drive daily, although everyone else that gets in it has stalled it! The revs do drop quicker with the LW flywheel so you really cant lazy shift around town anymore. but at the same time you dont have to shift as fast as you can all the time!
i would definatly recommend this setup. you wont be disappointed.
good luck
Pat

I liked my ACT clutch, it was heavy on the leg though. I have heard good things about exedy too. Right now I have a Bully clutch on my car with a 9lb flywheel, you do get some clutch pedal vibrations at the firction point when you ride it a bit. Thats due to the fact that the light flywheel isnt able to soak up the vibrations as well as a stock flywheel or (as i had befoire my 9lb) a 14 lb flywheel (which was perfect for daily street driving). I think exedy is a safe bet along with ACt. Good luck!

I bought an Exedy Sport from Adam at Z1. It's not installed yet (long story...) but I imagine I'll like it. Adam's a great guy.

The Sport is an STi clutch, without the STi name or price. Subaru uses Exedy for their OE clutches, even the STi ones. I think some, if not all, of the ACT clutches are made by Exedy too, but I might be wrong.

I didn't opt for the flywheel; I want to retain the around-town driveability.

I assure you that around town drivability is not a problem with the exedy lw flywheel. 10 minutes and youll be used to it. Its not as bad as people make it out to be. I was nervous about getting it installed because i thought i was going to have to rev the hell out of the car every time, but this is not the case.

i cannot speak for the other flywheels, i imagine anything lighter than mine would be slightly more difficult.

what rpm's do you have to rev up too to get going? i knokw i can get my car going right now at about 1000-1200 when im being nice. ive heard that you need to rev it up to about 2000-2500 to get going decently.
