Default ACT/Exedy clutch kits Vs. Stock (your thoughts?)

I'll soon be replacing my clutch and am weighing an aftermarket Vs. stock replacement for my EJ22 OBS. My impression of the Sube stock mechanical clutch is that it's pretty soft and slips too easily. I'm second owner of this car so it could just be that the previous owner abused the clutch and I'm suffering the consequences. Anyhow, any thoughts or recommendations on the advantages (if any) of an aftermarket clutch kit over a stock (beyond the harder clutch plate) would be most appreciated.

Second question, If I choose to go with an aftermarket kit I may decide to go with a lighter flywheel to. I know how it works, but I've never driven a car with a lighter FW, so I don't know how it feels. Opinions on whether or not a lighter (not super light) flywheel would improve the performance of my 2.2?

Buy the excedy kit at www.clutchcityonline.com

Liek $750 shipped for the 14lb flywheel and clutch. Holds 7 psi on a rs-t and the flywheel is steel and not super ultra light. Cheap too. Clutch feel is close to stock.

I have a ACT clutch with Jun flywheel. ACT is much harder engaging than stock, and it supposed to kil your tranny before going out itself. Flywheel is great. Makes the car fast rewing and easyer to downshift. You may suffer of a little less drivability becouse the momentum loss, the car doesny feel as smooth anymore.
Great mod though.

I carry the Exedy combo for the same price here too. It is a very nice clutch. Streetable and not harsh at all but with a beefier pressure plate. For milder setups, highly recommended.

I have an Excedy Flywheel with ACT/stock clutch. (ACT pressure plate, stock disk) It works absolutely fabulous. I can get it to slip on a very hard abusive launch for about 10 feet (with a stage 2 WRX motor in an RS), so it doesn't kill the trans. The engagement during normal driving is as smooth as stock, with a little harder pedl feel. I've heard if you use the ACT disk it's much more "light switch" though.

The flywheel is very nicy BTW, the engine just revs SO quick now
