I see CFM has 2 AL flywheels- I'm not sure which one I'd get, but then I'm not sure which clutch is best to get. I seem to remember someone having issues with Clutch Masters. I can't recall any problems with Exedy or Spec. CFM has their own clutch kit, but I'm not sure what parts are used in that kit.

It will be a miracle if I make it to FF13 on this clutch, so I have to find out soon.
Throw the Exedy oem replacement on board. Plus add a throw out bearing to that order too.
