clutch and flywheel

i drive a svt, and i just got my southbend clutch and light weight flywheel in
and everyone is saying to be careful to not break my trans?

i never did clutch dumps before and i still dont.
why would i break my transmission?
it revved up quick before
due to tune, 67mm tb, and stuff
but do i really have to be worried?

There is nothing to be worried about. I had a freind of mine tell me the same thing, but was unable to explain his reasoning.

Besides, I have never read of anyone on here having anything go bad because their aluminum flywheel.
WAY too many performance mods to list. Check profile if you wanna know. And yes, I installed all my mods myself in my garage. No special tools.
