Question New clutch kit??

I am needing to purchase a new clutch kit for my 05 ZX4 ST. No local part stores have one or can get on so i have the option of getting one through dealership or online, my decision is easy on those 2 choices, ONLINE. I am thinking of trying to get a performance kit if i can find one thats not too much more expensive then an OE replacement. Does anyone know a good website to purchase a performance clutch kit for my car? Does anyone also have any opions on performance clutch kits vs stock, or what brand(s) would you recommend for a performance clutch kit??

^that link wont work cause FF kills links to Focussport's site...

anyway, go type in Focussport.com and look up their exedy clutch kit line, they have everything from OE replacement kits to big power race kits. i have the exedy stage 2 clutch kit on my turbo time attack car and its been flawless for over 2 years

I haven't called Clutchmasters yet, but I'm thinkin' about going with their dual clutch set up (FX600), unless it's crazier than a stage 3. If someone knows something I don't please tell me, like if it's 10x more extreme than a stage 4 or 3, then I'd recommend the dual disc.
1.) Clutchmasters
2.) Nothing above stage 3, except for dual disc, unless you want to hate your life. Go with a combo pack from focus.c-f-m.com.

Thanks for all the comments guys, those links have been helpful. Now i have another question, Will a clutch set for an '03 ZX3 fit my '05 ZX4 ST. Both cars have the MTX 75 transmission so i think they might but i think one website said something bout a conversion needing to be done in order to make it work.

svt and zetec clutches will not fit

svt clutches won't fit period

zetec clutches require a conversion flywheel.

a side mental note.. why would you want to modify something that rotates just as fast as the motor assembly...

that has nothing to do with what i said. of course i know the reason for a better clutch.

i was talking about modifying SVT parts to fit a duratec in that area.
