Wow you have pretty much everything and you seem to be set to go. Good luck with the build. I'll keep track of it with all the other build threads.

I am still undecided on a clutch and flywheel kit. I do not want the noise that a aluminum flywheel brings unless there is no other way. I have not heard or seen anyone comment on the Spec stage3 kit with a steel flywheel. I would assume that the steel flywheel will be lighter than the current dual mass even if not as light as the aluminum flywheel. What would the drawback be with using a steel flywheel?

Drawbacks would be that the engine wouldn't be able to rev up as fast as with aluminum...slightly more "drag" on the engine which people claim can add to turbo lag.

All in all, there aren't any drawbacks to a steel flywheel. You are right that it will still be lighter than the stock dual mass (about 4 - 6 lbs lighter).

If you don't want the noise, a steel flywheel will be perfectly fine.

I do not think with the BBB turbo I got I have any worries about LAG or drag :)

Correct. Steel flywheel will be perfectly fine and will perform much much better than stock dual mass.

i never got any noise that i could here out of my alum flywheel although i have heard a few people claim to. i ran a cm flywheel with a cm stg 4 6 puck. i loved it. when i put a flywheel and clutch in the subi that is what i will use.

Getting ready to put all this together. Anyone know where I can buy a EGR blanking plate and the JR PCV plate? I will probably get the CFM unit, but I do not want to wait for it to be available to start putting my setup together.

EGR...

PCV...

http://www.jayracing.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=194

They are sold out of the PCV block off right now and have been for two weeks. I emailed them a while ago and they said they would be back in stock by the end of last week. Well a week later they still aren't. I was told to keep checking and they would be ready "soon." I really hope it's soon.
