Clutch/Flywheel combo

My clutch recently started to slip, but it's barely noticeable. I want to replace it before it gets too bad though. I know getting a lightweight flywheel helps with whp and torque, but I wanted to get some suggestions on buying a clutch/flywheel set or if I should buy them separately?

I'd get the Exedy oem kit. Plus add a throw out bearing to the order. You'll find the Exedy oem kit to have a lighter 1 piece flywheel then your dmf you have now.

Hmmm I am also looking to change out my clutch soon. The Exedy combo is tempting as it is under $500 for everything except for new bolts; which I believe with a little threadlock you can re-use the old ones.

Hopefully someone will chime in that has purchased the exedy kit and share their thoughts on it.

Fwerks added the Exedy oem kit to their '07 st turbo w/ great resaults. Thats why I like it & the price is pretty good to= $425.00. I'd add a throw out bearing since your there.
