    8 pounds is very light.. you'll have to feather the clutch quite a bit and get used to the way it drives, but it will all become second nature before long. And definently do the timing belt while the motor is out and you're swapping water pumps anyway.. Just one less thing to worry about down the road.

    I have the same setup in my B16 (XTD stage two and 8lbs flywheel) It works great, I dont have any complaints, you do have to get used to it, you have to really feather it taking off or it will chatter, but any aftermarket clutch will do that. And definitly do the timing belt too, bad things happen on these motors when and old neglected timing belt snaps.

    For a stock motor all you need is OEM.

    alright i just put the clutch on and put the tranny back on. how do i know if i installed it correctly?? i put in the throw out bearing that was a bitch but it went together good. i tried simulating pushing the clutch by moving that bar that the clutch cable connects to but it doesnt move to much. everything went good and smooth but that bar doesnt move.

    Your not going to be able to move that by hand. Put the cable on and try it out, if it works then you put it in right, if it doesnt then you did something wrong.:ph34r:
