    i wouldn't bother with the pulleys.

    depending on you cash flow, you could get an ITR flywheel and clutch if you wanted to stay cheap.

    i have an exedy clutch and love the thing.. some people will say oppose but i have had no problems with it

    The ITR flywheel is still kinda on the heavy side and is not much cheaper then an ACT FW. I have the ACT streetlite (12lbs) which is 2-3lbs lighter then the ITR FW, and 6lbs lighter then the stock b-series FW.


    I would agree not to get the pulleys. They are a waste and only hurt your accessorys.

    I would for sure put a new timing belt and waterpump on.

    Not AEM. I've heard good things about spoon...but pretty much any 6 nut gears are good.

    toda and spoon (same gears) have a feature were they can only be adjusted xx degrees, so if they slip, you dont fuck your engine.
