Standard flywheel is fine - use a GTA clutch when its time for a new one. Many exhausts available, what year is your car?

the crank is balanced externally, through the flywheel and the crankshaft pulley.... they need to be lightened and balanced as a whole...

OEM GTA clutch is cheaper than an OEM 2.5 V6 clutch. Greater spring pressure in the pressure plate too I am led to believe, so a greater 'clamping force'.

hmm, i've only ever seen them at the same price ~ 145 quid ex tax...

what advantage is 'greater clamping force' with a stock 2.5?

also what about side effects long term in already used drivetrains such as increased crank thrust bearings??

thx
