So I'm looking to buy a new clutch as mine is starting to slip.

My car is completely stock, except for a custom straight pipe exhaust.

My question, is which would you go for?

The South Bend rally Clutch: $325
OE Sachs Clutch Kit: $309

In addition, which flywheel would you pair them with? or would u resurface the one you already have?

All input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

AFAIK, you can't resurface DMFW's.

South Bend with resurfaced stock flywheel. I've been running it for a few years now.

What are the pros and cons of resurfacing the existing flywheel versus getting a new lightweight one?

there removing material to flaten the surface, thus a new one will be bulkier with more material

a lightweight one will require you to be slightly more mindful of your engagement, due to the lower inertia, and you might hear a little chatter from time to time.

but it will drastically increase acceleration in the low gears, as well as let your motor rev up and down more freely. see also: get one, they're awesome.

IMO, one of the coolest/most fun mods you can put on a car.
