Alright need a new clutch soon thinking about the 300fx from clutch masters... good bad? Also should I get a fly wheel or resurface the stock one? RingerRacing has this kit with a fly wheel seems to be the way I'm leaning but if I could save money by keeping my fly wheel I might do that. Planning on around 300whp

Get a new fw.

Less hassle in the long run, you wont want to pull the clutch or have someone do it again if the dmfw goes sideways.

Mike is great to deal with from what I hear, you won't go wrong with a full clutch kit from him.

CM is great. I had a 240mm FX300 w/ steel 20lb. LWFW. I loved it.

I'm in the same boat as the OP with the needing a new clutch soon, but idk what I should go for. I don't want 300hp. I'm doing K04 and some supporting mods to MAYBE see 225 at the crank. Would I need to go with such and expensive clutch kit or would I be ok for a while with OE?

That would be the better choice if looking to go with a 228mm billet steel flywheel setup. Other option would be the 240mm FX200 for a street car making that power. The CM 228mm setup will have stock to softer then stock pedal feel with high engagement like stock and will have some gear rattle with the 15 lbs flywheel, the CM 240mm setup will have a slightly stiffer then stock pedal feel with a mid pedal engagement and no gear rattle with the 19 lbs flywheel. The FX400 clutch will grab harder during engagement while the FX200 is butter smooth.

Just get the flywheel so u don't have to worry bout the old one messing up. If your gonna be launching it, fx400. Clutch masters ftw

Auh I'd def get a clutch I have a k04 now and have problems with it slipping in high gear the best choices for clutches I have seen is on RingerRacing.com and I am thinking of going with the 240mm fx300 wither the 19lb flywheel I don't want chatter

I'd highly recommend the South Bend/DXD Stage 3 Daily setup. About 25% firmer than the stock pedal, great quality, and holds about 400 crank tq.

The South Bend SS kits have a very stiff pedal, anyone that has had one will tell you exact the same thing.

I was under the impression that the 240mm FX400 has stock like driveability and same engagement point (some change is good, some isn't). Is this incorrect?

It is not far off from stock. The CM 228mm kit engages up high like the stock clutch, the 240mm kit engages slightly lower about mid pedal because of its 2200 lbs clamping load vs the 1800 lbs of the 228mm kit. That extra 400 lbs of resistance needs a bit more pedal travel to get it to fully release the disk. I know plenty people running the 240mm FX400 6 puck on their daily drivers and after a few weeks of driving it just feels normal to them.
