High performance GT3 clutch

I'm in the process of upgrading my 996 GT3 to 3.8 and while the engine is out, I would like to install a new clutch. Street driving and carving corners on the occasional canyon runs is all I do.
Any thoughts on a nice clutch/flywheel upgrade?

Hi Henry,
I know this won't fit your engine, but i used a Kep all aluminum pressure plate, (about 6-1/2 pounds, I think it is rated for up to 400 hp), and a Fenlane 6+ pound RSR flywheel on my 74 915. These should liven p the engine a bit - perhaps they have something similar that would work on your G50???

Hey Henry .
I have part numbers I can post tonight after I finish work , but you should look at the 4.0 lwf clutch .
If you want to go lighter there is a cup flywheel too , but probably not worth it on street driven car .

or
997 GT3 4.0 RS(will require a bit more leg for a bit more clamp)

Full rs4.0 kit. Run it in my 964 and 997.1rs
The 40 pressure plate is a much stouter design.
