Clutch and flywheel debate

    First of all, let me explain what I am doing, and what I am having problems with.

    My stock clutch (which is 10K old) is not holding nor biting nearly as well as it once did. I have always had a slight clutch chatter when at idle and starting in 1st or 2nd gear. The motor has a custom downpipe back exhaust done by my dad, with a AEM filter on the intake. The motor is a JDM replacement with the charcoal canister and EGR removed. The other day, I tapped the clutch and the rpm shot up while cruising and I let the clutch back out, but my engine was still holding 6000rpm, but the clutch was slipping and would not grab at like 40 mph. Long story short, I am overpowering the clutch and wanted to grab a new flywheel with a clutch upgrade.

    I am looking for:
    -s53 transmission (may have already found one)
    Cant find:
    -3SGE Lightweight flywheel (chromoly or aluminum)
    -4 puck, or otherwise more aggressive clutch, something other than organic material, that bites hard, and holds.

    Thanks for your help guys. I also wanted to know if I can use upgraded clutch and flywheel parts from the 3sgte if I have no other choice.

    I think summitracing.com actually carries the flywheel for the 3SGE. Clutch..forget that just get a regular dual friction, but get a centerforce. Willie is running the same clutch on his 3SGTE swap with excellent results, and man what a beating its taken very well.

    So.... there is nothing? Can I use 3sgte parts? I hate how easy hondas have it...

    the 3sgte clutch is probably better quality due to more power output, but they may have just given them the same clutch setup. not sure

    search it in google theres bound to be an aftermarket company that makes it.

    I've tried. I can find a flywheel, but it never shows the price and its on some shady site with no reputation.

    I ordered from ultrarev.com. I ordered a new aggressive clutch, and a lightweight flywheel made by clutchmasters. came to 755 shipped. Will let you guys know how it works out. gotta get my tranny now...
