So it's gettin about time for the first(I assume) clutch replacement. It's an all stock minus short throw and aftermarket H-pipe car. Has right around 66k miles on it. I know I'll need a clutch kit. What about fly wheel? Any suggestions? I know I have no need for a stage 2 or 3. But I will be building it hopefully as soon as a get some cash. Help me out fellas.

so its acting like the clutch is goin out?

id suggest the king cobra clutch, i think 50resto.com has a kit with a alignment tool(which is a must, aligning it with the trans sucks)

take your flywheel to a machine shop to get it resurfaced.

It's startin to slip a little. And sometimes I can smell it. Hmmm sounds like a bad night rather than a bad clutch

I've changed a few clutches, shouldnt take more than 3hrs, maybe 4 if you go slow.

I've pulled built and replaced two motors. Those were in an old chevy tho. I'm pretty decent with tools and such.
