Beams Clutch Options

    Hey everyone, I'm looking it to getting a redtop 3SGE beams engine, however there is no flywheel included. So I'm trying to figure out what my options are in terms of finding a replacement? I've done a lot of research online about different flywheels and what not but I can't find anything that gives me a YES or NO answer. I've read that a 5SFE FW won't work because of the different bolt pattern, so would it be possible to source another FW from a 2nd or 3rd gen 3SGE? The other thing I was wondering is what clutch kit I should use. I currently have a EXEDY OE clutch kit for a 5SFE, HOWEVER more research has told me that this isn't a very good clutch to use with the beams engine and that I should get a stage 2 clutch disk for my clutch set up.

    I've also read that you can do a hybrid clutch however I'd much rather sick with a normal clutch kit all designed to work together. Hopefully someone can clear all this up for me because as you can see I'm quite lost.

    I used a Fidanza flywheel for my Beams unit.Bit expensive but well worth it.So far I've found the Exedy kit perfectly adequate for my needs,the car gets driven pretty hard.Think the part no is TYK 2064:itll depend on the transmission,you can use that clutch kit on all the S series gearboxes,but the spline count is different on the E series gearbox
