Default New clutch time

Well I took my tranny down again and discovered the pressure plate fingers are bent. So I decided to go with a new clutch and pressure plate. I just have a couple questions...

What would be the best clutch for my application?(with my mods on the 99)
I have heard some good things about RAM and bad things about SPEC Textralia, and I heard Centerforce Dual friction clutch arent up to par either.

I bought a new slave from Orielly's and I have an adjustable master. Can I keep the stock flywheel and just get it machined or do I need to purchase a new flywheel?

If you have any other relevant info it is greatly appreciated.

im in the same boat here too...my clutch is almost dead its not up to holding the power my car is making. I dont want to spend over 900 in parts on a new Ram Clutch combo if I can just get what is absolutly necessasry. I do plan on sprayin later. some opinions would be appreciated.

TTT for you's ....

I'm never going to make over 400 rwhp.... I was thinking the Z06 Clutch kit should be good enough, or no?
