I'd say an Exedy kit with a solid flywheel is probably going to be your best option. Next step up would be a JUN or TRD flywheel & Exedy Sportstuff HD clutch kit http://japrace.com/products/Exedy-Sport ... tezza.html

First kit is for use with the OE dual mass flywheel, second kit isn't for our car. What flywheel are you going to use?

First one looks alright, kind of cheap sounding, and doesn't have that amazing figures for an apparent HD clutch, also looks like it needs to work with the factory dual mass flywheel as it has no dampening in the middle.

Second clutch wont work with your car. It's for MR2s and Celicas.

To be honest look at Exedy standard or even just OEM replacement of the disc and pressure plate if your flywheel is fine.

If you want a solid or light weight flywheel look at Exedy too, thats if you're wanting a cheapish and good replacement.

Talk to Nick the site trader he can do good prices and quick delivery.

You'll need to use a clutch kit to suit the light weight flywheel like TRD/Exedy make. The cheap eBay ones wont work with it. Where abouts are you based? Have a chat to your local Exedy distributor or even Nick

Theres the whole JUN clutch kit. Get that.

Don't know why it differs between the facelift and pre-facelift models though for the clutch.
