If by throw out bearing you mean gearbox release bearing the exedy clutch kits do come with them. Last year I ordered a generic solid billet flywheel from a company in Japan through eBay, I can't remember the name if them but they were incredibly helpful, and it worked out alot cheaper then the TRD, Jun and joda flywheels. I think in total I paid £280 including customs charge to the UK.
Hopefully that's remotely helpful to you :)

Don't. I looked at getting one from "techniclutch" mainly due to the price but I had a quick look online at the company and all I could find was how s@3! their service was and how most if their products were wrong and didn't fit.
So my advice in that would be to stay away from them.

The other thing could be to look at importing one from Japan from someone like rhdjapan or depending on how urgently you need it have a look at negun.com they have TRD, Jun, yoga and a few others. The only problem being is there made to order so takes a few months to make and ship it, but they do ship worldwide.
Hopefully you get it sorted man, it seems that getting a lightweight flywheel for a 3sge engine is a pain in the arse but they are out there :)

Thank you I have read some stuff about them on this forum and it didn't sound to good . I kind of want to get this done in the next couple of months . But I'll stay away from them hopefully something else will come up. I shall look around more for a proper setup. Thanks ! :D

I've got an os giken super single clutch with flywheel lying about. Needs a rebuild though, flywheel is good and has been refaced weighs under 6Kg. Not sure if the flywheel can be used with s different clutch though

Thanks for the offer but I won't be sure what clutch to use either . I'm still debating what setup to run and having difficulties . :(
