    clutch masters said they could custom build me one for $550 so im trying to see if i can find one first

    Alot of power is restricted with the flywheel and pulleys, by replacing them with lighter built flywheel and pulleys you will def. feel a difference added with a header and intake and full exhaust which im going to do

    You could consider getting the stock one lightend by a machine shop as well (if theres enough matrial there). Although im wondering how a 2.7 would feel with a lightweight flywheel... kinda strange i imagine as its not really a high rev. motor.

    This is true. You should see a marked difference in throttle response. Pretty kick ass setup if you ask me, which no one does.

    i had a scion tc Naturally aspirated race built with light weight flywheel and stage 2 clutch with pulleys and it was great and the engine is only a 2.4L...so i think the engine can handle it

    unless someone tried it and it didnt work out very well

    Its not that i dont think it could handle it, i guess it just depends on the aplication. I've had a couple turbo honda's in my day with light weight flywheels and there great for high rpm shreading (my fiance has a tc btw and when the clutch dies its on the list). Think about low speed off road manuvers with a light weight flywheel though and thats where im talking about the diffence.
