clutch and much goodies

Well my daily drivers clutch is getting worse by the minute and I'm afraid of giving it any more than 20% throttle under any kind of load as the clutch starts slipping, and after 187k I guess I cant complain. So here goes my mod list.

I had my dad look up a 9-5 aero clutch to see if anything was different about it, and both disc and pressure plate have different part numbers so that was enough reason for me and I've ordered the aero clutch and pick it up tomorrow.

Once clutch is done I'll be building my own 3" turbo back exhaust w/o cat.

I got the car with a bad turbo and the turbo I was sent from my dads place in california was a td04 so that mod is already done.

I'm also adding an HKS electronic boost controller that I'm getting out of a friends wicked fast Evo 9.

Once all is said and done I think that will be it for my daily driver, and run it on 16-18lbs

I dont think you will be able to run 16-18lbs of boost. You can run around 15 max, after that youre flirting with fuel cutoff.
That said, 15psi will still give it a good kick but nothing like a decent ecu upgrade

If you are resurfacing the flywheel - options

I took 4 .5 lbs off my 99 9-5.
It didn't affect idle or low speed engagement.
The 9-5 flywheel is heavy 23 lbs as stock so reducing it 4.5 lbs is still fairly heavy.

I admire your enthusiasm, but you put a boost controller on that and the ECU is going to shit a brick and slam the throttle shut on you. Good call on the aero clutch and turbo though, they're worthwhile upgrades. Make sure you resurface the flywheel before you put the new one in, the aero clutch is bigger and thus won't be in the same grooves. Also for proper power mods you're going to have to either drop some serious $$$ on ECU tuning or go to ecuproject.com and learn to tune the T7 ECU yourself. You can't take any shortcuts with these cars, don't even try the boost controller.
