Need some help picking a cutch Please HELP ASAP!

Well the time has come i have blown my clutch out on my coug, well it's not totally dead yet but it's on it's last legs if u kno wut i mean. So its time to replace i have been looking into Spec and i'am almost 100 percent positive i will buy one of their products. But what clutch is right for me??? I have heard some bad things about stage 2 clutches glazing or something. So is stage 3 too much for me? I only have small bolt on items full exaust, intake, svt parts etc... But i dont want my clutch pedal too be too firm or have to sharp of an engagement. So if anyone knows of a clutch tht will be able to take a beating once in a while and still hold up to everyday driving which is usually slightley aggresive than please let me know. Also do i need to buy a flywheel, is it worth the 400 bucks or no? thanks
