XI's upgraded clutch

Looking for an upgraded clutch for my FBO xi. I've read a lot about a lot of brands and everything, but which is the best one in your opinion?
Daily drive car, must be really driveable. I want the clutch AND flywheel.
Any of you who had the same needs and like the choice they made?

Yep! If you change your flywheel, you will loose a bit of drivebility!

IMO this is the most overly-heavy flywheel I've ever driven. I think you could cut the weight in half and almost anybody could get used to it in a day and consider it completely driveable. I can't wait to get rid of it.

I've used a lot of ACTs on other vehicles and they work well for the cost, but I plan on doing an expensive clutch on this vehicle that hopefully will last longer under heavy use while being more refined.

Not contradincting myself, by driveability I mean a clutch/flywheel combo which can still be daily driven. It doesn't have to be as smooth and quiet as stock.
ACT seems to be a good choice, but I'd want to hear about others, which are clutch/flywheel combo.

if you take your car to the drag strip then don't get a lightweight flywheel. it will make it 10x harder to launch. i've had tons of awd cars over the years and when you go for a lightened flywheel, you end up bogging the launch

It's true that if you're traction limited (RWD on street tires) a light flywheel makes the "bog or burn" window even narrower and harder to get a decent launch. On AWD or slicks a lighter flywheel launches just fine. You just add more RPM and use a 2-step.

So anyone with an aftermarket flywheel/clutch wants to share?
I want an advice for what to buy.
I am aware of the consequences that the lightweight flywheels brings up, don't need to be teached about it.
