Another SE clutch/flywheel question

Well after 4 years and 60,000 I think my clutch is about to go. I did all my searching and found a lot of info, but still couldn't decide on the best set. I dont plan on doing any street racing or anything but I do push her a lot.
I found this:

and was wandering if this is the one that throws a code or not. Is this a good buy or not and if not whats the best option for me?

I heard that even the newer fidanza flywheels (which are not supposed to throw codes on a B15) still throw a code. Personally the only flywheel I would trust to work without a code (at this point) is a JWT. While you are ordering their flywheel you should also buy their upgraded pressure plate. That wit a stock clutch disc will work well for you.

I have a new fidanza... and a ses

I'm seriously contemplating having my stock flywheel turned down while it's out and then swap it back in when I need a new clutch again (not sure how long the act HDSS will hold with the turbo setup). I am also thinking of upgrading the vlsd, so I could swap it at the same time. Either way, I'll have to do it withing a year so I can pass inspection

I really love my JWT clutch and pressure plate. Has some slight clutch chatter, but has very very good holding power. Has just slightly more stock pedal pressure feel.

I am suprised it's almost out at only 60K. Do you do a lot of drag or autox???

The fidenzas throw a code, I believe, because they don't use the stock gear ring. The JWT and UR ones do...

NO! Maybe i'm just being paranoid.it just feels so much different lately. It feels smoother and it idles rough in 1st and reverse when holding (or maybe i'm just losing it).
