Flywheel, clutch, other
Spoke to the local transmission shop that I normally trust with all my work. Really good guys, fair prices. I hate working on transmissions...
Quoted 1127 bucks to replace the clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and flywheel on the GTO. Said the flywheel can't be resurfaced, and must be replaced. Is this true of the flywheel in our cars/LS1's?

No, they can be resurfaced, I went with a fridenza aluminum, and spec3+ clutch though. Sounds about right on the price(I guess), but I wouldn't pay it!! I think you can get it cheaper, buy the parts off of E-Ghey from a reputible shop and just pay them or someone else for labor

I need a clutch that will take the abuse of many trips to the track without any worries of not being able to drive it home. Any ideas??? I hear the LS7 one would be fine but want more info...
I will be launching around 4000RPM no weight reduction
I am N/A right at 500 crank HP.

Check out Monster clutches. A lot of guys have had good luck with them.
As far as the flywheel resurfacing goes, it is NOT reccommended that you resurface the flywheel on LSX vehicles. Whenever the clutch is replaced, the flywheel should be as well. Its due to the fact that our cars use a concentric slave cylinder to release the clutch. If you notice, any clutch kit you buy from an auto parts store comes as a clutch/flywheel package, as well as the LS7 kit.
Not saying it can't be done, but for the extra money its worth just buying a new flywheel.

I would spend the money once and do it right.

I can put these in cars with 600+RWHP and hot lap them at the track with back to back nitrous passes and they don't blink!!
