    A clutch out of a 97 will not fit your 99. They tranmissions are different, the bellhousings are different, and the clutch release system is different.

    I reccommend ordering the LS7 kit from the sponsors, it maintains stock pedal feel and longevity, but it holds significantly more power than stock. You should be able to get a complete package (flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout, pilot) for slightly over $400.

    I'd say Centerforce Dual Friction or a Spec Stage 3+.

    I'd say Spec Stage 3+. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Also take into account your gonna need to have the flywheel machined if you go that route, as well as your gonna wanna replace the pilot bearing (not sure if its included), throughout bearing (don't think its included), slave cylinder, and '01-02 master cylinder with drill mod if you have the cash. Its definately worth it so you don't have to pull the tranny again.
