10 spline is for the stock tranny. 26 would be needed if you had a 26 spline hardened shaft installed. (yes I said hardened shaft installed, stop snickering).

Only if you are buying a flywheel.

should be all right, I am gonna pump that kind of power to my stage 3.

If you have a 8bolt crank you will need a 8 bolt flywheel (not sure if your still putting this build back together.) however if your using a stock transmission with stock input shaft, you will need a 10 spline disk.

If you are doing a spec clutch, the only one that people haven't been reporting issues with is the 3+. I have that in my car along with their low pedal requirement and it works well. It is a grabby clutch and during break-in it's a pain so be prepared for that. The low pedal requirement keeps the pedal pressure as light if not lighter than stock so that's nice, but it does grab up high.

As for where to get one, just about any performance shop can. I don't know where you are in NJ but you can go to JDM if you're central, if you southern you can go to Tillman in Aston PA. If you are south and want to feel what a spec 3+ feels like drop me a pm and we'll meet up.
