best way to fit....and why won't it start?

Hi guys, happy new year to you all.

I've not posted for a while so this is what has happened and what is going to happen.

Had a road trip to wales in October, late at night having a great run on the m56 with a Audi then on the back roads to neyphn. On the way back under hard acceleration the engine spun up, needs a new clutch the car has just come up to 70k so its about right but I will get back to that and my question.

Parked the car up outside my house in the morning washed it and went to put it in the garage and it would not open from the key fob, if I used the key to open the car the alarm went off and the key pad would not respond. End of the day (two weeks of trying to find a solution) I had to get the car towed to a local car electrician and a whole new immobiliser system costing 475.

Back to the clutch, putting in a
Exedy WRX & STI Stage 1 Organic Clutch Kit 1993-2012 Pink Box from Scooby world and thinking about a light weight flywheel but have been told for the road not to bother ( any thoughts?) But the real question is I watched a YouTube clip of a guy changing the clutch by taking the engine out the watch ed China change the clutch by dropping the gear box out the bottom. Which is the easiest way of doing it or more to the point the quickest way? Has anyone tried it? Any information would be a great help.
