Clutch Upgrade & Questions

At some point soon I will be needing a new clutch. I've never really looked into this area because going FI was not in the original plan and I didn't feel the need to do this. So what should I be looking for and what else should I consider before undertaking the work? A flywheel I think would be a good idea also. Do they have to be balanced to the crank? Would a tune be recommended?

KY clutch is what I'm going to get, although you won't need a stage 3 like I'll be using.

I doubt I'll stay with a 3.1" forever, wouldn't want to buy an intermediate clutch and then have to upgrade again later.

How will the KY affect the drive? Heavier engagement?

Would there be anything to gain by switching to a Dot 4 brake fluid?
