Clutch and Flywheel

hey guys not sure if anyone has come along this before but i have an e34 that i will be adding some power to with a turbo kit from schmiedmann, its an m50b20 btw . so i was wondering while i am putting some money and power into my car and it will be out for a few weeks, should i get a lightened flywheel and upgraded organic m5 clutch? i dont know anyone who has has experience with lightened flywheels but do they actually help? does the engine perform better as in minor accel. benifits and more control over your rpms? my clutch seems to be alright, not sure when it was done last but with 230000km im more then willing to be safe and do it all at once. Also what things should i be looking to do to my car for performance?

so far...

Glasspack muffler, H&R springs, bilstien/boge shocks, 17x7 (forgot the brand aha) dunlop signature series 225/45/17 tires, sony stereo with 2 12" jackhammer subs in a ported box powered by 1200 watt jackhammer amp, 5% tint all around with 6" sunstrip.

now im getting into performance so let me know what i should do!! oh btw i dont wanna do an engine swap, i feel like i should keep original euro spec engine!! dont see many turbo'd m50b20s in ottawa lmao!!
