Clutch Noises after Replacement

I recently replaced the whole clutch in my 05 WRX and I started getting this scraping type noise from it. I bought a competition clutch kit and turns out the FW is a LWFW. Apparently it’s very common for that noise to go on but it still bothers me.***g57j0Y
(This accurately describes the sound)

So usually the noise comes in at 1st and 2nd gear. 3rd it starts to go away. 4th and 5th nothing. I noticed tho if I let off really slow it’s a smoother transition into first gear. Also, going up on hills the noise is there. Oddly in reverse nothing really happens when I’m backing out. Miraculously tho I drove it 5 hours and managed to get home safe but it was a very noisy ride hitting every stop light. Can I get some inputs about how common this noise really is? Is it basically having to re learn your car now having to rev higher than normal?

how heavy is the flywheel?

i read anything under 12lbs will cause flywheel chatter
Comp clutch said it’s 13.9lbs. It’s lightweight tho. Like I said ppl with lightweight flywheels been saying it’s normal for that chatter in low RPMs and idk it just sounds so sketchy
