I dont see any point in debating this, as most of the people that would say the ea82 flywheel is fine to use have no proof that it lasts a significant amount of time or miles last time I checked. At the same time there haven't been any reports of problem either. I was slightly tempted to try making some custom bolts from ea82 bolts just sizing them down at the point that they go into the crank....not easy though.
I personally went with the ea81 flywheel. (and ea82 clutch disc, ea81 pressure plate, ea82 throwout bearing and the pilot is the same either way)
Your assumption is right on the 3.70 except for one thing. If you do get the 3.70 trans that means you are going to have to use turbo spline axles and get them custom made. If you go with a 3.90 trans you can use ea81 axles like you already have. www.cvaxles.com charges 110 per axle as you have no core. They made them in about 3 weeks.

DONT ASK ME WHY I DONT GET IT.
Subaru was so wise with interchangability of its parts other than this.
I highly recommend getting the 5spd kit from Jerry (Bratsrus1). You will have to decide between FT4wd and part time before ordering the kit though as the trans mount block is different.
