    IMO, Exedy and ACT are too close to call. If I remember correctly, I think ACT uses Exedy disc (someone correct me if i'm wrong) I like my Exedy Street Clutch, it never gets hot, it's last me a lot longer than a stock clutch, and the pedal feel isn't bad. It's a little stiffer than stock but not by much. I haven't used either companies flywheels so I can't speak on them. I thought I told you this in your other thread lol

    I've never heard of ACT using Exedy discs... I doubt that they do.

    I've run through two ACT HD/SS clutch setups, and I loved them. The HD/SS is strong enough to run just about whatever power you'll use on the street, and there's no reason to go any higher unless you're going with some crazy turbo setup pushing 400whp or more.

    I've also had the Fidanza flywheel. It's a 7.5 pounder, so pretty comparable to the ACT flywheel. No problems on the street, and it's very easy to drive.

    ACT does not use Exedy disks. Exedy uses disks which are manufactured by Daikin, and ACT manufactures their own disks, I believe.

    I've ran an Exedy clutch/ACT flywheel setup on 3 cars in the past, and had zero problems or complaints. In the CRX, I'll be running an Exedy clutch/Fidanza flywheel, but only because the Fidanza was cheaper than an ACT flywheel, and I'm short on cash.

    Exedy clutch/ACT prolite FTW

    hmm... I thought that I heard something about ACT using Exedy Disc for their OEM replacement clutches that they sell or something like that. Maybe it was another company.

    what would be the difference in the street lite and pro lite ACT fly wheels.

    and no i will not be going to or over 400 hp.....more like 300 at best and that would be later on anyways. I am still unsure on which one to use ...........And on the model of the clutch ACT=HDSS and which one of the Exedy would be comparible to the ACT.

    thanks for all your help this far

    No, by that i meant honda trusts them, and honda's oem stuff is good shit, that's why you run a better exedy clutch with more mods.

    thats not 100% accurate
    http://www.advancedclutch.com/proveit/tech...etterdesign.asp

    ok
    ACT completely makes their own B series clutches
    so people please stop spreading this bullshit about ACT using stock or exedy or any other clutches

    i dont think so.......because an oem clutch will hold some good hp #....but the hold just wont last....but for what they are made for they are more than adequate....just like with ANY oem clutch.and they last a long time...

    at least they accept the use oem parts


    but exedy is a personal pref...

    tip....buy what you think is good....

    I still want to see an Exedy clutch hold a TRUE 300 HP all day long without slippage...sure it will work, but your going to lose a decent amount of HP to the wheels with slipage...there pressure plates are just not made for that kind of power...buy what fits your budget and what works for you..I am just giving you all my honest opinon..I have used all sorts of different clutches through the years and will never again buy an Exedy clutch....every one of my cars is running a ACT HDSS setup, full organic street/strip disk with HD Pressure plate to match....flywheel all depends on you...I like the ACT's, but have used Fidanza and Aasco also with no problems
