    hey guys, im trying to finish up my turbo gsr into a 98 civic ex project but it feels like the clutch isnt engaging. i put it in gear, and it rolls forward just a little bit (or backwards) but upon releasing the clutch all the way, it just sits there and makes a whining noise. (not real loud) any ideas?

    TOO MUCH HORSE POWA!!

    On a more serious note though, its probably the throwout bearing if its a new clutch. If its a stock clutch, it just might be time to replace it.
