    The clutch is going out on my prelude which means I get to upgrade. Thinking about a stage 1 but not sure which one or brand i should buy. My car is a '94 prelude with an h23 soon to be VTEC. Other than my intake the engine is stock. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on which kind i should get. Not looking to spend more than about 350. Thanx

    Really would like to upgrade to at least a stage one system. Anyone got a better idea than OEM?

    ACT DOES NOT HAVE STAGES!!!!!!!!!

    i see people saying this everywhere
    why do people keep writing this shit ???????

    go to their website http://www.advancedclutch.com/

    there are absolutly no kits with any "stages" listed
    the kits they do have (for a 3rd gen integra) are:
    AI4-HDSS
    AI4-HDR4
    AI4-HDR6
    AI4-XTSS
    AI4-XTR4
    AI4-XTR6
    AI4-XXR4
    AI4-XXR6

    maybe its just me and maybe im the dumbass here ..... but i dont see anything that says "stage #"

    Look into an Exedy. They are the dominant clutch maker for Japanese cars both aftermarket and for the OEM style clutches. They generally have a good product from what i hear, and I've always liked the way they drive.

    if you're gonna replace the clutch, why don't you replace the flywheel too. i mean, you're gonna have it taken apart already. just kill 2 birds with one stone.

    Also just want to make sure it is the clutch before i buy a new one. Going to take the tranny off tomorrow to check it. Sometimes when i'm driving down the road my car wont go into any gear and i end up hitten the clutch a few times and trying a few gears before it kicks in. Also, from a dead stop, which is about the only way it will go into first, it shakes a little like the clutch is messed up. Anyway replaced the clutch slave cylinder and bled the line the other day and it didn't help. Pretty sure the master cylinder is working ok(no leaks or anything). Just wondering what u guys think and if teh clutch is worn out what ho look for tomorrow when i take off the tranny to know its worn out if it is the clutch.

    If that is shipped,it's OK.Mine was $225 shipped,step right above OEM,but it feels SO much better.There is actually pressure in the pedal,and it feels good when it gets a grip.
