    i have two options.

    ITR or Exedy.

    exedy used to be Dakin which was a very trusted japanese manufacturer of clutches.. the organic exedy clutch holds 33% more than the stock ITR clutch.

    So what do you all think.... i'm thinking about going with the exedy clutch.

    And i CAN NOT get any other ones, so no i dont want to hear about ACT or clutchmasters... those are my only TWO options.

    I don't have any experience swaping clutches, but I'd say exedy just for the fact that it holds 1/3 more.

    exedy was formerly DAIKIN, which made clutches for like 99% of japanese auto manufacturers...


    a little fun reading for all:

    http://www.coximport.com/exedy/q&a.html


    http://www.coximport.com/exedy/

    personally i trust items manufactured in japan over anything engineered in the united states anyday...

    our cars are japanese... so why not make the clutch japanese toO?

    and not to mention the 33% stronger than a stock ITR thing .

    exedy clutches are VERY nice.

    many of my friends run them in their 190 whp cars.

    www.clutchcityonline.com

    they do a lot of business on honda-tech and they're located in tampa i think**
