    If you use Honda, get the ITR setup. If not then Clutchmasters is good. While you are in there get an aluminum flywheel, it is worth the money ans easier to do when you are already changing the clutch.

    Clutchmasters is the only company that I have never heard anyone bitch about quality. I know many people running a CM clutch and none of them are dissapointed. I opted for the ITR setup but only because I was already buying $700 of parts for my LSVTEC that I got a hell of a deal on it.

    I heard heard exactly that only reverse the brands (so they had their ACT blow up before it was broken in). I guess it depends on who you talk to. My ITR clutch is holding up great. If you are staying NA, you can't go wrong with Honda parts. :)

    heres the deal, clutchmaster builds their own clutches, ACT are reworked clutches. The founder of ACT actually worked at clutchmaster before starting his company. I just put a stage 4 clutchmaster in when I did my swap. Really stage three is all thats needed but the stage four is rated to put down about 14% more power. I really like it aside from the studder starts but if you go with stage 3 you won't run into this problem

    For street driving (I don't know if the Stage 3 or 4 is made of a ceramic) stay away from the ceramic material unless you need it. It eats flywheels bad. Kevlar or Organic is the way to go for street use.

    The CM stage 3 is a carbon/kevlar and it isn't a 4 puck! The CM stage 4 is a 4 puck!

    4 puck will be more expensive! With the 4 puck you will need some serious mods to take full advantage of it! Also the 4 pucks aren't very streetable!

    yea... stage 3 is 6 puck and thats the most aggressive i would use for streetability... 4 puck is geared toward the track whereas the 6 puck is for both. :) however if your going for just a track car... hell, go with the 4 puck.
