I have I/E and hopefully a new flywheel some of my friends run stage 5 clutchmasters in their civic, and they said that the ACT isn't any good. I just wanted to see what everyone else had to say about it.

ACT uses stock clutch w/ upgraded pressure plate for their lowest priced onez. (just somethin to keep in mind) My ACT kept slippin so I had to upgrade it to HKS twin... ACT advertised for something higher hp than my engine... but..did no good to me... I probably got defect or somethin..

Clutchmasters are more reliable I think

i dont think so...but like some1 had said before if you ever plan on boosting your GTS, its not gonna grab when it spools up, your just gonna slip...ive seen multiple cars with multiple makes of motors do the exact same thing with ACT line of clutches...the only reason the ACT is so cheap is because they only give you the pleasure plate plate believe, dont quote me on that tho confused dunno, but i would go with Clutchmasters man...just personal experience
