depends which one you want. Research for reviews of each clutch

TRD
RPS
ACT

I have the JDM TRD clutch kit. I got it at my local dealership. I paid too much for it. Although I love the way it performs.

I got my stock clutch swapped with a JDM TRD clutch kit at about 60,000. I have 69,000 miles now and it is working great!

I noticed it slipped a lot when i would shift at high rpms. I would also require more gas at stops to get moving.

If you are thinking about tunign the car you should really get a "race" Clutch. The stock one will not handle all the power if you are thinking about makint it more powerful grin

here is the thing...i have 51,000 on the car and have never had a problem...today i was sitting in the drive-thru and pushed in the clutch and i could hear what sounded like the clutch plates rubbing together...it doesnt slip or anything it just makes this noise everytime i push in the clutch...when i let it out it makes a 'clank' sound...really odd and hard to explain...i hope to be getting turbo before the end of the year so i need a new clutch anyways...just wondering which ones are good and where to find them...thanks guys...j
