So im @ 99k miles and i can feel it slipping. I've been researching clutch kits and flywheel combos and i cant come to a final decision. I keep reading that the DC5R flywheel is the one to get and the Exedy stage 1 clutch kit is also the clutch to get. I just dont know which Exedy Clutch will pair up with the DC5R flywheel?

EXEDY Globalparts Corporation | High Performance and OEM Clutches and Flywheels
OEM replacement or stage 1?

Are these wrong? Do i have to look into buying a RSX clutch kit if im running the DC5R flywheel?

I was also looking at Clutchmasters FX300/350 but im reading alot of mixed reviews. Im not looking to make my TSX a racecar. Right now I only have a CAI, Hi flow cat, greddy evo 2. I think maybe a header and LSD to be done with it.

ANY input would be grateful as im looking to purchase parts like NOW.

Thanks in advance everyone.

You'll need a clutch kit made for the RSX Type S to use that flywheel

Are they the same exact part or still different?

The clutches are the same, but they tell you to use a flywheel from a RSX Type S if you have a TSX/RSX Base flywheel

Will the TSX Clutch STG 1#08806 fit the DC5R flywheel?

No

Or do i need the RSX clutch STG 1 with the same part #08806 to match the DC5R flywheel??

Yes

A little redundent, but I wanted to answer each of your questions :)

I run the 2-800-ST with the Exedy OEM replacement for the RSX-S/Si, part # KHC10.

I wrote a review some time back, if you're interested.
http://www.tsxclub.com/forums/1st-g...sions-competition-clutch-11-5lb-flywheel.html

With your mods and any standard bolt-ons in the future, the KHC10 will more than suffice, as well as being very comfortable to daily.

I remember reading your review a while back and saw you switched out the gears. Some good info in there. I think I'm leading towards an exert clutch and either cc fw or the dc5r. One thing that has me confused is the shop I got a quote for said $750 fir the clutch and flywheel job which I completely understand. But then I also asked for the I installation of an LSD and quoted me an additional $600 for the install because it'll take 6 hours to open the tranny. But if I'm doing a clutch job isn't the tranny already Dow ??

It takes 2 minutes to open the trans and another 15 to install the LSD and reassemble the trans. 6 hours....lol.:

EDIT: Get some more quotes at other locations. I'd do your LSD for an extra $100 if I were the shop/tech doing the clutch. And that's just due to business and shop rate. Working on a friends car, you'd buy me some Arby's for lunch lol.

Really sounds like they're double-quoting you on R&R labor time and rates. Explain that to them and tell them you know its a very simple install that takes no more than 30 minutes.
I guess you are underestimating this to show how simple it is to do, but if you want to do this properly and check the clearences after putting LSD in, it will take you much longer then 30 minutes. This doesn't take into account most likely scenario that they will snap off all the tranny bolts to begin with, after which Acura will tell them that they are back-ordered on those and to check back in 3 months.

I'd make sure they know what they are doing before letting them touch TSX tranny and I'd pay a bit extra for that...

Regards,

Nino

No, I'm not underestimating it at all. I do this on a daily basis at work. There are other tolerances to check besides the LSD if you:re swapping out main and countershafts as well. Having the knowledge and tools required, swapping the internals and checking lash clearance as well as differential and shaft shimming takes less than 30 minutes. Being that we're speaking about a trans shop doing the work, they should have tolerances available as well as the tools required so it shouldn't be any different.

As far as the reverse threaded bolts, they're all marked as reverse thread on the heads.

Good looking out though , most people aren't aware of that information. +rep to ya on that one thumbsup:

Well the shop is Exelerate Performance who quoted me on those prices. I live in ny so that's a bit of a drive. I just wanna get my clutch n fw done right. I wanted to do the LSD but for another $600 just to add LSD while the tranny is down I think ill wait. Gotto get a couple more quotes.

Excellerate in CT? He knows what he's doing. The LSD quote was probably an accident. I'm also assuming you're providing the LSD and he isn't? Just call him up. Excellerate is a very reputable vendor on the other forums. Also, an LSD is quite amazing. If you have the option to do it within your budget, now is definitely the time! Best of luck :thumbsup:

Okay so I'm back again. Had some money issues so I didn't get a chance to replace the clutch but I got the money now and I am in need of a shop in the NYC area. If anyone knows a reputable shop PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Let me know. I need some work done. Clutch n Fly/ clutch & slave master cylinder/valve adjustment/ oil & MTF change/ spark plugs/ new fluids. Quite a bit of work but no shop that I know of with personal experience.
