Lately I've noticed that my clutch has been slipping, sometimes under moderate throttle. I know my stock clutch is old and at the end of it's life. It was holding the power pretty good and I don't plan on doing any more serious mods, maybe stg 1 cams some day, but that's it. I can't justify spending the money for the exedy stg 1 kit and I like the idea of their OEM replacement as it comes with the same lightweight flywheel as the stg 1.

My question is, would the exedy OE replacement clutch hold my power or should I just suck it up and get the stage 1 kit? I know this topic has been on here before, but all I could find was people with stock cars wanting a replacement kit. Thanks!
Get the Exedy oem one. By the way the flywheels are different even thou they are both one piece. Thats what I'm going to replace mine w/ when I need a clutch. Don't forget to get a throw out bearing also.
