    Performance clutch upgrade for AA3

    Hi all. I'm looking for suggestions on upgrading my stock AA3 (K24 honda + 6-speed + s/c) clutch. The stock clutch cannot handle the torque - clutch slip is very evident in WOT. My questions are:
    1. Which clutch kit is good upgrade?
    2. Do I need a complete kit with flywheel?
    3. Do I need to upgrade or change the stock clutch master cylinder?
    4. Does engine and trans need to be completely dropped from the car for the clutch change?

    It's a PITA but Richard Buckingham (on the forum) and I just dropped his transmission without removing the engine. It's a tight fit but totally doable with enough patience and two people.

    Exedy is a good supplier. They make the OEM clutch for Honda as well as upgraded units.
    You will need a new clutch assembly and clutch disc. A new flywheel is not required!
    You will not need to change the master cylinder or flywheel. What you have will work.
    I think you'll need a stage 2 clutch kit with the supercharger. (I have a stage 1.5 Exedy with my engine --88x90.7--I make about 280hp NA)

    Thanks, guys. I checked with Vit (my tuner) and an exedy stage 1 would work easy with the my set up.
