You'll have to replace your clutch. What's most likely happening is your plates are getting worn down and they can't grab anymore, so you need some fresh ones.

Again, check out what Exedy has, great stuff and their prices are decent.

Re: my prelude is acting weird help!

+1 Clutch dood. You don't have t3h VTAK yo so you only need a clutch with like a 600 ft-lb torque capacity. If you had da Hdeuce deuce you would need a clutch with like t3h
1000ft-lb of torque capacity. I'm 16!!!!

No seriously, separating clutch.

Re: my prelude is acting weird help!

Nope, your ecu isn't causing this problem :-) Stage one clutch should be good for you, unless you're planning on putting out some big numbers in the near future, that should be fine for you. Stage 2-3 would be overkill.

Yeah man as long as you are N/A with an H series a stage 1 clutch will be plenty.

Re: my prelude is acting weird help!

Stage 1 clutch.

Exedy stage 1 clutch is an incredible little clutch. I have one in my lude and it works wonderful.

As a matter of fact I have the DSport July Issued sitting right in front of me no joke. Its the issue with the "Clutch Buyers Guide"

The only 2 that I recommend is Competition clutch (The most widely used clutches in pro drag HONDAS, which you dont need. And exedy which someone told me hondas come from the factory stock with)

The ones that they said the best shiit about were

ACT
Exedy
Cusco
Fidanza

there were others, but reading after reading each paragraph or so, these sounded like the best ones.
