Clutch for H22A

Hello,

I have to change clutch on my prelude…so I was looking around and found this one, which is really not so expensive: F1 RACING STAGE 1 CLUTCH KIT HONDA H-SERIES H22A

Any experience with this one?

(I know that OEM or Exedy stage 1 would be better but they are just too expensive at the moment.)

I agree. My opinion is, if your going to upgrade might as well save the money till you can ge the good parts, then that way you dont have to spend the extra money for the not so good part and still have to buy the good one.

If it is something that breaks and needs to be replaced quickly, then just do a stock replacement, and upgrade later.

Exedy clutch kits are cheaper?

EXEDY DAIKIN OE STANDARD COMPLETE CLUTCH PRO-KIT SET | eBay

Don't order that one in specific because I don't know if it's the right one, I was just grabbing an example.

Re: Clutch for H22A

F*ck F1 Racing Clutch Kit. I got one when I first dropped in my H22. First time at the track, the F1 Racing clutch overheated on me and wouldn't let me go into second gear which I got stuck in Nuetral and coasted down the drag strip.

I went with an Exedy Stage 1 clutch and have never look back. Do it right, Do it once!

My brother had an Exedy OEM clutch in his JDM GSR and does not have any problem like I had with my F1 Racing. F1 Racing way cheaper quality compared to Exedy OEM. Can't withstand high heat.

Re: Clutch for H22A

I agree with almost everything you guys wrote!

But…I don’t plan to upgrade and I don’t visit race tracks. I just want daily drive clutch… that’s the reason why I looked at these “low budget” clutch kits.

Bottom line…according to all posts I found and your opinions it’s still better to buy bullet proof kit such as exedy.

THX!

They give you torque capactity on the actual clutch. This appears even on eBay...

Duh, stage 1 is one up from OEM.

Stage 1 from eBay exedy information:

"Torque Capacity: 249 ft-lbs"

Stage 2 from eBay exedy information:

"Torque Capacity: 282 ft-lbs"

I love research. You know, if you wouldn't have irritated me before, I wouldn't be making you look like an idiot.

You still because it's pretty well known. If you would search, you would find the information you need. As the stages go higher, so does the stiffness of the pedal. Most people say stage 1 is bearable for DD, but much beyond that kills your leg. So bear in mind the more power it can handle, the more torture it will be to your leg.

Please wash my spoon off when you're done using it.

Re: Clutch for H22A

Hey guys,

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help about choosing right clutch! It took my some time, but I found an OE Exedy clutch for ridiculous price

I have additional question about break in time - organic discs need whats called settling time because of the materials used to make them, if I'm correct? I guess that anywhere from 300-500 miles will do for break in?

But what exactly does this “break in time” mean? I found this while researching:

"...You can redline it or give it full throttle all you want, but when shifting gears you can't do a hard hookup into the next gear. Push the clutch in and let it grab slow.....no hard shifting..."

Do you agree with that?

Here're pictures

Re: Clutch for H22A

500 miles should be good, when i replaced my clutch i went 600 miles or so and after that it felt perfect
