    No sense getting pissed at the car for your PO burning out the clutch - the stock clutch is very sturdy IMO.

    The most common recommendation is an exedy (OEM) replacement but you don't have to get it at the dealer.

    Dude i just had the car for a couple of hours.... the guy that sold it to me obviously left some things out and I'm very upset, driver side mirror being cracked, all bumpers scartched, rear brakes being shot, etc... etc... everything in this car has been done except for the so called clutch... and last but,, not least the dude was a dip ****!

    Exactly. Probably a good coat of wax hid those busted mirrors though!

    the guy is paying a fat portion of the clutch.. does a clutch really make that much of a difference? will my car be more faster?

    If the clutch is slipping badly there will be no comparison.

    New clutch fixes slipping clutch. More power connected to the drivetrain. Faster? No.
