Hi,

My name is Khiri from the Western Massachusetts area. I recently purchased a 2010 si in May. So this is my introduction post and i also already need a clutch so i was hoping for suggestions. I was looking at the basic OEM Exedy clutch that Advanced Auto Parts sell for like $350. Would that be a suitable clutch for my si? One of my friends suggested that i get a stage 2 clutch, but i feel like they're just more of a pain in the **** as daily driver. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

For a stock Si, I'd say Honda OE or equivalent unless you plan on modifying beyond the usual bolt-ons.

Thanks. Pretty sure that's what i'm going to go with along with the OEM flywheel.

It's more than just a pain for driving. The stock Master Cylinder (MC) already is a little under powered for the pressure plate for speed shifting. As well as the clutch pedal housing is tack welded with two tack welds and tends to rip over time with the stiffer stage 2 pressure plates.

My 2007 Si I bought from my factory trained mechanic friend already had the clutch pedal replaced due to the competition clutch stage 2 pressure plate and clutch disk. I've gotten used to the stiffer feel and daily driving isn't too bad but I still need to swap the push rod from my MC and put it onto the em1 SiR MC I bought. I've read it's a better upgrade that isn't so harsh on the clutch pedal over the Hybrid Racing MC.

Really though, sticking to the Exedy Stage 1 (OEM equivalent) clutch kit will give you solid daily driving and be easier on all your components.

Do a little google searching on MC upgrade and also on clutch pedal reinforcement for 2006-2011 Honda Civic Si and you will likely come across a fair amount of information about all of this.

The other upgrade for these Si's besides Hondata Flash Pro is the Hybrid Racing Timing Chain Tensioner. It's my understanding it's a necessity if you upgrade your cams, valve springs and retainers. I've been thinking about doing the tensioner anyway even though the motor itself is still stock just for the peace of mind of a superior designed tensioner.

I'm not sure if anyone else has run anything other than Honda MTF in their gear box. It would be interesting to see some feedback.

Today I drained out the Honda MTF from my gear box and I added half a tube of Molyslip Manual Transmission Additive (molybdenum) and GM Synchromesh Friction Modified.

The shifting is much smoother even in high rpm (8000+) shifts. I'm curious to know if the molybdenum is helpful for carbon synchros like it is for metal (brass, steel, aluminum, etc).

I would use Torco MTF but getting it here is a bit expensive and time consuming. I've had great success with GM Synchromesh Friction Modified with Molyslip manual additive but usually in the older manual trannies with brass synchros. Also I can get GM's fluid at any GM dealership so access is easy and quick.

Try checking out rockauto.com see if they have a clutch for you and if they do, I am pretty sure it'll be at a decent price. You may also want to consider a new flywheel or having your current one resurfaced.
