Default K20A Type R Clutch Question

Hey everyone! I have a 2005 civic SI with a K20A Type R from an 03 Honda Integra. The motor was imported from Japan 10 or so years ago now. The motor/tranny are bone stock aside from intake and the Hondata K-Pro computer if that counts.
Right now I am having clutch issues. The car was parked for 3 years and since I got it back on the road the clutch has been slipping minimally. The pedal seems softer than before as well but I have checked the master and slave over and over and there are no visible leaks. I have also gravity bled the hydraulic system many. many times. The thing with the clutch slip is it doesn't always happen. I drove it a bit a month ago and it was to the point where I would cruise in 4th gear @ 3000rpm and when I went WOT the RPM would jump to 5.5-6k without the power going to the wheels. Today I couldn't get it to slip AT ALL until I got into 5th gear at 2000RPM then at WOT it would jump to 4k or so. To me it doesn't make sense that I can no longer get it to slip in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th at all..? With the e-brake on and the car parked I can drop the clutch in 5th gear and the motor instantly dies. Also has no problem keeping the wheels spinning going into 3rd when you really get on it.
Basically right now I'm not 100% confident its the clutch, but I cant see it being the master or slave without any visual leaks.
Today I looked into pricing out a clutch kit through work (I am a first year Honda Tech at a local dealer) and our parts manager had no idea what to order. Will a clutch kit for a north american RSX Type-S K20 work with my flywheel??
Thanks so much for any help!
