[edit: March 1st, 2004]

The "How to install a clutch on a G3 Integra" article is finished. Check it out. If you have any specific questions regarding this article, please post them in this thread. Thank you.




Within the next two weeks I will be attempting to install my new ACT HDSS Clutch and Integra Type-R Flywheel. In the process, I'm going to also be installing some ES motor mount inserts since it will be the perfect opertunity with everything out of my way.

Within this thread I plan to document the whole process and basically make it into a thread-based tutorial. I will be perodically taking pictures while I work and posting them up with a discription on what I'm doing.


ere's what I'll be installing:

ACT Heavy Duty Pressure Plate


ACT Performance Street Disc


ITR Flywheel



First things first, I need to get my flywheel resurfaced. Since I'm going doing that, I figured I'd weigh it first.





The ITR flywheel (33k miles) weighs approximately 15.5lbs. I'll reweigh it once I get it resurfaced.

The adventure has just begun! Feel free to discuss and ask questions about anything you see in this thread.

i have the same plate and disc but i have the act 12.5lbs flywheel. Really, the clutch didnt make a difference at all!! only the pressure plate by adding more pressure on the clutch pedal. as for the clutch grabing, it feels like stock. maybe little better but if i knew this, i wouldnt have boght the Streetdisc. I would get the 'next up'(4 puck?) plate if i had to do it again. newayse if you do decide to put it in, do tell me what you think.

If you went with a 4 puck you would either be full on or full off as far as whether or not the clutch was getting

race clutches are definately not practical for street. I've driven my buddy's s2000 with a race clutch.... its hard not to stall. you have to do a lot of quick, light feathering each time you start from a stand still. i actually wouldn't mind one in my car also, i prefer performance over practicality on street. then again, its probably not as safe, but oh well..

I drove ryougazilla's car not long after installing the same setup (clutch-wise). It definately doesn't feel like stock, much firmer and grabbier. A hard shift of mine was enough to break a fuseholder for his stereo under the hood!

...still feel bad about that... but at least he's rich

Also, where did you get your clutch and how much did you pay?

I would like to do pretty much the same thing as you, but I want a tighter geared transmission to drop in at the same time (probably B16A2).

Welp, I just droped off my flywheel to get resurfaced. It will be ready for me to pick up in 30minutes. Tomarrow I play to reweigh it using the same scale as before.

I also got my ES polyurethane motor mounts in the mail a few days ago. Basically my dad and I are planning on knocking this sucka' out this weekend (hopefully). I'm going to charge the batteries in my camera in preperation.

As promissed...




From having my flywheel resurfaced, they (Modesto Clutch and Brake) took off approximately 0.5lbs. My flywheel's total weight is now a hair under 15lbs.



Look at her. All nice and shiny.

Question: What's the gain on the ITR flywheel?

So it's just weight reduction. Thanks.

No. It has nothing to do with weight reduction. It has to do with increasing acceleration and transit responce. I suggest you conduct a search because there are endless threads talking about the performance of lighter flywheels.

Thanks. I didn't mean to sound lazy. Good luck with the project, it would make a really helpful article.

I got a late start today by not having any free jackstands to use, so I didn't get as much done as I wished. I plan to continue this project tomarrow morning.

Following the directions in the helm manual, here's what I've accomlished so far...

[edited out... refer to the article for "how to" information]


Overview:
Basically everything went pretty smooth; I didn't have too much trouble. The only things that gave me a little grief were the top tranny bolts and the three 14mm nuts on the A-pipe. I needed a breaking bar with a nice long combination wrench on the end to break them loose.
