Ok, I posted and then deleted because I just realized you NEED a new clutch, not want one.

Basically; you're going to replace your clutch and you're going to mod your car; just go for a kevlar clutch. It's a bit expensive, but you'll never need a new one again.

Ever.

i gota Action 1KS clutch. it still has pretty light pedel feel, just a tad stiffer than stock, and the clutch engages real smooth, very similar to stock. so its really easy to drive still and being kevlar it should outlast the life of my car. put just about 1000 miles on it so far and im very happy with it. i bought it from these guys.
action clutches

as for install, id set aside the better part of a day. took us about 10 hours or so total. just using floor jacks and what not. but we did have some air tools so that helped.

what r the advatages of the stage 1 clutches?? is it worth the extra money
See, I'm not understanding your question. Advantages when placed against a STOCK? Lasts longer, less chance it's gonna blow.

Advantages against a stage 3? Cheaper.

check out exedy single plate ceramic clutch kits. the kits come with a throwout bearing too. benefits over stock would be higher clamping force, reduced slippage, higher heat capacity in demanding conditions. 1/2 thickness discs will improve your shift time by making it easier for you to shift.

also resurface or replace your flywheel at time of installation, also if your kit lacks a throw out bearing, you should replace that too while your inside.

i have a stage 2 clutch, you can really feel the clutch engage on shifts. i blew my throwout bearing like 2 months after i got it. I was so use to driving on stock clutches. now i have a ticking till clutch pressed in sometimes, and a squeal between shifts ;[ so i will definately be spending the extra money this time around for higher quality (kevlar)
