I would send them an email and ask them what brand of clutch they will send for a prelude. They have an Exedy logo at the bottom of the page, and they have a pretty good reputation.

I have the "Stage 1" (basically a stock replacement) exedy, and I'm quite happy with it. Although if you're going turbo you should probably get something with a little more holding power.

well i have a "stage I" exedy clutch and the pressure plate does specify 35% increase clamping power over OEM. so they are not exactly OEM replacement parts.
but i love it so far it feels great and strong on the new flywheel also.

ive heard that the stok clutch was fine for 7 psi in boost making about 190wtrq. Mario told me cause he was running a stock clutch. I have to get a good clutch that will be able to handle the torque im putting out by the end of may so any help will be appreciated. Im searching like a mad man for a possible clutch replacemnet and i keep getting mixed answeres about the clutch stages for a turbo setup and if the stock one will cope with it. My dad who is a transmission specialist thinks that a LUK stock replacment clutch will withstand that torque.

Yah like syclone said the Exedy does say it holds 35% over stock, I got mine from http://www.clutchcityonline.com for a really good price (I don't remember exactly how much).

It will probably be fine if your careful, but I would just want something a little stronger myself if I was going turbo, mostly because I know how I would drive it if I had a turbo, :lol:

Yeah i called the guy and told him the year of the car and everything and he said yeah thats the one they have in stage 1. So i asked him how good is it and he said they were really good a think its just going to be like a stock one i really don't mind cuz i really need a clutch now. Mine really sucks it slips all ready at around 90mph it wont go no more

We just installed the stage II street from them (EZclutch). I didnt see any type of stamp on it so i dont know who makes it. SO far so good but its still in the break in. The bearing actually seems better than OEM and there is more clamping which you can feel. The clutch plate is nice and tapererd to for and easy install of the tranny. Cant say its good or bad at this point, its too new.....time/miles will tell. There is not that many manufacturers of clutch parts, most parts stores sell the exact same thing with different names....Autozone.Oreily's/Advance/NAPA I'm sure this applies to Ebay part sellers also.

Anyone ever try the grip force ones? Just curious. It's gotta be a "you get what you pay for" kinda situation. They've got clutch and fly combos for $300 with fidanza fly's. Seems waaaay too cheap. But tempting.
