so I just ordered a new exedy pro clutch kit for my base 5th Gen and after purchasing it I realized somehow I paid for the one that said it was for an F23 sohc accord. I'm using the Competition Clutch h22 lightened flywheel does anybody know if the F23 clutch works with the h22? I know a lot of the H and f series stuff is interchangeable but can somebody please tell me that this is one of them, im freaking out! Thanks guys

do you know this first hand because I'm hearing and reading other but can't seem to get a definitive answer.

If the Exedy Pro-Kit is the OEM replacement, then they are different according to the Exedy site.

The clutch disc size is 219mm for the Prelude and 210mm for the F23aX Accord

Well i just got the clutch and the disc is 219 mm and everything else looks to be identical And the pressure plate bolts right up to my competition clutch flywheel! The only thing i can think of that could be different is clamp load. gripforce has this clutch advertised to fit All H22 H23 F22 F23 Engines, I don't know maybe I'll try contacting Exedy because I can't seem to find any Stats on their OEM replacement clutches only their stage series racing clutches. I'm kind of on a budget and don't want to pay for return shipping just to end up getting the same damn thing again.

so I wrote an email to gripforce yesterday who I bought this clutch from and asked them if there is any differences between this clutch And the h22 clutch and this is what they said.


Hello lapoi.eri,

I have checked on all the parts on the kit individually and they both use the same parts such as the pressure plate and clutch disc. They are the same kit, but just labeled different from Exedy.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

that's obviously the first thing I did to try to determine if they were the same or different, I don't think your fully understanding how i was getting misinformation Cuz the two so-called different clutches with different part numbers both had a "interchange" part number that was a match. It turns out just because 2 boxes have 2 different numbers on them doesn't mean the product inside is not the same exact thing. There actually made from the same parts, material on the same machine using the same pressures, loads, tolerances, excetera... Just labled with different numbers By exedy for some odd reason i don't know Why for sure. but After haven talked to a few people that Are clutch specialist or exedy dealers, I'm convinced they're the same exact thing.
