I got my car back, Honda installed mugen clutch and Toda flywheel ( $137.00 install cost) and they did the bulletin thing on the trany. So far everything is perfect, the clutch is as smooth as factory but the engagement feels bit stronger. The flywheel WOW what a difference, now at low RPM the car is much easier to drive and seems like it has torque. I haven't driven it hard because of the break-in on all the new parts.

I'm wondering if the 2001's will have the updated clutch assembly.

Thanks Fito, It will be interesting to see how much my dealer will charge for the install when they do the tranny work.

Fito,

I'm considering doing the exact same thing you did when I get my car serviced for the 1-2 Shift Grind problem.

I called the Service Manager at the Honda Dealership where I purchased my car, and informed him of what I proposed to do; i.e., replace the flywheel with a Toda unit and the clutch with a Mugen unit at the same time they perform the Bulletin fix.

He said he would not risk voiding my warranty unless he received prior approval from the District/Regional Honda Corp. Service Manager.

Did you run into these concerns as well? If so, how did you address them?

Please advise. Thanks.
