Default New Clutch, OEM or aftermarket?

Getting some work done on my car, had to take the whole engine out and upon doing so found that the clutch was knackered!
just after some advice on the best replacment. Is is best to stick with original honda parts or is there any good alternatives?
Thanks

I believe most stick with the honda friction plate but upgrade the spring plate to another one. I'm sure others will be about to confirm

OEM unless you are using FI. Get from Si at Hendy or Cox Motor parts for the best prices.

Steer clear of Exedy.

The holy grail of street setups I believe is the OEM friction plate with an ACT H021 heavy duty pressure plate - but seems quite hard to get them this side of the pond.

Apparently Honda do fitted clutch for £675 including VAT & a 12 month warranty... Might interest some. Mine is booked in, I'll let you know how it goes.

I went for Comp stage 2 on mine a few weeks ago. I'm really impressed, good feel, nice bite but lighter in traffic. Win win for me. Also it's crazy cheap on (£260) on Demon Tweeks, so win win win!

That's a pretty good price, makes me think they forgot to ad the S2000 to the exception list on cars

Scratch that. Mine was booked in with Honda for clutch on Monday. Just got a call saying they can't uphold there price and it will be towards the £1000 mark. Well that's not a fixed price then hahaha. Apparently only some Honda's do the fixed price but they can increase the price based on there labour costs.... don't know if that's the definition of fixed price lol
