Rep: 10 Konakona is on a distinguished road
Default OEM vs Aftermarket...what do I do? x.x

Okie, so my dealer phoned me today and told me my clutch is utterly toast and my flywheel is too. Dunno why but whateves...quickly before I call them back, can anyone tell me if it would be a better idea to get a new OEM clutch and flywheel or should I order aftermarket parts and have them put them in? I was thinking one of those heavy duty clutch kits from ACT or something, and a ACT streetlite flywheel, but I am wondering if anyone knows for sure if I should do the aftermarket or OEM thingy? It is a 2005 4dr with D17A2. Thankies!

Just go OEM on the clutch, if you want a lighter flywheel, go for it.

I haven't Dynoed it yet, but I'll estimate around 280-300RWHP.

But if there is a chance to go aftermarket, i say do it. Im not suggesting a twin plate race clutch, just a full face aftermarket clutch. They will be more durable, and often times give a better pedal feel that an OEM for the same price or even less money. So why not?

the aftermarket will cost more but would really be a waste of money unless you have more than mild bolt ons
