Hi guys

bought a civic type s gt 2.2 (45,000 miles) the other day and didnt realise a stage 1 remap would make the car a lot more responsive but my question is will the car need a new clutch after the remap i only want the remap stage 1 not 2 as i believe i will defo need a new clutch with stage 2.

what clutches (uprated) do you guys use and price

Also anything else i should be looking out for?

Hi Mate & welcome to the site.
there are loads of threads on this if you have a look around the engines/transmission section. In answer to your question yes, definitely.
Clutch first, then remap. Stage 1 seems to be the popular one for more performance whilst still retaining decent fuel economy.

I've got a stage 1 map, and (fingers crossed) I've not had any clutch issues at all. I believe the best option for an aftermarket clutch is probably the CG racing, from what I've read. Some people went with Kestrel but there have been major issues reported with a few. Honda are now offering an uprated standard clutch (revised, apparently), part number ending in 325 I believe? But still not clear yet whether it's made any difference at all.

But, as mentioned, it's all been discussed in detail already, there are a few very good threads on the subject around. Relic has kindly linked one above that makes for good reading.
