Just my opinion but if you already have the tranny dropped a stage 1 Exedy is like $300. Might as well throw a new one in there
What would last longer if i were to buy a new stage 3 action clutch or a exedy stage 1 I have plans for turbo in 3-6 months

If you plan on turbo prolly the stage 3 although I’ve seen the exedy stage 1 hold turbo power just fine. Did you not enjoy your stage 3?

Went to get it resurfaced at action clutch in Los Angeles and they said basically my last clutch is shot. Bought a new stage 3 and resurfaced my lightweight flywheel

good job man !!! are you doing the job yourself ?
I actually just dropped off my transmission 1 hour ago to be rebuilt by Synchrotech. I opened it up and it just looks too overwhelming and I don’t have a press to get the gears off.

Update some pics....

1st and 2nd gear:
The infamous 2nd gear grind...compare to first gears locking teeth..2nd is starting to go..

Here it is circled. This is why I couldn’t get into 2nd. I even have upgraded cmc, bushings on shifter and on trans. Only thing if my trans still doesn’t work is my cables or shifter is shot but there’s just no way so I left it last in my list to check if that’s why I couldn’t get into gear. Anyways I’ve been planning on rebuilding my tranny for awhile.
