Question about 2005 Honda Civic
How much HP can a stock transmission handle? What is a good clutch to use?
It depends on how high your reving the engine. if your at the stock a3 rev limit (6900-7000 rpms), between 400 and 450whp. the shaft the gears are on starts to flex and gears separate, causing minimal engagement, which rounds off the edges of the gears.
with a almost stock a3 tranny (stock + quaife LSD), 415whp and 9000rpm rev-limit, it took 1 good race at the drags to damage the 1st and 2nd gear syncros. after a few more races the gears were moderately damaged too.
as far as a good clutch, if you can afford it, i would recommend the FX600 from ClutchMasters.
