    Well eversince it got cold, my clutch begun to slip (rpms shoot up when downshift or accelerate hard) so im curious whats the cheapest place i can get it replaced at?

    Oh yeah are EXEDY clutch kits any good? I saw bunch of em on eBay and theyre fairly cheap.

    check out this site, the sell SPEC clutches for our cars for pretty cheap. I also looked at the Exedy ones on eBay but they seem to be basically a stock replacement, but check out this site, they seem to have decent deals, http://www.enjukuracing.com/

    Well I had the same thing happen with mine. I took it to a shop to get it done. Didn. want to attempt it on my own. anyway, I got the exedy Clutch kit. Good buy and good clutch. It is better than stock. I think like 40 %. It all depends on what you want to do to your car. If you running stock trubo and aren't a race fiend then the exeddy is the best deal. BTW they are the largest supplier of Clutches in the Japanese market. We are talking Silvias and Skylines. So it can't be bad. It is not desinged for racing. A little street playing is fine but track or strip use is not recommended. Just don't be stupid and get a stage 4 racing clutch clutch for a GS. I know someone who did that and spent too much money for it and messed up the install as he had some V8 guy help him. Took them two weeks to get the job done and he then had to take into a shop to fix what they screwed up. HE said something about extra pieces after the install.
