    Just a general question as the topic states. I currently have a EP3 Clutch Master Cylinder and with the OEM slave cylinder. I want to know IF it would be beneficial to change the slave to a KTuned slave or another version OEM slave? What's your input guys?
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I'm looking for a little advice about my clutch master cylinder problem. My type-S is 100% stock, and I made it to about 70k miles without any issues when the CMC first failed. Since then it has blown 4 times in 30k miles. The 3rd time it failed was only about a month ago. At that time I became...

    For those of you that installed a ss braided clutch line did you guys install it with the oem fittings on such as in the first picture? or just bolted it straight up like in the second picture? Or it wouldn't matter with or without that adapter as seen in the first pic? I know that the banjo...

    Hey guys, noob to the whole CMC thing. I found many threads of people replacing the stock CMC with the CMC of an EM1 or EM2 civic. I decided to go for it since this is the second time my CMC has gone out in 2 years. Also what special things do I need to be aware of to do this? Thanks.

    Hey guys, I posted here a year ago asking why my clutch was all the way at the floor and it turned out to be my CMC that completely blew. I changed the OEM Rsx cylinder to an OEM EM2 cylinder and a OEM RSX slave. Fast forward 6 months in June, I had a similar problem where my clutch did not...

    So pretty much its so cold when i go to put it in gear my car starts to stall. When i push my clutch in it takes a more time to come back and sometimes even sticks for a second 160k type s. I know its because its cold but my question is could this create further problems where it wont work...

    im thinking about getting an exedy organic clutch and the act street light flywheel with the em2 cmc . Does anyone see any problems with this setup with a stock trans? and would I need to mess with the slave cylinder at all?

    Does anybody know how thick the spacer is that comes with the OmniPower CMC? I need to make a spacer from scratch and can't find the thickness measurements anywhere.

    So I finally got my new civic CMC installed in my 03 base, well now the clutch is slipping. I'm not sure how much pressure i was supposed to have with this new cmc but it feels like alot even all the way to the top of the pedal, shouldnt there be a small amount of play at the top pedal position...

  19. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Im sure this has been covered and probably obvious. I want to know if anyone has installed a s2k CMC in their RSX? Mine is on its way out, I want to upgrade to the EM2 or EM1. But I wouldn't mind hiding that stupid reservoir. I would assume the s2k CMC would work with the spacer. Just awkwardly...
