What kind of power are you putting out to need a performance clutch? The stock one holds up to at least 160hp without beating on it.

Spec stage 2??? i thought they only have stage...i guess it can be call stage 0 but better than stock.

I just looked on the site, and they say they have stage 5,,,something is wrong with their site, prolly they meant 05 accent and not 06. btw stage 5 is 439.

Remember, this is showing fitment for a 2006. I "think" it should work, but I'm not positive. I was going to go with a stage 2+ so I still had close to stock engagement but extra holding power.

This is the breakdown off their stages.

Stage 2 and 2+ look like good options for close to stock feel. I've had the displeasure of driving a car with an unsprung 6 puck clutch for 2 years (stage 4). I hated every moment of it. Like it says on the website, it's not street friendly. It can be done but it shatters, shudders and clunks a lot. It would only feel good after beating on it, getting the clutch disc hot.

I did some research on HMA and here's what I found. The 2G 1.6 clutch disc has the same OD as the 3G's (215mm) but it's a tad thinner (0.1mm). Both use a 20 spline hub. So yes the clutch disc will work but I don't know if the pressure plate will bolt up to the flywheel. I know the 2.0 Beta clutch and PP will bolt to the 2G's flywheel. I think it's safe to say the 2G clutch and PP will work with the 3G's flywheel. If hyundai decided the flywheel would work for both these engines I don't see why they would have changed it with the AlphaII's.

Shortly after I bought my Accent, I went on the "official" hyundai-performance website and saw that they sell a performance clutch for it. Needless to say that I ran to the Stealership to ask about it. They told me "No we don't actualy sell this, mainly because it voids your warranty. If you buy it, it means you intend to use it, therefore it means you are not driving your vehicle properly." haha Hyundai, haha.

Thought I should share this with you.

Of course we intend to use it, we are not going to install it and just watch the car for the rest of his life. either way, the only way we can abuse that clutch or engine will be with forced induction and of course nitrous.(or noobs driving MT)

I hate stupid dealerships that do this. No, it will not void your warranty - not for your entire vehicle anyway. It would void your clutch's warranty, not that it really has one because good luck convincing a dealer that you didn't ride your clutch, etc, meaning that they automatically get out of warranty work regarding a clutch in the first place. At worst, you void your powertrain warranty if they can prove that your upgraded clutch was the direct cause of failure but that's it. Everything else can and will be supported by the warranty. There is no such thing as a 'open the fuse box cover, replace a fuse, and you void your entire warranty!!!!!11' on a vehicle and any dealership that tries to say otherwise should be receiving a nice little correction phone call from Hyundai Corp after you call them to complain about that dealership's stupidity.

and its not like the dealership pays for the materials and labour out of pocket. they wouldn't have warranties if that were the case.

You guys will remember I had what could have been a serious incident with my oil plug a few months ago. When I called corporate, they got back to me within a day or so.

Call em up and complain, its how we'll keep Hyundai giving us good service, ya know?
