depends which one you want. Research for reviews of each clutch

TRD
RPS
ACT

I have the JDM TRD clutch kit. I got it at my local dealership. I paid too much for it. Although I love the way it performs.

I got my stock clutch swapped with a JDM TRD clutch kit at about 60,000. I have 69,000 miles now and it is working great!

I noticed it slipped a lot when i would shift at high rpms. I would also require more gas at stops to get moving.

If you are thinking about tunign the car you should really get a "race" Clutch. The stock one will not handle all the power if you are thinking about makint it more powerful grin
