Clutch kit help

My car needs clutch replacement. thing is i'm not sure if i need to get the full clutch kit or only specific parts. and i keep reading OEM is best but would this kit would be considered OEM, and just get it?

Ps. im sure preference comes into play but its mostly DD car.

Just remember one thing, changing the clutch on an S2000 is a royal pain. This isn't an OEM clutch, it's third-party. I've had good and bad luck with third-party parts. Personally, I'd go to a site like:
www.hondapartscheap.com or www.hondaautomotiveparts.com and order OEM, but that's me. YMMV.

+1 on going with factory parts. Buy the entire clutch mechanism and afterward bleed the clutch master cylinder and you should be good.

I would have sent him to Majestic (hondaautomotiveparts) but he's on the west coast. The two Honda dealers I referenced are both on the west coast. Save the lad some shipping costs.

Good point, I was more just pointing out that the OEM stuff is the same price.
