Hello everyone, i wasnt too sure which category to put this but i hadnt found any thread on someone using this upgrade kit from procivic so figured id give it my 2 cents.

To start everything was of great quality and the line that runs from the cmc to the sc has enough length to be able to run it however you want for the most effective clean look.

Installation was smooth even though the cmc is kinda in the far corner of the firewall and for me i could only get small partial turns when undoing the old line and generally working by feel. Nonetheless it was out and the new one in without much frustration.

After getting everything installed and clutch bled first thought was wow, now this is how i like clutch peddle to feel and thats to actually have some feeling! Theres a nice slightly stiffer firmness feel to it. Stock to me the clutch has no sort of feel, no feedback its light and mushy. Granted plenty of people like having an easy light clutch feel for every day driving but to me i like to feel whats going on with the car.

Drove around for about 20mim doing normal driving and as i said the peddle now has just the right amount of stiffness and firmness. There is feedback in the peddle, a slightly small amount of vibration when youre engaging and disengaging but to me its only a very small amount and if you were thin light shoes. 6 days a week im wearing steal toes so im sure i wont feel anything with those on.

After the car was good a properly warmed up i did some WOT pulls 1-3 and all i have to say is, COME ON HONDA! This is exactly how the car should have performed from the factory. The clutch grips so much better and immediately. When i first installed my short shift kit i would grind going into any gear if i attempted to do quick shifting. Now its smooth as silk. I couldn't be happier, all i could do when i did these pulls was just smile and laugh with excitement with how night and day different the car is.

The sirimoto cmc/sc kit along with the sirimoto krispy shift kit is a combination that goes hand in hand perfectly and for the price of it all its been for me the best thing ive done to the car. One thing though if you are looking to do this setup when you order the krispy shift kit dont worry about getting the clutch line because youll just be swapping it and the rest of the stock lines out for the one that comes with the cmc/sc kit.

Thanks for the review! I've been debating this kit for a little while and keep going back and forth on it.

Yeah and youd be able to give a proper review too. Reason i chose the sirimoto is cause one they make great products for the price and second i just read too many people having issues with the ktuned one within months
I have heard that as well. I have stickers for both on the car, but will probably go with sirimoto when I get around to it.

Thank you for taking the time to do this! Hopefully, when it's time to change my clutch, this kit will be available (as I don't see any other kits coming out/being upgraded).

Much appreciated!

In addition to his question,Id like to ask if the engagement point changed? I swapped out my CMC on my old RSX-S to an EM1 cmc and the engagement was much quicker(lower)

Didn't want to revive an old thread, but has anyone experienced a leaking slave cylinder with this kit? I noticed fluid was dripping out somewhere, even when the bleeder valve is closed. I went underneath to check it out, and looks like it's coming from the slave cylinder.

What was wrong with stock master/slave?

I don't see anything wrong with the master, but I think something in the slave cylinder broke. I'm able to pump fluid to and out of the slave's bleeder valve, but it just squirts. I noticed a puddle of fluid underneath the slave cylinder area, and I'm hearing a hiss noise when I pump my clutch pedal. Perhaps it's just bad luck on my part. I'm out of a car since my old slave cylinder literally fell apart when I took it out lol.

I'd call whoever you bought the aftermarket master/slave from. This is your very first defense, maybe you installed wrong, but it's likely there's a issue on their end.
Personally, I won't touch my master/slave, even for the CDV. I've worked in industrial maintenance for 15 years now. Once you touch a hydraulic system, you end up with leaks. I'll wait for a leak, and go from there on upgrades worth while (I don't see any worth it besides brake upgrades, or CDV).
This goes with engine oil too, I fought turbo drain (not under pressure) leaks. Anything not perfect, oil is thinner than water, and will leak.
If you take a picture of your leak point, it'd be much more helpful. Top off fluid, bleed if needed. Then degrease everything. When clean and dry, have someone slowly push clutch in, while you watch master/slave while your ready to take a picture. I suggest doing this paragraph before contacting supplier, it helps to say "XXX is wrong on the XXXX that you sent me, see pictures"
