If you're daily driving at stock power levels, even stage 2, it's pretty hard to beat an OEM clutch. Launching the car at redline on slicks, or doing 27 minute sessions on the road course, yeah, an oem clutch isn't going to hold up to that.

There's a clutch for every purpose, and a purpose for every clutch.

That might be the reason for your excessive chattering, paired with the light weight flywheel man lol

6-speed clutch is too big for a 5-speed anyway..you have to modify the bell housing.

I know that. Would have been the perfect opportunity to do it if I wanted. Think ill just spend a bill and a half on the exedy kit and leave it stock. Ill just swap in a 6 speed tranny if I end up doing an engine swap down the line

The ACT HD isn't that bad. It usually doesn't chatter, even with a LWFW. You learn to drive with a heavy pressure plate..it becomes a non issue.

I actually have issues driving cars with light pressure plates now lol.
