I believe my clutch is on the way out. I was in 5th gear last night doing about 60 mph and when I tried to accelerate The tach went up but the speedo stayed the same for a few seconds and then started to accelerate. If indeed it sounds like the clutch , what is the best performance clutch for everyday performance without going crazy aggressive I have a 2006 wrx. All replies are welcom , Thanks

I'd stick to the OEM one if you are aren't going to go crazy with modding your car.

Correct - you should choose your clutch based on your goals/tq *not* hp. Also, the WRX loves the organic material clutches, try to stick with that. If you are stock, the Exedy OE are decently priced. For MY07, I went with the ACT SB5-HDSS. I am also Stage 2 with heavy considerations on an upgraded turbo.

I really appreciate it guys , very helpful. I want to be able to upgrade at some point in time , I want a clutch that will be able to handle slight modification , mainly street performance , not aggressive track use

When you mention "upgrade", what exactly are you looking to do? As I said, base your decision off your projected torque. From my research and readings, the stock clutch is able to hold a good amount, but my "I only want to remove this trans once..." mentality kicked in. Are you a stickler for pedal feel?

These two threads really helped me -

A lot of reading, but well worth the end result. In the end it should be YOUR choice.

as far as upgrade , it is just my nature to replace a part with something better and stronger. I wouldnt mind being in the 300 torque range. I do appreciate the links

Well I have ordered a exedy stage 1 HD. I am having TurboTime in Cary , N.C. put it in. They specialize in Subaru

Any 02-07 WRX owner who is considering an upgraded clutch with a stock transmission should do more research. Stop, think, learn, and BUY A STOCK CLUTCH!

good or bad , you'll know either way

The WRX Stage 1 HD isn't that impressive...when compared to the STI version. But, yeah....stop, drop, and roll.....opps. ;) I meant to follow Mosc's advice; because it is pretty well thought out. The gears really can't take a lot of abuse. Unless your name is Keith (psinuse) :p

man show 10-06-2011 10:22 PM

Keith's gears = an anomaly

turmic 10-06-2011 10:36 PM

Oh...he must have leprechauns in his transfer case, about 10 lucky rabbits feet hanging from his rearview mirror, and fills his transmission with the blood of christ. But the: blood, sweat, tears, hopes, and dreams are all coming together to keep his transmission together right now.

if his box does blow I've got a BA box in my garage! it held up fine to 375whp abuse all day long
