clutch

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.

clutch

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

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!

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)

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.
