Ok Let Me Start Of By Saying Sorry If This Was Already Answered Somewhere Else.
I am new to the WRX/STi Tuning world.... bought a brand new 06STI last year and have since added:
Cobb Cat Back
Cobb Access Port
Greddy Turbo Timer
Greddy Boost Controller
Defi Link With Boost Gauge
AEM Wideband A/F.
(I Do All My Own Work and Am Pretty Mechanically Inclined.)
Heres The Bad Part.... With all the added HP/Tourque and the fact i drive like ill never drive again Ive burned out the clutch at only 17000 miles.
I have on order a ACT clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel in mind. However, I Keep reading on forum after forum you need to upgrade the tranny at the same time, but there are no suggestions or guidelines on what exactly to beef up. If someone could help me out that would be great. I Never Had To Do This With My DSM Till Way Later
heres anther clutch question, i have a 08 wrx what are the clutch's in this car able to handle and for about how long.... mine is stock atm and will be modded slowly. but im woundering if the clutch its self can handle 3k drops on take offs and such... any info would be great thanks...
I have had very little problems (if any at all) with the stock clutch ('02) by sticking to the habit of waiting until the clutch is engaged before really laying into the throttle. But if one is truly looking to launch a WRX with 3k-6k clutch drops, then it may be a good idea to start saving change in a 5 gal container.
