My 02 is slipping. :(
 
So after going Stage 2 my clutch started slipping so I reflashed back to Stage 1 until I can get it replaced. Took a short vid of it. Just started 2 weeks ago. Any advice of a replacement?

You going to get your gears done soon?

If not, get the OEM replacement. Save the headaches.

Well the only goal I wanted was Stage 2. Wasn't going to start anything major. Was going to start working on Interior/Exterior next.

For 2002-2007 WRXs: Stock gears = Stock/OEM replacement clutch.

Yeah, but I broke it down a little nicer. :p

Well got her in the shop and getting the Perfection Clutch set installed. After getting the old clutch out apparently the clutch was so gone that the rivets started wearing into the flywheel so getting the flywheel resurfaced also. Should be back on the road by Monday.

You don't have any buddies around that would have helped?

Helped a friend of mine do his, yeah it took a good 9 hrs but we saved a ton of cash for BEEEEER. lol

Let us know how it turns out.

Man, must be nice to have friends like that. I don't even have any friends that have a full tool set...

pzr2874 02-24-2012 09:46 AM

It is nice. Problem is that now I have 2 kids and can't even find the time to do my OWN brakes....

So is life...

I feel you there, I have 2 myself and cant get the time to change my oil. I had to use personal time off at work to do my brakes. :poorme:

Its actually my Wife's friend's dad that doing it for me. He's been working on Subaru's for a while and repairs cars in his home garage. Sounds kind of like a backyard mechanic but I was very impressed with his garage being that he had a lift in it. So I doubt someone who invest that much into a backyard garage is a 1/2 a$$ mechanic. He was trying to get it done for me by the end of today but the flywheel set him back a bit.
He gonna do my timing belt for me also once I get the money up for it.

Once I get it back Ill post a video of results.

That's not true, I went with an aftermarket clutch and didn't have any issues..:p

I don't have any friends like that either mosc, just a father who would help out if I need it. Which my father is one of those old school mechanics. In his youth he built his firebird out of two junk yard cars. Back before I was born. So, he can turn a wrench and figure out most problems. ;)

Keith, read your signature. :p

pzr2874 02-27-2012 06:02 AM

^HAHAHA.... Ahem... Is it done yet Keith?

Speaking of which... This thread got me moving Sat AM to do my brakes... lol

Sorry to derail
