Tranny Advice

I want to boost my 04 WRX to around 325-350 whp, and run it say maybe 20 times a year at the track, and itll be daily driven as well. What upgrades would be best for my tranny, clutch, and flywheel? Or will my stock parts be sufficient if i dont abuse them?

well, it would probably be nice to get a new clutch kit... But a highly-known problem with the WRX tranny, is weak gears... As long as you don't abuse them, you might be OK... But it would definately be better to upgrade...

STOCK tranny= STOCK clutch. If you want a bullet proof set up though for dragging a WRX then you will probably want to save up for some PPGs. Supposed to be good up to 800 AWHP or so. Much wider thick and stronger gears. If you upgrade your tranny then get an upgraded clutch.
