Default clutch opinions

New to the tuner world and everything i search makes a tough call on choosing. I was told to get a exedy and then i start calling dealers and they all say act or spec but people here in town say no spec. So Im wanting a poll between the three to help me pick and the car will get Cobb stage two by the end of the year so it will need yo handle a little power. Thanks for the input!!!

1. This isn't the "tuner world", start off by using the right terms first off.
2. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum BEFORE posting. Here's your hint: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?p=9878792
3. Without posting your car's torque, not even Jesus can help you...the only thing that will happen is that n00bs will throw out random clutch brand/types that will confuse you.
4. Now that you've had your head aligned, go to item 2 above and read it fully as the advice listed there is badass and in case you are too lazy to read it, here are the CliffNotes:

You do NOT need anything other than a stock clutch and flywheel at Stage 2 or less power levels regardless of what Subaru you own and if you go out and use something else, even if you were to get said clutch for $0, you are a moron.

Did you read the Clutch + Flywheel sticky? My money is on no, no you didn't.

Read. Learn. Make informed decision. Profit.

your "stage2" stock turbo (td04) will not make enough power to warrant the purchase of a new clutch

Stock clutch will handle stage 2 easily. Heck, it'll handle vf39. Might as well use that money and go stage vf39.
