Default 03 wagon clutch reccomendation

I have an 03 wagon with a 2.5 hybrid. I'm making 300whp and 325wtq. I HATE the spec clutch the last owner put in. I'm trying to find a clutch that will hold the tq and I could also street use. It's my daily. One of my buddies said not to get a clutch with Kevlar due to glossing over. Any recommendations on brand and stage? Thanks in advance.

What is the advantage of going to a stock one that isn't designed to hold the torque?

Will the STI clutch bolt up and fit just fine with 03 trans?

wrx and Sti flywheels are different.
Your clutch size should match the flywheel.
wrx clutches are less expensive.

I had a wrx clutch and flywheel in my 6 spd, used because I had a new clutch to use when the 6 spd was installed. After that clutch went bought an Sti clutch and swapped in my Sti flywheel.

Can a Sti flywheel and clutch be used in a wrx 5 spd? answered here:

A sprung organic disc is easier to drive than the other materials.

Higher than stock rated there are several options, but people have had good luck with the Exedy, ACT street disc and any of the Southbend "Daily" clutches.

You can see the FAQ for a list of torque ratings for the various clutches. Unsure if Unabomber has the Southbend clutches on there, Southbend has ratings on their site.

I have a Southbend Stage 3 daily and engagement was initially jarring, but once broken in the pedal is a little stiffer than stock, but otherwise engagement is smooth. The ACT is similar. I haven't driven an uprated Exedy organic, but I'd expect the same. The cerametallic and kevlar clutches have a harsher engagement that make them better for some motorsport usage, but more difficult to daily drive. For what you've explained, you want a sprung organic clutch, which is probably what your transmission wants you to have too =)... since it transmits a bit less shock by giving some slip on engagement.
