Default Transmission/clutch Probs!

Okay, I recently upgraded my engine hp by strapping a stock TD04 on my ej18(and all the other expensive neccesary parts ). I'm now putting out stock WRX power! (about 175 when I had it dyno tuned.) Which I very, VERY happy with!

Now, the real problem that I'm facing is my clutch. It's just 100% not able to handle this HP increase. And it's no fun not getting to drive it the way it deserves to be.. Trashing civics!

Right now, I'm rolling the stock ej18 FWD tranny and with no aftermarket help, there's no where to go but up...grade! So, money issues dropped the idea of swapping in AWD. But, does anyone know more about the AWD tranny? Like is it spilt yolk? Would it be possible to swap in an AWD WRX tranny without hooking up a drive shaft and it run?

Someone have any advice? This might be a stupid question, but it sucks having some HP but no way to drive it.

Oh, another question: Does anyone know of a clutch that will fit despite what the description says? Like '93Impreza1.8T used a 2.5RS clutch in his 1.8 AWD tranny..

Anything helps!

yea i am using the rs clutch with a 2.2 flywheel the 1.8 flywheel is to small for the rs clutch but it all holds up great now and was a direct bolt-on after getting the flywheel good luck i also love the awd when i did the conversion i tried to run it with just the fron cv's installed and nothing connected to the rear and it wouldn't move. i have the open diffs. wich send more power to the slipping wheels.
