Why do you think you need to upgrade the clutch? You're not going to make enough power out of an NA mill to have problems with the stock clutch.

clutch installs assuming the labor..around 600 bucks..I'd get a lil better clutch just to take more abuse..but keep it streetable in the clutch department..don't go throwing in pucks lol you'll hate how they feel...or if you plan on upgrading your engine or anything in your engine later on so you don't have to buy another clutch down the road. mybe a clutch from ACT that will stand 500 lbs. of torque...with pressure plate and bearing should be pleased. Not really over kill but can with stan heat..don't have to have power to destroy a clutch....

Why on earth are you recommending a clutch that can hold 500ftlbs of torque on an engine that will, almost certainly, never exceed 200ftlbs. In fact, unless the OP is planning on serious engine work in the future, he probably can go with a clutch that will hold 150ftlbs or 175ftlbs if he wants a little headroom.

Additionally, some of the other, more advanced clutch materials are actually less able to deal with heat. The OEM-type organic material will be fairly heat-tolerant (though take a while too cool down) but the biggest advantage is that you can overheat it and it will recover once cooled down. Some of the high-zoot clutch materials will never be the same again if you overheat them even once. ACT or Fidanza or someone has a series of videos about choosing a clutch. One of the things they talk about is choosing the right material and they flat out said that an OEM-type organic material is the right choice for 90% of all customers.

you can get an organic of aftermarket material you know..thats not too hard. Plus thats why I posted in case you plan on future HP increase in mods or swap....so why are you trying to make another point when i basically stated what you restated by quoting me WILL. Personally there are aftermarket that can with stand heat what on earth are YOU talking about man!!! lol yeah OEM is good with Hp increase but unless your leaving it stock whats the reason with repalcing it again...Organic's always cool down back to the previous state its not just any organic OEM its all!!! thats why most go with organic instead of ceramic...but ceramic will hold even better its when they glaze is when theres no going back...just state the PRO's and CON's instead of giving me reason as to why I made an opinion...500lbs. is the extreme rate msot fail before that with prolong use Will..stock clutch's can with stand anywhere from230 to 300lb.s but not at a constant 300 all the time everytime...it will give buddy. So if you have a car thats pushing 480lbs. its not a good idea to get a clutch that will handle 500 thats retarded if you ask me..leave yourself some space to paly with...or you can just have WILL do it for you and purchse it since he's so emotional about it. lol

I am using one of those F1 racing ebay setups with the 6puck, $195 shipped. The pressure plate is a VALEO brand. The 6 puck grabs hard, some chatter if you don't pay attention.

the stock clutch is a stage 1 exedy its way more than u need , and if your head is snapping back your gonna have some serious gear shock . ouch $2000 for a tranny or $300 for a clutch.

why do you need a new clutch in your 05 anyway? maybe save your money and spend it on racing school or something .ive never gotten less than 100k ish with any clutch.

just look at them http://www.oakos.com/Merchant2/merch..._Code=EXEKSB03

so your saying subby use's an exedy clutch as there base oem clutch. MAN!!! thats for WRX not impreza yeah this will work hella better than oem impreza hahahaha thats because its not for an impreza its better.Thats what it sounds like your saying if so...someone slap WILL for being an ass, that and if this is the case why do most recommend swapping these with engine swaps. in refrence to gear shock that is why I asked what kinda of 6 puck springless or with springs..cause you do feel jolts with a springless....yeah better for racing but don't expect a tranny to last as long as you stated. Well depends cause stop and go traffic can actually wear the hell out of a clutch. that on and off the clutch movement so I can see where he might need a new one. that or depends on if you ride the clutch or not, some people think AWD cars are like FWD or RWD but in actuality you have to learn how to drive one, even using the clutch is different.

I run springless 6 pucks in 3 NA tranny cars. Only have broken one tranny (three times) but only ONCE was it due to excessive power, the other were BAAAAD misshifts.

why dont you slap him yourself? if your asking why people recogmend swapping your clutch with an engine swap i would imagine cause its accessable.

ride your clutch?? if the clutch is engaged , or not engaged there is no clutch wear. clutch wear is caused in that in between stage . if you really want to have your clutch last a long time rev match as much as possible and your clutch should engage smoother and quicker with less friction.

but dude seriously its really hard to understand what your typing .

are you american?

im not going to justify why i want an aftermarket. generally when i replace parts i upgrade them. going back to the original post and questions... what options are available. would one of those f1 racing stag 2 setups from ebay be sufficient. although it is cheap, i would assume it would be superior to the oem.

I would also like to know why your clutch is slipping already? I don't see any reason to not stick with OEM.
