Default Slipping Problem...?

So last night I was driving, it was about 0 degrees out, and I gave it in 5th gear to pass a car, and right when boost hit, sokmething was slipping... I do believe it smells like a burning clutch, but I am not sure...
If you guys could tell me what you think, know it could be that would be awesome...
Otherwise also if it is my clutch, suggestion for a new, or better clutch...
Just looking for some guidance and help...
Thanks,
Brock.

yup. Probably the clutch. I'd do some more "testing" to be sure, but that's got to be it if you ask me. Try a hard pull in 3rd. Do your RPM's seem to rise much faster than you start moving? That's teh slippage. The good news is, as long as it's just starting to slip, if you are easy on it you will have enough time to get another one and replace it. It wears out gradually but once it starts slipping, don't dilly-dally too long.

Go to Unabomber's Manifesto and check out the Clutch/Flywheel FAQ. Everything you need to know to make a replacement purchase.

+1 clutch.

Find an OEM exedy replacement clutch kit. I found mine on ebay. It came out to less than $200 shipped.

If you are planning on more engine modifications in the future I would recommend the ACT HDMM modified street disk + heavy duty pressure plate. It has around a 400 ft-lb holding capacity (up from the stock 300 ft-lb rating on the OEM exedy) and still features an organic full disc for smoother engagement and a little more "transmission insurance". From what I have read during the research phase, the Exedy stage I disc (an HDMM competitor) has tends to have more issues with clutch shudder, and sometimes expierences dis-engagement issues.

If you don't plan on going crazy with power mods, stick with the OEM exedy. and make sure you get your flywheel resurfaced properly! resurfacing is really important.

And yes, it is definatly your clutch slipping...

I would only resurface if you cannot afford to purchase a new flywheel.

Resurfacing is around $30-$50. You can find a new one for a comparable price, or maybe even a low mileage one off another WRX.
