Default which clutch... 02-03 right?

well soon i fear i have to change my clutch...
i have a 94 wrx with the 94 wrx tranny as well...

unknown miles on the clutch....i just used what came with the front clip...

any suggestions on what i should get? store? site?

what about flywheels... would it be worth putting in a light weight, since i will have the tranny and engine separated...
or do u feel having a light weight flywheel is not fun....

WRX clutches and flywheels are what you want.

If you get a flyhweel you can save the downtime it normally takes to get yours resurfaced. Something to think about.

there is a slight difference between jdm wrx clutches
- early (93-96, v1-2ish) clutch is 225mm
- 97-00 (v3ish-6ish) clutch is 230mm
flywheels are all the same between them though, oddly.
USDM wrx clutch is 230mm

you COULD reuse your flywheel but if its decently used then you might just want to replace it. idk how accurate it is but ive heard its not really worth resurfacing subaru flywheels.... (?)

at any rate, a 02-04ish (ish=maybe 05) clutch kit will work.
heres some part #s since i JUST looked all this up a few days ago

Exedy lightened flywheel FF01T about $280 street price
Exedy organic/stage1 kit 15802/15802HD - about $425 street price
Exedy OEM replacement kit KSB03 - about $190 street price

strangely i found the KSB03 oem replacement clutch kit on amazon for only $150 even though it was over $185 everywhere else

02-04 is a for sure fit. I put a Southbend Sgt1 Rally in my car and a centerforce stg1 in a friends car as well. Both cars were a 93 JDM WRX.

All that really matters is that you keep them mated. So, if you buy an '02 WRX clutch kit for your 1995 EJ20G swap, you probably want to buy a new flywheel for it as well and not reuse the one that came on the swap from the importer. Sort of.

We've debated this issue in the USDM 91-94 Legacy circles for a few years now. What we have found is that even though the Legacy uses the earlier smaller diameter clutch disc, you can use the later larger clutch on the original flywheel. Technically the friction surface on it is too small but if the flywheel doesn't have excess wear on it you will be fine. I will mention that some people report chatter when doing this and suggest you resurface the flywheel. I don't like to resurface Subaru flywheels. I've seen issues with doing that resulting in chatter because of the change in depth. Basically, you are kind of rolling the dice either way. If it's not pretty pristine, I would just buy a new flywheel and use it as an excuse to go lightweight.

So, having said all that confusion convoluted stuff, this is the bottom line. You can use a USDM Ej205 '02-04 clutch kit and flywheel (stock or lightweight) on ANY JDM WRX swap. They never changed the bolt pattern on the crank. As long as it's mated to the type of transmission is all that matters. If you did a swap and left a push style clutch, then get an upgraded clutch kit for the 2.5RS. If you put in a pull style tranny, then get the USDM WRX clutch kit.
