Default Noise on decel out of my 02

Hey everyone-

I just bought a 2002 wrx, the original owner had an Exedy OEM replacement clutch put in about 3k miles ago.

It is making a loud metallic resonating sound when the car is decelerating between 3k rpm down to 2k rpm. This happens in any gear. When I put the clutch in or put my foot back on the gas the sound goes away.

My first thought would be clutch noise (I've heard Exedy's can be noisy???), but someone else listened to it and doesn't think that it necessarily is. I am going to get it on a lift and "drive" the car so we can listen from underneath soon, but until then....

....thoughts?

That's normal. Many cutomers complained about decel noise back in the day and Subaru decided that the only fix was to increase the weight of the alrready pig heavy flywheel. From 27LBS. to 33LBS? I know that stock is 27LBS but not 100% if the replacement was 33 or 35.

My only comparison is my old 2005 Wrx that did not make this noise. So you're saying that the 05 had a heavier flywheel to get rid of this?

My buddy has a 02 and his doesn't make this noise I know when the clutch was replaced they did the flywheel too, maybe that explains it???
