Default Post-swap clutch question (99 to 95)

So I swapped out my old 250K engine out of my 1999 Impreza L Wagon and got a 1995 Legacy 2.2 in it with about 100K less. The swap was successful, very few issues (aside from no IACV hook up)...

My question is regarding the clutch. I used the old clutch and flywheel (no issues) and the assembly bolted right up to the new engine without any problems or fitment issues. Well, after learning how to drive stick on this vehicle and teaching 3 other people how to drive stick with same said vehicle, it's worn.

I'm having a helicoil put in Friday (I stripped one of the stud holes) and I want them to do my clutch while they're taking the header off anyways and getting the car on a lift. Now I want to purchase the parts myself but to be honest I'm not sure what model I should be matching my clutch to, the car or the engine?

Since the old clutch worked just fine, I feel that I should be looking for a clutch for a 1999 Impreza given that is the current type of clutch in there, but I'm wondering if I go aftermarket, will I encounter problems? (since I'm sure they aren't built to the exact same specs)

So in short: Should I look to match the clutch to the transmission or the engine?

All EJ engines are the same besides being phase 1 or phase 2. The clutch follows the transmission, but they should both be the same clutch anyways
