The 2 dealerships in town can do a fairly good job, however they probably won't be the cheapest. My buddy loves the body work that he gets done at Fox Automotive, but I'm not sure if he does clutches. Never been there myself.

I did my own clutch in a weekend with the help of 1 friend. Probably would have been just a day if I had gone and bought the clutch, PP, and flywheel in advance.

I've used both dealers for warranty work on my old WRX - of the two, I'd recommend Garcia. Haven't had much experience with the independents, but have heard good things about Boost, inc. (mentioned above) and Camtuning, but I am not sure if the latter do repairs, or just engine management stuff...

I'll check out boost. I cant get garcia to call me back. i've got a few quotes anywhere from 1500 - 1700 for the clutch. If I had a place and my tools I would do it myself but I am stuck in an apt right now/
