That's not exactly a "just drop in and help" kind of situation, especially if you haven't done a clutch before. Prepare yourself for:

-Inventing at least 4 new curse words and 1 combo-curse.
-A budget for when something stupid happens, like a broken tool, you spill fluids, etc.
-About 8 hours of fun and games.

That being said, good luck, just hop on here and one of us should be able to help point you in the right direction if you run into problems.

Depends on how much you've done it

On an non-turbo car, I prefer pulling the engine if you are not using a lift.

That requires an engine hoist (cherry picker)

remove radiator, disconnect coolant lines and wiring, unbolt A/C pump and power steering pump and move them to the side (that way you don't open the A/C system or power steering system)

Unbolt engine mounts, exhaust and bolts that attach the transmission

Pull engine with bare hands, or use the engine hoist.

Pulling the transmission instead of the engine requires unbolting exhaust, taking out one of the bolts in the struts to get the axles out of the transmission and you're probably gonna get trans fluid everywhere unless you have a plug for where the driveshaft goes into the transmission, also you have to remove the driveshaft. Then you have to mount the clutch to the back of the engine while it's in the car, also getting the transmission to line up to the engine without a transmssion jack or a lift is not fun.

plenty of "how to" guides out there and videos on youtube, read them over and decide if you want to do it.

It isn't necessarily hard to do if you're good at stuff like that, just takes a lot of work. So if you don't want to do it alone you better be ready to pay someone to do it or offer a **** ton of beer and pizza.

Yes, I figured that, that's why I went through the trouble of explaining what is involved

I paid a SWIC guy (who's in this thread) $100 to help me out and it was worth every penny and I was very thankful. We got it all done in about 5-6 hours I believe, with a trip to Vatozone included.

Do you smoke alot of weed or something?

You need a clutch.

You're installing a clutch.

How you acquire the clutch has nothing to do with you installing the clutch, you said you're installing it yourself.

You asked for help installing the clutch.

I mentioned that I paid $100 to a fellow SWIC member for their time to come help me install it.

What does your dad buying you car parts have to do with you installing the car parts?

I think you are better off taking your car to a shop to have it done judging by this thread. Wouldn't subaru super store have it in stock?

anywhere you go is going to charge a good amount, its not a super easy job, as it will take a shop 3-4 hours to do, If you haven't done something like this before you are better off just paying a shop to do it,

installing a clutch on any car is a pain in the butt.
it will take 5 or more hours and get anyone involved pretty dirty and angry.
its hot out and you'll have to lay on your back working under a car the whole time.

it will probably cost almost $1000 to get it done at a shop including parts
most people will not help someone out they dont know on a clutch job. its way too involved. Its nearly impossible for you to do yourself as the trans is pretty heavy and will need to be put back in a certain way.
