Default aftermarket clutch slipping, have rebuild questions

So I have an exedy hypersingle on my 04sti which was doing fantastic, until i let some of my uneducated friends drive it... really think they tore it a new one.

Either way it is now slipping under decent load around 3500-4000. So im running out of time and have questions about my options. Is there anyway to tell if i just need to rebuild the disk and/or pressure plate? or do you have to pull it to find out exactly what it needs. Its my daily driver so i cant really have this thing out of commission for a few weeks.

Also will the flywheel that came with this survive another round or how do i go about telling what needs/should be done with it as to resurfacing/replacing?

Thanks for any input!

You could just replace the disk I believe, contact an Exedy vendor to be sure.
You MUST resurface the flywheel.
There is no such thing as rebuilding the pressure plate...it either works or don't, of that I'm 98% sure.

any idea of the time frame im looking at from when i pull the flywheel to how long it will take to get back? I'm assuming this resurfacing is something that subaru or any local shop doesnt do.


also anyone have any experiences with rebuilding an aftermarket disc versus just replacing it?

not hard to find a shop to do the flywheel, but you have to have it Blanchard ground, not turned on a lathe, it's important.. start making calls... Call mom-n-pop auto shops in the are (not Autobone) and ask takes a day to do depending on how busy..

You could potentially skuff the surface of the clutch parts and get away with it... it's your call though as it may not work as hoped..
