Default the smell of my burning clutch (or lack there of)...

I smoked the crap out of my clutch today, doing what I won't say, but I'm probably going to need a new one. I have no idea which clutch is the best to buy quality and $$ wise. I really hope I can get the situation worked out soon, because I have 2 more car shows to attend this month, and I don't think I want to be towed into the lots. Any advice on what clutch to buy and anything else I might need (when I replace the clutch) would be greatly appreciated.

unless you smoked it for like 20sec at close to wot, your clutch is probably still ok. it takes a long ass smoking to burnout the clutch...but your flywheel might be warped... id be more worried about that.

I was smoking it for a pretty long time. I was shiffting through gears and pushing my car pretty hard, and I realized that the clutch wasn't even grabbing and I was going nowhere. And then it stunk for about 4 hours afterward.

Yup, so I tried driving my car this morning, and the clutch just doesn't grab like it should. The car shakes when shifting into 2nd unless I ride the clutch alot and then it kind of shakes shifting into 3rd, 4th feels fine though. When pushing in the clutch it feels normal. Is it the clutch? or is it the fly wheel? I don't know a whole lot about this stuff.

Clutch, any aftermarket performance clutch is probably fine if you're just going to rip it up anyway... Just playin, I'll help you out for real.

With all that shudder I'd be afraid I warped something, but the pressure plate would probably go before the flywheel. Pull the tranny, and check things out. You can probably just resurface the flywheel and be ready to roll with that. However, for the rest of the clutch replacement you'll need a few things:

Clutch and Pressure plate. ACT has a good selection of different rated clutches with pretty reasonable prices.

Throw-out bearing (also called release bearing) OEM Subaru is as good as anything.

Clutch install tool.

Might be a good idea to replace the Pilot bearing.

Or if you're in a serious bind, get a clutch kit off Ebay and cross your fingers
