Default New Clutch Troubles

OK...I have made some stupid decisions with my car...the first about a year ago when I opted to drop a fidanza flyhweel on my quickly expiring stock clutch. That lasted awhile until my clutch started sticking to the floor of my car. I decided to go for an exedy clutch, nothing "racey" and I heard that exedy clutches have a relatively stock feel. Got my car back today from the clutch job...
WHAT THE F***!!!! I dont even understand, it feels so much worse and it slips more than it did before. Now when I come to a complete stop and then move again I hear this quiet but still audible screaching noise. At first I though I might have taken off too fast but I then realized that it was something in my drivetrain. Again, WHAT THE F***!!! I KNOW the guys that did the job are qualified as they are certified Subaru techs and work at the local dealer. Couldnt be a bad install...
Has anyone else experienced this with Exedy? Man I am pissed. I don't even see this new clutch lasting this summer. It feels so weak and unhappy to be in my very lightly modded suby. Any help or suggestions would be great! Thanks
Josh

I highly doubt it's the Exedy parts because guess who makes the stock clutches for JDM Subaru's......Exedy. Sound like you didn't break it in right or a faulty install, I would say the install was bad.

man, you should have LERSOC install it. =) j/p

My buddies helped me install my exedy clutch + flywheel and i LOVE it. Honestly.. i'm guessing its the flywheel or the install. i've heard so-so things 'bout Fidanza.

Default Maybe you have another problem

I hate playing this card but... Shouldn't this be in the AT/MT forum?
Now that that's out of the way....

Sounds to me like you have another issue other than a worn-out clutch. You might have a bad slave cylinder or master cylinder or combination of both. I don't think a worn clutch would cause the peddle to stick to the floor. That usually happens when a slave fails. (Happend to me). Do you notice any other phenomena associated with the clutch like a wandering or random engagement point or intermittant soft or spongy peddle?

Try replacing the slave and/or master cylinder and re-bleed the system.

As for the screaching noise... I'm not sure what that could be... dry throwout bearing??? new clutch not broken in????
Maybe someone else can offer a suggestion other than my random guessing
