Default Help needed from the Scooby Guru's

OK Here is the rundown. Sotck clutch just replaced under TSB for clutch shudder. I has Subaru use the parts I bought instead of the ones listed on the TSB. The parts used were and Exedy Organic Clutch Kit paired with an Exedy Lightweight Flywheel.

Got the car back, and the clutch feels light as air. I also notice that it isn't grabbing very hard, almost softer than my stock clutch. The engagement points are the same too. The clutch grabs when the pedal is about 1 inch from all the way out. I figure, ok, it just needs ot break in and seat against everything and it will be ok.

500 miles of city driving later, I put my new uppipe and downpipe on. It pulls harder and I like the new feel. Well, I decide to get on it from a dead stop and watch the RPM's shoot up and bounce off the rev limiter a few times. The inside of my car is instantly filled with a burnt clutch smell.

Now for my question. Could the guys at Subaru forgot to bleed to clutch and that is causing the long engagement? Or could it be a slave cylinder or something like that? And if it is the slave cylinder, wouldn't they notice it when they put the new clutch in? And, is there a quick fix for any of this? Motors I can do, but I am clueless with transmissions. Any info would be appreciated. I would just like some input before I go back to Subaru and chew some butt.

Hydraulic clutches are self-adjusting, and replacing the clutch does not require cracking open even the clutch MC, let alone bleeding the system.

Besides which, a hydraulic system failure would produce the opposite symptoms. There would be less pressure in the system resulting in a lower clutch engagement, not higher, and possibly difficulty getting into gear and shifting. It would not cause clutch slippage.

So did I just get a bad batch of parts?

Did Exedy change their parts? I had the flywheel for about 6 months before I got the clutch.
