I think the word is try? If so, no. You DO NOT play mix and match with clutch products for most cases. If you call ACT and they say yes, then by all means, do it. DO NOT rely on some idiot on the internet for this answer though. P.S. There is no stage 1 ACT clutch.

I just swapped out the clutch on my 2010 Wrx for an ACT HDSS5. Very time consuming job. I will be putting together a detailed write up for your review. Stay tuned.

So I have been searching and reading and I haven't found anything about using a lightweight flywheel (specifically ACT Streetlite) on an 06 STi. I have a Clutch Masters FX 300 that is going in and I have heard both sides about using the flywheel, any insight or experience would be very helpful.

I have heard that the RPMs fall fast which causes rough idle.

I have 07 STi and ACT Streetlite with FX400 6-puck bolted on.
It is true that FX400 is much grabbier then 300, but from my experience it was a little frustrating trying to take off after switching from stock setup. After a while you get used to it, and frankly I would not go back, but get ready for a bit of challenge, although I have not drove FX300 and it might not be as aggressive.

the FX300 and streetlite flywheel were on the car for about 500 miles with the previous owner (i picked it up yesterday, woot!). Not sure why he put the stock one back in...

How is the idle?
Does it ever drop to fast that the car cant stop it and shuts off or something horrible like that?
does it wind up too fast?
does it shudder at all?

I like stiff pedal, and quick hard engagement(edit: thats what she said). I really just want the car to be reliable and smooth but grab like a minx.

resurface currently installed OEM with FX 300, buy new OEM for FX 300 or use the 500mi used streetlite flywheel is the dilemma for me

I recently installed a streetlight flywheel from act and now have the misfire code that was mentioned, I am just wondering if there is anyway to keep this code from coming on or if I just have to deal with it, thanks!

Changed my flywheel for ACT Streetlite and Exedy stg 2 ceramic clutch, but can't find the answer for my question: is there a break in period so that the clutch and flywheel get used with each other?

Question When to replace the stock flywheel vs. resurface?

I need to replace my clutch and, after reading the FAQ, it sounds like I should go to the stock OEM Exedy unit. The FAQ doesn't address a stock flywheel question - when to replace vs resurface the flywheel? Or even just reuse, as is? One mechanic says original flywheel should be fine (after 130K miles?). Some say resurface. When or why should I/would I replace the flywheel? I'm not looking for lighter weight - I plan to go with a replacement OEM version.

Thanks in advance,

Bill

Recently installed a genuine Exedy OE replacement. I'm very happy with it.

So after reading this entire thing. I found nothing in my little impreza. I've noticed a terrible whine when I hold the clutch in to either start the car or at traffic lights. It's a 2011 with just about 50k.

Now I know exedy makes the oem replacement for my car KSB04 but I wanted something either a little stiffer like maybe like stock wrx specs

So after asking around on some of the other forums, I'm really sure I wore out my clutch and what I'm smelling is burnt clutch lol -___- , but what I was wondering was would this effect anything else in my car, for instance , I've noticed my car is working way harder and isn't going as fast, less get up, and when I press on the gas more it revs way louder and nastier sounding(not as nice sounding as it sounder before). It revs way louder earlier too, by that mean , it never used to rev that loud when I barely touched the gas and now it does that and the rpms get higher quicker too. And the more I press note gas , it doesn't really do anything , just sounds like its working really hard and so I have to work it up slowly pressing the gas . Please help.

if you sink your foot in and the engine revs like crazy but you don't go anywhere then yes, your clutch is toast.

I have a specific type of question about clutches and flywheels. I have burnt my clutch on my 02 subaru impreza , I know I have to replace my clutch but how will I know if the flywheel needs to be replaced? When I actually replace it? Also I don't have the fund right now but I plan on putting a lot of money and power into this car in about a year and a half from now when I'm out of highschool and in the marines. Since I am I'm highschool I need a clutch that is great for stop and go traffic but also I ALSO LOVE HARD LAUNCHES , so if there is a clutch that is basically friendly for stop/go traffic but can also handle a little more torque so that I can hard launch, that would be great. I'm pretty sure it just has a stock clutch , but I don't mind going to a stage 2 clutch or a little bit more difficult one to get used to, cause I'm trying to work my way up Gradually through the stages and types of clutches , so that its an easier transition to get used to a racing clutch( if there is no point in this , please let me know ). Thank you and I think that's all my questions for now lol

Also I do not know my specific TQ , because I'm pretty sure my 02 Wrx is basically stock but someone told me my turbo is aftermarket because it puts out more pounds of boost tha. The stock turbos? Don't know if its true , and don't know if that affects TQ , but I'm just letting you guys know just in case. It puts out 15 pounds of boost. I'm just really getting into cars if you didn't notice lol

you'll find out about the flywheel once you look at it. at very least you'll need to get it resurfaced nice & shiny/flat for a new clutch.

if you plan on dumping a lot of money into the car you're going to break the 5 speed quite quickly. fairly pointless to spend a lot of money on the 5 speed setup - might as well do a 6 speed swap. in the meantime, just get the cheapest clutch you can find, get the flywheel surfaced and use that until you do the swap once you're in the marines.

also, your "hard launches" are what probably toasted it in the first place. they're certainly what will break the 'box.

you can turn up the boost on stock turbo's. the previous owner may have done this.

Okay yeah then it's probably a stock turbo. Just a quick question, but if you can turn up boost then what makes certain turbos better? And okay yeah I'll make it a 6 speed.
