Question Burning clutch smell and slipping

My car is at 85k miles and i bought it used with 2 previous owners at 75K and yesterday my clutch didnt engage correctly at 4th gear, so now i smell this metallic burn so I let it cool overnight. This morning the smell wasnt there, but when i got to work, I could faintly smell it, and as i drove to work, it felt like it was slipping a little in 1st and 3rd mostly and somewhat on 2nd.

So the question is:

Should I think about replacing my clutch?

if so:

Exedy Stage 1 Single Plate Organic Clutch?


Exedy OEM replacement Organic Clutch?

I dont have much of a power goal. All i want is stage 2 with AP maybe upping the boost to 15psi max. The car is pretty much stock, minus the resonator, and with K&N filter. But in the future, i want to have a full TBE and catless UP and silicone charge pipe and y pipe.

So if i need replacement, would the OEM kit suffice?

Thanks in advance

Sounds like your clutch is shot, Exedy OEM or other OEM replacement is all you need for the mods you mentioned and is the easiest on your tranny.

yea my clutch began to do the same exact thing and it got worse, i would get the exedy OEM one since its a little less harsh on the tranny and since you have an 03, they are known for not being the strongest, but the exedy should hold more than enough torque then you are planned for
