Default New clutch help what to get?

Hey everyone I'm currently having my engine rebuilt because of a ringland failure in my 07 wrx. I have about 53k miles on the car and I want to capitalize on the engine being our and replace the clutch.

What clutch should I get my mechanic recommended this one

https://www.rallysportdirect.com/fit...isc-clutch-kit

I am only stage 2 right now and the only future upgrade I want is a new bigger turbo. I do track the car as is road race not drag. So I want something reliable but I don't want a crazy heavy clutch because this is a dd. Is this a good route to go or should I just go with stock or maybe something else.

What is your horsepower and torque goal? That's really what will determine what you need.

Max torque is probably 350 to the wheels tops

That one would probably be fine. Personally, I would like a bit more space for safety, but that's just me. Something rated around 450ft/lbs.

So you wouldn't go with the stock clutch?

I'd recommend new OEM throwout and pilot bearings instead of using the ones that come with the kit.

The one recommended is definitely NOT the stock clutch. That will be plenty of clutch for you, based on what you said

They're known issues. It's generally accepted that the OEM ones will last the longest.

Yeah, what drewvdw said. I didn't know this when I put in my aftermarket clutch kit, and not long afterwards the TOB started rattling.

I have the ACT clutch but for my '13 wrx. After spinning the stock clutch after going protune I needed a stronger one. After my research I went with the full face because it is also my dd. It's been about 10k miles now and I'm happy with my choice. It is heavier then the stock one but more responsive. Stop and go can be a leg workout but it has always held the power. I would also suggest going with a new OEM ToB. I used the ACT one in the kit and it needed to be replaced, no issues with the ToB since it was swapped out

Southbend Definitely

I was in same position a few times, I tried other brands of clutches that are most talked about, Exedy, ACt OEM, they did not perform to my liking and were Very stiff pedal which lead to my pedal assembly firewall competently failing and costing me 1 month downtime while SOA repaired at $5000.
So after more research I pulled the trigger on Southbend Clutch.
Has more hold than stock OEM clutch but same pedal pressure and they are from our OWN Home USA country, So most of my money is staying here.


Buy SouthBend

clutch on my 05 wrx slipped at stage2. put an EXEDY OEM clutch in. now at about 250+ WHP no slipping peak torque is around 4krpm. i went with the stock one because i dont want to blow my 5spd. although i do launch every now and again i slip the clutch and let it cool before doing it again.
it seems like if you get a gnarly grippy clutch and you dont slip it enough you could easily snap some teeth on 1st and 2nd.

If i were you i would get the clutch masters FX300. It is the most amazing clutch i have driven. It holds 408 whp and the peddle feel is like a VW. Very easy to press.

I have used EXEDY, and ACT, and i will never go back. JR and the guys at PRIME suggested it and instilled it, big thanks to them.

After having rattles on the first 3 throwout bearings my builder is finally just going to put an OEM one in. Every single one would rattle when they were first installed.

Yeah, I wasn't kidding. The time and labor just to get to a small part like a TOB is not worth using the aftermarket one. I learned my mistake and just wanted to let our community know.
