Default how to make clutch feel heavier?

I just replaced my clutch, my old one had a nice heavy feel to and had an easy time driving with it. The new clutch is really light and I'm not used to it so im having a difficult time with it. Is there any way to adjust how the clutch feels?

You'll get used to it in a week or so and never think about it again... Just how it goes with new clutches.

My buddy had the same issue and thought Subaru screwed up his car after they installed his new clutch. He said it took about a week until he got use to it. I drove his and have to say I like the heavier clutch feel of mine too.

sounds like you got an exedy clutch... they work great but they are really soft... and the act is a heavier clutch. i went from a Spec stg2+ to an ACT HD-SS and there is a big difference of how it grabs and how heavy it is and im pretty sure both of those clutchs are alot heavier than stock
