    I bought this kit: STi & WRX Performance Parts: Exedy Clutch & ACT Streetlite Flywheel Combo, WRX 2.0L (SAVE $50.50!!).

    It came with: Excedy stage 1 clutch, ACT Streetlite flywheel, pressure plate, throwout bearing alignment tool and lube

    I installed all the parts in my garage with a help of a friend in January and since then have put on around 9,000 miles it. I still get a slight chatter when the car is cold or if it sits for a night in the damp air but overall I'm happy with it.

    I've read a lot of guys saying the lighter flywheels on bugeyes will throw engine misfire codes but I haven't experienced that. I would not recommend going with the Prolite flywheel. The 2.0 revs a lot quicker with the Streetlite than with a stock flywheel but still has some mass to help get the car moving without having to rev it up every time you need to start from a stop. If you go too light you will lose drivability.

    Choose wisely and good luck!

    Good thing you got the streetlight and not the prolight. I have the ACT streetlight paired with an ACT HDSS clutch and it feels great. I really wouldn't go any lighter with the flywheel. When I bought my car it had an Excedy flywheel that was too light and it would misfire and stall any time I would hold the clutch in.


    Nice to see my gears have a good home.

    Yea i did a lot of debate considering i found a place that had the prolight for 199.00 with free shipping. But after research i got the streetlite for 220. i figure the extra 20 bucks are worth what i want. im doing a lot more research now and building this thing right

    P.S. the gears are great

    I say go with the strut bars. You'll feel the difference all the time as opposed to just when you're on the gas with the crosspipe.

    Agreed. That is a great idea! Where in Seattle are you at? I work in the Wallingford area down by Lake Union.

    Congrats on the new car! I absolutely love mine. The utility of the wagon, simplicity of the engine and sporty ride make it the best car I've owned. Have fun with it.

    In case you haven't heard, the stock uppipe has been known to break apart and send material through the turbo. You will want to either replace it with an aftermarket catless unit or gut a stock unit. I did the former and it's been a great mod so far. Slightly quicker and earlier spool time and about 5-10 wheel hp gain for only $180. Also it's good to know that the transmissions in the '02 and '03 model WRXs are known to be rather weak. Drive it with respect and you'll be fine, but rev it up and drop the clutch from a dead stop an you may be searching the classifieds for a replacement used transmission. Just a couple quick thoughts.
