    whats a good stage 2 clutch

    I had the 6 puck sprung ACT in my wrx that was about 350hp and 410tq. Loved it, never slipped. Takes a bit getting use to but it's nice knowing that your clutch will hold. If you have the cash get the exedy twin disc setup.

    Clutches are rated on torque, not horsepower. What does your tuner recommend?

    Depends on the year model and how it's driven. I've seen plenty of people break them at stock power levels.. Early 02 I wouldn't trust past ~260wtq, late 02-03 maybe ~290wtq.. 04-05 around 320wtq, 08+ should be okay up to 350wtq, but it really depends on how you drive it.

    There are some EFI classes out there.. I don't know anything about Cobb specific, but general knowledge about tuning carries over pretty well.
