    Yeah great story there, had an exedy stage II clutch kit with street light flywheel .... everything needed for the install. Brought it to my local Subaru service department (Collier Subaru of Winter Park in Florida) they did the install. Well they messed up the throw out bearing and it destroyed the clutch and then my master cylinder failed and everything just went to poop. Whats even better is the dealership closed down and went out of business so I had no one to warranty the work, if it was a SUBARU OEM part it would have been covered but since it was stage II it wasnt. OH well, whatever.... crap happens. Im still just confused on this RPM spike deal. its real annoying and dont know whats casuing it.

    Well I adjusted my Cruise Control cable slightly and it seemed to settle the high rpm idle so hopefully this was the problem. Is this something that needs to be adjusted or corrected at times with differences in weather? Just curious.

    Sorry to hear about the clutch problems. Seems like a perfect Murphy's Law at work.

    As fas as the CC cable, did you loosen or tightened it?

    I had high idle problems at one point (up to 3500rpm at idle) when it got hot outside, and I was stuck in traffic. So, following some 'broscience' post somewhere I loosened the CC cable all the way, and it went away.

    I had a Ford Fiesta that would rev to 5000 RPMs between shifts. It was a sticky throttle cable. (Don't laugh at my Fiesta I had no cash at the time but it was still fun to drive on back roads of Scotland...)

    I might be way off but it's a thought.

    There was a recall about the cruise control cable for bugeyes - not sure if that applies to the blobs.

    Thanks but everyone knows that blobs > bugeyes all day long.

    Last time I checked the only recall for 05 (wagon in this case) was tail light bulb plastic covers not being red due to manufacturing problem or something like that. Not really sure it would help high idle.
