    Exedy makes some good stock replacement clutches, similar in aggressiveness to the OEM spec clutch, but more reasonably priced. Example.

    That, or an OEM clutch would be your best bet for a stock transmission. Both are quality options.

    Personally, if your only running stock to light power mods, I would remain with the stock clutch, especially if your concerned about the trans. I stripped 2nd gear in my first 5 spd with the stock clutch...

    If you have everything under control you're going too slow.

    The stock clutch is also an exedy, at least everyone I have ever done on a Subaru is...With a new clutch you will feel a little more stiffness at first however as the clutch wears it will start to feel like your old one...
