    I'd use the OEM again.

    Yup, just go with the OEM again. Why put a strong clutch on it?

    With the bug eye, you want the clutch to be the weak point in the drive line, not the trans itself, go with OEM.

    It does not work, WRX/STI clutches are different P/Ns

    The stronger a clutch, the harder it is on the transmission. A clutch is cheaper to replace than a transmission.

    You should be buying the "weakest" clutch with proper torque capacity. Likely, an OE replacement or Exedy Organic clutch would be adequate. You also need to factor in the cost of a new flywheel.

    I had put a Centerforce dual friction Kevlar clutch in my Tacoma 4x4 10 years ago. I loved it, but that was also a whole different vehicle.

    Why are you beating on your clutch to start with?

    There's usually no need to replace the flywheel, if the clutch was chattering or was overheated you can usually just get it resurfaced. If it wasn't chattering, I would just replace the clutch, pressure plate, and bearing
