    2002 wrx clutch slipping

    Hwy guys just bought an 02 wrx with 80k miles!!! I love the car! But the first thing I noticed is that the clutch is slipping. I tested it buy going from 1st to 3rd and then flooring it and it slipped after 3500-4000 rpm. I'm going to be driving it very carefully until the clutch fully goes out. I want to get a new stock clutch since I have heard and read many stories on this forum with people getting a stage 2 and then boom there goes there drivetrain. So any info on where is the best place to get an oem clutch would be great! thanks!

    If you are 100% sure it is the clutch slipping than I would highly recommend a stock replacement, anything more depending on what it is can usually handle more torque, than bango! a few engine mods and chances are 1st or 2nd gear are toast. I have the original stock exedy clutch in my 02' and its still holding strong...somehow haha

    Yes I am 100% sure its slipping. I am definitly going to go with the stock replacement since I am not looking to make crazy power or anything. So the exedy oem replacement is a good clutch to go with correct?

    Yes, however I would source it other than a dealership fore you will most def. pay top dollar there...I would prob also replace the flywheel as opposed to seeing how it looks and poss. getting it machined. I bought a SACHS clutch and flywheel for my legacy from this place...
