    Help needed please!!! Help a noob!!!

    So I'm not a professional by any means and have limited knowledge about cars as a whole but I'm having a pretty serious issue. I tuned my 08 wrx with Cobbs stock stage two tune. It has a Cobb down pipe and high flow intake. Also a blow off valve, dunno if that matters. The car was running great until lately. When I give it gas in second, third, fourth or fifth it revs up higher then it should. Then it when I let off the gas it catches and I can't "hit it" I have to gradually give it gas. Very frustrating on the highway when you want to just go.

    You've not actually asked a question but I'd be looking for an OEM clutch kit.

    From what you have said I'd be shopping for a clutch kit.

    Curious though.. Should I go oem or get something that can handle the upgrades? If so you happen to know who makes a good clutch kit?

    What BOV? I'm guessing you haven't read the Big BOV Thread to see why you should remove it, and why it may be causing serious problems...

    OEM will handle stage 2 without issue. I'd look for the Exedy OEM kit, cheaper than from Subaru, and basically the same thing. Also, I personally recommend replacing the flywheel when the clutch is replaced, since it's not techincally servicable. But in the interest of fairness, some shops are willing to turn Subaru flywheels, so you may want to look around.

    Depending on the miles you got out of this clutch, your driving abilities may need some upgrades.

    However yes, if you don't like Subaru pricing, then

    The car has 54000 miles on it. Original clutch. This is normal?

    No it's not normal. The clutch is slipping. Whether it's premature is another issue since the clutch is a wear item and its lifespan depends on how it is used.
