    Clutch clutch clutchy clutch

    Hey if you didn't notice im just asking about my clutch lol anyway my 04 wrx is the first manual vehicle I've owned but isn't the first I've driven. On modern cars I've noticed clutch feel is soft and easy, comforting like using a memory foam pillow for the first time. And aftermarket are hard and tough like the guy that always cut in line at the drinking fountain. So if anyone has had a stock clutch on there 04wrx or similar year, is the clutch supposed to be hard and engagement at the tippy top? Or did the previous owner possible install an aftermarket. Some friends of mine keep saying its a stage whatever or heavy duty clutch because of the pedal feel but im not sure, so I figured id ask the community 😊

    I have an 04 wrx with a stock clutch. I would say yes it has a firm clutch. Honestly I hate soft clutches like you find in newer NA vehicles. Anyways it is normal on the stock ones. Is there any mods done to the car? Or how many miles? If there are no mods is unlikely the previous owner replaced it with an after market one.

    Well I bought it as a dealership car so it was pretty much stock. Right now though from what I've done it now has a straight pipe from the cat back, AP and aem cai. There's a 102k on it. Damn I was all excited thinking I had a nice AM clutch lol when I do get an aftermarket clutch is there a particular one you recommend? No twin disc lol I drove an evo9 with a twin disc and it was weird o.O

    For $20 you can get a stainless clutch cable.
    It made a noticeable difference in my car (2013)
    For that price and like an hour to put it on, worth a try.
    Mutch better pedal feel.

    Well I honestly like the firm pedal feel, would it still keep that same feel? I'll buy it if it does just cause the SS corrodes slower 👍 any recommendations on a clutch when I comes time to replace it?

    I've been looking at reviews and comments about Greedy clutches. Mine is squeaking every time I push the clutch in. It's not slipping but I'm expecting it to fail in the coming year. I just rolled over 100k. Sorry I don't have a good recommendation other then read some posts on the various AM out there. If you are going to replace it plan for what other mods you are going to do. Ie: power mods then you might want a greedy stage 1 or something more performance orientated. Note any AM will also sound and feel different. If this is your SD you might hate it. ..

    It's an expense mod. I would not do it until you feel your clutch is slipping since then you can justify it as maintenance.
