    Clutch question

    This is probably a amateur question but its better than not knowing at all.

    I just recently bought a used 04' STi.

    Brought it into Subaru dealership because it grinded everytime I went from 3rd to 4th gear.

    Had some 4th gr. synchro problem.

    Got it fixed.

    I was also informed that the clutch had to be replaced pretty soon.

    So I got it replaced.

    Now, while I am driving and even when I am not moving, I can smell the clutch burning.

    My question is..

    Is that normal because it's a new clutch?
    Also, is there a way to properly break in a new clutch?
    And Lastly, my gears seem a little stiff, is it because I got a new clutch?

    Thank you for your help

    2) who did the installation?
