    Stock clutch. What year/model is your car?

    Also, you say that you are "working towards a stage 2 tune." Does this mean you're not tuned? Those mods necessitate a tune on most model Subarus. Why do you have a FMIC???

    Front mounts are helpful at very high horsepower levels. At Stage II, the stock intercooler will work fine, although if you can afford a larger top mount, it would be helpful.

    You don't need a stronger clutch at Stage 2.

    On this forum? It's general consensus that you will see a decrease in performance at your current modification level. You will experience much greater turbo lag with a a FMIC over a comparable TMIC. My recommendation is to sell that FMIC and buy a quality TMIC like the processwest unit.

    The one that goes on top

    Zax mentioned Processwest...one of the best quality TMICs you can find. Even comes with a splitter to fit to the hood scoop to properly flow air through the TMIC.

    As for clutch...OEM should work best for you.
