    Time for a new clutch! What should I buy?

    I have a stock 03 WRX. It is time to do the clutch but I was wanting some opinions on what brand I should go with. I am going to be bumping up the engine up a bit but not to crazy... Like 280HP? I don't want a super stiff pedal but want to put in something that will last. Also what all should be done while I have it tore apart? flywheel, etc... Any thoughts? Thanks!

    It wouldn't be a bad idea to do the transmission mount / crossmember bushings, since they'll be off the car anyway. Shifter bushings, as well.

    I third it all. OEM replacement is fine for most daily driver applications, even when upping the power above stock.
