Hello, I've got a 2002 wrx sedan and I've gotten it up to 285hp/271tq. My clutch is starting to slip really bad now, its been slipping for a while and now its time for a new one finally!! what clutch would you recommend for me? i would like to stay under $300 and the tranny is stock. is that to much hp for the stock tranny? thanks!!
History will tell whether your gearbox will hold; I can't. It's up to you to some extent.
If your clutch only now started slipping, after ten years, it's a good clutch. I'd replace it with OEM or the OEM Exedy. Only if it were to fail again and soon would I look for a different clutch (notice I didn't say "upgraded," I said "different" and I believe I did so for good reason).

As Matt (EJ) says, Exedy OEM replacement would be your best bet.
When you're pushing a fair amount of power, which is cheaper and easier to replace? A clutch or a whole transmission?

Ok, thanks for the help!
Lots of good advice here (that I hope you're going to follow) to stick with OEM/Exedy...
