    Question XTD Stage 1 Clutch Kit

    I have a 2004 WRX and I have 111,000 miles on it. I am going to replace the clutch as the biting point has gotten really high. Everything operates smoothly and no problems changing gears. I noticed that a new XTD Stage 1 Clutch Kit is for sale on ebay. Varying prices from $150 to $225. Has anyone ever used one of these clutches. I will be doing the change out myself to safe some dough, but I don't want to save on the labor and install a piece of garbage. Any thoughts or opinions? I am sure to have more questions as the time for the clutch change draws near, such as what size roll pins hold the drive shafts in place? Do you still need to wind an M6 bolt in to release the clutch bearing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I wouldn't get something that nobody has heard of...I haven't heard of them, and I'm an old man.

    You're better off looking up an Exedy OEM replacement. Plenty of holding power, and as good as or better quality than Subaru OEM, which is what you want. If you're going to pay the mad loot, or take the mad time to do the change yourself, you don't want to put garbage in, otherwise you're going to have to pay more, or take more time...when you have to do it again.

    Make sure you resurface or replace your flywheel at the same time.

    Subaru says not to resurface the flywheel, but people have done it without issue. Personally, I'd just replace it so I didn't have to go back and redo it later

    There are affordable kits with Flywheels included. An F1 Clutch Kit with 9 lb flywheel for $358. Exedy is about the same price. Is the flywheel change out a large job, or bolt off, bolt on. After breaking into the clutch, I suppose all jobs are easy in comparison.

    Way too light of a flywheel. You'll hate yourself for installing that. ACT Streetlite is about the only LWFW I'd recommend. Otherwise, a new OE one. Be aware of the drivability issues with them before going LWFW.

    Thanks. That is information I need. I will check out the ACT you mentioned.
