    oe exedy clutch vs. stage 1 or stage 2 upgrade

    I have a 2007 wrx 106,000mi currently stock. I plan on getting more horse power from bolt-on upgrades a little later this year, but I need a new clutch now.
    My question is will the oe clutch handle 30-40 horse power over stock? if not what would be the clutch to buy?

    im far from an expert... but I bought an OEM Exedy as well. I wouldnt trip unless youre going to be putting some serious powder down.

    Ive got the same ride and I would say go with the Exedy stage 1, if your just going to do a few powermods here and their and it will be you daily drive then get Stage 1 youll still get that oem feel, if you ever know of even think your going to track it, take the car stage 2 so it can handle the extra pounding.

    Just got my Stage 1 installed yesterday, so cant really tell you how great it is just yet since i gotta break it in, but from what i heard about it i highly recommend it to you.

    Here are my engine mods and the Stage 1 Clutch can handle them with ease.

    1300cc Injectors
    STI intercooler
    Perrin downpipe
    Perrin catback exhaust
    Perrin light weight crank pulley
    3 port grimmspeed boost controller
    spt shortram intake
    Walbro 225 fuel pump
    perrin turbo inlet hose

    It's torque that causes clutches to slip. You'll be fine.
