    Exedy Stage 1 clutch, and ACT prolite flywheel

    I have an 02 wrx with a cbe eventually going tbe and stage 2. My clutch is about to go out so I am getting some prices. Would it be a good idea for me to get the Exedy Stage 1 clutch kit with an ACT prolite flywheel. It's only 739 so it's not that expensive.

    Not sure how many miles are on your car, but i wouldnt move up to a harder clutch with just a stage 2. Your trans will most likly brake with any type of hard shifts. I had my stock clutch last stock for about 15k stage 2 for another 15k and stage 2.5 for another 46k then he clutch went. But as soon as i put a stage 1 clutch in i broke my trans with in 3k just on the stage 1 clutch. MY02 just stay with the stocker.

    it has 69 thousand miles. The owner of the clutch shop recommended going for the stage 1. He said that it will last quite a bit longer than the oem clutch, but going any higher of a stage will break the transmission. He also said that I needed to get a new flywheel so I figured why not get a lightweight flywheel. There is the ACT lightweigh flywheel or the prolite. What are the pro's and cons? Also he has not pulled the clutch out yet, he just said in his experience he has never been able to resurface the flywheel.

    i would keep the stock flywheel.. just take it to napa or carquest to be resurfaced for like $35
    supposedly there are misfires with a light flywheel, so IMO why spend more money to have more problems..

    He said that it with a stage 1 i would be okay for stress on my gears, but the stage 1 would last a lot longer than the oem one. and if I went with the oem should I get the ACT streetlite flywheel?

    I guess it just comes down to who you would rather trust. The guy who will be doing nothing besides putting in your clutch, taking your money, and may have never seen a WRX before in his life. Or the people who also have the cars, and been there and done it already.

    You said 69K at stage one on an 02 is not that many miles, with not that much power. Its alot cheaper to replace something stock if your not going to up grade power. I never had a problem with my light weight fly wheel, then again i really didnt get to drive my car that long before i broke my trans, with the upgraded clutch. I would just go with a stock clutch and put in a light weight flywheel. Change everything you can while the trans is down, it will save you 500 to 600 bucks down the road.

    My clutch is going now as well I have 70K I am was going to go with a stock replacement flywheel to complement the new clutch, is it worth going with a lighter flywheel? I know it will make the engine gain rpms faster but how much power would that translate on a WRX? Anyone care to chime in?
