So I made a post about two weeks ago...my car is about 109k and my stocker clutch was slipping, and badly. In case some of you read that post, yes, I made it to two weeks thanks to the AccessPort Economy Map and geriatric driving on my part. Thankfully, I have since replaced my clutch with an Exedy Stage 1 Organic and gave my car its Stage 2 balls back.

In case some of you are looking at this clutch, here are my impressions of this clutch.

Pros:
* Feels almost stock (a little more push), and obviously can handle more punishment than the stocker
* Seems to work very well with the stock flywheel

Cons:
* Engagement point is lower than I'm used to...then again, I was driving a massively slipping clutch for two months, so maybe I'M the one that's off lol

Overall, it's a very solid clutch. I'll let you guys know if I encounter any issues with it, but, as Rich from Precision Tuning told me, if I could make the stocker last 109k, this thing will last even longer. Sweet.

Btw, shameless plug for Precision Tuning, they have a very good special for this clutch...$799 installed, as well as the peace of mind that your car is being worked on by the best Scooby shop on the East Coast :) http://www.precisiontuning.com

Yes, Exedy does make the stocker Subaru clutch (hence, why I believe it feels very very similar to stock)...the Stage 1 Organic is the upgraded model, basically.

OEM Clutch: http://www.exedyusa.com/oe/KSB03
Stage 1 Organic: http://www.exedyusa.com/15802

Fundamental difference between the two = higher clamp load on the Exedy Stage 1, hence the slightly higher effort needed.

The Stage 1 Organic I feel is a bit grabbier than the stocker, but not by much. I had some "bucking bronco" launches getting used to it for the first hour, but I got used to it after driving through I-76 rush hour stop and go traffic :p

thanks for the review on the clutch, and i'm also happy to see a good review on a scooby shop in the philly area. i wanna take a ride up to JSC to see what kinda stuff they've got on hand
how many miles you got on the clutch now?

The new clutch is officially past its "recommended break-in" of about 500-1000 miles, and I don't even notice the extra effort anymore...it feels just like it should. The engagement point is definitely lower than the stocker, though I'm sure you can adjust that with the pedal.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this clutch, and (cross your fingers) it should last me a good long time.

Now about that annoying exhaust leak between my downpipe and midpipe... :mad:

Exedy Stage 1 Clutch

Your clutch feels stock because it is stock.:confused: You shouldn't be too hard on it or you will be needing a clutch again. Good Luck! :whoa:
