I bought an 02 wrx with 92k last fall, just recently had to put a new motor in it, and the new factory clutch is making a funny noise. In first and reverse it moans when I take off. it shifts fine and doesn't make noise in any other gears. I had a certified mechanic install the motor and everything else but he didn't know what the noise was so he let it slide. The noise isn't terribly loud but it sounds like an un-oiled screen door. Any ideas? Anything would help thanks!!

It only makes the noise when I'm releasing the clutch taking off from a standstill. Once I'm rolling there aren't any more noises. Would it happen to be anything to do with the break-in of the clutch?

Sounds to me like your throw out bearing is bad, possibly misaligned. Did you have it replaced when the clutch was installed?
