Which clutch to buy for FI?

I recently went FI with the AVO turbokit and now, after 2 months with several hard launches, two trackdays and a failed flat foot shifting attempt it seems that my clutch is quitting. I noticed slight slipping in 6th gear when accelerating on the highway the other day. I won't change the clutch immediately, but I should start to look out for one.

Flywheel-TQ is @ ~230, so a Stage 1 clutch should do the job. I want almost stock pedal feel so the exedy stage 1 seems to be the best option for me - any other suggestions?

How long does it take to change out the clutch?

I have the Exedy Stage 1 and it's pretty good. If I could go back and do it again, I would probably get the Stage 2 since it's almost identical in feel and the price is very close.

I'm not sure if it's still the case, but the Exedy Stage 1 and 2 were very hard to get a few weeks back. If you're planning on getting one in the future, you may want to order it soon and expect to wait.

Ok so several different clutches alread suggested, but which one would be "best bang for the buck"?

Shop-mechanic told me this afternoon, that they experienced a lot of "jerkiness" with the exedy stage 1 in their Subarus (mostly imprezas).

Still don't understand why everyone uses all these mass production clutches...

Southbend Clutch is hands down my favorite. Stage 2 will be fine unless you are trying to get over 350wtq. Best daily driving clutch IMO. Supra guys running 600+ all run Southbend here locally and nearly every Audi/BMW guy I know runs them. Feels like OEM, grips like the hulk.

Ok guys my clutch is slipping more and more, so I definitely need to purchase one right now. I'm really looking into the Exedy Stage 1 but there are different Part-Numbers

This is the one I found in the Exedy Catalog: 15805FW

This is the one I found on a dealers site and if you search for it you'll find an european Exedy website: TK07H833

But I don't know if any of this has actually a lighter flywheel within the kit and how much torque it can handle.

Edit: ok I found the P/N TK07H833 also in the exedy catalog - so this is only the a kit consisting of disc and cover and can handle only about 260 TQ - it's not the Stage 1 kit even though some sellers are calling it like this.
