Roughly $1000 for an aftermarket clutch and flywheel here in SoCal. This being an ACT clutch, flywheel, and labor.

Some of the locals charge around $300-$400 in labor if you bring the parts.

From a dealer you are looking at at LEAST $800 for the clutch and labor, which may or may not include the flywheel.

I'm glad this thread was started because I am newly in need of a clutch as well. My dealer quoted $1500 parts and labor for the OEM clutch. From what I've read this is pretty steep. I have another shop that I've been to that I trust that I know would do it for less (I've taken my Mazda and my FXT there with good results); unfortunately, they're not Subie specific and weren't very knowledgeable about aftermarket clutches for Subies (he did mention that Centerforce was usually his standby). I was wondering if anyone could give any suggestions about which clutch I should put in. I've got a stock '04 FXT, but I do lots of rush hour driving in the city as well as plenty of high speed highway miles. I don't do any towing or racing, but my driving can get a little spirited at times. Should I stick with stock or should I go aftermarket? BTW, this is my second stock clutch in 90,000 miles.

I stuck with OEM, as I wasn't looking at any performance mods. The dealership's quote was very close (and lower than a few) quotes that I got from other recommended shops.
