$220 to my door new and looking to mate it with the Exedy STG1 Clutch Kit.

All opinions appreciated.

I know you've been on the fence on this one, but sounds like you want to do it.

I don't have experience with lighter flywheels on turbo cars, generally you'd want a heavier flywheel for a turbo car. How heavy is the stocker? Lighter flywheel will make the car more free-revving, easier to rev-match and more fun to drive, but you also won't be able to engine-brake as much.

I'd be curious to drive a Subaru with a lighter flywheel and clutch, I'm sure it'd be fun.

So far outside of my expertise.
I'd love to hear more of the pros & cons though!

Stocker is like ~20lbs. Oh what the Hell, I just bought TGV deletes and they are a non-power getter. :icon_wink:

FWIW, Exedy makes most OEM replacement clutches, installed one in my Miata along with a lightened OEM flywheel (down to 13.5lbs from stock 18lbs).

Been running an ACT Streetlite and Exedy Stg 1 clutch for quite a while now. I also had the same setup on my WRX. I love it. Now, it's be just as long since I drove with the stock stuff so I can't tell you the actual differences. I've only had ~3 misfire CELs over the course of a few years. I am also considering going with a lightened pulley just to see what happens.

As for engine braking, I seem to have plenty.
