Selecting clutch kit for '05 Legacy GT
The throwout bearing in my '05 Legacy GT with 95K miles is shot. Ordering a TSK3 in case the snout is messed up, and trying to figure out the best clutch kit to order. Looking for OEM feel, have no power mods. Should I get the Exedy FJK1001FW kit and replace the flywheel, or get a kit without a flywheel, or what?

exedy stage 1 with wrx smfw....i like it alot and im around 310whp and 350tq and it holds well. similar feel to oem but a little heavier but after a while you dont even notice.

Cartman is right there are a ton of posts on this topic.

However- I have the FJK1001FW and the single mass fly wheel. I personally wouldn't recommend it. I'm still stock and I burn that clutch all the time where I never had an issue with the OEM clutch. It engages very fast so sitting on a hill is nearly impossible. If I try and take off fast by feathering the clutch, it just slips and I have to smell clutch for the next 5 miles.

You get what you pay for I guess.

Contact either one of them, they will sell you what you need.

Don't waste your time and money going somewhere else. These guy's know these cars.

Just had the clutch replaced in my 05 Outback XT. Went with the OEM clutch and flywheel from the 2007 LGT which happens to be made by Exedy (Not Sachs like the 05 clutch)
