Problems with new Exedy stage1 organic clutch..

Hi all,

Just had new Exedy stage1 organic clutch and lightened flywheel fitted to my 2005 WRX wagon and have 2 issues...
First is a serious judder when engaging gears and pulling off. Told it was due to the higher friction material grabbing more and will bed in after 500 miles.

Second is very high biting point - higher than the old clutch that came off.. told they tried 2 flywheels and this was the higher of the 2. Also told the biting point will lower once everything beds in.

Part numbers on the Exedy boxes are
CC ASY = FC04T
CD ASY = FD08H

Anyone with similar experiences of Exedy Stage1 organic clutches with lightened flywheels?

Planning on doing 500 miles next weekend to see if its true and if not returning the car for a new clutch..

Yes,vibration better after 100 miles and lots of gear changes, but biting point sighing 1cm of top travel and getting less as clutch beds in.

Any advice before it goes back to the performance company who fitted it?
