clutch slipping

Hi all, noticed my 02 bugeye wrx has started slipping, so I'm going to have to sort new clutch out, should I be renewing flywheel aswell and does it make much difference getting uprated/lighter one? Also would it be advisable to get uprated/organic clutch? thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: clutch slipping

I wouldnt renew the flywheel just for the sake of it, it would just be a waste of money. If you are thinking about upgrading the flywheel to a lighted one i would do some research first as i have been told that combined with a uprated clutch it can affect your day to day driveability. I'm sure there will be guys on here that will be able to explain in more detail.....or tell me that im wrong ha ha

Eurocarparts does the oe exedy item at good money. If it's slipping you should inspect the flywheel and think about getting it skimmed - they normally do need it
