With my 2.0 subaru around 300hp I ran a Stage 3 and a 6 puck per the recommendation from the shop I got the engine from.


My current 2.5 subaru is just over 400hp and I run a dual disk with a stage 2

i too run a dual disc stage II and it sure does have a nice easy pedal compared to the stage 4 single i ran on another engine.

i would call kep for sure but to be honest...... if budlight is stage 2 on a 228mm flywheel then i would say a stage 2 would be fine for you. that is of course if you have the same size flywheel or larger. i believe the 228mm is called the 9". since you running a stcok flywheel dia and stock trans you get to choose from stock sizes. i am not sure but i bet they are 10" or 11" stock.

I am running a 228mm stage II pressure plate.  No issues with any slippage so far.  KEP (Kennedy Engineered Products) are usually very helpful in getting you the correct clutch.  In fact their web site says you will need to know HP, TQ and driving style when contacting them.

Motor and Drivetrain / Subaru clutch upgrade
« Last post by BrianN on May 20, 2020, 09:06:29 PM »
I am planning on upgrading my clutch this year for some added torque. I am guessing 350 ft/lbs when I finally get it dialed in. I have a lightened flywheel and I think just a stage 1 clutch now. I would prefer to keep the flywheel since it is newer. I have been researching holding ability for different stages, but getting extremely different answers. And of course none of the charts consider sand. Anyone have suggestions on the best way to determine what I need? Stock 2.5 sohc Subaru w/ small turbo. 30" tall paddle tires.  And I  am definitely not a "stop at the bottom of a hill and dump the clutch" guy.

Skipping a couple steps in the journey,I'll jump to the initial sand outing. I have a Fortin 5 speed sequential driven via torque converter. I use a dry sump with 2 1/2 gallon capacity for the engine and the torque converter shares the engine oil in lieu of ATF. Yes,I run engine oil in the converter. One sump feeding a 2 pressure section dry sump pump with 4 suction stages.

Anyway................the 2 oil coolers were not doing the job so ,me being me,I opted to replace them with a big ass Setrab cooler with a 1950cfm Spal fan. I'll post a couple pics later. To get the thing in though I had to take 1/3 of the friggin car apart to get it in place since I thought I made this thing plenty big when I was building it but ,WOW, was I wrong about that. :m

I also transferred one of the original coolers to the gearbox/ring and pinion lube system to keep the gearbox/ring and pinion happier. All in all ,I hope my slight heat issue is behind me now.

mine looked clean but then again you know as well as i do.... looks don't mean $hit  :m i decided to divorce the pump from the tank for simplicity. i still do pre fer the pump in the tank soley because it is a cleaner package and quieter.

as far as a pre cleaner on mine , i used the bag screen that came with it.
Same here. They get clogged really easy. Walbro sells replacements. Mine were barely slightly blackish . I cleaned the shit out of the new teflon lined hoses I assembled but apparently not well enough.I thought i did a really good job of it too! Apparently not.
