Are the oem subaru branded clutches for gc8 sti still available?

I know a wide range of exedys but first I looked for oem, than I've been told that oem branded clutches are not available anymore and I can go for exedy branded or extreme or gc8 gt oem clutches but those can be not good enough for c.a. 300HP.
There are good feedbacks about extreme stage 1 from our local gc8 sti users. Comfortable to use, just a bit stiffer than oem. Therefore I decided to give a try.


Nevertheless, some other small stuff has arrived today.

Not sure what you are using Exedy wise but the std unit is more than capable of 300bhp in 5spd form......and has been for 20+years......

I am aware of many 'spoof' units however which are simply copy chinesium type offerings that would struggle with non turbo power......

In case of issues I still have an old set which was installed in the car in 2013. Sitting still in the car.

Since than car made c.a. 8kkm so clutch should be more than fine.
