Mantic clutches are pretty good, but in all honesty the best bang for buck clutch is the OEM one

 

Definately resurface the flywheel too

Exedy Heavy Duty

 

Mate, it's a non-turbo forester. A heavy Duty clutch here is way over the top haha

 

Just go get a standard clutch from Subaru or exedy. Which ever is cheaper.

I know. Reason I said that is for length of life for the clutch.

The thing is though, they're very much 'same same'. The difference is, one has a heavy as all heck pressure plate, and one doesn't and they may have different friction materials but I doubt they've got more. If anything you may find more wear from the heavy duty.

 

Also, with heavy clutches like the aforementioned also introduce other wear on the vehicle a lot of people don't realise. For example more load and wear on the thrust bearings, potentially causing early failure. Flex in the firewall (metal fatigue), because you're fighting to push down a clutch. Also obviously more pressure on the clutch master and slave cylinders, obvious reasons 😛 

Theres more to consider as you'll probably realise now than just what sort of power the clutch can hold. Well intended I have no doubt but a learning point no less. Someone on here schooled me about it a long time ago lol.
