16.5K? That's hard to believe that could be driving style. And hard to
believe you need an aftermarket upgrade.
I just had my wrx clutch replaced at 75k (major slippage) with at least 400
autocross launches on it.
Stock clutch $950 tax, title, license and labor. That includes a $150 TO
But considering what I did to my subie clutch I don't see how yours could
wear out that early.

I dont think the early failure is attributable to the clutch parts.
Lots of those go 100k+.
Its either a defect, or driving style.
