So recently I just bought a 06 legacy gt that has had the motor swapped to a 2.0 he says he used the 2.5 flywheel with a stage 2 competition clutch the only issue is it doesn't feel like a stage 2 I have to pump the clutch on hills to get any torque and it feels like a boat I think it needs a new one but what should I use since the motor has been swapped any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's a spec b idk if that changes anything on the 5 speeds though clutch wise. the whole time I've had it the torque hasn't been there and it doesn't feel like a Subaru its slower than my na 02 2.5 rs due to what I think is the clutch

Have you tried bleeding the clutch? Clutches don't go bad that easily unless they are beat on. They can usually last over 100,000 miles.

Yea if you have a pump a new-is clutch, bleed it to start, make sure the slave isn't leaking etc. You may not need a new clutch unless properly diagnosed.

The slave is fine that would only help it into gear the car after in gear will slowly get up I have to push the clutch in and out on hills so rpms don't drop in first gear to get going then once it gets going it struggles to get up only from a stop

You can adjust the clutch engagement point a bit, if you adjust the clutch master's rod.

This video is of a BRZ, but it's the same thing for an LGT or RS or STI or pretty much any hydraulically actuated Subaru clutch.
