i had 40,000 on mine (9k boosted) before i changed it. it still was working great, only slipped at 9-10psi.. anything less and it would hold fine..

I had about 25k on my stock clutch before it started slipping, but I was also kinda rough on it for that 25k. I suprised it actually lasted that long. But I took it in to the dealer and told them that it was slipping and hard to get into gear. Well turns out that they had a TSB on this for my car. So it was warrentied [:D] So now i'm just taking it easy on this stock clutch until I upgrade I guess lol. Clutch and flywheel set ups are kinda pricey for these cars.

i would assume it will last the life of ur car. it ALL depends on ur driving habits. if you drive 50 miles one way to work all highway, it will outlast the car. if its all city and hard accellerations and hard shifts, then a heck of alot shorter!!

mine lasted 6k due to the common problem of the master cylinder failing...that seems to be the most common cause of failure on these cars, not driving them hard as would be expected..

if you need a new one and arent making more than 240whp id suggest the exedy oem kit from focussport. holds the power and is only $425 for clutch and flywheel

air in the hydraulic lines? i had a huge issue with that as well and the dealer bled it out many many times and it has eventually gone away
