I went down the $160 ebay clutch route, and replaced my clutch again within a month. I am now going down the $250 clutch (spec) route and am finding that even they have quality issues, most will say they're a good brand, but mines now slipping with a 7psi greddy kit.
I have a Spec stage 1 clutch in my stock WRX and it has problems slipping sometimes on inclines from a stop. It was also really chattery during break in.

i had the ebay clutch it does fine at 200 whp on up to 230 or so before slipping becomes an issue. Mine was the gripforce f1 racing stage 3, the only sucky part in the kit is the Pressure plate it is way to light.
