No idea. Na's are normally cable. There's not many that are hydraulic.

Are you suggesting that you're not happy with your current clutch pedal? It can be a pain of a job but pulling the master and slave apart, cleaning everything and re-bleeding has always improved my pedal. This way you can check the condition of the master/slave piston seals. Clean these bits in fresh brake fluid by the way, the rubber is fussy

You might be able to get the seal by itself from Subaru, but I've seen the whole master cylinder plunger/spring/seal thing come as a kit from Repco. It'll be pretty obvious if the seals need replaced, they will look perished/worn/pitted
