    Punctuation and sentence structure are essential to getting help as your post is ridiculous to read otherwise. Do some research, don't just throw a bigger turbo on your car and call it good. Start by going Stage 2, with an exhaust not just a stainless pipe welded up to it, replace your uppipe with a catless one and get tuned. Then do every ounce of maintenance that may need done, improve your suspension, braking, handling etc. Then worry about more power.

    Ha, a clutch change is the least of your concerns. You can fry the transmission on the stock clutch. You'll obviously need a tune for those mods. FYI, punctuation wouldn't hurt... do you breath when you speak??

    I got that (barely). All I and others are saying is that you'll get more and better responses if you take the time to articulate your goals or questions fluently in your posts. It's a reflection of you. I can't take posts like yours seriously. They just annoy me and turn me into a smartass. See?


    Yet, I see you used a comma. That's a good start.
