Yo didn't you have a pussy ass eclipse?
And what do you mean your gonna dyno it and hope for some gains? You think a clutch is gonna add HP or somethin son? All your gonna get is a stiffer clutch pedal.
If there's nothing stock with your stock one, save your money and buy a Cobb accesport instead.

Smh

shit you caught me. yeah i just bought an sti body kit and bolted it on. also got some gold bbs rims to make it look real. a lighter clutch and flywheel will help with acceleration. torque numbers are gonna be different. smh.

how will torque numbers change from a clutch and flywheel. i understand the onset of the power band will arrive faster than previous but only from the lightened rotational mass of lighter flywheel. and i dont mean its gona start at a earlier rpm opposed to a later rpm but the time it takes the engine to reach it might shorten. this isnt increase but more so a decrease in parasitic power loss. or am i just imagining this all wrong

Yes, that is correct. A lighter flywheel requires less power to spin thus decreasing parasitic power loss.

hmm is a td03 bad? im still new to turbos but that's not the one im getting. i just took their picture from their site and i guess i didnt realize that they use the same pic for all their turbos
