I went with a stage 2 clutch. At the moment the car still has an auto tune and still needs all programming done. It also has a leaky VCG and exhaust leak. But here's an updated video since the manual swap.

do you know how much power you are making? You will like that clutch, it grabs pretty aggressively.

Better later then never?. Here's a video I made after the headers. Couldn't entirely floor it because it is a public road and there was cars around me. Hopefully you guys enjoy the sound.

I'm looking to build a front mount intercooler kit for my VF-Engineering stage 1kit on my car. Now Everything looks like it's an easy fit. Just cut some plastic in the bumper here and there and remove front air duct etc.. not to hard. The challenge is in the throttle body/intake manifold area. There's like absolutely no room there and I just don't see how in the heck I'm going to fit this. I'm obviously going to have to completely remove the piece made by VF that connects the SC to the throttle body. I'll have to build my own part for this. So I'm wondering if anyone has ever made a kit for this?. Or for something similar?. This is going to be a challenge.
Hi,

Well done, the intercooler looks really good. I know this thread is kind of old. but I want to do the same in my car. but could you, please, tell me What are the overall dimensions of your intercooler and where did you get it?

thanks
