Default Next Mod?

I have a Ganz CAI w/K&N Panel filter, PROECM Chip, Borla Headers, Stromung Catback, and Mr Josh's pulley for my current power mods. I was wondering, should I buy a ACT Clutch and Exedy 9lb flywheel next, or should I get some Cobb Street Cams?

Hey,
I would go this route:
cobb cams
clutch and flywheel at the same time

I think you should do the cams since the clutch will be able to handle it as long as its still in decent shape, and when you are able to, do the fly and clutch at the same time to save labour cost and time since the flywheel swap in an extra 10 mins during the clutch install.
That should be a fun set up, but go with the cams first. When I had these mods, my clutch was around 2 years old and it slipped a little when driving hard between shifts (the nitrous was useless, the clutch diddnt hold one bit with it), the new clutch made a great differnce when it was combined with the cams and other mods.

Good luck! I see your tax return was pretty decent!

Yeah, my tax return would be nice if it ever gets here I bought the Borlas for 270 shipped, so I had to buy them right away. Did the Random Tech Cat make a noticeable difference on your car? I was planning on doing the clutch and flywheel at the same time also, no reason to pay double labor.. Another question. At the stock redline, which cam was faster? The Street or Club Racer cam?

Yeah, it did, i felt much more power all through the band (especially since I had a cat from a stock 2.2L replacement cat on my car when I got the motor), and the sound is really good, but it still rattles a bit. No where near as much as before, but it still does, i need those exhaust hangars, i bet they will fix the noise.

I figured I diddnt need to tell you to do them both at the same time! I still need to change flywheels becuase the 9lb did not come during the install of the motor (it was late, very late) so we put it together with the 14lb flywheel.

I would like to try equal length headers on my car for a week just to see if I like the sound and gains, but teh borlas are fine for me, i love the sound.

The swapping of the stock cat to a high flow cat will make a major difference. Right now, your stock cat is what's holding you back from having a free flow exhaust system and that does cut a lot of power.

My friend has the exact same setup you have but he already installed a lightweight flywheel and clutch. I on the other hand only have an MRT header back exhaust and a Cobb Intake and we were neck and neck in the quarter. I was gaining on him in the upper range though.

Yeah, it was a huge difference on the motor, i broke it in with the 2.2L cat eventhough I have a 2.5 RS it was the only think we had to replace the random with (I had to send back my random tec b/c it was faulty) and when i put the highflow back on the car felt much much better.

Joe- Im getting tuned this monday (I know there were a lot of false dates before, but this one is for sure, we have a new wire (the last one broke so we couldnt tune). Then i go to the 1/4 next weekend on saturday to see what times it can do.

Are you going to order the suff when the return comes in? Hope its soon.

Yeah, I'm going to order everything when my money comes in. I just hope everything makes a huge difference over the power my car has now.

I would think that the club racer.. but not by much if any... since it should have a higher redline for them.. but i think it might be SLIGHTLY faster right near redline. What is the normal redline for the clubs? I think it's around the low to mid 7k's right?

Dan, did you get your car tuned? How is it? Which cam would you recommend? Is the Spicy cam gutless at low rpms? Thanks.
