3) No front mount with that much power is going to be interesting.

Will put in an ACT street clutch with stock flywheel (refinished) coupled with AndrewTech gears (they're about 5 miles from the house).

For now (until I save a few more grand), will stick with stock clutch. Rather burn out the clutch than explode the tranny.

May eventually go with a FMIC; for now though, the larger MRT should suffice. Again, a dollar issue. (I figure this "Stage 1" of the build will run about $7K...)
