Disconnect the wastegate so you dont build any boost. 7lbs will blow a bottom end regardless of RPM's.

If you install those injectors without a tune, you wont even be able to run your car, dont even try.

You probably over torqued the tensioner. If you make it too tight the piston will bind and the tensioner will jam in.

How exactly did you determine that they werent SFI certified? I just wonder what kind of proceedure SFI impliments to make sure people are stamping their parts properly etc. I would assume you have to submit a part to them to assure quality clearance etc, but once you get the A OK to certify your pa...

Mine worked with the factory lug nuts. Hit up autozone or whatever you have around you and asking for OEM nuts. They should work, or they should atleast have ones that will.

If you're so smart, look at the pressure plate/flywheel figure out the intolerance, photograph it and post the results.

A clutch kit is incredibly simple for people with your talent, you should be able to balance it on the end of your finger and feel how out it is.

It was hardly a claim. I looked over the very ad he posted 2 times and didnt see that statement. It isnt on any of the other auctions selling the same flywheel.

You need to learn to read between the lines... "All XTD clutch parts are SFI Certified Specification)" This doesnt mean they're certified, merely that they meet the specifications to be certified. In other words, the parts COULD be certified, but they arent. Selling you a sticker doesnt make them ce...

Well as far as the holes in the OEM flywheel, if you flip it over you can see that the stock flywheel is cast so there is going to be uneven distribution in the casting etc. The billet moly flywheels are machined right out of a solid piece of higher quality material, they shouldnt require any additi...

Not really. The crank is independantly balanced OEM. When you install the rods/pistons you can have them weighed and matched to make the best pairs possible as far as weight. Ie heaviest piston w/ lightest rod etc. They'll all be super close as is though.

I dont know how long it takes you to save your money, but if pistons are $500 and rods & pistons are $750, i'd wait a couple more weeks until you can get both. Then you know you have a bullet proof bottom end.

When you have the valve cover off, put a wrench on the cam gear and turn it to suck up the slack in the chain, see if the tensioner guide follows the chain out or not when you shift the slack to the tensioner side.

You probably over tightened the bolts on the tensioner. I've done this before, once you go too tight it will clamp the piston and it will jam in. Back the bolts off a half turn or so and see if the tensioner pops back out.
