new clutch in...but more problems arise

well....new ford performance racing clutch is installed. its so great. paid an arm and a leg after installation and part fees but its awsome. i can chirp third gear. but as always problems arise. got it back from the ford dealership. was driving for a moment and noticed a problem. not the clutch but the engine itself.

they broke my AEM CAI. it was snapped at the water bypass valve. oil was all over the place. and my engine was loosely mounted on the mounts. I paid 1k and got back more problems then i started with. so i raised hell on ford dealership and they are fixing it. so i can finally and be ready for the car show next weekend on the 7th

ya... i thought they were going to blame me cause of the after market clutch kit. and if they were not going to fix it i was going to fill a lawsuit on them. get some cash. and drop the svt motor in it. or possibly the infamous small block 350. and the jacked up thing is they had my car for a week.
