Will it hold up?

This is what I'm looking to add to my SVTF, JRSC w/ BBK, FC TB, I have a steeda short ram now, and maybe a MAF thats about it as far as pwr adders. Will the stock driver train handle that and will it last a little while? Thanks ya'll!

i very much doubt that from a reliability point of view the clutch will need to last at least 60k and on a maxed out power it wont last 10k.

stock form the SVT has around 140torque. the 2.0 one can cope with that all day long. the SVT being designed by Cosworth every thing is over kill. the 300mm brakes, engine internals, gearbox, and most defiantly the clutch.

the svt clutches had a problem, lots of people we complaining they went around 10k miles but it would be a good idea to get a new one anyway seeing as with your setup you'll be over 200whp

The svt gearbox os only rated at 160 ft lbs. And the clutches have been known not to hold aswell

^^^ He's right, I was a victim of a faulty stock clutch and can't imagine not upgrading if I were to add some FI.
