FI Time

Hello everyone, I'm rather new here. Just started posting that is. I'll be joining the air force soon, and will have some extra cash adding up since i will not be going off to my 3rd year of school. That means its time for some forced induction. TerboH time. I'm pretty new to the turbo game and ive been reading a bit, but im a little unsure of some reliability. So heres a few questions i hope yinz could answer.

1. Is the motor internals build up a must?
2. New clutch a must? If so which stage would be the safest
3. How do oem axles handle 225-300hp?
4. Hows this kit look
http://www.precisionturbo.net/produc...c=101&dealer=n

Am i missing anything partswise?

Thanks for even opening this thread. I'll be checkin up.

theres a few nice zx3's around me, id really like to get something set up. Me and a friend have a little car club called pitch black. He has a cobalt ss/sc so its not a focus, but we're looking to meet up with some people and get some nice pics this summer.
