I want that instant grab. sprints are all we get around here, no straightaways for top end speed...

again, thanks for everyone's opinions! keep 'em coming!
Your car is fairley stock, So the Exdy oem replacement would be a great upgrade for you. It does get rid of the factory dual mass flywheel= a lighter chrome moly flywheel. That will last a long time. Put the $ difference into a steeda sts= short throw shifter & a tune. If you want a cheap motor mod= do a bsd= balance shaft delete plug. Remove the balance shafts & plug the oil feed hole. Removes 18 lbs of dead weight & less rotating weight & you'll find your motor holds 6qtrs of oil now. Win win.
