I've got the Steeda STS, one of the first mods I did. Probably on of the best too. Love it, still solid after almost 185,000 kms. Do it!

I'd get a Exdy oem clutch kit & add a throw out bearing to the order.

I was reading another thread. This guy had the exedy oem clutch with svt header, bolt ons, and a tune and he claims it slips on hard 1st gear pull. I had CAI, svt header, and a 138k worn clutch and it never slipped yet. I plan to do CAI, header, throttle body,and a tune I don't want to buy a clutch that'll slip with those few things.

I have not gotten one yet but I've been hearing that stock clutch is the way to go for me, I don't have to much power being put down so it'll do just fine for me. The clutch should still be fine for me from before but the guy who used to own the car was a horrible driver

sleepyboy has a little over 100k on his. I I only have around 9k on mine. Do you plan on modding or not?
