Race car build- start 02/06/10 finish April

The plan is to build a track only (road race) car and have it done by April. I've been stashing parts for quite some time and this is the year. I'll post the build as I proceed, it's cold so weekend only build for now.

What I have planned for the drivetrain.
Stock SVT engine 82,000 miles
Vortech SC- big boost with water to air intercooler
Torsen LSD

I'm hoping posting helps keeps the motivation, and just as important I get some good advice.
My first question is what clutch/FW would you recommend, I'm thinking CM stg 5?

Yes I have a good Team helping me, Seth, Eddie, & Bobb. The plan is to just get it on the track this year and then work on it as a driver. I posted here because I think the FI will pose the most challenge.

Really, how so? The Vortech is a bolt-on kit...and isn't the stock I/C water to air?

Not bashing but why go through all the time and trouble and throw a SC on it? Looks great tho.
