Depends on what you want to do..........bigger turbo, more air, more fuel, more power, more torque...........equals better clutch.

I ran a standard mitsi clutch on my old "nuts" 62............never had a problem with slippage, just torque steer!

took sum of the plastics out the boot and gave them a scrub with that soapy steel wool coz they had over spray on them and they came up pretty good still think i might give them a spray to make them look fresh tho but that stuff works good :)

Did you replace the Airflow meter as well?

Was it an AB one with the 2 bypass holes........not an AC with the one?

Disconnect the AFM and take it for a drive...........if the car runs normal the AFM is stuffed.

you can get the car to move but it has no power at all and just dies when you give it throttle... but it seems to run fine on idel and when revving just cant handle any load..

In an attempt to motivate you to keeping you car, I will add to this thread.

on stock boost with my stage 2 wade regrind camshaft how much power ruffly would i be making..? assuming its 110kw stock would it now be around 130kw...? or am i way off..? (im not chasing big power just wondering)

Hard to answer, but here goes.

My first Cordia had an exhaust, front mount, cut yellow wire and tc05 @ 15psi, it went well. 1st to 3rd was great but 4th and up died in the ass. I never had it dyno'd but was a great first car that put a smile on my face.

Since you referenced 130kw to the stock 110kw I will assume you are talking power @ the fly. If so, a relatively stock setup (exhaust + a few Psi) will achieve that. You are well beyond this point.

130 @ the wheels is more the figure you should be aiming for. You have a decent turbo (looks like a Td05 14b), cam regrind and 3" exhaust so you are well on your way. I suggest (at minimum) adding an intercooler to the setup also, as it is not safe to increase boost above 10 or so psi without it. With a small turbo the engine will hugely rely on boost to make the power, a front mount is all win at this point. When your done, put her on a dyno, check afr's to determine whether or not you will need an ecu to correct them.

im just going to run it oil cooled and block off the water lines..

Please take Andrews advice and water cool your turbo. The core is not designed to run oil only and therefore will not contain the volume of flow required to keep it from overheating.
