Where are yall from? Do i have to upgrade clutch as soon as i install the supercharger ? I may not have funds to do it all at once cant i get by with stock clutch as long as im not driving crazy til i get more funds.
Its highly recommended to upgrade the clutch because you will be making a lot more hp and tq which the stock clutxlch just cant properly handle. Youll still be able to drive it fine if youre driving like a normal human being but of you start to push the car hard and rev it out youll just get clutch slip and prematurely wear it out faster. Im in FL

I suggest to do the clutch, motor mounts first. Your engine is not making the power on a Dyno if the clutch cannot transmit it. Hard to get a proper tune if your engine is only at 60% load. Dyno shops around me are about 130 an hour, so it pays off for the car to be ready when it gets on the Dyno.

If it's really 2 weeks longer to get a clutch, I would think it'd be much less frustration to wait the 2 weeks and do things correctly.
