APR Stage 1 Tuning(5/15/17) – I went back and forth about when I would tune the car. APR had a sale in May; plus, I had an opening in my work schedule that would allow me time to tune the car during the week without a loss of pay or productivity. The timing was good enough for me to make a move.  🙂  I was suitably impressed, to say the very least. I cannot believe the difference! Read this entry for details.

RSR Clutch by HS Tuning – The stock clutch is a weak point in the driveline. Mine lasted 15,000 miles with 381 lb-ft and plenty of towing putting it through its paces (34,000 miles total). This clutch uses a factory dual-mass flywheel and will hold 480 lb-ft, a limit that I don’t ever expect to exceed. It feels about the same as a Southbend Stage 2 clutch, but is quiet as stock. My car still sounds like a sewing machine.  😉  Read this entry for more information.
