Oahu Hi
Im not too sure about the C2 kit but as with any boost in Tq you might want to think about doing the clutch first. I have see quite a few cars fry the stock clutch on the dyno when a turbo was added. Just a precaution...

Well, clutch is agood idea. We had some install when right after the clutch was dead. Not after a few miles, just right after the install on the first ride.
Wait with the cams a bit. I am going to test them as well.

Yeah, go with the clutch now. What fun would it be to blow your clutch when you get the turbo, or get the turbo but have to take it easy while breaking in the clutch. Get the clutch now and break it in a little, then order the kit and drive a lot to pass the time.

Yep, clutch was gone instantaniously in my case...
Be prepared and do the clutch first... it will be broken in when you get the turbo...

the TRD clutch is fine for basic bolt ons and the occasional nitrous spray..but i would not use it in a f/i scenario.
