Question 1990 1.6 with 16G Turbo, what should i do?

Hey I just bought this car from a mechanic who wanted to make it into a track car... but he ended up selling it cuz he had to make room for his other porshe Anyways the cars running alright and i'm not going to take off the turbo so since I know nothing about turbo motors, what kind of stuff should i do to it to make it run better, including maintenance? Type of spark plugs, oil, fuel, air filter... I do plan on making more power out of it and right now my clutch is slipping so should I go stage 1 or 2? lightened flywheel? I'm a young guy who has lots to learn and is eager to learn it! Please leave any messages you want... especially if it'll teach me anything

depends on how much power your putting out. If you want to be safe get a ACT HD clutch or any stage 3 clutch.
