why a built engine for 200-250? With a good tune it will be safe. I mean if you just want a built engine to have one that's cool.

He's just mad that you've come to your senses regarding power levels and we can't pick on you anymore.

For reals though. 200-250 rwhp is easily attained on a stock longblock. No need to build for that power level.

You want your car faster.... So you want MORE than 200-250 then??? if you plan to stay below 250, stock is good to go with proper management and tune. If you want more than that, the build would then be money well spent.

But then at that point(250-300hp+) you have to look at a bunch more supporting mods: transmission options, rear end options, brake upgrades, cooling upgrades(oil and coolant), bigger exhaust, bigger clutch, more expensive turbo with externally gated manifold, ect., bigger and more expensive tire to hold the power.

The list goes on.

Built engine will hold your power.

"Stage 3" clutch won't.
