The pump is relatively inexpensive. Might as well do both at the same time.

Do your homework on the clutch first. Lots of good discussion here recently.

Good luck!

Yes it is... It is also useless if you want to run anywhere up to 10PSI. Don't spend money on **** you don't need. Spend the extra on a second hand NB clutch and flywheel.

He's also got a 17- or 18-year-old fuel pump currently in his car. Given that, I wouldn't say a new pump is totally useless. At the very least, it provides cheap insurance one less thing to worry about down the road.

I'll second that by saying my pump just died. The **** I need anyway.

Hmm, very good information..

If i get a second hand NB clutch and flywheel, how much hp can i safely hold with it?

Ill do a search, but im guessing its a straight swap for the clutch?

I might just do that, because when i need to upgrade the clutch from that i can get a stronger 1.8 one.

yeah it's a good idea to do it if you can. As far as the ACT HD kit goes, the 1.6 is rated at 200tq while the 1.8 rates at 233tq.

I'm not sure that he was suggesting you get a second-hand stock clutch from an NB. BTW, clutches hold torque, not horsepower. A stock 1.8L clutch might hold ~170-180lb-ft at the flywheel, tops.
