stock turbo and tranny right?

Nope, same parts (minus the ebcs and fuel pump). You might be thinking of the numbers Cobb claims for their generic Stage 2 map = 285 hp and 340 ft-lb tq. Those numbers are estimated at the crank, not actually measured at the wheels. Subtract about 20% for drivetrain losses to figure out how much that would be at the wheels and it becomes 228 hp and 272 ft-lb tq. Assuming that (1) those numbers are actually accurate and (2) that's what my car actually had, I still gained a little of both after the pro tune. I'm not terribly concerned with numbers at this point anyway since the car is my daily driver. My intention was to safely maximize power given my extra bolt-on parts beyond "Stage 2" since I'm still not quite ready to upgrade the turbo.

Correct. I'm definitely happy - it's so much smoother than it was. It's not a major jump in power, but I can feel it.

John (man show) has upgraded 5 spd gears. Because his gears already broke. But, he does have a stock turbo.

Foiled, john beat me to the post. Lol

Clutch on the Dyno

I am going to upgrade my turbo here in the next month. I have the supporting mods. I was thinking about upgrading my clutch at the same time. I know there is a clutch breakin period where you are not supposed to over heat the clutch. If I install the clutch and do a dyno would that overheat the clutch?
