Everybody always wants more, so why not do it right the first time. Instead of spending more money later.
I totally agree. You'll just end up kicking yourself in the *** later.

to answer your orginal question, you should be fine for the full kit. thats why its called the full kit cuz it has pretty much everything you need. clutch is going to be in your future but you wont need anything too crazy. i guess some people dont realize your not trying to be a dyno queen here and just want something a bit better than stock. :/

if you read my above posts, i think you'll find that we agree. the OP stated he was willing to upgrade his injectors (again, please read first - i already suggested he do that) and all the other complementary upgrades; i stated that for a few bucks more he could just step up to the 2.87 pulley and be done.

A new clutch really isn't necessary. The stock clutch is fine for a Vortech system.
The low-end torque is practically the same, therefore a beefier clutch really isn't needed.

I agree with this to a point. I am not in it just to post dynos and say hey look at the numbers I am putting down. On the other hand it is a significant investment and I don't want to drop $7k and be disappointed with the result.

I like the idea of a work in progress and the ability to upgrade if needed. Installer is telling me hfc's are a must and also suggests cams and headers. This could easily get to $10k and I am not really comfortable with that.

I am leaning towards full kit with hfc's and seeing the result. I have the ssv intake and it doesn't get much cred but in my experiance with it it pulls way stronger than oem from about 5500. With the v3 I think it would really come alive.

I appreciate all the feedback.

That was a good call. There is tons of info in that thread. If I look at all the replys here I would end up not doing anything due to the conflicting opinions
