I have seen a few but never had a clutch before. I am building a turbo car with clutch and Lenco. Any pointers, do you just leave on full boost and manage power w/ clutch and timing or what?

You will still want to use a boost controller. It is cheaper and easier to manage the power with an EFI system and a boost controller than it is to burn up discs and have to resurface the everything all the time. Hire a good clutch guy for the first year out with it. It will be money well spent.

Joe Oplawski and Dan Saitz both are very capable of setting up a clutch. Both of them are also well versed in turbo/clutch combination's. Dan has been running a clutch for years on both single and twin turbo power plants and has done very well. Joe tuned Chuck Samuel to multiple Fun Ford, WFC, and many other Championships.

I run a lenco CS3 5 speed with a Tilton 3 disc clutch. I find it easier and way cheaper to manage wheel speed with my haltech than with the clutch.

I would strongly recommend a 5 speed it will make a happy combination. What kind of floater. And facings are on your clutch. Also the 2.07 will make a good. 2nd gear

I know nothing about a clutch. I know the floaters are bronze, as far as the disks I dont know.

I strongly suggest a 4-speed trans. I have been dealing with SBF's single clutch cars for about 10 years now. A 5-speed will promote shake on the gear change. Bronze floaters are a great start, do you know the brand of clutch? That is also way too much rear gear for that package.

He also makes one wicked boost controller. we went from an AMS to the HyperKontroller & are very happy with the switch.

Plus Joe is just a fun guy to have around. His boost controller is just simply amazing.
