a few simple questions

So I'm looking to see what swap I should do, or if I should just turbo charge my ka, since I picked up a shell with a lot of parts for a kat. Not looking to be race car fast, but something worth putting money into. I have a stock auto vert, but I have a few 5 speed swap, that I'm planning on doing, being that the ka is all stock, can I use a 6 puck stage 5 unsprung clutch? Or do I have to build the tranny up? Just a bunch or curious questions that I will need to know in a coupe of weeks from now, thanks in advance

You can use that clutch but it would be a waste of money. And it will most likely break your motor and trans mounts

Unsprung clutchs are very harsh on trannys that dont hold power like KA/SR/RB20s.

Unsprung is meant for high hp cars. but if thats what you only have then go for it. Ive seen some never have an issue an some break all kinds of shit. Personally stock setup i wouldn't, but then again tranny's are super cheap
