I was wondering if anyone has bought just the stage 1 kit for a 2000/2001 RS. Would the motor still blowup? Would the J&S still be mandatory or would a Apexi SAFC sufice? I'm not trying to run 13's, more like low to mid 14's. NA pwr. is too expensive and involved. Cams and such seem to do nothing. I plan on changing the clutch/flywheel reguardless. P.S.-- My suspension is how I want it.

Thank you for your help

A lot of non intercooled RS's have blown up on the other club. Since then I haven't seen a rs with out an IC.

u dont have to buy an expensive ic for your setup a saab 900 intercooler will work and piping would cost you about 25-50 bucks..just another idea

in all honesty, just wait, save up and get the intercooler, you'll be glad you did, and if you don't, you'll be pissed you didn't and out money when something goes wrong.
