Thanks for the reminder. I guess I should clean my air filter. Last time I did that was at least 100,000 miles ago.

I'm hoping that turning it down won't affect the balance. And it is "only" running at 50,000 rpm for seconds at a time. But there are balancing services available if needed.

Nothing wrong with the OEM clutch. If you have OEM power why go aftermarket?
Just because something costs more doesn't make it better.
