I have a few Q's, whats the difference between a Stage 1,2 and 3 Clutch? Also...

I really want to know and have no clue. Also what is a Mass Air Censor, and is it worth buying if you're going to get a Cold Air intake, and does that mean the Cold Air Intake connects to the Mass Air Censor? And one more question, what does a Chrome Radiator hose kit do? I have another thread on this forum saying im getting a 94-95 Mustang GT 5.0, and I have good news the car investigator came today and looked at my car and im positive its totaled, I know the damage is worth more than 3G's, but the gay thing, the other idiot drivers representative called and said they would only cover 80%, and now the skank doesnt answer her phone, it was the other drivers accident 100%. So they better give me 3G's, or 2800 and I keep the car so I can sell parts(I have some stuff on the car), or Im going to small claims, wish me luck.

The Mass Air Sensor (Sensor... senses things. Mostly air ) is useless on a stock motor. You don't have to have one to get a CAI. But yes, the CAI connects to the MAF (another term for mass air sensor you'll see a lot). The chrome radiator hoses serve no purpose other than to look nice and shiny.

To answer your clutch stage question - Many times it depends upon the manufacturer - usually Stage 1 would be an organic compound disc with a slightly stronger pressure plate(sprung), S 2 alot of times will be the same pressure plate and better quality disc (i.e. organic/kevlar, 4 puck kevlar...many differant combos) - S 3 usually moves to an even stronger plate(usually still sprung) and somewhere along the lines of a full ceramic/metallic 6 button (puck) - s3's are more of a high street/ strip clutch - a little uncomfortable day to day driving - alot of people run them to say they run a stage 3 clutch but really don't need it - stage 4 and up is usually all race with an unsprung disc and a rediculous plate....

The stages in clutches also will hold up to higher hp/tq ratings.

Each stage is how much bigger your left leg is going to be.
