Just with those upgrades an oem clutch wouldn't hurt....... If money's not an issue though go with a stage 2 it's a lot firmer and more responsive

Personally would get a stage 2 or 1 so you have room for later on if you ever do more modding. And it will feel a lot better.

Others is so much you could do just depending on what you want to spend. I would say with the mods now maybe do gears 3.73 or 4.10 w.e you prefer short throw shifter. Are you running stock heads? If so you could do a set of gt40 heads and Intake upper and lower if your running stock there too. Then maybe some cosmetic mods such as tinting things and new wheels and tires.

Yes cobra rims are great I have them on my 94. And even with the mods I told you, your car will still be a very nice street drivable car and won't be making insane power at all. If you drive a lot then go with 3.73 gears. And these gt40 heads and intakes can be picked up cheap and pretty much everywhere. Just put some money into the head replacing and cleaning everything and the same with intakes. If you ever do all that if your car should then be put on the dyno to get a tune then she will be running mint.

Lol no need to count the bolts. If you have them already then you should know does your car really take off really hard at a stop? If you want you can count the rotations. Just look up a how to video on how to check gear ratio.

Also you speak of stage 1, 2 or 3 but that means nothing as not all manufactures use those models.

A decent little clutch is the King Cobra clutch and will hold decent power.

Also upgrade you clutch cable, quadrant and adjuster so no more burning of clutches.

The rims I have on my 89 are SSR Integral A2 rims 17 X 9 produced by SSR Performance not the Cobra Rims.
All you need is a 5 lug conversion with the 94/95 spindles in front and a 5 lug conversion in the rear and you should be able to run the Cobra Rim on your 92.

If you don't already have the 5lug conversion front and rear this will tell you what you need to do.

the only definitive, sure fire way to tell your rear end gearing is to take the diff cover off and count the teeth on the ring and pinion gears. I thought my 91 had 3,73s based off the tire/ driveshaft rotations and when I had to take the rear end apart, I counted the teeth only to find out it was 3.08's.
