Size of the Pulley and amount it overdrives ... the JCW uses a 14% pulley , I went with the 15% for now as it requires no additional mods the higher ones need additional mods to support it

Default first engine mods

Are the $2k stage II kits any good or is better to select mods seperately? I already see 15% pulley is best borla exhaust is to much, which cpu and which intake is best? My first mini, this looks like fun bought a 64 bug brand new and loved building it.
