Coupe Turbo (2wd)

Hi all.
    Just wanted to let everyone know that I have installed a 1982 5kt 
motor into my 1982 Coupe with the old style f.i. and Ox sensor (my 
car never came with one becouse it's Canadian model).
    It took me the whole weekend but the result is unreal.  I also 
managed to squish the 88 5kt intercooler into the front grille 
without loosing my high beams.  Although I might get rid of them 
later on in favour of the Rally TQC style grille.

After sorting out all the vacuum leaks and setting both the mixture 
and timing the car is running perfect.  The power is intoxicating.
There is only couple of problems.
My gas milege is down the toilet.  That could be explained by the 
boost gauge which is usually kept up by me.
The other problem arose last night.  While in process of top speed 
test I got to about 190 km/h (118 m/h) and the tach hit almost 4500 
rpm the clutch started slipping.  All I saw was the rpm shooting to 
the redline with the speedo at a stand still.
I used a 4kq clutch wich I know is too small (240 clutch is on order) 
But don't clutches usually slip at lower speeds and high torque 
Any thoughts?
