ok so my question is, what is the advantage of getting coilovers over getting regular lowering springs?

also, what does a map clamp do?

incase you guys can't guess this is my first car i have ever really done any performance on besides putting an exhaust on so please help me out :p

coil overs give you a better ride and handling and are adjustable for ride height and dampening. lowering springs just lower the car and can sometimes cause premature strut failure.
A map clamp changes the voltage that the ecu reads from the map sensor at high boost levels which causes the ecu to read a lower boost pressure that what there is an soit(the ecu) does not pull as much timing.
Do not get a map clamp with out an wideband gauge as means of tuning the clamp if you try to do it without a wideband you can and most likely will damage your motor.
