I was told that if my clutch is going bad it would affect my kia's intake preformance (incedently my clutch is not slipping) and the fuel system would try to compensate by not allowing higher rpms to be reached,
Anyone if this is true?
Thanks in advance

Honestly, no. You shouldn't have to. Unfortunately, this is a common problem with the 2.0 Kia Spectra. I'm an owner of one, myself. Although I'm a 25 year old male and drove this car 30,000 miles, I babied this car. I had to replace the stock clutch plates at about 16,000 miles, and did so with a stage II clutch set from eClutchMaster.com. This performance clutch lasted about 13,000 more miles before also giving out. I believe there to be a defect in the slave cylinder set-up that causes the plate to fail to fully seat on the flywheel. (I'm a mechanic) Unfortunately, there hasn't been a recall as of yet, but keep an eye out.
I too have had this problem and if you tap the blower on your heater below your passenger side dash your blower will come on. I found that the problem with mine is a loose wire in the wiring harness going to the blower. It seems to be a easy fix, find which wire is ground and that will be your coulprete. yeah kia's dealerships **** ! trust me I know!
