Wrong... Extremeclutch Stage 4, 640NM   torque handling capability. I can do cluch bombs, and it should take it

It should be ok in cruising. Friend has similar Stage 3 in his 450HP FD. Thats why I choose this one

Make sure you push outside when first using that clutch...if its a fierce as mine...on off switch...you need to get used to it....not enough revs stall...loads of revs to pull away clean...and its very grabby so hillstart clutch control is a nightmare...on the road i leave a gap to the car in front..as tends to woohoo were off passenger.
That said hook up on boost is awesome and once outta 1st all gears lovelly.

Dunno for sure ofcourse. Now, when I tested it clutch paddle feels light and soft... Seems like it graps quite early... Lets see what happens

Massive fuel leak had one good thing. That stupid ford blue color faided abit and now it looks weared. I kinda like it now

Unnessesary crap... Dunno if I need them tho


Fuel leaks are sorted. I dropped lower rail about 10mm and higher about 5mm. Lower was easy, just made new holes to bracket. Higher, well after long thinking, I get my angle grinder and cutted little pieces off from stock intake
Pressurised whole system to 5bar, no leaks...

Intake is on. Quite happy how it looks...

Tested turbo hat too, to its place, not my head this time

I guess it looks ok. But...

Really really frustrades me cause Im really behind my time frame...

Trying not to drink while doing car. But, tell you the truth, this build really pisses me off allready. Dont want to rush, but doing something out of my comfort zone, that really stresses me..
