Good work! Had the cc stage 2 before myself, great clutch in my opinion.

Yeah it seems great so far, only 35miles on it though.
Feels a lot lighter than I was expecting.

Sorry should have said its on the first page, all my updates go on the first page to make it easier to read. One thing I hate is trawling through 500comments to get to the next part of the build lol

Will update with more pics in time, came along way today!

Mapping being booked up for the 27th may.
Had a slight issue yesterday, out new injectors on(rc440) put new ecu in and the car idles like ****, wideband says AFR was 10.0(lowest it goes) on idle and engine check light came up. Had a chat with romain he's thinking either ecu is dodgey or a dodgey chip or something.
Put old injectors and ecu in and it idles spot on, so leads me to believe he is right.
Other than that everything is going abit too well tbh.

Yeah b16a is 10.3-1 I believe, b16b 10.8-1
Not sure what stock compression test results should be tbh.
