Picked up the car today from Bens.

Over the moon with it. Even though I'm restricted to 5500 revs the pull and response is miles better, it feels like a different car. Oh and the sound with the port and manifold... Epic!

Can't wait to get the run in done so I can hear it at 9k!

I'll try get one filmed when it's 'hunting' on idle over the weekend.

Forgot to also mention the difference the lightened flywheel adds, I would recommend it to anybody having a new clutch or engine work done.

I also had fitted an 'unknown' clutch kit from the US and while I can't obviously comment on longevity, it feels good and has a nice bite to it. Cost around £120-£130 with shipping and import duty etc.

I got my dad to send me mine (for free) but also available from flea bay

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BAHNHOF-Stage ... 27bae7fdac

I will keep the thread posted on longevity.

Managed to get plenty of miles in over Christmas and with the Yorkshire run enough to get the 1000 mile run in service done this week. also had the gearbox and diff oils changed. Thankfully the missing water was due to a water leak not the Bridgeport so all is well, checked it after a long drive and all good.

All combined it's made a hell of a difference. Still not beeping yet but working up to it. Feels like the drivetrain oil changes have freed things up a bit and also got some extra miles from the tank, MPG average increased from 21 to 24 on dash command, same driving style, same conditions and pretty much same journey to Nottingham and back. Previous to rebuild I was averaging 17 with naff coils and failing stationary bearings. I am also running shell V-power with 125ml premix, not sure if that is contributing to the difference.

Will try to rack up 3000 miles before half term to get it booked in for a remap, this will hopefully shed some light on the gains and I can post a dyno up. Will probably ditch the sports cat and run a decat beforehand.

Once again thanks to Ben and the team for the work, car is a real pleasure. Looking forward to hitting 70545 miles :D

Some small mods coming up over the coming weeks, green LED's to fit, new tunnel trim to paint, have bought Nordic Green but not sure now, may go piano black. Need a new boot seal, demist the rear lights and give the bodywork some attention. Also on the lookout for cheap aero kit and very cheap/free dash centre to try and fabricate an experimental IPad mini + 2 gauge pod enclosure.

Finally got around to fitting the green LED's but the one for the ceiling light was too big, will have to re-order? The mirror lights weren't as hard as I'd worked myself up for them to be, managed to get to them without removing mirrors, turned and popped them out with a screwdriver then managed to support them while I pushed new bulb in. Glovebox was a nightmare though, I broke the cover :(

I like the effect, adds a nice eerie glow, hard to capture. The anal side of me wants to change the light around the ignition from red to green. Anyway, here's a pic
