We have used the HKS LA clutch kit on this application as it has a nice pedal feel and has sufficient torque handling capacity.Although we do alos offer many other types which you can see here

The standard transmission is being refitted.

 

The engine now back in the engine bay but we have to ensure that the turbocharger and exhaust manifold is aligned properly priot to receiving the Zircotec plasma sprayed thermal barrier coating.

 

As you can see, the exhaust manifold is very close to the ABS unit so attention must be paid to this!

 

Here you can see the exhaust manifold with Zircotec plasma sprayed thermal barrier coating. It is absolutely vital in this case to reduce under bonnet temperatures and prevent brake fluid over heating.

 

We’ve fabricated a custom turbocharger intake pipe, and mathced it to an HKS air filter.

 

Here’s the engine finally fitted and ready for road testing.
