I think its Compbrake that make these, its a replica of an AP caliper. Freakyparts sell them as a budget BBK option. Surely will be enough for my daily even if/when I reach the 250 mark finaly

That's great, they should make a huge improvement.


What discs are you going to use with them?

Still going to take a fair bit of time until I will be able to comment on those. Not driving the car much these days as it desperately needs a new map and even when that gets done it still takes a fair bit of driving to bed in properly. Hovewer will defo leave a review here once I feel like I can make a valid assessment

Big brakes now on and ended up replacing all 4 discs as the old ones had a lot of corrosion on. Also dropped in a new battery just for peace of mind as the old one was 5 years old. Now its just a waiting game for the new map.

New belt and both wishbones. Will hand paint these black with some weather resistant colour before these will be installed. After all it is in Scotland

A few more bits and bobs sorted today. Replaced my blown middle silencer with a brand new custom made unit of the same size. No more annoying rattles Also replaced my old front spacers as the thread on a couple bolts looked really tired. Replaced position lights and reverse lights bulbs for LEDs.

Time for a wee update Engine modifications are all finished now. New chain and tensioner installed. Valve clearences done to the lowest tolerance to make most power. This is the setup:

HKS RSK
FD2 RRC
FD2 TB
FD2 CAMS
FD2 OIL PUMP
Japspeed exhaust manifold
Japspeed catback with a Magnaflow 200cel cat

Decided to move away from Hondata as I can not find anybody decent to map it here in Scotland. Car is booked in with TDI North next month for Ecutek with the 4 switchable maps and with traction controll enabled. For 150 extra I am really curious what is all the fuss about Looking forward to this trip to England. Warrington brings me back some good memories. Will probably be 1 tank to get there and 2 to get back once mapped haha. Will update this with a graph once finished.

Im a really hoping to see as close to 250 as possible. Not really fussed about the numbers tho as the feeling is what I am going for. At the end its my daily and just want to make it more exciting to drive

Ideally this is the road I would like to go in the future - fd2 bolt-ons, minus the exhaust(I know OEM is restrictive) because of new MOT rules.

What a great set of mods, that should fell real good when tuned in. I bet it sounds nice too.
Fingers crossed with the cat and MOT, I'm in a similar boat with the Scorpion sports cat.

Nice work!
