I have been running this clutch for some time now on my CRV with torque engine outputs estimated between 378 - 410 ft lbs depending on which map I'm running.
I do believe the 6 paddle metalic/ceramic clutch plate on mine was hand built, fitted along with a 325 pressure plate, release bearing and new DMF.
Like Lee I now have a smooth clutch action as it bedded in, it's still not quite up to the original, but it is being asked to take a much higher loading through AWD!
Recommend CG Motorsport to everyone who is wanting to go the stage 2 or custom re-map route.
