Great thread. I'll do one later now mine's changed quite a bit!
B16 I think. He has the damping adjustable variants I think?
Was just about going to put a thread up to see if it was possible to have 'minor' pops and bangs mapped in with Paul, is it something that's different to these 'crackle maps' that people have done.. Would love more infoBilly B16 7/10
These are awesome on the road but just not hard enough for me in the mountains just a bit too soft on the front I find the car dives too much on the downhill elements. I think of them as more of a way to lower you car with a minimal upgrade in handling. The rear however is much stiffer.
Ktec induction 10/10
I have no reason to fault this I dynod at 186 whp on a hub dyno that was pretty accurate on the day so it's not loosing me anything and the sound reminds me of my e46 m3 pure ear boner.
Akra evo 9/10
Amazing build quality and top sound would be 10 but I find it a bit quiet low down so purely personal preference.
RST live remap 1000/10
I can't bum Paul enough for what he has done with the map. My car always felt more pokey than my previous 200 but it was lumpy and a bit turd off cam. The map transformed it I wasn't expecting much but you can feel the extra pull and it's silky smooth through the rev range. I had some minor pops and bangs added for fun too which can be controlled with the throttle so it won't do it much unless I want it too.
Powerflex gearbox and engine mounts 6/10
I did all my mounts at once my car was only on 14,000 Kms so the existing mounts weren't bad to to start with. I have noticed a little improvement but the car still vibrates massively when crawling through traffic at 16,000 Kms. Not comfortable and embarassing as the whole car shudders I can see my headlights vibrating. If I did it again I'd just do the lower dogbone and maybe the gearbox side as shifts especially 1st to 2nd are improved.
Totally my fault I had B16 on my focus rs for 3 years so typed it out of habbit. They are B14 standard. I wish I had known your set was comming or opted for clubsports.
Interesting what you say, I agree about the roll but it's only on the front end, although I complain about it I do wonder if it's intentional the pitch allows the car to transfer the weight and load up the outside front wheel for grip? It's the only reason I haven't changed them yet since i use the car in the mountains if I go too hard the car will become numb and exceeding the grip of an ad08r in the mountains usually results in death by rolling down a cliff.Bilstein b14 10/10
personal opinion for a daily car that occasionally touches track these are unrivaled. soft enough for road but good enough for track (the car can roll a bit on them). ive had cars with gaz in the past and unless its an out and out track car then these are unrivaled for the price imo. given the opportunity id give bc coilovers a go though

I changed my front brakes to HC discs, DS 2500 pads and some braided lines (plus 5.1 fluid), completely transformed the feel of the braking once all bedded in. I think the car is over braked anyway with brembo calipers but the feel is much better with this setup.Small update and thoughts:
Royal Steering Wheel Refurb Alcantara & Gaiter 10/10 - Fairly cheap upgrade to do, but worth every penny, Jacks work is very good.
Alarm Bracket 10/10 - A cheap upgrade supplied by sevenfourate on the forum had mine painted to match other bits, good to know it wont rust!.
Brembo HC Discs 10/10 - Upgraded with rears and new pads, so difficult to isolate on it's own, but yes brakes are superb and these are seriously cheap to buy.
K Tec Black Edition Rear Discs 10/10 - Again upgraded as part of the whole set, they look good for sure.
Ferodo DS1.11 Pads 9/10 - Wow, these really do have some stopping power my only negatives are the dust, slightly noisy, but thats not an issue for me - very happy happy with them, overkill for me, but what stopping power.
Ferodo DS 2500 Pads 10/10 - Car stops well, so yeh very happy
Mr Pinks Pins 10/10 - These are very expensive, but yes certainly worth every penny guy who fitted my brakes said these are really good quality which will hopefully make brake maintenance easier in the future.
Brembo Rebuild Kit 10/10 - All I know is after by caliper's rebuild my car stops well so thumbs up for that should have had it done ages ago!.
TPI Black Locking Wheel Bolts 10/10 - Cheap upgrade and visually what a difference on the black speedlines, bye bye rusty nuts!.
Exon Silicone Hose Air Feed 8/10 - Not sure this has any impact on anything except visually, which it does very well matches other hoses in my engine bay so very happy & not to expensive.
Think that's it for now...I now need to win the lottery.
Love my new setup, agree its a great setup though.I changed my front brakes to HC discs, DS 2500 pads and some braided lines (plus 5.1 fluid), completely transformed the feel of the braking once all bedded in.
