i'll get some photos of the brakes up for yas. my GF lost the camera cable though.

Clutch kit will set you back about $1515 + fitting i managed to source one for $1200 + $400 fitting. Castle Hill Exhaust now do one for about $1700 fitted that they've pieced together themselves they will probably supply it to you and you can have it fitted else where.

the problem with the sv6 is the hole clutch assy has to be replaced. you can go for just a clutch plate and pressure plate but the dual mass flywheel is the main issue with the stuck clutch system they fail if you abuse them to much and when they fail it's tilt tray home. not like a worn clutch you can baby around when the DMF fails you get zero power transfer from the engine to the gearbox.

Oil catch can has arrived will fit this weekend is a baffled can i want to put in between the breather that fits between the maf and throttle body. hopefully this will stop the maf getting oil back spray.

Nice ride man. Your first few pics don't seem to be working.

So you're pushing out 160.5rwkw...

That's f'ing impressive mate.
