K10 1.2 PFI

Hi Guys,
I would like to show you my, a bit modified, Micra. The majority of work took about 1.5 years of free afternoons. It started out as a rust-bucket with automatic transmission. Now it looks like this:

- 4-1 exhaust manifold from Kawasaki Z750 (around 5kg)
- 2" stainless exhaust with silencer from Corolla 1.3 and db-killer

- ecu DTA S60 - tuned as alpha-n
- wasted spark ignition
- MAF
- oil pressure and temp sensors
- wideband lambda (LSU 4.9)
- fuel pump from 2.5 V6 Mondeo MKII
- ready for knock sensor (DTA doesn't support it)
-battery in the trunk

-3" seat belts - 4 point Raemco for driver (combined with Mirco GT bucket seat) and 6 point QMS for passenger (in pair with some old OMP seat)

I don't know how much power it has, but it's much faster and more nible than stock. ITBs give instant throttle response. With modified mounting points, shifter feels great and super fast shifts are possible. Weight distribution also is much better since weight difference between old and new gearbox and manifolds is roughly the same as roll-cage, which is around 50kg.

I've done some more changes:
- 240mm front brakes with 2.0d primera calipers
- 13x7j wheels with federals 595
- Turbo with VTG from 2.2D Saab
- Better fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator
- 2.0d primera radiator
- Electric exhaust throttle

I'm very surprised that MA12 copes with almost 140kpa of boost running stock internals. Judging by the pressure levels themselves engine should make sth. around 130-140hp.
Car runs great overall - it doesn't understeers and it has quite smooth power delivery.
Unfortunately the clutch starts slipping at 4th gear and I'm already running 170mm pressure plate and friction plate.

Does anybody know whether the same mods that are used on k11 can be used with k10 flywheel (for example 1.4 almera pressure plate with 180mm friction plate)?
