I also fitted up my 182 manifold and stealth exhaust system not sure on the brand I bought it thinking it was a ktec but it's completely different to the ones they advertise on the ktec website so if anyone recognises the style let me know

This afternoon I got stuck into the engine strip down to find out what damage was done when the belt went, discovered that the aux belt is also missing so this could have been a factor in the failure.
yep that's proper snapped
sheered exhaust pulley must have gone with a bang
bought this shed off eBay for 300 to tinker around with it's got fairly tatty bodywork and interior and a snapped cambelt so it's well dead at the moment.
plans are get the head off and inspect the damage and rebuild(if not BER)
then I will do a trackday and see what I break
had a few years away from the clio game until this popped up locally needs a fair bit of work but it's a project car
to start with got to investigate the snapped cambelt situation and see if I can reuse the head or not

Starting to notice a few niggles, starting with a slight blow from the exhaust sounds like the cat to centre section join I do have a decat to bolt on but have read mixed reviews on them so I might just see where it's leaking and address it. Needs a new bottom ball joint ( luckily I have one...
