Update copied and pasted. In summary - going back to servo assisted brakes but with abs delete from a cup. Problem is my pedal box needed to be hydraulic clutch and they are 95% cable clutch on clio mk2's.
So the pedal box I was picking up from the v6 failed me, the guy who worked at the breakers told me that despite me asking 3 times if the part was available and it was... turns out it was broken. What a dick.
I called back Renparts and asked them for the one they said they had from a dci100, they ring me 10 mins later to tell me that it was broken too.
Started pulling my hair out a bit but luckily I had found something that looked like it would fit... it's from a kangoo but all the other kangoos seemed to be cable clutch apart from this MPV one I found. There was no other information on the internet to suggest it would fit but I found it for £20 delivered so was worth a punt either way. 2 days later it arrived..

Trial fitted it and it does Ignore the accelerator pedal, that will be being replaced with the ph1 172 one when I find out how it bolts to the assembly.

So with the new peugeot 406 v6 master cylinder fitted I wanted to see how close the de-cat is going to be to it. Absolutely no chance it would fit.

Left it that evening to go for some day drinking with the gf. Ended up at a nice burger place, had mac and cheese as a side which was epic.

Anyway, the next day, today I started with the custom brake lines to the master cylinder. Due to the ports being on the one side now, I had to create some new brake lines to suit. Using 2 m10 splitters to brake them up into 4 brake lines.
Also removed the engine to do this, did it in under 15 mins as nothing was connected really.
I originally tried it like this but quickly discovered it wasn't that neat and very hard to get to.

I went for a different approach, I mounted the splitter to the side of the car.

Then did something similar for the other lines

Nice and neat and out of the way, really quite happy with my progress today as i've been feeling a bit hungover but got it all sorted pretty much.
I'm now going to get some motorbike reservoir bottles for the clutch and two ports to the master cylinder and hide them away under the scuttle panel like before. Then fingers crossed i'll have my servo assisted brakes again which will make me happy.
To get around the downpipe issue i'm going to get my mate who's making the exhaust to avoid the master cylinder when shaping the downpipe. I guess i'm mainly waiting on that to be sorted before being able to drive it.
I need a few more things:
New oil pressure/temp gauge as my temp doesn't work £80
Clutch pipe £30
Nimbus heat shield £20?
O/S gearbox seal £20
Gearbox oil £25
3 x reservoir bottles £15 and pipework £not a lot.
Then i'm thinking of going down the route of a return rail for the fuel line:
3.5 regulator £55
ph1 Return sender £25
NPT fitting for fuel rail £7
