Great looking build.

You may want to add a stiffening rib up the side of the clutch and accelerator pedal. I bent my clutch pedal over easily as designed but a little 3mm rib on one side has made it nice and stiff.

Same power as a diesel engine, same noise, but it's for the begining, don't worry, the futur engine will be more than 200 bhp(i hope 250!), for just a 1.6 l.
