Default Nealy there! (Built engine goodness)

Sneak preview of what I'm about to drop into the car tomorrow -

99 head fully rebuilt / valve job
Coolant Reroute (Thanks Bert on mx5nutz)
Supertech 83.5 8.6:1 Pistons
SGI H-Beam Connecting Rods
ACL Race big end bearings
ACL Race main bearings
ARP Head & Main studs
OEM Headgasket
ID 1000's

I'm a bit annoyed because the outlet from the VICS solenoid and the inlet to the VICS actuator have both been snapped off. Really annoyed about that. It looks like the vacuum pipe that connects the two has just been ripped off, so that'll delay things. I'm also waiting on a delivery of 32mm heater hose to make up the re-route then I should be good to go.

Really apprehensive about firing the engine up. Am I right in thinking I can't let it idle for long and should be out driving it immediately to seat the rings? The car isn't MOT'd or Tax'd so that's worrying me slightly.

Pic of the engine as it stands now (ignore the old valve cover - I'm waiting on a powder coated one which should be ready to pick up mid week). I've gone for candy red.

The goal is somewhere north of 360whp and 950kg.

On a side note - has anyone found the limits of the F1 Racing stage 3 clutch? I'm really not sure how much power it'll take, and if it'll be strong enough for the power output.
