    1995 F3R 2.0

    Hello Gents, I own a 1995 Renault F2000 (SWIFT chassis) and would like to get some more performance out of the engine. Thus I wanted to ask if anyone has made significant HP upgrades by oversizing the block, adding a turbo, replacing the heads with F4R (possible?)? Many thanks!

    Help needed! 182 Trophy 173 (Video)

    Hi everyone, I'm new to ClioSport, but have read several previous threads regarding 182's. I need some advice regarding my 182 Clio Trophy, No 173/500. The main issue is a very lumpy idle, so much so that the car is physically shaking at times, particularly when the engine is cold. I've had...

    Lambda O2 Sensors on 182

    The pre-cat Lambda sensor was recently replaced on my 182 and it's still posting a fault code. So a friend and I hooked a Solus up today and looked at the voltage being sent by each of the sensors using a live data run. We then unplugged each sensor to see effect. It would seem that the post...

    F4R proven tuning spec list please

    This is my first post and I apologise if it is a question asked 10000 times. I’m currently a 182 owner. However I am looking for help to spec a F4R build. I’m very likely to use K-tec itbs but apart from that I’m wondering about which camshafts would be best. And if arp bolts, head gasket etc...

    Dephaser Solenoid Sensor Seal Question?

    Hi Quick question, is there a good chance that the oil pooling in photo is coming from a bad Dephaser "Soleniod Sensor Seal" do these fail? Is it really as simple as one bolt, lift solenoid out, pull seal out then back together? Is this the part...

    Timing tools help please.

    Some assistance required. Bought timing tool set off the bay to do cam let change on Ph1 172. Engine no rusted away and not on log book. Camshaft locking Tool doesn't fit and apparently according to seller kit fits F4R 730 and 732 but not F4R 736. On this basis I assume I have a F4R 736...

    Exhaust upgrade for F4Rt-762?

    Hello, I've read many resources, searched the forums but I'm still confused about possible exhaust upgrades for F4Rt-762 (Laguna mk2). I wish to replace the stock with something that lets the engine breath easier (and add power), additional noise is not needed, but fine if it's not too absurdly...

    Oil return on F4Rt

    Hello, I am considering installing an oil catch can on my Laguna mk2 with F4Rt-764, since I don't like the oil going to the intake. I realize I can buy (or make) a catch can which I will - as the name suggests - catch the oil and will have to be periodically emptied. However, I have a dead...

    Camshaft idetification

    Hi, I've bought a Renault Clio 2.0 16V -01 half a year ago. I need to find out which camshafts that are included in the F4R motor. The previous owner stated that, according to history, a "Rally"-Cam should be included. When doing a Cam belt shift and fixing some other stuff a good friend of...
