    Clio III TCe 100 injectors and remap

    I have a Clio 3 TCe 100, love the car, love the engine, just think it needs 15 - 20 extra hp to get it to 'hot hatch' level fun. I've read that an off-the-shelf remap will take it to 125hp, but I'm sceptical because I know the standard injectors are hitting nearly 100% duty cycle. Does anyone...

    Will 182 fuel pump fit a 1.2 16v?

    So my fuel pump has finally died and i've been looking around for a fairly cheap replacement. Renparts have a pump that's fairly inexpensive at the moment but it's from a 1*2. Is the pump any different on the sport models to the non-sport petrols? (Mine has the D4F)

    182 fuel non-return valve and FPR

    Please can someone provide a description of where the fuel non-return valve and fuel pressure regulator are situated on a 182 F4R? Are they both built into the fuel pump assembly under the rear seat? If anyone has a diagram of the fuelling system, even better!!

    Fuel pump won't run with 12v from car, but does from external power.

    Trying to get my 172 Ph1 started but the fuel pump won't run. When I turn the ignition on I can measure 12v for a second or so at the fuel pump plug. But the pump doesn't prime or do anything. If I bridge the fuel pump relay, like the bottom left hand side relay socket in this pic (not my pic)...
