Thought I'd share some pictures of my latest bit of kit with you guys, some of the oldies may appreciate it.
Recently became the proud owner of this 1985 Audi Quattro UR Turbo 10V.
Previously owned by my father for the last 24 years, with one former keeper beforehand.
It's been dry stored...
Ive just finished plumbing in my low boost turbo conversion on my Clio and am very happy that it fired up first time. One problem ive found so far is that the rad fan runs all the time even when ignition switched off. It turns off whilst the engine cranks over but comes on...
Hello guys. I was thinking of doing this for a long time now. To start, i know its not worth it for you guys, and i know people will tell me this in every post. Now, i have a 1.4 single point lump in my bay, and want to add a turbo obviously. I already have everything i need. A brand new garret...
My turbo to manifold is blowing, I've managed to tighten the top 2 nuts as tight as I can but 1 of the bottom nuts is that loose it's spinning by hand, what's the easiest way to get at it to tighten it up? Carnt get a spanner or anything near atm
Hello. Can anyone tell me or have a quick look at the lead numbering on the coil pack for the turbo conversion.
The original has them numbered on the coil but the new one does not but does have ABCD so wondering it this is 1234. If anyone can help this would be great.
Is their a problem with having the water feed to a turbo on a 182 from the thermostat housing through the turbo then back into the header tank.
Only im seeing people using feeds from the heater matrix.
I'm about to do mine and wondered if theirs a reason for this that's all...

Belts and then 230 bhp kit

I'm really not sure what way of water feed I should do for my clio turbo build.

Hello guys, I've recently entered the Clio scene buying a 182 titanium with both cup packs. Since i was young i've always been into cars so naturally after i picked this one up I've mulled over the possible performance packages available to buy, and as i'm a new member i'm not sure which options...
I've been looking at throttle bodies lately and just wanted some opinions on what's a good set up in terms of value for money/performance.
I'm hoping to some track days and maybe sprints/hill climbs etc so want it to be reliable as well.
Hi folks, thought I'd start a build thread as I've just took the jump from a few choice modifications, to a full scale turbo build. Apolgies for the quality of pics you're about to witness.
Anyway after toying with the idea of yet another Civic I was swayed when I seen a saw an immaculate Ph1...

Can I put these injectors in my stock Clio RS 169? Just plug and play or I need o buy something else? For example Turbo fuel pump, or turbo fuel...

ive a 1.5 dci 65 and I get a bit of boost at 2k then it drops out then violently kicks in again at 3k. Been told to change the fuel filter. What else can I do to check. It also started blue smoking at santapod last week so I've a feeling a new turbo is in order, if so should I upgrade or...
@Typhoon told me I should be doing a project thread for my 1.2 Dynamique, I had thought there would be no interest for it but he thinks otherwise, so here goes!
The car is a 2004 1.2 Dynamique with 56,000 miles when I bought it.
Back when I was 17 the car was bought for my brother who was 17...

There is no rust anywhere, floor under or in car, no seal rust, no rear arch rust, no front end rust, wings etc, nothing. Never...
Just placed a deposit on this, phase 1 with zero rust, one of if not the cleanest i have ever seen. Zero welding as well.

Interior needs some work but exterior has just had a glass out respray so hard work done.
s**t pics but will update...
