Take a look at these pics, I just unloaded everything from the boot of the 172...
we are looking at a GENUINE renault turbo conversion for the 2ltr F4R engine (as used in 172)
I have decided NOT to go the Supercharge route.. simply because if you can get kit like this !!!... do it the EASY way...
Will have to look at low comp pistons later.. but thats when everything works on low boost....
You dont get bargains like this every day... straight from renault special projects... this is from one of the development f4r turbo engines.
And Yes,, if you want one.. I bought 3 lol.... - no, its not a complete bolt on kit.. it WILL bolt on. but you will need some interconnect pipes, an intercooler, and a programmable engine management or add on.
what I have... (these are brand new or dyno mileage only !) - as you can see.
Inlet manifold and plenum with boost aware MAP sensor AND injectors.
Turbo complete with wastegate and bypass assembly
Downpipe inc cat and dual oxy sensors..
(hmmmmm, note the homologation special ecu next to it.. hee hee.. probalby cannot be used on this though )
Cam cover end plate to suit new inlet manifold
Ancilliary mounting bracket to clear new inlet manifold not shown...
So .. if anyone wants one.. must be worth bloody thousands.. !!.. let me know - under a grand -
let the power flow...
