Yepp!

Well I Never But I Bought The Whole Car For The Lump And Sticking It In My Clio !

Its Had All New Parts Tho! Starter Alatanator Williams Lump And New Gear Box Had To Get The New Loom From France As Renault Couldnt Get One!

Its Set At 9 Psi? Bout Right?

9psi is there normal setup conversion, running about 200bhp they say, if you had all the works you should be looking at running a lot more psi than that. the full works basically their spec engine you can run in excess of 20psi. their basic conversion including fitting is jusy over 5k i think, a 2nd hand one worth even less than that, parts along only cost around 4k for the conversion. wiring loom over 100 quid. small over parts not even going to be over 1k. Think there was one of their converted cars going on ebay for 3.5k which weren't too bad. Think that clio on the site for sale is a joke though, who would buy a clio for 15k when its only running just over 200bhp.

Got The Reciepts Here Totall Amount On The Engine And Box Is 10.367 Quid!

12.5k With Brakes Etc!

I Paid 5k For The Whole Car Newly Repainted Full Kit Brand New Wheels Etc Etc Going To Put My Lump Back In That And Hopefully Get Good Money Back For It Hopeing For Around 3.5-4k!

My Old Lumps Had 6.k Spent With Prima Done 800miles And Rr @ 194 Bhp Without The Nos.

All In All Ill Be Happy With Getting The Conversion For 2k Ish!

ITS BEEN RR @ 247 BHP! DONT FORGET THE COST OF THE WILLIAMS BLOCK BRAND NEW BOX AND ALL THE RIP OFF LABOUR CHRAGES FOR FITTING ALL THE EXTRS THE LOOM ALONE MUST HAVE TAKEN HOW MANY HRS? AND COST 350QUID PLUS SHIPPING!

I DONT MIND ANYWAY I NEVER PAYED IT FEELSORRY FOR THE BLOKE WHO DID HE ONLY HAD IT 9MONTHS DONE UNDER 4K IN IT AND LOST HIS JOB SO HAD TO SELL TO PAY THE LOAN BACK!

Why would you sell that clio when its the best modded one out there. wouldn't it be cheaper to just sell yours with your engine in there and just transfer what parts you want over to the new one? It has the low comp conversion then, which sounds about right for that sort of power. Im just after now a clutch, as the valeo one i have wont be too good for the power im going to run, Also after a clio 172 gearbox, main reason why i joined this forum. and need to get hold of a screen, so i can view loads of readings which my ECU is going to give as an output, cant wait to see that all up and working :D also found out that the ECU im having has two setups, so can run petrol saving setup at like 5psi, and also have another one which is like 18psi or whatever i decide to go for. This car is costing me a fortune lol, and i wont be selling it whatever the circumstances are.

Its is BBPT R-Tuner Prgrammable ECU version 2. Setting it up on the road first of all but will more than likely get it rolling roaded sometime to see what sort of power its running at. Got myself the 172 gearbox on the way now, so just need to sort out a couple of more things. First of all was just going for their basic turbo conversion but change of plans and ive come away with a monster of an engine. Its just getting all the parts together to sort things out which is the most difficult part, still got the original turbo 1.8 16v conversion in the car which im sure will be up for sale once its out of my car, never ran and its been fully rebuilt.

Loving the Suicide doors on the car. Im sure ill see that about at shows next year.

Mine will be out and about everywhere i can go. Track days and going up santa pod next year. But also some of the shows like the FCS and trax. Ill sort out pics once its all completed in my car.

Might be a daft question but does the 172 gearbox you have come from a phase 1 / CUp as you'll need one unless your speedo input comes from something else as the Mk1's use the gearbox sensor to detect speed the 172 excluding the phase 1 some early phae 2 (very few) and Cups didn't have gearbox sensors as they use the ABS system.
