Clio 182 turbo

So another winter and some more upgrades...

This time I’m upgrading the standard chinese T25/28 hybrid turbo supplied in the ED kits.. it’s not failed and is still in great shape, no play.

I’m going for some newer tech, theres like 20years of turbo research done since the old turbo and today’s stuff. I’ve gone for a GTX2860R ball bearing turbo with a billet 11 blade compressor and reduced the A/R down from .86 to .64 to reduce lag but still retain high end power due to the better turbo design. (That’s the theory anyway)

I’ve also purchased a Mishimoto intercooler which to be honest doesn’t look big in the pics compared to the ED cooler but, ITS BIG! Obviously not big to the full sized FMIC see about but a huge improvement (again hopefully)

I managed to kill my main shaft bearings at nür and spa this year, it started sounding a bit rough after the TF sessions but had to press on as a full day at spa was the next day and it survived a full day of hard lapping at around 3min laps... and got me home

Thanks to Mark Northloop mayfield for sorting the rebuild, it had quite a few new parts my workload at the time was through the roof and with audits I sent it to him as I trust his workmanship 100% and he got me better prices than I can get from my own stores!!

The engine isn’t far off going back in, fabricating a new under turbo brace currently and then turbo time again!

Oh yes, like the new turbo a lot, will be really good to see the results, especially as it’s a GTX. @Martin. ’s build has a GT2560R and the difference between the ED turbo and that is huge. Massive spool improvements and a much bigger area under the graph. Yours is perfectly set up for the 2860 although going to be close to the bulkhead!

Yes I’m a little worried about this! The compressor housing is slightly larger, not massively but I may need to address it when I test fit! I nearly went for a 2560 myself but wanted to try some newer aerodynamics!

Looks awesome dude. Nice work. Are you aiming for the same power just more usable power under the line on the graph?
Cheers mate,

Mainly more of a spread, but it will do more.. it’s just the fueling that will hold it back.

Coming together now, cooler sitting nicely, few pipes coming to get it all nice. Should start it up this week and check base actuator boost levels before running it into my boost solenoid.. actually hoping it won’t be safe on the AFR when in full boost. I’d like another dyno tweak and see what this turbo can do.

Good to see it fits. Bet that was a relief.

Lots of preventative measures to stop the turbo coming loose and the downpipe cracking. Like the idea of a flexi there. Not much left to do now :)

Yeah, to be honest I don’t know why I didn’t put a flexible joint in to start with, may have been worried about chopping the downpipe, it was made by the guys that make the PMS system!

All I have left at the end of today is some of the worlds most expensive gear oil coming tomorrow, some vac/boost hose to my boost solenoid and a reducer pipe to the intercooler... should have it spooling up tomorrow
