Anything can be done with enough money, your idea would need lots of it. IMO better off spending it on something else. Supercharge + coilovers for example
Scoff runs a VAG gearbox on his 500+bhp 172 engined Renault5, so that could be worth a look. Also worth speaking to Fred as he was doing this at one point.
Can you imagine a 300hp clio, would keep it looking pretty standard as well, sleeper :sleepy: !!!
but can you imagine the awesome 6th gear motorway cruising.
anyone got a 2.0t engine package lying around??
IMO folk have totally over estimated just how difficult sticking one of these engines into a Clio would be. IIRC the box only grazes the chassis leg?
Theres folk on the Ford forums hacking FWD cars to death and sticking all sorts of clobber under the hood or in the boot lol
Id guess the main issue with the Meggy / Clio conversion would be weight, plus being worth it with big power conversion being available off the shelf.
