sevenfourate's OEM+ RB200........



Well: as i've joined, loving and intending on frequenting this very busy little Clio hub; i thought i'd start a topic for my ride. Car has been owned by me for a little over 2 years and i've taken the miles from 31k to 41k. But currently its a true garage queen and i'm happy with that. I enjoy the odd Sunday spin. And i love owning it. Every time i open the garage, everytime i go for a blat it makes me smile. It not quick in real terms. Its nippy, handles great and stirs the motions. That's what cars should be about hey !

Theres alot of (Little ?) stuff you likely won't see / notice on this car as i've tried to [On the most part] keep it OEM+ and not have it too loud. Literally listening to it - or visually. Probably because to many of you i'm an old git :) I've just kinda tried to make things look like any mods done - might just have been how Renault would have done so......

There is a 137 page build thread so far; here over on 197/200.net. Much of it me mulling over and chewing that fat on how to do any mod's to the best of my ability; as i'm completely anal:

Lovely looking car in my favourite colour!

What the reason to change the manifold? Do the 200’s suffer from broken flexi’s like 197’s?

Cheers for looking.

Good to see you over here Shuv.....
I’ve gone away from my Clio since moving on from the supercharged AG, so I’ll maybe bore you with the new build soon.
Cars looking great as always?

Cheers bud.

Yes they do - the very same unfortunately.

My flexi's started blowing not too long after i got it. So after realising i'd need a remap ideally with a new manifold, and realising i might also need a tweak again in future if i renewed the cat-back system: i got a new manifold (And the not cheap experience of getting it fitted), full system, uprated engine and gearbox mounts to stop it happening again and remap in one hit. "Welcome to owning a Renault" that was ?

A little taster for u as I don’t want to hijack ur thread..... Unfortunately not Renault anymore mate.... although this one has been nut and bolt built, doing all the little details I wished I had done on the other two, so in my eyes it’s just as special....

I’ll hopefully do a build thread soon, even though it isn’t a Renault I’m sure it will fit in on here.

I look forward to seeing ur ongoing build.

I suspect the single picture (As fab as it looks !) belittle's your usual attention to detail and quality build standards. Along with one two unique mods i'm betting on...

For god sake get a thread going somewhere. I bet there's many here who would love to see it. I would ?



Clio build / mods may be slow bearing in mind it's now pretty much as i always wanted it; and me and the boy are in the middle of a little Citroen C2 Santa Pod / Sprint / Hillclimb build.
