Yeah was a joy to drive with that turbo to be honest never drove anything quite like it. It’s nothing like a n/a Clio 172/182 at all. Even the sound from it it’s not screaming at 7k. Very smooth power delivery but at the same time you can tell that it’s shifting.
Can’t wait to get this new turbo on then get it down to Chris for mapping.
Long term plans will be forged engine oil cooler full suspension set up. And try to make it lighter than it is lol. 300 is the aim tbh but with 252 it’s one hell of a car and it not much can touch it.
Infact since I have owned the car nothing has came close.
Was planning on a smaller turbo but because of Xmas and having three kids my budget was very tight so wen i seen this turbo for £135 I jumped on it to get what I think is a fair deal. But hopefully next year more plans and some track days

The only trouble is you'll probably need to ditch the efi module and buy a full standalone ecu that can control boost to achieve the 300 bhp mark? or would you go about it by changing the actuator spring? on a garrett unit its probably alot easier that way tbh, on the chinese turbo's half of them you cant even open up the actuator to change the spring , and i cant seem to find an aftermarket actuator that would definately fit , im having the same dilemmas on upping the boost on my current setup, trying to weigh up if its worth forking out for the aem fic 8 with boost control or just go for a slightly larger turbo like the one you used there to achieve around 250ish bhp, you definately haven't sacrificed any lag on that setup from the smaller turbo
