    Wow! Looks nice! :cool: Can you wind the boost up on that engine? Love the Yellow fogs, a nod to the old skool there!
    So what you planning on buying to replace it?? A RenaultSport Clio perhaps??

    Yes you can up the boost, currently the boost on mine is at 1Bar instead of the 0.6bar that it runs at stock. All be that it hasn't been remapped yet. It should be running round 125 Bhp, And going from what it can keep up with on the road, I'm not going to disagree. Ive found, Much to my own amusement, that it can really pee off golf GTD's, And pee them off even more when you tell them its only a 1.2

    Unfortunately i won't be replacing it with a RS model. Cheeper insurance and more income mean i am currently looking at some very lazy V8's/Ugly/No handling at all type cars

    You can get well over 150Bhp if you fit a megane 225 turbo onto these, the internals come fully forged from factory so it can be a fairly potent engine :). There is a twingo GT in Italy running over 240BHp with the same engine ... :p

    Links to the Car? The engine code is D4FT if it that helps.

    The D4F is the standard 1.2 D-series engine (1149cc), The D4FT is basically a beefed up turbo'd version also know as the 1.2 TCe

    From what i've been told by a fair few people who have stripped down there D4FT's they are forged pistons and con rods (All be it OEM Forged so not as high quality as aftermarket i would imagine). They also have sodium filled valve stems, Up firing oil squirters and a few other things to help with cooling. They are very nifty engines :)

    130-145bhp can be done with just a remap on a stock engine from the looks of it. but if you start adding FMIC, Bigger host pipes and remove the restrictor of the turbo and come up with some sort of induction kit, You can get over 130 with out needing a remap. Add all these together and change the turbo to a megane one, 150bhp comes and goes, But so does the clutch's after that point.

    be so cool to drop one of these in an old skool shell. are they supported for aftermarket parts, clutches and such?

    Theres a few out aftermarket parts out there but not many in the UK ... Well ... K-tec sell a could of things but i wouldn't really call them "Upgrades", Its pretty much a make it fit yourself job.

    You can get a better clutch, but i believe it has to be made. i think its by Helix?

    Twingo GT's have this engine in and they are really into modding them and turn them into right pocket rockets. But for some reason clio owners don't seam to :/

    It uses the same engine mounts as the normal D4F engine, which has been in pretty much every smallish Renault for god knows how long.

    You an pick up a TCE for about 500 on ebay with daily low miles on it ...

    There is a slight lay out different for the boost pipes between the clio lay out and the twingo layout (Side mount intercooler on the clio is on drivers side and on the twingo its on the passenger side) but i can't see it being a problem if your doing a transplant :)

    Update ...

    The Megane R26 stainless system is in place and the rear lip refitted ... and it is now ready for sale!!!

    Spend two days giving her a good polish and wax, all I've got left to do is remove the audio and then sell it/part chop.

    The meg exhaust looks bang on, think it suits the styling of the car more having 2 central exhausts than one off centre.

    +She now sounds like a beast! :p

    (Youtube vid)


    Thought i'd get some snaps of her too while she was spotless
