    Hi folk

    thought I post my progress of my build in here

    Last year I put a f4r block with megane internals, manifolds and turbo in my Clio 172 it ran 246bhp 264ftlb at 0.8 bar


    ill upload photos when i can

    Unfortunetly the car spun a shell in one off the conrods due to lack of oil pressure, so made the choose to get the block forged and it's currently with Andrew Geer at clioturbo based in Durham being done

    hoping to get it back at the end of the month

    any questions just ask!!

    No way! What caused the lack of oil pressure, any ideas?

    Lack of oil, changed the starter after it failed and notice and oil leak thought I'd fixed it but clearly not few days later knock knock knock :-(

    it handled well power delivery was great always there when needed it, didnt like the wet tho would just spin the wheels
    will have an issue this year with putting the power down with it going into the 300's but got my clutch and pressure plate sorted just need a diff for the gearbox

    Careful when you diff it, I have a mate with a gripper diff in his 172 and it's fallen apart about four times so far!

    Looks fantastic fella.

    Any plans to go any further ?

    Once it's built I'll tidy it up and source a gearbox but no major plans more power ATM lol

    I think the diff will help you out no end !
     
  16. W33 BRL

    W33 BRL Well-Known Member

    Yeah I'm going to need it lol

    time will tell tho

    Its a no brainer that one I reckon fella. The diff in the R26 transforms the car.
