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!!
 
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 :-(
 
heres some photos from my build last year

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!
 
heres the spun bearing bearing that gave me all the issues
