Other Renaults / which engine would best suit track days?
« on: 12:31, Sun 11 December 2011 »
hi guys, recently my engine went on my 5 campus, got offerd 40 scrap so though if i have nothing to loose why not make a track car out of it, there minimal rust with SOLID sills and a solid underside!

i dont want to put a c1j engine as i dont think it would hold out to well being thrashed around a track, im most likely looking for a n/a engine

i do believe the clio 172 engine can be put in with very minimal work, just one engine mount needs changing? i assume wireing will be tricky?

if anybody could shed some light on this conversion please help me,

any advice will be appriciated, thanks

Do it yourself / Rear window Welding

not sure where to put this post, but here seems best,

im looking for somebody in the north wales / north west area, whos willing to weld a 1.5 inch hole roughly in the rear window, looking at it the window will obviously have to be removed and a new piece of metal fabricated

and obviously im willing to pay

Thanks Dan

Other Renaults / 2 issues with my 1.4 campus
« on: 15:10, Mon 31 October 2011 »
ok after closer inspection on my engine I found 2 things concerning me,

first one was ther water pump, theres a hole being blocked by a screw and tubing and I have no idea why?

water pump dosen't look in best of conditions maybe time for a replacement

second thing I found was a 'vacuum' pipe with a screw stuck in the end, I'm assuming this is out of the throttlebody front but when I fix it to there the engine idles really high, it runs ok with screw in tho maybee slight bit sluggish
