GTTBoy.. ..thanks for help

RickGTT.. ..why? gordini head si much better - better ports, bigger valves etc. I plan to go EFI (megasquirt) and exhaust and intake manifold aren't so hard to made (i have some friends who can make me flanges and know how to TIG weld 8) ).

v. smart...u goin for any body stylin? or just keepin it as is?

No body styling. This car is used as daily driver and for autoslaloms, so styling isn't the priority. I will be lowerd for one or two cm more as it is and some day it may get colored bumpers (in same color as body).

Next step will be engine turning :-) Since I'm driving in <1600ccm class I'll stay with 1.4 energy lump. A known Slovenian rally mechanic and driver will lighten and balance bottom end (cranck, flywheel, pistons, rods), port&polish the head and lower the head for higher CR. Other components will remain standard (for now), except ported&polished exhaust manifold and bigger carb or maybe injection from 1.4i engine (98+ Clio 1.4 75HP), with remap.

1.4 energy engines with lightned&balanced bottom end and headwork + ECU remap (SPI models) had between 100 and 110HP (reved up to 8300RPM) on standard cam and intake/exhaust, so it should be a very fun car to drive (110HP and 700kg when striped) :twisted:

Latest update...

...I've finally found couple of hours for changing my old box (JB1 035 - weird ratios, with FD 3.4 :roll:), with this new one from Renault Express (gear ratios better suitet to my engine, with FD 4,2.. ..thats enough for top speed aprox. 200km/h (125mph) at 7000RPM). I need short box, since I'm driving autoslaloms with this car + it's my daily driver :lol:

14" OZ F1 CUP wheels:

Sand blasting and powder coating si curently too expresive for my budget, so I've decided to clean, sand and prepair these wheels myself - this one is finished and is waiting for painting.. ..other 3 wheels are still waiting to be finished:

New 195/45-14 Toyo T1S tyres :twisted:

Slowly I'm making the progress..
