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 Ј40 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

172 (f4r) engine is easy as is to install as doing the F7p / f7r and the B18ft.

All depends what you want n/a or turbo, the f4r requires a different bonnent but the f7p and f7r don't. For easyness and cheapness F7p or B18ft will prob be the options really as you can get parts so cheap.

Quite a few of us on here have done various conversion's so plenty of advice around and info in the DIy section on the various conversions

If you want simple, reliable track car with minimal work to do on the conversion then i would say fit the F7P engine from the mk1 Clio 16v.
These go well in the 5 and doesn't take alot to fit plus costs very little to do

Hi folks,

I have a Renault 5 GT Turbo engine I no longer need. It's what is left from a donor car.

Is anyone interested or knows anyone who may be?
