Cup Update
« Reply #34 on: 13:18, Fri 23 May 2008 »
OK so I've finally got the cash together and had my beloved cup engine rebuilt..

Due for collection next week...  I will let you know the specs once it's back..

Next purchase will be a NEW RADIATOR.

I'm not enitely sure which one to go for though so I need some help..

I am also running a Forge Intercooler, Mocal oil cooler and a T24 hybrid turbo with Blitz Boost management.

Should I go for a R5 1.6D unit  or a K-Tec copper core with low temp rad swich and low temp thermostat?

or maybe an alloy custom but I am a little short of funds..  

However I do want to protect my lovely rebuilt engine from overheating again..

Any Suggestions would be greatly recieved....

Engine Build
« Reply #36 on: 10:40, Tue 03 June 2008 »
Thanks to the info on the Rads. I've checked mine out and looks like it's high volume unit anyway (without oil cooler) Will probably change to alloy one at some point but funds are short...

Anyway I've finally got the engine back and has been transplanted back into my Coupe..

Although not all parts back on yet. See pics below as to how far I've got.
As you can see still a little way off just need to find some time. I'm hoping to take it to Renault World Series this weekend at Silverstone I'll probably be bolting bits on there!!!!

It's has has had ported polished head and inlet manifold, lightened and ballanced crank and flywheel plus all new bearingins and rings etc...

Also got a Blitz Turbo management system to go on as well (Courtesy of my team mates Scooby)

Engine Mounts
« Reply #37 on: 10:57, Fri 06 June 2008 »
Update.

Just fitted a new set of KTR UPRATED Engine Mounts. Was a fairly easy job once the front bumper was removed..


Next job is to heat wrap the Exhaust Manifold and Down pipe..

Nice work  8)  I just got some new standard engine mounts, how much difference will the uprated ones make? thanks.

That's a very good question as they look identical to the units I took off  :? apart from one has alloy insert on front gearbox mount.... So apart from the rubber being newer and possibly stronger I can't say... Hopefully stop the engine jumping out the bonnet though!

Heat shield
« Reply #41 on: 17:07, Mon 09 June 2008 »
Does anyone have a heat shield for sale as I seem to be missing the one between starter motor and manifold?

If not have you any pictures of what it looks like so I can fabricate one?

Starter Motor Heat Shield
« Reply #42 on: 15:44, Tue 10 June 2008 »
I've opted for this product instead of a piece of tin...  :wink:

Instead of absorbing the heat it reflects it.




Was designed to prevent starter and solenoid failure due to damaging radiant heat. It is capable of protecting against 1000'C of radiant heat.

Should do the trick me thinks!!   :D
