New paint! R11 Turbo from Finland
« on: 18:45, Mon 18 August 2008 »
Hello all...  :D

It is good to see that here are people who has turbo charged Renaults :) ...

I have been chatting with Arturus about his Zender. Mine is "standard" R11 Turbo, but I am modifying engine little bit more.

Now I have T25 Turbo with 2,5" downpipe. Exhaust manifold is totally worked, actually one Sport 2000 race driver designed and build it. It is nice  :P  8) .

I bought Greddy Profec B Spec II to control boost etc.

I have National Performance Clutch, which should be able to handle 250hp.

I bought parts to build whole exhaust system again.

I took my carburettor to local tune shop and they machined carburettor to maximum size.

Yesterday I bought new cylinder head where are maximum size valves... :D ....at this week I will take that to tune shop. They will little bit work with cylinder head and we will measures maximum flow from the head.

I have also replaced all the bearings, water pump, and seals from the engine. That should help little bit.

Boost pressure that I am going to use will be about 1.2 bar. I will post some pictures from the project when it goes further.

When I bought this car it was in poor condition :( ...I have to rebuild whole car and replace most of the parts. I am lucky that this car is not in daily use...I use Renault Megane II Break to that thing...but during this autumn and next winter I will repaint, weld etc. whole car.

At next spring I will start to use this car and take it to track. :D

Here is some pictures in "original condition" about month ago...

Time to update.

Today I took benches and some other things out off car and I will take those to our local upholsterer. I haven't decided the colors yet. I think leather and maybe alcantara are materials that will be used...who knows...

Cylinderhead is at machinist. Realistic power expectation should be over 200hp.

I bought new Security-/alarmsystem also (Hornet T564) and necessary equipments that I can use Remote Start. That alarm is nice, there are several nice properties that can be used in my car.

I ordered a steeringwheel, a gearknob and HUD. I also found a new turbo heat shield, which is made from Carbonfibre :D ....

More is coming soon :) ...

Actually there are two different Renault clubs (includes forum too). You need to sign before you can write anything (because of spam):

www.rtf.fi (more from tuning, drag racing etc. orientated)

and

http://renaultkeskustelu.net/foorumi/index.php (more old cars for example Dauphine, Goelette, R8, R15 and so on)

Yes I have Paypal...
