I am tempted to turbo the f7r but the f7p is easier and cheaper to get hold of parts for if things go wrong. Mention f7r and things cost 100 more than f7p  :lol:

Things are looking like f7p turbo

Few bits added powdercoated cam cover (black)

(http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh25/GTTJames/Hybrid/SAM_2837.jpg)

Cleaned and painted up inlet manifold

(http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh25/GTTJames/Hybrid/SAM_2857.jpg)

Also added a volvo T5 intank fuel pump good enough for a 350bhp T5 volvo must be good enough for a 1.8 16v turbo engine :D

To be honest Ash there isn't much difference, the bulkhead holes are alot smaller than a 5, the good thing with the clio is the front slam panel is bolt in  and bolt out and makes things alot easier to work on at the front.

Space wise overall it's bascially the same as a 5

im modding the slam panel on my 5 so it can be unbolted, seen it on alot of rally cars etc just makes life that much easier  :lol:

 :lol: Sorry no pic's of i, I literally got the angle grinder and cut it then I cut some holed metal bar and drilled 2 holes in the now removable section and used 2 x 13mm bolt and nuts on it and and drilled 2 holes in the sections on the car I didn't cut and then just bolted the bar up looked fine barely noticed it was cut. Steve aka 5teveL done a similar thing

i was goig to use a scrap gtt i got and cut it so i can use it to overlap my slam panel so it will hopefully look quite tidy. i suppose you will hardly see it with the way the bonnet opens though

Well had a little play with the clio again last night and done the following:

Started the car for the first time since I have owned the car after engine re-assembly and it worked fine  :mrgreen: other than the exhaust rattles like hell on idle and has a blow
Replaced passenger side headlight due to stone chip,
Replaced drivers side front indicator due to crack,
Replaced steering wheel with working leather airbag version (safety first)  :lol:,
started removal of sun roof so can sort leakage out,

Need sunroof electric controls and possibly motor would like to get it working,
Considering Vinyl wrapping the roof myself with carbon fibre effect vinyl like my old GTT

James. Glad your finding your feet again ! Interesting read, as I've been offered a clio RSI , I just wondered what's the cost of the running kit involved to turbo charge that lump.

Then again I know my way around the. 5GTT engine fairly ok so consider this to be a big possibility, is there majour drama dropping in the gt lump, is it straight forward?

Clio 5 same thing really other than the 5 looks  8) , the more I do with the clio the more I realise it is so similar to the 5 other than engine being main difference.

Depends which route you go me I am trying to do it as cheap as possible this time around and therefore just need to get the standard pistons skimmed for low comp, and I intend to use standard ECU but get it mapped for turbo I am hoping to spend around 2k max

Hi Matey, unfortunatly i did both :(  I smashed it up in my first ever accident in 13 years :( and then I stripped what was salvagable (not much) and sold that all on.

I will post a couple of pic's up later of the accident but here are some good pic's for memories
