Assume you may have sorted this now seeing as post was september but Ill answer anyway :-)

Std clio 172 clutch is fine if your sticking with N/A conversion if your going turbo then I recomend a paddle setup fitted,in order for the box to mate up fine you will need to remove both the front and rear gearbox locating lugs to the block otherwise you will be in trouble.


If you need anymore help doing this let me know as I done this conversion a few years back so know a bit about it :-)

You can run the std 172 engine on turbo fine but with the higher comp you will be limited to say 7psi of max boost this will still be quick if you want more boost the compression really needs to come down,

Ref what the conversion is like I done the n/a conversion and pulled it out after 100miles and went back to a tuned C1J as I missed the turbo LOL  I ended up doing a year or so later an F7p foully forged turbo conversion and that was rapid.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe if you fit a RS Clio 197 Head to the 172/182 Block you will get a lower compression ratio. I'm sure I read that in a Retro Cars or Performance French Cars mag? It's a better head for flow too.
