Title: New paint! R11 Turbo from Finland
Post by: Theros 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 :) ...

Post by: Theros on 19:32, Thu 18 September 2008
I rebuild whole engine...there are still standard pistons, standard cranckshaft...bearings are better than normal.

I changed all seals etc...valve adjustments were quite interesting...lol...there are maximum size valves.

BTW: If you guys want change cylinder head, then you should look also Twingo's cylinderhead. There are already larger valves and it is "bolt-on" to c1J engine.... ;) ....

Hehe... I fitted R19 16V radiator fan (I don't know if it is right word)...it is bolt-on too.

It don't keep as much noise as original (similar to R5 GTT radiator fan)...

I have also front axle from R19 16V...that way there are bigger discs (better brakes) and axle is stronger also...it was "almost" bolt-on...

I ordered paint at last week. Colour will be Daytona Nero from Starpaint (company that is located in Germany). Colour is metallic black which flips to green in sunlight.

hmm....after long time...maybe I should update this a little bit.

Engine is now totally rebuilded.

We painted car once, but painter was not that good and he "ruined" car. We sanded all paint away and then resprayed whole car. I lost motivation also and it was gone for three months.

Now car is painted. There are still some striping that need to be done and at next week I should be able to finnish car painting. Then I can start to look for parts that are missing and put pieces together.

I will post pictures soon, when I have uploaded those to server.
