Clio 1.8 16v???
« on: 21:37, Tue 31 March 2009 »
Hi guys,
my mates about to buy one saying its gonna wipe the floor with my 5turbo. I have doubts.
I wont be racing like a nutter on roads btw.

I would just like to know more about them,
Anyone owned one, what are they like?
Does he stand a chance  :D

Thats what I want to get if I convince myself to sell the sporty.
They are quick, but wipe the floor with a GT Turbo? I don't think so....

just under 8 thats what i thought.
although top end itll probably have a 5, but thats not important. 0-70's where its really at i think.

They are quite quick i've had a few my last one was 147 bhp and would pull round to 140 on the clocks on a test track.lol.Not as quick as a five low down.But in they do haddle abit better then a five i think.But look nowhere near as good as a five turbo

Kept up with a turbo'd one up to about 100MPH then it just left me for dead.

Should walk all over a standard one.

Williams is 150 bhp standard and a 1.8 16v is 137bhp standard. The williams engine is far more tuneable aswell.
