20v Turbo conversion.
« on: 22:56, Tue 06 July 2010 »
Anyone any experience of doing this ? I am aware there is at least one car out there with this.

Would love to hear from someone who has done / plans to do this imminently ..

Duncan Greir on RTOC owned the Car
Scoff on RTOC did a lot of the custom engineering

You basically need a modified subframe & engine mounts & then all of the relevent 20V Turbo bits.

I've a MK1 Williams with the 20V conversion in. I didn't do the work, a guy called Flan on WilliamsClio did it.

My car runs 246 BHP & is proper quick!  :lol:

Here's a load of pictures of my Clio.

Audi, Seat, skoda  it's the 1.8 20v turbo engine they use, Im belive some engines are slightly better spec than others within and some come with different turbo's

As Steve says above Scoff done the R5 conversion now ownerd by Minty on RTOC.  And Steve has a super sexy 16v clio with the conversion aswell

Done a few of these in my time - very simple to do, cheap and effective.


I Built this back in 2003 - you may know it as the Clio TT ? its been through a few hands since i sold it.

I think some guy of RTOC owns it now and the last i heard he was butchering it to drop in a 5 ?  :cry:

I though i recognised your name, your also a cliosport member aswell.

Yeah the car is now owned by Paul aka Minty83 on RTOC but I believe it is still in one piece and I think from his sales add on RTOC that the car has this week been sold on again and the owner is an unknown.
