    Clio 172 Cup

    Thought I'd do a bit of a project thread for the clio as things are starting to change slowly.

    Quick story on how I ended up with her - I drive 90 Miles round trip a day to work and owning a Corsa VXR was making me poor. So ordered another D, but a 1.7cdti SE model to do the work run. With the derv going to be quite boring I wanted something nippy for the weekend. So out with the 1994 Mini and in with a Clio 172 cup!

    already had a carbon splitter and a K-Tec sport hidden exhaust.

    so far:
    New JBL speakers all round,
    Damn good clean, paint restorer and polish.
    Yellow front and rear diamonds
    Yellow side bullets.
    satin black calipers
    New discs and pads all round
    12 months MOT


    Cheeky one of the vxr


    Plans:
    Wheel refurb in yellow with blue diamonds
    JMS airbox kit
    K-Tec engine mounts
    New headunit (prob go for low end alpine)
    rear tints
    coilovers

    eventually aiming for:
    182 manifold with decat
    K-tec Supersport hidden exhaust.
    JMS matched inlets
    JMS remap with over-run

    Nothing special, just delphi sport ones.
    If I had just had to do the fronts I probably would have gone brembo but cudnt afford them with doing the rear ones and bearings to and needed them quick for the mot. But tbh I aint that fussed really.

    They are worn in now and my god that thing can stop. Seems to pull on your face! Although not liking how far the front end dips when you really slam them on.

    I love the yellow bits.

    Wheels would look good in Anthracite, but everyone does them that colour.

    I want it to be different and a little on the lairy side. Was tempted with florescent yellow but have decided on a less in your face yellow

    Less than a month now till the VXR will be going

    On the clio front though - the next progress bits seem to be taking their time
    Have a set of tempoary wheels while the others are getting refurbed but the guy who's refurbing them is away at the minute
    Getting some prototype mounts/bushes test fitted next week (cant keep them yet as they not finished)
    The induction system i want is still out of stock

    Would have been a rubbish weekend if it werent for last night, out for a blast, met up with Charlie too and watched him disappear into the distance with my low ratio gearbox lol.

    the JMS road one, seems to be the best setup without relocating the battery. Has a proven BHP gain and the graphs for it look ok, will be getting it mapped soon anyway.

    Gonna save up and get the inlets match, remaped and coillys done at the same time all down at JMS. I had got hold of a 182 manifold, but its ball ache to fit and most people are saying you lose top end and gain lower down in the rev range. So it got sold on and gonna get a de-cat and straight through for the system I have now and go from there.

    Induction - http://www.cliosport.net/forum/showthread.php?t=476869

    Everyone seems happy with them except for a slight drop below 3k but you aint gonna be worried about shifting if you aint above 3k.

    Wheels and induction are top of the hit list then going to re-do all the mounts - but waiting to see what Kamskill are testing first see if I can get a freebie :p

    will polybush the dog bone as allegedly this one is the main culprit, then will just get oe parts for the rest. I wont use it enough to warrant forking out for the K-k-tec ones and unless your tracking it reguarly then it is said its not really worth it. Not sure what Kamsport are test fitting somekind of new mounts/bushes but they said they would do me a deal once the released.

    The JMS one shows good gains 8-9 bhp for the road version and 10-11 for the race. Its basically a v6 box with a 90 degree hose to connect it a pipercross filter and a breather. They sell it as a kit they say they developed for £148 for the road and £188 for the race version.

    eventually got a induction kit now, ended up getting a "pre-loved" one that had done less than 1000 miles for £120 so impressed with the little saving. Its sounds awsome, fit is pretty tight, needs a little tweak but ill do that when I get round to it.

    Still waiting on getting the spare wheels to go and get my ones refurbed. Took the car to a dent place today to get a price for all the little carparking dents to be taken out as there is quite a few on each side and they wanted £200!! Since then I have become quite attached to my carpark damage and will be keeping the £200 in my pocket (or spending it on some coillys next month :D)
