Haha I know, French cars tend to start falling to bits shortly after they were made.

Hard to say really, never been in a Clio or raced one for that matter :shrug:

Only thing I have to show is this really -

The EK9 may have been modified though... Clio is much heavier, but has more torque... Would be close.

Thought you'd bite harder than that :lol:

Doesn't matter who wins when I'd probly have something else break while we're trying it... Hence why I'm selling it :(

Hahah I'm open to others views & points. I know the Type-R's aren't the fastest thing on the road, that's not why I bought it. They're not built for straight line speed anyway.

Haha possibly! Wouldn't want to break another drive shaft! What you buying? BMW?

As said, I tidied up the engine bay a little at the weekend, still lots to do though!

Changed to a stainless bracket on the radiator hose with a red bolt, painted the air con radiator bracket in Hammerite & painted the wiper arms too, plus generally giving everywhere a clean down. But that's just the start on the engine bay :)

Before



After



Wipers Before




Wipers after, not the best finish but was Hammerite with a brush...

how much bhp this pushing out?
looks good :) type-rs are always fun!
185bhp! Not bad from an N/A 1.6! I'll have to get it dyno'd though, could be more due to the exhaust, could be less. Depends how well it's been serviced. Don't think it's lost many horses though, goes like ****! Lol

Best car Honda have made.

Possibly but I'd say the Integra DC2 & NSX also!

Tbf though after all the stick we've given him, that's one nice motor!
