I can't wait buddy, really excited
I can't wait buddy, really excited
Good to see you've gone for the ITBs. I would love them if I had the money.
As you may know my selfish girlfriend slammed my passenger door and as a consequence broke my regulator. Renault were going to charge me around £300 to diagnose, supply and fit the new part. However, Citren a breakers yard for Renaults, diagnosed, supplied and fitted the part for £30. A tenth of the price but obviously the part is second hand but its still genuine. Problem solved.
I am currently still searching for a genuine cup air con delete kit. I can get one for £150 posted complete with bolts and brackets etc but im holding out to see if I can get one cheaper. My car is really dusty at the moment so tomorrow I am going to give her a really good clean
If that £150 includes the alternator that isnt a too bad price tbh.
My window broke several times, possibly the most irritating thing ever.
Why not go for the pure motorsport cheaper air con delete kit for 145?
That could be an option, however Matt said the genuine cup set up is a better option as its easier to fit and it sits a bit lower down so it doesent foul anything. A guy has offered me his cup set up for £85, however he doesent know and I don't know what parts he would need to send me. Does anyone know ? Pictures and parts name would really help ?
As you may know the car is booked in with Matt at TDF on the 25th April to have the ITB package installed. After reviewing the options, I decided to go with the longer trumpets. This meant that I would need to remove my air con and also fit a smaller radiator so they dont foul anything. It also allows me to run the ITG sausage filter with a backing plate which again is the better option.
Therefore I have been on the search for an air con delete kit. Matt advised me the best option was to get the air con delete set up out of a cup as they sit lower down in the engine bay. The puremotorsport kits are supposed to be very good as well but they sit a little higher and need a little bit of modifying. I was lucky to get a cup air con delete kit for £100 with the power steering line delivered BARGAIN.
As I have mentioned many times before, my exhaust is hitting my rear axle as the car is lowered 60mm at the rear. I had a new genuine renault exhaust mount fitted and it hasnt really made a difference, therefore today I purchased a prima racing rear exhaust mount as they are alot more rigid and have less tolerance. Hopefully this will illiminate the knocking everytime I go over the slightest bump in the road.
I also purchased a bottle of Poorboys natural interior cleaner today as I feel the autoglym product im using isnt that great. It had a lot of reviews and Im hoping its as good as what every once said.
Finally I purchased an ordinary sized front number plate as I think the skinny one looks gay.
My friend has just purchased a Megane RS something or other and Im hoping mine will be quicker, its 250bhp standard I believe. Real nice looking car
Also forgot to mention, I'm now getting round to changing those hideous p600 tyres, I managed to pick up 2x new Toyo t1r's 195/45/15 for £75. I'm pretty sure these will fit my 15" oz f1ns, just need to pick up another two from somewhere.
I read through your thread, nice car uve got there its coming along nicely.
Ive got a ph1 172 running ktec bodies, gen90 and catcams (421) and its great mate. You will love the sound of them, its a epic sound, you wont regret getting them fitted.
Correy if your old tyres are p600, do they have at least 3mm of tread? I know they aren't good tyres but I need one to make a full set.
Also the update sounds good you got a very cheap cup alternator setup there!
The 25th can't come soon enough, the tyres are still like new Lewis, I can sort you one out when the new ones go on but I'm not to sure when that will be as of yet buddy.
Nice one, I need on for the 29th of April so keep in touch
Yes okay buddy
I had lots of parts turn up today and luckily I was off work to take receipt for them. First of all my two new Toyo T1R 195/45/15 tyres turned up followed by the air con delete kit I got off a guy breaking his 172 Cup on 48k. With the kit I got the two brackets (one big and one small) the cup alternator, a belt and all the fixings. He was kind enough to give me the power steering line all for £100 delivered. The parts needed a good clean so I sent the brackets to a local powder coater for shot blasting. I cleaned the alternator as best as I could removing all the dirt but I would like to get it shot blasted but I would risk damaging it. The belt has got to be replaced and K-tec are sending me one out tomorrow for around £20 as advised by Matt TDF. I then dropped lewis Taylor a PM asking him how he went about prepping and spraying engine components. He very kindly replied and told me how to go about it. After cleaning the power steering line and removing the dirt I gave it a spray with VHT black paint to tidy it up.
The standard sized plates from fancy plates arrived today but it had some kind of code printed on the bottom right hand corner which I didnt ask for. I wanted standard UK plates with just my registration on, im going to drop them an e-mail later on to enquire further.
Finally the Prima racing rear exhaust mount arrived today. Hopefully it will be rigid enough to stop my exhaust hitting my rear axle.
I am now ready for my trip to TDF for the ITB's on the 25th

ITBs are going to be awesome.
The 'code' on your numberplate will be the BS reference which is required by law if your number plates are to be legal.
Ah I see, cheers buddy
please, post some vids when the itbs are on!
Yes course I will, I will also ask Matt to take some pictures as he does the install.
Still a nice graph
