    More turbo questions!

    I know everyone will say do a search etc but i have honestly been searching the past 30/45mins trying to find answers to my questions and ive had no luck!

    The questions i have are..

    MANIFOLD QUESTIONS.

    Does a megane 225 turbo manifold fit directly onto a 1*2 head? or is there tapping and drilling needing done? (nevermind this question now,i now know that its a direct fit)

    Is there enough room at the back of the 1*2 engines for a 225 manifold and turbo?


    TURBO QUESTIONS.

    Am i right in saying that the 225 uses a td04 turbo and that these turbos are water cooled? if so...does anyone know what model of td04 as i know there is variations of this turbo.
    Again..is there enough room to accommodate this turbo at the back of the engine?


    DOWNPIPE QUESTIONS

    Will the downpipe from a 225 fit in the space at the back of a 1*2 engine? if so...is it far off from been on the same path of the current exhaust?

    Have done more searching on a Meganesport forum and found that they use a TD04 14t turbo. so one less question.

    The downpipe fouls the master cylinder on a clio. The reality is you'll need to drop your compression ratio as well, for the work involved you may as well use a garrett set up as the potential upgrades for the future will be a lot higher

    Re: More turbo questions!

    There is space for the exhaust manifold and turbo but there isn't for the down pipe so some modification is needed for the brake master cylinder.

    I've never fitted the megane inlet to the 1*2 head but from what I heard it doesn't fit straight on. You will need to lower the compression ration anyway so you'd be as well fitting the 225 head to your block. You'll also need to get an oil return for the turbo.

    Re: More turbo questions!

    if you were going to all the trouble of fitting a turbo would you not want to fit a bigger one than a standard megane turbo to start with, seems pointless

    Re: More turbo questions!

    I know all the work needed to fit a turbo and I know what the bhp limits of the td04 are..I am just curious as to how much of the standard megane f4rt parts you can use with serious custom work. But thanks for your replys about the downpipe

    Re: More turbo questions!

    I have the head, inlet and exhaust manifolds, turbo, pistons, crank and rods from a 225 and the block and box from a Clio.

    Still to get the electrics done so not running yet but it all goes together.

    are you sure the 225 crank will work ?. if your running a clio box you will be running a clio clutch and fly which i dont think with bolt up to the 225 crank

    Just run f4r crank, no benefit from using f4rt crank.

    Iirc he bought all the running gear from andyrg complete so maybe thought it had a 225 crank.

    Correct and Andy used the f4rt crank and I have used the clio flywheel with the jc5 gearbox and it bolted up fine.

    Re: More turbo questions!

    So anyone thinking about doing this it's not really worth changing the crank ?

    Andy's reason for using it was it felt heavier so he thought stronger, that's all.

    Re: More turbo questions!

    I'm not clued up on these engines but I no from the Vauxhall forums when people convert to turbo they use the na crank as it's stronger and a na inlet cam.

    Re: More turbo questions!

    Why would a na crank be stronger when it is subjected to less torque?

    Doesn't make sense to me.
