    Nissan Platina/Renault Symbol or Clio Sedan

    Hello,
    New to the forum and live in Mexico, have a Nissan Platina, sold in other Countries by Renault as Symbol, Thalia, Clio Sedan, It has a K4M engine, 1.6, 16V, I'm in the process to modify my engine and need your expert advice, I want to keep my K4M engine and install a turbo set up, I have been working on suspension and brakes, got most of my parts from KTec Racing in UK.

    My car has actually the following mods:

    17" wheels and tires
    Momo Steering Wheel, shift knob, park brake handdle and Momo Leather Boots
    Sony & JBL audio
    Webasto Sun Roof (soft,electric)
    Brembo drilled front brakes with ferodo pads
    Rear Clio Sport Disc Brakes with ferodo pads
    Ktec Stainless Steel Brake hoses (in the works to install)
    Ktec Engine mounts
    Powerflex Poly Suspension Bushes
    KTR Bolt In Alloy Suspension Top Mounts
    KTR Aluminium Rear Strut Brace
    KTR Carbon Front Strut Brace
    Whiteline Rear Anti Roll Bar Kit
    Billstein B6 Struts and Shock Absorbers
    Eibach coils
    Eibach Camber Correcting Bolts
    KTR 1 Rear Camber Shims
    Full Custom Exhaust sistem, stainless steel with MagnaFlow tail pipe, no cathalitic converter
    Mapped ECU
    Full Flow CAI

    I found a shop in the US willing to port and polish my cylinder head, will send it soon

    Ktec is offering some options for CATCAMS as follows, need help to select one of the cam options:

    Hi mate, if you want to turbo I wouldn't bother with cams. there is someone from Brazil here with a turbo K4M, he may give further counseling.

    Hello Mau...good to see another Mexican here...not really sure if I want to go "the turbo route" or just ported and polished cylinder head +forget pistons+ forged rods+ cams + intake and Standalone ECU, at this point I really don't know...main issue is to find someone to do the job as I don't have time, also don't have a clue on turbos setup , I have talk to a couple of guys here in Mexico, they deal with V.W.'s and SEAT turbos and they are very good but they have never had any Renault engine to work on....I don't want to be their LabRat!
    Regards

    Hi mate welcome to the club, I wonder if a phase 2 sport front and rear bumpers and grill might fit that it'd look nice, not keen on your wheels tbh but each to his own, your car certainly is very different and you have some good mods so far and plenty to come by the looks of it, I'm sure CS will offer plenty of technical help, not me however as I'm not very technical!! Enjoy your time on the forum, cheers, Simon

    Thanks Simon.

    Certanly, I don't like my wheels...I'm right behind a set of Enkei RPF1 Wheels, Silver Finish....

    I will keep the exterior as It is, the front and rear bumpers from Renault would fit but don't want to make it look as a Clio, It is a Platina/Symbol.

    I will install a set of leather Recaros, not "racing seats", something like the "Specialist" or "expert" models.

    As for the engine, I'm still trying to decide isf I go turbo or N/A....It all depends on if I can get the right guy to set-up a turbo engine or not.

    Front brakes are on It's way, KTEC doesn't stock those, they are 3-4 weeks lead time + shipping to Mexico....in the mean time I will install my SS braided brake hoses, the front ones are easy...but the rear ones not...my stock lines are steel tube crimped to a hose and another piece of steel tubing, I am trying to sort that some how..have some ideas.

    Regards

    Re: Nissan Platina/Renault Symbol or Clio Sedan

    O.K., I have a couple of Thech Questions:

    If I am going to install the FlowTek Manifold like this:



    Is it a good idea to get a Bigger throttle body like this (and of course "bigger" injectors)?



    Someone told me the BIG Throttle Body if from an Old Laguna, Do someone knows the model?, where to get it?

    Thanks

    Will order next week my ENKEI RPF-1 Rims.... Thanks to Valentin_N for hook me up to the store!



    Don't know yet if going 17" and use same size of tires (205-17-40) or could be best to order 16" and buy tires 205-15-55, what Do you think??

    I ordered today the dbilass intake & air filter, also the ENKEI Wheels...It's going to take some 3 weeks before they arrive to me...will post some pics when I get them.

    Can someone help on the Throttle Body Issue?

    Thanks!

    LOL, Yes...This car(same as Renault Symbol or Renault Thalia) was sold in my country by Nissan, under the name of Platina, It has different headlights, I installed the Clio headlights because I like them much more.

    Today I was looking close to my intake installation and discovered a "pin hole", looks like it is to "breath" the case???.....It use to be inside the OEM airbox:



    I decided to remove the cover and fix it:



    Drill it and tap it:



    Added an small bolt:
