    Amazing mark, few quid gone into that bud.

    What power are you hoping for?

    So that's what a R2 engine (mostly) looks like!
    Best bits are invisible I reckon!
    Is that the Pure manifold or also renaultsportR2?

    Thanks scott! Yeah not as much as you'd think though tbh!

    I'll do a full spec list with the power output later mate. On a session atm with a bottle of j├Ąger. Lol!

    Cheers mate! As above, I'll do a spec list tomorrow.

    R3 mate! You may well be right about the best bits as well! Lol! The manifold is a pms item that I bought off @Porkie and @BIGASH

    Lol! Yes mate, pretty much all my own work other than the machining work on the block.

    This is quite frankly, utterly f**king brilliant.

    I can't wait to see it. You've done Team Mincer Racing proud.

    Full spec list to follow mate, but it should produce good numbers considering the lack of itb's. Or at least that's the idea! Lol

    Cheers sonny! Yeah the Airbox is one of my favourite bits.

    It's a bastardisation of 197 and 172 mate. Spec list to follow shortly.

    Yeah me too tom! It's only the throttle body that in theory can hold it back. Got a plan of attack for if it does!

    thanks mate!

    Lol I do indeed mate! It was much lighter on the way out the golf than it was on the way in too! Flol!

    Ok so here's a spec list of my engine.

    Genuine R3 maxi forged pistons.
    Genuine R3 maxi rods.
    Genuine R3 maxi cams.
    Fully ported and polished Clio 197 cylinder head, modified to suit a 172.
    Supertech valves.
    Fully ported and polished inlet manifold.
    Low mileage 172 block honed and modified/adjusted to my spec + checked for alignment/straightness.
    Modified oil pump.
    Fully balanced rotating assembly (crank, pulleys, flywheel, clutch, pistons and rods) and micro polished crank journals.
    Lightweight flywheel.
    Lightweight water pump and crank pulley.
    Individually gapped piston rings (4 per cylinder)
    Genuine R3 air filter
    Genuine R3/cup racer aluminium fuel rail and anodised an fittings.
    R3 maxi Evo spec carbon airbox (copy! Original was just too expensive when it physically won't fit in a 172 bay and has to be fettled :sob:)
    Fully built to R3 maxi manual specs - crank deflection, bearing clearances, ring gaps etc etc.
    PMS exhaust manifold.
    197 coil on plug setup.
    R3 maxi spark plugs.
    FBW throttle body (options to run larger manual throttle if found to be a restriction)

    That is one impressive spec.

    What was the idea for it all ? Just pick the best bits from the Renault range to fit in the Cup for max performance ?

    Thanks. It's quite a long list when you write it all down like that! Lol

    The idea for it all mainly came from wanting to run the 197 inlet as its a better looking design imo. More aesthetically pleasing! I set about converting a 1*2 head to accept the inlet, but the work involved was stupendous!! I dropped lucky on a 197 engine in bits so I cherry picked the items I knew I could work with and left the rest.
    All because I just wanted to crack 200hp without itbs. Lol!

    They're there to allow flexibility and for thermal expansion mate.
