Hi all,

So I've had the trophy for a month now. I really want to see what mods are available and who's done what to theirs....
Im considering the following performance mods
De-cat, Air filter (not induction kit) and a re-map
I have contacted K-tec racing to see what they have to offer what can anyone suggest??

Also I'm half debating the cup spoiler and possibly a front splitter anyone know where i can source a front splitter ??

Any advice would be appreciated
Jon

The cup spoiler would be good but at about £1000 fitted etc it's expensive 😧 Perhaps do a Renaultsport trackday :smile: before doing anything. Have you changed your car setup ?

If you have a track monitor, select car sport mode then on the screen, settings, car setup, change steering from n to s, throttle from normal to extreme. You will be surprised and forget about a remap :)

The one thing i don't have is the R.S Monitor, really starting to wish i had it installed :weary:.... i have heard that a few had it installed as an option even after factory but at a bit more of a cost than the option from new.... Not too sure how true this is but maybe worth an ask to renault :grin: i did have the official handbook in the car about the r.s monitor which is strange and a separate one for the radio system etc so not too sure if thats normal either.

I would still consider a Renaultsport trackday with some tuition before you enhance your Trophy with a modification from ktec :)

I looked into have the RS Monitor retrofitted at Renault and its not possible
You'd of thought that as the screen/stereo set up is the same (as long as you have lux pack) then it would be possible. After all I imagine most if not all of the sensors are already there and running, the rs monitor just displays the data normally only sent to the ecu. (But I'm thick so...)

I think a track day will be a good opportunity to see what the car is capable of before modifications i agree :up:

But having the Trophy you may have the wiring already if your lucky. But are you enjoying the car as is get it on track were are you based
I may visit my dealer where i purchased from see if i can get the low down on this, I've seen on the megane forum someone has had it installed on their megane 265 after a few months on ownership. I think there is a possibility of having it done but maybe dealers don't want the hassle of doing so

I presume you took it to your local renault dealer? What did they say when you enquired?
I did yes, they spoke to the technicians and others and said that if it's not ticked on the options from new then it doesn't have the loom and software. The costs involved to then retrofit becomes too much.

But they said it is possible to retrofit if you paid for the work to be done? Did they mention any rough costs??

RS Monitor can now be done by a company called Stage X, apparently its all software based unlike what I was led to believe by what Renault had told me

I thought about a remap but a bit worried about the temperatures, mine gets HOT in the summer I can only imagine what it would be like with more boost and an intercooler blocking the radiator!

The Pro Alloy radiator sorts the cooling out if you go FMIC. To be honest with my FMIC the temps did go up but not to obscene levels, you could do a few laps then back off for a lap. The temps dropped fairly quick, it's more the guys living in the far east and Australia that see crazy hot weather for months on end when mapped.
