Frayz's Inferno 182 - Back in the old flame

Not much happened on the little Clio lately as I’m still on the hunt for a proper gearbox with diff (think I’ve found one) and hunting for some Recaro Pole Position / Cobra Nogaros.

I did however acquire an ITG Maxogen induction kit for it. The filter element had seen better days so decided to treat it to a new one. Also my car previously had a slightly oversized battery so annoyingly I’ve had to get a smaller 063 size battery to get the carbon airbox in.

Haven’t really driven it yet so can’t comment on the outcome of performance / racket etc. But it looks pretty 🙂🤷🏽‍♂️

Massive thanks to Mike Rainbird at RB Motorsport for helping me secure a great deal on todays Recaro delivery. I’ve known Mike for a lot of years now and his service and attention to detail is absolutely superb.

Unfortunately I’ve now got the agonising wait till i get time and a break in the weather to get these fitted.

Been quiet on the update front with the Clio as im currently up to my neck in kitchen renovation and the car hasn't had a look in. I've just got an ever growing list of parts that i need to fit.
She has seen some attention in the last 2 days however.
Firstly a big thanks to Alex @AW Motorworks for fixing a small gearbox leak & fitting a pair of new CV boots to the NS driveshaft. Naturally it got yet another fresh lot of genuine ELF gearbox oil again too.
Also had a shock to hear it failed it MOT this morning due to high C02. I was pretty shocked by this as it had been running fine and still averaging 36mpg so was surprised to think that a lambda might have gone down.
Quick call to the motor factors for them to express me over an new NTK lambda which arrived at 4:15pm, popped home to fit it before getting back to the MOT station before 5pm for them to re test the emissions.

Thankfully all is right in the world once more and the little 182 C0 is back to normal :)

Where was the gearbox leak? Think mines pissing out of the selector seal

Inboard NS drive shaft. It was the original CV boot that Alex removed when he did the clutch last month.
I don't think it liked being removed and re-seated as it was the original item that had done 117kmiles, no fault of his.
Alex has now fitted a brand new one to both ends. :)
