Sleep well Ben !
280 in a Clio = big fun! Hope everything goes smoothly Ben.
Yeah, using my exisiting engine & box is part of the appeal. It's currently on 29k miles & I know it's been looked after. I know my synchros are good as they were checked when I had my Quaife diff fitted. Diff would also be good to keep. I know some say Clio ratios are too low, but as my Clio is my fun car & not my daily plus gets tracked I don't think that would be an issue. I like the idea of keeping the naturally aspirated feel of revving the engine that the supercharged option seems to provide from what I've read. I'm less keen of the 5mpg on track that I've read about though! I got 13 mpg at Cadwell Pk a couple of weeks ago. Academic really as I don't see myself being in a position to do a conversion for a while. Just as well I love her as she is, but as you know where power is concerned " Too much is never enough"!
"nothing silly" only about half as much power again compared to what you already had!!!
Guarantee you'll be bored of/used to the power within 6 months
Haha.... not forgetting nearly double the torque as well
Car will be totally different to drive with all that torque but I'll have to learn to live with it...!
Doubt it'll take that long
Which will give out first - Ben's thirst for more power, or the front tyres
Slippery slope I'm heading down I can tell haha. Need me one of those money trees
I have one, it's called a 0% credit card LOL
As for "learn to live with it"... sucks to be you mate, I'm sure that's going to be a real pain in the arse...
think i want more already..its so addictive knowing you can get more...
Makes me wonder if I'm getting enough already
its like with everything else..soon you find yourself in a 500 bhp car thinking,umm i could do with more..its natural for petrol heads..
Short day work wise so gave her a quick clean. Happy with the door bullets. Not massively noticeable but I know they're there
Really happy with the Sprint spoiler. Makes a world of difference imo. Wish I'd done it sooner.
Early start tomorrow morning as car is going to Beaniesport for Megane conversion. Getting a bit of cold feet if I'm honest! Car has never been so good in my spell of ownership yet I'm about to pay someone bundles to rip the heart out of it!
I'm sure once it's too late to change my mind I'll settle down lol
Can't wait to compare the driving experience between N/A & boost. Been a long time since I've driven anything with petrol turbo.
Cheers for checking in. Will hopefully have some pics to share as the conversion goes along.
Couple of photos
Always a big deal handing over that sort of money to someone when it's concerning your pride and joy! I'm sure Beaniesport will do you proud and you'll be grinning from ear to ear. I'm very much looking forward to Bedford, find out on Monday my start date so everything is crossed for this!
I think you've twisted my arm with the Sprint spoiler, suits the back end so well! Been toying with this or the Cup, but I think that's a bit too full on for me..

Be nice to add you to the growing list for Bedford mate. Work comes first of course!
Sprint Spoiler would look great on your car
Sprint is the one to go for - I had a good ogle at Ben's when it was at Blyton and it's a work of art!
Ben, you completely echo Pav's feelings when the Witch went in (and I'd be exactly the same), but just look at him now - like a dog with two winkles, unless that's him around women full stop!
I'd also be feeling very confident it has gone to someone who knows EXACTLY what they are doing, in fact, if I'd have had it done, it would definitely have been BeanieSport doing the conversion. Good luck for tomorrow matey
I am REALLY hoping to get there. Be nice to get her on track before going off the road for 6 months...makes me kinda sad. I'm thinking about a respray whilst I'm gone so might be good to get the Sprint at the same time!
