    Individual throttle bodies.

    Search YouTube for Clio on throttle bodies for example.

    Or any n/a hot hatch on bodies.

    Tell me you don't love that noise !

    Whenever I speak to Engine Dynamics they tell me the 197/200 are rubbish and not to bother modifying it for a road car, you'll just make it worse. The only thing they recommended was megging and they said they can't do this for me :smile: :smile:

    Haha I guess so. Fair dues to them, they don't seem to just want to take my money if they feel it's not worth it, but it doesn't matter I shall just tune it elsewhere :smile:

    Unfortunately will be the very last n/a hot hatch - new tax rise surely will have given manufacturers the final incentive not to ever do another one!


    Itbs eh, do your research as it's not just a case of bolting them on, needs basically an entire engine rebuilt to see the benefits of them.

    Great news on the MOT Simon, and reassuring to know there'll be no issues with the Akra in the future either! The Meg brakes look super behind those wheels!

    It is a huge shame that the N/A engine is slowly dying off, especially in smaller cars like ours. Those emissions regs have got a lot to answer for :angry:

    Brakes are immense. Literally ! Considering you have 18" wheels - they are large.

    So: Have you driven it yet ? Or were the pics halfway through the process, part of a dry-fit or........?
