Renault clio 197 F1 team from Slovenia

Hi, my name is Primož and I come from Slovenia:smile:
I own 197 F1 team with a little over 100k km... I bought the car completely stock. On the first engine the rod came to visit me, I think the problem was to much RPM (cams) and conrod OEM bolts because the bolts stretched a lot on the blown cilinder...I will put some pictures If someone have similar problem. I bought spare engine from Clio 200.In two years I manage to upgrade it to this spec:
-Clio R3 access intake cam
-Bilsteine B14
-braided brake lines
-removing middle silencer
-Toyosport exhaust manifold
-Powerflex handling pack
-Short shifter
-OMP steering wheel
-Camber plates front and rear
-8J speedline wheels
-Battery relocated to the back
-Zero point one shifter
-Nankang NS2-R semi slick tyres
Next update:
Custom made intake with BMC CDA large filter, new oil pump, ACL big end bearings, ARP conrod bolts, mapping, new exhaust (recommendations?), brake disc and pads, half cage.

Yesterday I manage to install second hand Toyosport decat exhaust, the sound is great, maybe a little to loud because I dont have catalytic converter on... :smile: I just need to find 200cel cat because of MOT and I think its gonna sound nice :smiley:
