It's also currently not running right so made me miss a track day today, French shit.

    Just join in with the s14 guys, it’s essentially the same car after all. I find the s15oc on Facebook to be the best place for info of all the Facebook groups But it can be toxic too.

    The zetec-s is painfully slow, even with the Puma engine. Should be better once I’ve finished the conversion and it has 220ish bhp though. Never drive a Clio but they’re meant to be fun.

    Do you know what it weighs Chris? should be a bit of a weapon once finished

    I know what you mean with the wanting thing. If you didn't really want it at the start, it's hard to grow to love it after. I'm trying to buy a new bike at the moment and there's not a lot I'm having any kind of emotional connection to and, thus, finding it hard to find something that I'll fall in love with.

    On the elitist side - wow, you should try Porsche ownership

    For me it’s my S14a, looks, power, turbo, rarity, jdm, what’s not to like!

    I did enjoy my first car which was a ‘93 1.4 RT Clio, as others have said it’s fun to drive wot everywhere.

    Around 1000kg at a guess, they’re a bit lighter standard but I have bigger brakes, wheels and a rear cage. Should be fun and if it’s not quick enough then a turbo swap and a map will see 300+ Bhp. Don’t think it’ll be needed though.

    I once got a ridiculous quote from Mountune to convert my CA into a high revving NA

    They wanted at least 10K and that was just for the metal work. It required them to do the electronics as well

    Yeah that doesnít surprise me in the slightest ha ha itís ridiculously expensive to make high revving power from an na , I had a couple of type rís after that and some of the parts were crazy money ! Like a carbon intake was a grand for 10hp people spend thousands on them for like 30-40 Jp saying that high revving power on boost isnít cheap either as I found out with my ve
    Got me thinking now an Na ca on tb would sound nuts

    It's because you get to drive them hard and not give two hoots.
