    Default RS Clio 202 conversion

    And no, it isn't a Clio with an old Holden red six installed.....

    Picked up Evo magazine Oct 2005 the other day.

    It details the Morego Clio 202bhp conversion, comprising a kit of an air filter, cat back zorst, high lift cam and a chip.

    There is also a kit which comprises all on the above, minus the cam, which gives 194bhp.

    The article says it isn't a lot quicker than the stock 182, but it would seem the greater torque allows the car to maintain progress better than the 182.

    Claims:
    Power 202bhp @ 6550 rpm (Stock 182bhp @ 6500 rpm)
    Torque 168 lbft @ 5250 rpm (Stock 148lbft @ 5250 rpm)
    Top speed 145mph (Stock 140 mph)
    0-60mph 6.0 secs (Stock 6.5 secs)

    Price 1250 UK pounds (ex fitting)
    Or 899 UK pounds (without the cam, ex fitting)

    I'd guess the mods would invalidate the factory warranty :-)

    Holy crap! That sounds awesome. What a massive gain in torque. The thing already pulls like a train as it is. Did EVO mag dyno test to prove those gains though?

    Will have to seriously consider these clio's, especially in a few years time when prices drop after the clio 3 comes out.
    Take the long way home....

    That's the big if. The figures were included as claimed figures. Reading between the lines of the article you could see that they didn't seem to get a huge increase in performance apart from the cars ability to maintain its progress, no doubt because of some increase in torque. What else would be interesting on the dyno would be to see how the air fuel ratio progresses through the range, if it runs lean at the top end from the engine management changes. While the cost (and work involved) seems a lot, and the gains little, at least they don't seem overly extravagant claims for performance increases. Unlike some of the 10bhp power increases from just an aftermarket airbox :-)

    It sort of proves that it seems to cost a lot to get an extra 0.5 second boost from 0-60mph. The money would probably be better spent on driving tuition, at least that can be transferred from car to car :-)

    Probably another reference point is that posted by Martin(RS2) some time ago for Technomap in France, they claim to be able to get 220bhp from the RS Clio motor.
