calling on the combined knowledge of renault racers here.
i have a 16ts powered 12 which needs a rebuild. i am putting 16tx pistons in it, and i know i have to machine the block to accept these. now the only other mods i want to do is to the head.
as far as i know the 16ts head has 40mm IN and 36mm EX valves, though i may be wrong as this is off the top of my head. which valves can i fit to this head to give it better flow? i was told to use fuego inlet velves for the exhaust and not to worry about the inlets as it is still a road car.
then there is the cam. i've been told that wades do a gordini cam that is a remake of the 125hp spec. does anyone know if there is one that will give me a bit more than this, but probably not the full 160hp kit?
on top of this i have been told to put in a high power distributor. is the standard 16ts dizzy and ignition system not up to the task of twin webbers at high revs?
also, whilst not in the engine bay, has anyone fiiddled around with the suspension on the 12's? mine is a little saggy but i feell with retempered springs it will be a nice ride height, or am i better off tryiing to source aftermarket springs for it? and what about shocks? is there any performance based shocks out there that won't cost my right arm?
sorry for the long thread, but i like to kill many birds (questions) with one stone (thread).
cheers big ears
