    Hello guys. I am new here. I'm David, 19 years old mechanic from Croatia! :smile:

    I am not an expert in Renault models, so I would like to ask the pro's about some things, mostly engine related.

    1. I want to force induct my mk1. Its an mk1 phase 3 Clio, 1.4 ren energy engine. I would like to know which exhaust headers would fit my engine and a turbo? I mean, from which model, or if I should fabricate some myself.

    2. Which turbo? In the shop I work into, we have a turbo, but I don't know from which car. I know it's a Volkswagen group, and that it's a KKK, but don't know anything else. It's pretty small tho..

    3. I am looking for forged pistons for the 1.4 energy engine, but I wasn't lucky with an online search. Do you guys know of a site where I can order them?

    4. I am also looking for a greater profile camshaft, but i wasn't lucky finding that either, where could I order one?

    5. What else should I do for a little more power? I am not looking for extreme power, about 140hp is the best I could wish.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you asked this on williamsclio.co.uk? They may be more familiar with mk1s, I know a lot of the guys there have done huge amounts of work on mk1s - not sure about the 1.4 though. The 1.8 16v lump is 137bhp as standard :wink:

    As above, there maybe someone on here who can help but you are more likely to find that help on a site that is not dedicated to a single version of a Clio very different to yours. As to your queries, that does seem like a lot of work for very modest power and I suspect your search for off the shelf upgrades will be fruitless as the demand to upgrade those power units was probably small. Same engine as R19 I think so might be worth checking that out.
    Excellent english by the way.

    Seems like im out of luck again :/ I was looking for a Williams engine, but those things are damn hard to find, and if I indeed find one, it will cost more than the whole car. Thanks for the compliment, first time i hear that from someone! :smile: You really think my english is good?

    Williams engines do come up for sale occasionally, I saw one go on ebay a month ago for £370, others with a good service history and belts changed would be a couple hundred more +. Your main problem I suppose would be shipping. Good luck.
