    Tell Adrian Flux you are a TorqueCars member and you'll get money off! Nice upgrade by the way, I bet you are loving it. Good to hear from you again.

    You wont regret it mate, epic car. I had a 172 and I wish I'd never sold it.

    A decent induction kit makes a bit of difference, altho it's a very free revving engine anyway.

    I had one of these - tight fit but doable:

    yeah cheers mate, yeah i took it on the m25 the first day i got it, i drop it from fith to fourth gear and it flew. sent a shiver down my spine. so the induction kit that you have in your picture, is that the one you would reccomend? i was thinking about a kn air induction but not a cone a panel filter.

    Welcome back! You'll have to get a few pics up of the 182. Is it completely standard?

    yeah completley standard, 1 previous women owner before, you can tell by the scuffs in the wheels lol, got 24,000 on the clock and i payed £6000 on a 2005 plate. i been looking around at the prices they go for, and i think it worked out all right. i payed an extra £250 to get all the belts done and auxillry belts done just to be on the safe side as they were due. I phoned up adrian flux today, my insurance is £1600 a year and they said next year my insurance will be £1200 which is fantastic for me lol so when i add me mum on it, it should go down a little more lol.

    yeah been so busy havent got round to taking the pictures yet but i will have them up by saturday, then im going to get my wheels refurbed and sprayed eventually.

    If you fit an induction kit with a dedicated cold air feed then it will result in increased performance of the engine. The cooler the air going into the engine the better the combustion and better performance.
    Note though that it won't see huge gains but if properly fitted with a cold air supply you should see some slight gains.

    I've had K&Ns and CDAs in the past and imo CDAs are better. They're bigger tho which can be an issue in crammed engine bays. I find they just tend to let the engine rev more freely.

    Get it remapped, takes the power to 195bhp and 161 lb/ft of torque. Then you'll have a clio 195 lol.

    well might do, just worried as cars have been made to suit the performance, if i go for a remap, then im going to be putting strain on the engine then im going to have do other modifications, im not that serious yet, quite happy with the 182bhp its got lol. when i get bored tho, i wont bother buying another car i will then get a tuning company to upgrade the engine lol

    It obviously will put more strain on the engine but hardly any, not enough to have to change anything or for it to be unreliable. When you do get bored, come see me as I'm not far from you or next time I'm in Kent as Ive got family there I can map your car :cool:

    I wouldn't worry about that. The way you should look at it is most cars are actually purposefully detuned or restricted from the factory for a numbers of reasons (emmissions, mpg, fall in place within a product line-up, cost etc etc). I know it's French but even 13bhp won't do any harm to the engine lol.

    It's 182ps btw, not bhp!

    Doesn't really, especially when most RS Clios don't even make the quoted power.
