Black R26 to 250 progress thread

  1. Hi all, another r26 owner moved onto a 250 on here.

    Old R26. Loved this car..

    Sold my r26 back end of last year and told myself I was going to move onto an e46 m3. Test drove both manual and SMG and both just weren’t for me. Felt really dated.

    So went back to what I know a bit about and looked back at renaultsports. With the advice off my good friend Tom who’s also just made the switch and having owned 3 clios and a megane previous it definitely made sense.

    This cropped up locally at MWP in Cheshire.
    2011 ‘61 on 60k.
    Pretty much every option bar pan roof
    Completely standard.
    Had brakes, full service, timing belt, dephaser, water pump, gearbox oil and brake fluid as part of the deal.

    Was never even thinking about black ones. Was adamant on a white one till I viewed. Just looked really evil.

    First mods were just basics..

    Got it home cleaned it, debadged the rear and added black badge covers

    Second day of ownership I booked the car in for a midbox chop.. me and quiet cars don’t mix well.

    And then just enjoyed driving it for a few weeks..

  2. Went for a nice subtle Gloss Black sunstrip for the car off a local lad Dave Marsden in Preston. Would recommend to anyone, real perfectionist.

    Then bought a new set of wheels for it. Team Dynamics pro race 1.2 18x8 in anthracite from Alex at Engine Dynamics. Big trip to Essex for these took them straight for refurb. Will be fitting when I sort some tyres.

    Then ordered some H&R 35/35mm springs from GNJ Motorsport. These came next day so pretty much got them straight on. Also fitted a stud/nut kit whilst I was at it.

    Then the worse job ever. Had a Forge Recirc valve to go on since I owned the car, put it off for ages. Tackled it with no injury’s which is extremely rare for me and megane Engine bays. Also fit a pipercross panel filter and removed the small sound deadening pad out the airbox

    Then most recently I’ve struck up a bit of a deal with scorpion to use the car on stand at French Car Show. I got a full 3” turbo back system for a great price so was obviously the next mod..

    Future plans are get the wheels on, get the Steevs sold and then use the money to buy an Airtec for the car, then fingers crossed it should have a hybrid and get booked into EFI for a map by the end of the year. I’ll be happy power wise to sit around 350hp. Then I’ll be looking to stick a set of coilovers on it and start to enjoy it on track.

  7. Since fitting the exhaust I’ve took the car to scorpion HQ to get some decals fit for FCS

    Then fit a GT Performance / Pipercross intake

    [​IMG]

    And picked up my team Dynamics from the paint shop

    [​IMG]

    And took it to my friends garage, whilst changing the wheels did the brake fluid swap for ATE TYP200..

    [​IMG]

    And the finished result was this ..

    [​IMG]

    Then had the car on stand at FCS with Scorpion.

    And also took the car for a blast out Round donington which was epic but also highlighted the poor tyres and the H&R springs are a little too soft for track for me, so I think coilovers are in order next mod. Specially after hooning Round cadwell with Tom in his OG 250 and having a couple of Megane battles, I’ve deffo caught the bug again for trackdays.

    More updates soon

  17. Also tonight whilst at “work” fitted the GT performance turbo pipe, which adds to the Intake pipe I’ve got off them and also just added a Pipercross cone which fills the gap of the airbox quite tightly

    [​IMG]

    Next job in the bay get shut of the shitty plastic sound pipe thing, and fit a Powerflex engine Bush.
