Greetings RS DCI owner

Discussion in 'New to the Club? Why not introduce yourself?' started by CJ_RSport, Sep 4, 2013.

  1. Hello everyone,

    I was recommended this forum by a mate who has recently joined Ed doe

    Im CJ from lancashire and have recently bought a Renaultsport Megane DCi absolutely love it. Makes a change from my 306 background

    I have owned 3 peugeot 306 Dturbo's one running a subaru turbo and big fuel pump, very cheap cars to work on and modifiy. But due to conrod failure and seeing a friend with a RS replica. I fell for the car so had to get one myself but not a replica.

    Im on .net but it seems very quiet and im more for forums which are for members rather than profits which I seem to have read a bit.

    So I have a Black RS DCI ive had the dpf removed, pipercross panel filter and remap it goes well hoping to get on a dyno in next month and see some power gains, I have recently got some cooksport springs to fit.

    Ive always been into my diesels and would hope in the future to see how far the DCI can be pushed as havent really seen many with much more than a map and maybe ktec intercooler. I hope to be looking into hybrids and much more soon.

    Hope to speak and meet you all soon

    Hello and Welcome!

    A fellow lancashire man! Whereabouts?

    I agree with the testing the limits - be interesting to see what can be done :smile:
     
  3. Just on outskirts of Bury yourself?

    Yes ive always loved torque and everyone seems to go for petrol sportscars these days and I like to be different so thought of exploring the diesel modding in the Megane RS will take a bit longer but hopefully be worth it with the torque figuires these cpuld potentially produce

    Is that with the Cooksport springs? They me be a bit low for me with all the speed bumps round here.
     
  14. Yes cooksports it does have.room.for some speedbumps tbh its not as low on the flat this is on a sloped carpark too
     
  15. bit of a vid going off what snapper has described about the revving to 5k being stage 2 i believe this is what mine is at need to change fuel filter as date stamped 3 years ago hmm aparently serviced recently too

  17. So as some may know ive had power issues which seem to have been 80% resolved by an egr spray cleaner and forte turbo clean and diesel treatment additives which has made a big difference

    The power issue is still unknown as need to get a clip reader to find the actual fault I still think egr is to blame but if I have time this weekend il be stripping it and cleaning out

    Have added some more orange in the form of reflective rim tape just to be a little different and also fitted a HID kit which took all of 40 minutes to do supplied by xenons online in oldham cracking guy good prices

    So heres the rim tape

    Soon to have a big payout so a trip to RS tuning is on the cards very soon for more power and get this power issue underlined first

    Gavin. RSM Admin

    HID's look miles better
     
  19. Agreed Gavin! So easy to fit but forgot to do sidelights while was at it is there an easy way lol?

    Need to arrange a mini meet soon too
     
  20. Gavin.

    Gavin. RSM Admin

    Just go through the arches for the side lights, bit fiddly but doable. Did you manage to get the light covers back on after the new bulbs had gone in? Mine are bodged on at the minute.

    Agreed on the mini meet! I'll keep an eye out for a cliosport.net one we can crash a decent one with Naith and others.
     
  21. Il have a dable tonight with sides then pal, iv got 15" forearms so bit fiddly for me lol

    I just cut a hole in the cap with stanley for rubber to fit snug and went on no probs the passenger side was a bit of a fiddle. I put bulb in then cap and pulled rubber once in place but kept pulling bloody bulb on passenger side.

    Yeah defo my mates got a megane and a clio RS so will have a word with him too was aside a grey RS on motorway this mornin there seems to be loads round here now lol
     
  22. Well had MOT done today only advised on tie rod which I knew about and rear wheels slightly buckled on inner rim
