  1. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Thanks Deb (our quasi Admin!). Appreciate that you are stepping up to get this sorted. To the actual admins, if you don't have time or are not that interested anymore maybe consider letting some others take the keys - I'm sure you have put a lot in to make the forum what it is hence you're accutely aware of what it'll take to keep it on track so if you're not in a position to facilitate (which is totally fine) then please let someone else take the reigns. We saw what happened when the production of calendars became unreliable (again, not a dig as everyone has a life outside of here) but this is the way the forum could go if we are not careful! Hopefully things will be sorted soon and this can all be history but please have a think about the future of this great community you have built!

    Tapatalk broken again? Can't seem to get in.
  3. Order in. Great job pulling this together.
  4. Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    Assuming the sensors fit, othwise may need to weld some bungs in. There is a large pipe at the rear of the head then a tiny pin prick in the top of the head, against which the hole in the intake mani seals. Correct. The Clio 3 ran COP so a mani from one of them may be an option (but harder to get and I'm not 100% on the intake port shape, same for the scenic for that matter!).
  5. Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    Haha. Yep, I bought a few phase 1 bits from the UK. As mentioned above the postage is always pricey! Happy to lend you the items and if it works you can buy (can agree a price). Even the mani could be a pain. As mentioned there is the sensors to wire plus the 172/182 Mani has a whopping breather hole which needs to seal against the rocker cover (scenic may be the same). There is also the throttle and I suspect the scenic runs coil on plug which won't fit under the rs manifold. I'm sure there is more! Pm me if you're interested (hopefully you're in Sydney).
  6. Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    Only one way to find out! If your in Sydney I can lend you an intake manifold (not positive it will fit), injectors, ECU (not sure if anyone can "adjust" the Scenic ECU) You will probably also need the throttle (not sure if connections are the same, also Map sensor wiring to consider). I suspect the wiring/ECU will be the stumbling block.
  7. Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    I think the difficulty is what will be compatible. Is the wiring the same. Will the UCH talk to an rs ECU. Will the rs gearbox connect with the scenic shafts (or scenic box to the rs engine and if so is it strong enough). Will the water/air con/power steering pipes meet up. Are the engine mounts and dogbone the same. Totally possible, and if you're handy at a reasonable cost, but it'll get expensive quickly if you have to pay for labour/fabrication. Could also consider a 225 conversion but speaking from experience I'd say costs would climb quickly!
  8. Hay guys just got myself a 172 what Coilovers do I get

    I'm pretty sure they run on anything including cups.....

    AST's! Run them on my 1.10 wakefield 182. Get them setup correctly and also get sticky rubber and next would be a diff! Try to remove some weight for free performance. Seats and harness are also nice. Unless you are going to town I would not spend anything at all on the engine except for maybe a remap.
