Cody Forbes, '84 Renault R5 Turbo2

Postby Haudi » Fri Jun 30, 2006 11:55 pm

Name: Cody Forbes

Vehicle: 1984 Renault R5 Turbo2

Engine: 1.4l pushrod I-4, turbocharged approx. 200hp

Injection: Multi-port, MS v2.2 hardware with Dual Table 1.02 software. No TPS so I intend on going to MAPDot, but haven't yet.

Description: My 6th MS vehicle to run to date, and by far the coolest. Future plans include ditching the stock pre-turbo throttle body in favor of individuals, a more modern slightly larger turbo, a better IC and a touch more boost. Goal is to break 300hp.

Currently all pictures are pre-MS, I'll get some new ones soon:

Update:

I switched to the latest MSnS-Extra code and went with the RPM based accel. I tried MAPDot and it just didn't work quite right for this particular applicaton, but the RPM based worked better then perfect!!

I found that the stock R5 Turbo2 turbo is only good for 12psi, after I tried screwing it to 15 and it just bled off as the revs went up. Still it's giving a good mid-range power surge and the car is ALOT faster since the MS went on.
