A friend of mine has the renaultsport megan on a 2005. He was talking about the remap he had and he is now quoting figures that the car produces just shy of 300bhp
Now since all he has had done is a ecu reflash by one of these mobile guys surely he is talking
He even went as far to say that he had to back off in 3rd gear when chasing a
up a steep local road.......

I need some ammunition to throw back at him

mate, 300bhp with just a remap no way. Mind you I'll stick my neck out and say they are quicker than STs with similar mods based on my experience. If you need ammo just tell him at least you car isn't made of paper!

Seriously a relative works for Renault and some of the build specs are just scary.

theres an ex renault tech down by me who got a R26R remapped from 230 - 275. nothing else was done to the car, and because he was a head tech and specialises in renault sport, he knows the limits of the engine.

To be honnest i couldnt see it. I mean they are what 220 standard. Perhaps the
driver was just letting him have his thrills. And yes i know about the build quality. I used to use one as a works pool car. What a heap of junk

Its total
mate !! ..


My friend has the megane cup with an RS Tuning custom map with 3" downpipe and 200 cell sports cat with a miltek cat back and larger injectors and produced 286 BHP on RS Tunings rollers ( 4 bhp MORE than RS Tunings own car at the time !!!!!

The only car over 300 bhp is RS Tunings development car with a hybrid turbo fitted !! -The ONLY one in the UK i believe thats running !!

But with a better power to weight ratio than an
they are a quick motor with probably better handling !!!

Standard car superchips / upsolute / evolution remap takes them from 225 to 260 brake

I dont think there'd be anything between the 2 remapped

I considered one but the ride was so hard on the cup models it ruined the drive on british roads

They didnt seem that badly built to me
