does anyone here remember that episode on topgear when james may gives a renault a "proper service" and the car gains back the missing 50 odd bhp that seems too have dissappeared since the car left the factory?

what did he do?

want to treat my car to a good looking over in the new years, and wanted suggestions to bring the car back into its prime!

He did all the obvious things then put a new inlet mani on it and injectors. I think its all the things that can get clogged up that kill the power

Just strip the basics down and clean, no need to replace!

injectors, Fpr,fuel rail,inlet mani,intercooler,breather hoses,coolant hoses,gaskets etc

Do the above with a full service abnd i bet your Vdub will run faster and smoother!
