Some possible Tuning info for the hardcore NV200 owners

renault 1.5 dci engine example
universal front mount intercooler

Just been browsing for tuning mods possible for the Renault 1.5 dci and came across this site where there are some great ideas. Apart from chipping , remapping and similar the main way forward seems to be a bigger intercooler. I have not done this and do not know if it is possible or has been done by anyone on an NV200 or Evalia. Any help anyone?
Who’s going to be the first with 130 bhp plus? Bigger brakes anyone.
I believe that a performance clutch is available for some versions of the 1.5 dci engine but again not actually been able to check if these will fit NV200. Again any keen DIY ers done one yet ???
Anyone know of an intake kit?

    My 2nd hand, 2 year old, 110,000 mile Evalia has, for the 2nd time in 2 weeks, displayed both red and orange engine symbols indicating a fault. The 1 St time traced back to carbon deposits on the valve, the 2nd, yet to be diagnosed- suggestions welcomed?

      Hi Ken, very difficult to advise without an error code and more information. Carbon deposits on valves come about from the following. Incomplete combustion of diesel due to: incorrect diesel injection timing, poor inlet air filtration, incorrect engine oil , worn piston rings and /or valve stem sealing. Poor fuel (cheap homemade biofuel perhaps?) Driving style and or long periods of ticking over (cab use or multi-drop deliveries). Need more info for the 2nd faut. Looked after, the engine should be good for twice the mileage.

        Hi Dinkum, thanks for the info’, the 1st diagnostic test revealed, OBDII code P0234 a turbo overboost fault and my local garage rectified this, however Richy and John at Autocare suggested a new valve would be needed? Taking it back today. Other than that, love the van, great for carrying my kayak, planning to do the full campervan conversion – if I can sort the engine problems.
        Cheers, Ken
