R21 Turbo Project To Finish

Does anyone remember Stevie Mckechnie & his R21 turbo ?
Stevie was sadly killed in a car accident in aug/sept 06 & his brother Craig has asked me to finish off the mechanical work on the R21 he had as a sort of tribute to him.
I believe the last thing done to the car was a front mount intercooler & bigger turbo . This seemed to cause the car to run hot (poss running too lean?). Can bigger injectors be fitted & either the ecu chipped or re-mapped to combat this?
Also, who can supply samco hoses or equivalent?

Any help & info greatly appreciated Jimmy.

Sorry I don't remember Stevie. A sad loss I'm sure

I'm sure the R21 ecu can be remapped but I'm not sure about the injectors.
Please have a look on www.performancerenaults.com and look for Jo or Chris. They may be from the continent, but I'm sure they can supply all the info you'll need. Use the search facility and it should throw up a few pointers for you.

HERES a link that should help. Slightly off topic, but it should point you in the right direction.


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
