well it is a Renault engine. And not one of their 'best'......
At least the turbo conversion was a bolt on upgrade :D

About the same as a 1.8 Granada then. Or a 2.4, which drinks like a 2.8 but goes like a 2.0l.


That is also a Mitsubishi GDI trait before the EGR fills the inlet with carbon and the throttle body fails; an 1800 with the power of a 1600 and the thirst of a 2.2, with spark plugs at £10 each. Assuming the crank doesn't snap.

I haven't seen another Omega for at least 2 years, so thought I'd mention it as a sighting.  :y

Desmond auto black estate with black leather in Harry Buckland's scrap yard in Cheltenham, doesn't look to have been picked over too much.  :D
