Renault tuning guide, we take a look at the latest and greatest tuning mods for the Grand Scenic and report on the best trends and latest power tuning mods.
Available in standard form with power of upto 166bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Grand Scenic. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 182.6bhp to 282.2bhp depending on how far you want to go. The larger power figure would need major work like a rebore, balancing, porting polishing and an agressive cam. It would also take a fairly hefty dose of forced induction.
The more powerful Grand Scenics respond well to tuning mods. The most frequent modification we see on the Grand Scenic include sports exhausts, air intakes or induction kits and a fuel pressure boost valve.
The modification that gives the biggest power gain on your car would be a fast road cam. Getting better flow through the head of the engine would reward your Grand Scenic with more power. So get the engine head polished and ported.
The most powerful Grand Scenic in our database offers 166 bhp. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 182.6 bhp to 282.2bhp with mods we have outlined above.
Renault put together a nice package but the turbo Grand Scenic owners have a real tuners dream. A remap and Intercooler will add a lot of power to the engine and in some cases you can double your power. The top Grand Scenic offers a base power level of 166 bhp. When setup for motorports we can expect to see almost mythical power figures approaching 215.8 bhp to 315.4 bhp! Suspension upgrades are next on every Grand Scenic owners priority list. Although lowering improves handling you should stick to a drop of 35mm.
We will have more detailed Grand Scenic modification guides in the near future. Please check the site regularly for updates.
