Modifications for the Renault Safrane

Really hot tuning tips and advice.

Available in standard form with power of upto 171bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Safrane. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 188.1bhp to 290.7bhp 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 Car Tuning Guide suggest that if you have a lower powered version you should do an engine swap with a ‘171bhp Safrane Hatchbacks’. Already a popular choice for tuning up, especially the more powerful SafranesCar Tuning Guide have been impressed with the addition of stainless steel exhaust systems on the Safranes , if you want to improve your top end go with an air induction filter. You should also get a better fuel pressure regulator such as those supplied by FSE

The Car Tuning Guide recommend that on the Safranes , you get a fast road cam. Turn your attention next to the Safranes engine head. With a good gas flowed ported engine you will see much better mid and peak range power.

The Safranes come in various power levels right up to 171bhp as per the Safrane Hatchback If you apply a few tuning mods to this model of Safrane you will see power gains from anywhere between 188.1bhp to 290.7bhp. But this sort of power requires some pretty heavy investment and a hell of a lot of engine work. .

Renault put together a nice package but the turbo Safrane 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 most powerful Safrane has a healthy 171 bhp. In a competition setting you may well, with some forced induction, reboring and other major work see power figures between 222.3 bhp to 324.9bhp with mods we have outlined above.) The Safranes handling can be dramatically improved with some choice suspension modifications. A drop of 35mm will work well on most cars, any lower and you will hit other problems.
