Renault Megane 3 RS - tuning guide


The Renault Megane 3 RS is a high-performance vehicle known for its sporty characteristics. Here are some areas you might consider when tuning your vehicle:

1. ECU Remapping: One of the most common modifications for improving performance is to remap the engine control unit (ECU). By reprogramming the ECU, you can optimise the engine's parameters for increased power and torque output. KTEC RACING can custom tune all Renault Megane 3 RS models on our dyno cells in either Wolverhampton or Dorset, UK. 

2. Exhaust System: Upgrading the exhaust system can improve both performance and sound. Consider installing a performance exhaust system that reduces restrictions and enhances exhaust flow, leading to increased horsepower and a more aggressive sound. Check out our range of exhaust systems here

3. Intake System: An aftermarket cold air intake can provide better airflow to the engine, resulting in improved performance. It allows the engine to breathe easier and can increase power by providing a denser air charge. The KTR Induction kit is a true favourite. 

4. Suspension Upgrades: The Megane 3 RS already has a sport-tuned suspension, but you can further enhance its handling characteristics with aftermarket suspension components such as upgraded shocks, springs, and sway bars. These modifications can improve stability, reduce body roll, and enhance cornering ability. We offer a huge range of kits here

5. Brake Upgrades: As the Megane 3 RS is a performance vehicle, upgrading the braking system is crucial for improved stopping power. Consider installing larger brake discs, high-performance brake pads, and stainless steel brake lines for enhanced braking performance. Shop our range of brake upgrades here

6. Lightweight Wheels: Reducing unsprung weight can have a significant impact on handling and acceleration. Consider investing in lightweight alloy wheels designed for performance driving. Not only do they improve the car's aesthetic, but they also reduce rotational mass, resulting in better overall performance. We have a wide range of alloys in stock. 

7. Performance Tyres: Upgrading to high-performance tyres with improved grip and handling characteristics can significantly enhance the vehicle's performance and traction. We recommend Nankang NS2R for fast road use or AR-1 for track use. You can find them here

8. Aerodynamics: Upgrading aerodynamic components like a front splitter, rear spoiler, or diffuser can improve stability and reduce drag at high speeds, contributing to better overall performance. Check out what we offer here

9. Upgraded Intercooler: If you plan to modify the engine for increased power output, an upgraded intercooler can help keep the intake air temperatures lower, allowing the engine to perform more efficiently. We sell a huge range of intercoolers here

It's important to note that tuning modifications may void your warranty and can potentially affect the reliability and longevity of your vehicle. Therefore, it's advisable to consult with professional tuners or automotive experts who have experience with the Megane 3 RS specifically. At KTEC RACING, we can provide personalised guidance and ensure that the modifications are properly installed and optimised for your specific needs and driving conditions.
