UK-based tuner K-Tec Racing has released a power boost kit for the Renaultsport Twingo.

Launched in 2008, the Renaultsport Twingo is a pocket rocket featuring a naturally-aspirated 1.6-liter engine producing 131 bhp (98 kW) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque. K-Tec thought the car deserved more power and lifted output to 163 bhp (121 kW) and 192 Nm (142 lb-ft). These figures were possible by installing a high-performance tubular exhaust manifold and system, remapped ECU and Cat Cams Stage 1 cams.

They haven't tested the car's performances but it should do the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) faster than the 8.7s necessary for the standard model, while top speed should be above the stock 125 mph (201 km/h).

The full kit costs 2,625 GBP and comes with a 12-month warranty. It is compatible for any Renaultsport Twingo 133 model from 2008 onwards. Individual components are available on request.

Further details are available in the attached press release.
