Title: my dimma 5 gt turbo
Post by: cavsri130 on 07:03, Mon 16 July 2007
just got her and had a quick look over her, needs a few things but thats what projects are all about eh?

( ( ( ( ( ( ( (

the kit seems to be fitted properly, its all smoothed in, it has a couple inperfecrtions tho. the car aint been on the road with the kit cos the interior is full of dust but the tax disc on the window says 10-99 so its not been used for a while eh?
looking at the brake discs you wouldnt think thay havent been used for 7years!! may have been stored in a garage tho

now speaking of interior, an ali g fanatic must of attacked it!
( ( ( (
some bits are yellow inside, the whole car before the kit went on must have been painted in beniton colours, blue and yellow!

now i was told the engine needed work, a bottom end the guy said, it has no rocker cover or top boost pipe
( (
i connected up a booster pack and after a few winds over it started. didnt sound to have a bottom end knock but i only had it runnin for a moment, didint want to make to much mess of oil.

so what do you all think of her?

i got a rocker cover yesturday from a guy who had a camus look a like. he handed me a set of brand new red dot 20 groove discs for a turbo for nothing.......SCORE!  :D

will get a gasket on monday and take it for a tender drive up my street. you think the neighbours would mind??

Got it running, didnt take it for a drive tho,

bottom end knocking
top end chatering
air and pressure in the cooling system
wont idle
turbo blowing oil in to intercooler pipe
more than enough play in the turbo shaft! mate says new engine, i say new head set and shells, uprated carb and turbo!

always the optimist!

so when i get a chance ill go for the engine out and get dirty!

on a good side tho im getting a carisma ft bumper for the car
( (
should look like that but grey and not those wheels!

its gone and im SUPER gutted!  

it needed sills and there was no way of doin it without taking the kit off.

swapped it for a t reg vectra sri140 with no mot or tax.

thats the eyes peeled for another one so if anyone knows of one in scotland let us know,

went to see my old 5 yesturday to buy it back. this is the first time i got a chance to look over it properly...
best thing i did was sell it!!
sills were completely shot, kit woud need removed to do properly, boy said to use expanding foam to sort it, his face was priceless when i told him i was an mot tester and that was no use.

a boy is taking a white h plate through for me to see tomorrow so will see what like that is, i know the guy so he may keep it for me if i like it
