Title: 225 BHP . . . and need advice on future plans!
Post by: DanR5GTT on 22:03, Thu 10 July 2008
Here are a few pics of my 1988 R5 Turbo, 50k on clock and has run like new for 6 months that i have owned it and not 1 problem. Most of the engine has been changed or uprated in some way hence the power althought traction in lower gears is a problem :) Full spec to be added soon!

Post by: DanR5GTT on 22:14, Thu 10 July 2008

I take it you tryed to race it in liverpool? yeh it is pretty quick! since i bought it its had new clutch as the paddle clutch on it was a pig to drive and its been striped out. future plans......... bit more power and some restoration to the body work make it look how it should!

Ok so at the minit the car is running around 220 - 230 bhp, im gonna push it to 300 at whatever the cost but this will mean having to change alot of parts allready on even some bodywork but idont no where to start!! can any1 point me in the right direction??
Title:
Post by: 5teve L on 18:34, Sat 12 July 2008
I'll point you in the right direction mate, it's called the bank as you'll need a fat loan to get 300bhp out of the C1J & keep it running ;)

If you want that sort of power get a loan for 3-4k & do the clio conversion, it is proven to take 300bhp+ easy, the C1J can be done but not to a road car IMHO.
250-260 is about manageable mate, as i'm about to ind out.

You need to get the fueling sorted, very hard at that boost (30psi+) big lag monster turbo, a cam of some sorts, prob a custom jobbie, forged pistons & prob steel liners, headwork, prob big valve head.
NOS maybe as well.....

Lightened & balanced engine, twin or tripple plate clutch...
Why do you want 300 bhp in a road car anyway, just to brag to ya mates you have a 300bhp GTT ??
If so stick a big arse turbo & NOS on it & go to the local rolling rd, it will be shit on the raod though.

It's a 1.4, 50 year old engine (the design) at the end of the day ;)

300 is possible, but like u say it will need alot spending to keep it running. 260 bhp is fast enough tho giving around a 4 - 4.5 0 to 60 and top speeds of 150+ but still i have the money to spend so well c wot happens

Post by: dazzleandshine on 18:51, Sat 12 July 2008
300 bhp in a 5 would be wild but i think its a bit to much and 250 would be more fun and probally more reliable, ive spent a fortune on my engine gas flowed head stage 3, cam, ect ect and now iam looking at a big turbo and a bigger intercooler as i want to run about 200bhp and still have the car be reliable as it only ever comes out on a sunday and i dont want to spend all week fixing it.

300BHP would be wild, i'm just running 15psi carb top (about 150BHP maybe?) and already it feels to quick for the rest of the car. I think maybe i should have a look at handling and stopping before i push for any more.  :lol:
