Title: my new R5 Gt
Post by: astragsibon on 15:46, Tue 30 March 2010
Well been looking for a while spotted a red R5 Gt turbo non runner so a snapped it up, it is taxed and tested but doesnt run..drivers door is fucked and wont shut so is tied shut with rope, interior is sound pretty clean for a Turbo trim
so today i replaced 2 tyres on the megane alloys as it had 2 odd front wheels on, bought new fuel filter,oil filter,spark plugs,ignition leads,distributor cap and rotor arm, also bought a kenwood mp3 player.Has a few fancy things under the bonnet, uprated turbo with a huge actuator, chrome rocker cover,chrome fan bracket, alloy carb top,alloy oil degreasing chamber, blue samco hoses, dump valve, scorpion s/s exhaust,
Garage pickded it up to get it running and sort fuelling problem out
Plenty more to come on this once i get it running..its got good potential
how i got it...iam happy with it good base car imo

changed oil and filter, also secured fuel pump up and changed fuel filter, changed some hoses under the bonnet to samco ones, changed std intercooler for an alloy pace one, still not sure whether fuel pump regulator is goosed so im not staring it until i get it looked at, also fitted my kenwood cd player and sorted 6x9s out which will be going once i get a std uncut shelf
its starting to take shape a little bit now

so just been back out decided to rip passenger side rear arch off and i was pretty chuffed to see it was solid behind  :D i'm gonna take kit off bit by bit cos some cracker has smoothed it in to body, managed to get the phase 1 arch temp fitted obviously all the bodywork will be sorted properley when it gets painted

Gotta love the Phase 1 arches  8)  Are you smoothing the top slits or hunting the under light trims?
Title: Re: my new R5 Gt
Post by: astragsibon on 18:36, Wed 12 May 2010

yeah im gonna have a look at this over weekend think half of them are unused, iv only put the inline fuel filter in so i can check my petrol is not returning any dirty fuel back as ive had fuel in my oil and my intercooler was half full of fuel, so ive changed oil for fresh etc
Nice to have positive comments  :D

Just bought a set of clio turbines to go on so i can be them awful 16's
