only thing you can do is check with a wideband and go from there

other peoples carb specs may not be 100% on yours

1.2mm main
1mm ac
1.2 2nd stage
will be a good start for 14psi on a stock t2

i was there but i walked around when it was wet in search of dojo juice stall and for food then went back to the club stand so didnt see many stands,

laughed again at the mobile dyno that were using leaf blower fans and having to get the grease monkey boy to hold the wideband clamp in the exhaust  :roll:

I didn't watch any track action or drifting was tempted to go out on track when the sun came out but couldnt be arsed in the end  :roll:

dude the carb top white hoses arent right

The carb top ports are different sizes, the bigger port internally goes to the front of the turbo actuator and the smaller port goes to the metal breather pipework that goes to the back of the turbo elbow and the back turbo actuator port. DO NOT GET THESE THE WRONG WAY ROUND OR IT WILL BOOST UP TO HIGH HEAVEN AND BLOW THE HEADGASKET STRAIGHT AWAY

the front turbo actuator pipe needs to go to just the carb top, and not tee'd into the middle carb port ( for stock fitment/boost)

Or you can remove the white hose and block it and feed the front actuator port from the middle carb port, but then you need to block both carb top ports and remove and block the breather pipe on the back of the turbo (aka "cup mod" this will also tidy up the bay a bit due to less hoses hanging about

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: set up
« on: 20:35, Fri 26 August 2011 »
there maybe someone local with experience and the kit need to set these up and would save you alot of money

sounds like you just need a afr and det check and maybe tweak a jet or 2 and the timing if needed

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Brake problems
« on: 21:47, Thu 25 August 2011 »
are you locking the compensator lever to the front of the car when bleeding the rear brakes?

how are you bleeding the system manually or with an easy bleed kit?

silly question but easily over looked

are the bleed nipples at the top or bottom of the front calipers?
