General Chat / hi guys. thinking of returning
« on: 11:03, Sun 15 May 2011 »
well long time no see for any one that remembers me, i had a r5 gtt raider, unfortanly the acuator pipe failed and it ate its head gasket at anything over 30psi as the gauge just shot round the gauge,
 any way im up for another, ive had a e36 and currently so far a 306 xtdt, which has pump mods running 18psi. so this car will go to the gf in a few months and im looking for a r5 to keep me happy again!

main qestion, what price am i looking for the following
1. needs work, but drivable while doing so
2. half decent, not much needed, maybe bit of rust
3. good condition hardly any ifat all rust but standard as far as possible

 (havent got cash fora mint one)

last time i was around mint ones were circa 1k and one looking sorry for its self around 400 quid, mine was good condition but not mint and would have got 700, ifit were not for the pipe


hope you guys can help, look forward to being around these cars again thanks

been on here a while now, and thought id put up some pictures of what ive got done,
applogise for all the pics!

this is how i got the car, not running with a burnt out wiring loom







all caused by this wire routed round the intercooler


after 2 weeks of searching for the looms i came across rtoc, and got the dash loom and o/s h/l loom

dash going back in




dash mostly back in, but had been ripped apart by previous owner, most clips are broke, so new dash will be next after body work


engine bay after routing some wires better


and unfortantly has bad body work, but 99% rust free,so happy with that


started sorting out the ornge peel on the drivers door




and after few weeks of polishing etc, and brightening up paint work
not there yet but will be (if weather holds up spaying the bonnet and front wing, and finnishing off the door





more to come when i sort out the bonnet and wing

think final goal will be to have a respray, but for now id like to make it look more presentable!

Renault 5 GT Turbo / clutch and gearbox
« on: 15:30, Mon 13 April 2009 »
how can i find out what clutch i have, i want to know also how much wear it has, is the only way to find out what it is by taking it apart? which by then you may as well have a h/d clutch to replace??

didnt know if there was a inspection plate?

also with gear boxes is there other boxes that fit to give a little bit more rev range? i feel it revs out so quick, yes it accelirates fast or maybe its coz im used to a e30 with long gears!

cheers

« on: 01:40, Mon 06 April 2009 »
im wonderig if ive set the boost controller on the right side of the acuater, 5tevel said some pipes are wrong

heres it when i brought it with the manual controler here



and this is now as i removed the boost controler but now putting it back on is causing boosk spike and back firing with it in or out, but relised i have had it on the left had side,

so what side does it go and are my pipes wrong??

is there any other r5ggt's near me or any meets soon say at lakeside or others

General Chat / engine change.
« on: 16:16, Sun 05 April 2009 »
how easy is it? im talking about having a track day engine along with track tyres and discs and pads (front) and id have the half rollcage in all the time so people can still sit in the back then id only have to remove rear seats if i felt like it

i mean i could swap over night before, go to the track day rag ti silly knowing its not my daily engine then change it back that afternoon or next day.

i know this sounds like a half arsed way of doing it but ive wanted a track car but cant afford two cars insurance etc as id drive to the track which is a mere 9 miles from me (brans hatch)

how long would it take to take out and fit another engine or am i talking out my arse again?? :?

im talking the same 1.4 t r5 enigne, just a tuned one

or should i just tune the enigne i have and look after it as a daily??

some shocking cars!!!!!

enjoy :P

when i got the car it had a set and forget boost controler, didnt want it on there incase it was too high so put the normal pipe back on,

am i better off putting it back on maybe its the oem pipe causing this?

i was told it was set at 20psi and re jetted to suit

if ive put the oem vavum hose back on and running stock levels would this cause mid range in boost hesitation if its jetted to 20psi?

if i drive qauter throttle it dosnt hesitate, only does if w.o.t


-----------------------------------------------

also noticed bov isnt working and im getting compresser surge which isnt good!

took vacum hose off and reved it and there was no vacum once throttle off, maybe bov is buggerd, or vacuam hose blocked?? im not sure how much vacum is suppose to be there!


-------------------------------------------------

also brake lights are not working, but was working before changing loom over maybe a relay?? tested switch works fine

checked bulbs by turning them 180 and re inserting in to bulb board

any other things to consider

and what realy is the rear brake lights (if there is a relay for this switch)

just to note indicators, reverse, fog and tail lights are working

----------------------------------------------------

and one more qestion (easy one if you know) whats the incraments on the boost gadge???

###############################
this is all thats wrong now and im realy hating this hesitation thing

cheers mat
