overheated lol i wish lmao, blew the head gasket mate had to rebuild the engine!. all is good tho, iv had the head skimmed and put stem seals in it as it didnt have any, and not the pants renault ones that fail all the time.
 Also rewired the engine bay and done a bit more tucking so wiriing is mint now and a lot more hidden away plus made new earth straps etc as old ones looked naff.
Iv had all brackets, plates, water res tank, strut brace, hose clips, and anything else i could have polished lol has been done. The bay has been degreased and had a bit of a polish so looking fresher, hoping to drop the lump out over winter and get the bay resprayed as its a bit worn n chipped in places.
other bits to mention are re-route of water pipes as carb is no longer water cooled,removed the thermostat to increase flow (gonna trial this), also going to put alloy rad in but getting custom made fan bracket to hold two 10"electric fans, as tubs likes to get hot when the vnt has woken up lol.
well will keep u posted hopefully gonna turn him over today and see how it runs?? :)

ok i need to get in touch with jimmy to find out whats the koo lol as to how he had it set. im sorta new with performance and lumps as im a car audio head at heart, but im keen on learning about the r5 as iv loved them for so long but never owned one. just from what a good mate told me i was able to strip down the head etc iv got the new head gasket, oil, coolent, sump washer etc but am reluctent on putting it back together as im not sure of what else to be checking before i do so. iv degreased it all and the top of the pistons look mint and liners kool too, also none of the push rods look damaged either only minor i can see is a fracture (very small) in the head gasket between cylinders 3 and 4 ???

4x100 - 5x130 adaptors for Porche wheels ;)
5x120 for BMW.
5x112 for new VW, Audi and Merc wheels.

The Teledials look perfect on this. I'd love a set of D90's for mine.
the only thing is don't the adaptors push out the hubs quite a lot further than before? I suppose you get round this by using an unusual offset on your wheels you'd never normally use otherwise? :?

things are MEGA close but works, the only issue im having at the mo is the car is too low all round, so its making the ride harsh and clips on kerbs and stuff it just isnt fun at this height but will have no complaints once iv raised it up a little
