my old skool 80's r5 turbo
« on: 10:26, Wed 25 May 2011 »
Hey all

Did a deal with my diesel saxo with this a few weeks back and i love it,guy i got it off was 50+ which will probably explain the styling,i'd like to put it back to standard lookin but i just cant bring myself to do it,
I suppose its cos when i were growin up this is how a modded 5 looked LOL!!

Theres quite an extensive spec list for the engine which is a bonus,

anyway let me know what you guys think :)

OH AND IF ANYONES GOT ANY 15" 3 SPOKE ALLOYS KNOCKIN AROUND THEY WANT SHIFTIN LET ME KNOW ASAP!!!

Very nice - looks well tidy! I take it you're kidding about the 3-spokes though?!

I don't have any, no. You might remember a GTT called 'black beauty' which I think had 16" 3-spokes on. They did quite suit it I thought. On the whole though I think they look quite dodgy especially the smaller you go. But each to their own.
Best bet would probably be breakers yards and ebay.

i have standard mirrors for it LOL,

spec is ...gt tuning HE7 turbo
group A carb
285 cam
low comp piston/liner kit (gt tuning)
it has other bits and bobs but somewhere through its life things like the lobster pot ect have been removed.

it runs 1.5 bar atm with no problems but a front mount and boost increase on the rollers is next on the to do list along with the standard mirrors and maybe a new front bumper
