Renault 5 Energy
« on: 12:51, Wed 30 May 2007 »
Its not a GTT, but still (I hope) an interesting R5. It is 1993 red Renault 5 Campus.

Engine:
swaped 1.4 8V Energy lump (E6J, 80HP)
mild DIY head word
JB1 046 gearbox from Renault Express (4,2 FD)

Suspension:
complete front suspension from R5 GTT with shortned standard spings :roll:
H&R lowering springs (-40mm) - jet to be installed

Brakes:
GTT calipers
Lucas discs
Trusting/Fritech (race) pads

Wheels:
original 13" steelies with 165/60-13 Falken ZE-502 tyres
6Jx14 OZ F1 CUP - must send them for sand blasting and powder coating (in black)
195/45-14 Toyo T1S tyres

Interior:
R19 1.8 16V seats
GTT stearing wheel + 5cm spacer

Exterior:
stock beside some holes in front bumper :lol:

I'm waintg for some orderd parts to come: oil and water temp. gauges (2") + tachometer, used racing seats and some other small stuff.

Plans:
extensive head work
bigger carb (probably 32/34 or 32/36 Weber/Solex)
GTT grill
...


Here are some pictures:








Seats - from left to right - Campus, GTT, R19 16V:




Brakes - on the letf are standard ones, on the right sre from GTT:

Latest update...


...I've finally found couple of hours for changing my old box (JB1 035 - weird ratios, with FD 3.4 :roll:), with this new one from Renault Express (gear ratios better suitet to my engine, with FD 4,2.. ..thats enough for top speed aprox. 200km/h (125mph) at 7000RPM). I need short box, since I'm driving autoslaloms with this car + it's my daily driver :lol:

14" OZ F1 CUP wheels:


Sand blasting and powder coating si curently too expresive for my budget, so I've decided to clean, sand and prepair these wheels myself - this one is finished and is waiting for painting.. ..other 3 wheels are still waiting to be finished:


New 195/45-14 Toyo T1S tyres :twisted:


Slowly I'm making the progress..

No body styling. This car is used as daily driver and for autoslaloms, so styling isn't the priority. I will be lowerd for one or two cm more as it is and some day it may get colored bumpers (in same color as body).

Next step will be engine turning :-) Since I'm driving in <1600ccm class I'll stay with 1.4 energy lump. A known Slovenian rally mechanic and driver will lighten and balance bottom end (cranck, flywheel, pistons, rods), port&polish the head and lower the head for higher CR. Other components will remain standard (for now), except ported&polished exhaust manifold and bigger carb or maybe injection from 1.4i engine (98+ Clio 1.4 75HP), with remap.

1.4 energy engines with lightned&balanced bottom end and headwork + ECU remap (SPI models) had between 100 and 110HP (reved up to 8300RPM) on standard cam and intake/exhaust, so it should be a very fun car to drive (110HP and 700kg when striped) :twisted:

Just get some clear front indicators and clear side repeaters, and it will be a killer for sure!  :wink:
