Renualt 5 GT  turbo & Gordini head conversion you mean??

I think you need an inlet manifold made,you deffo need an exhaust manifold & down pipe as they are on opposite sides instead of the same like the GTT, i think you have to modify one of the cams to make it fit also, most that covert to this head use it to go EFI.

GTTBoy.. ..thanks for help

RickGTT.. ..why? gordini head si much better - better ports, bigger valves etc. I plan to go EFI (megasquirt) and exhaust and intake manifold aren't so hard to made (i have some friends who can make me flanges and know how to TIG weld 8) ).
