i put it in after killing 5 gtt boxes, its from a renault 9 and the gearing is slightly shorter, which is good for accelleration but also not so good for traction

5 boxes... F%*k me and i thought the GTT boxes were strong..

Wouldn't be "the choice" box for motorways...?

Still a great car mate.. :wink:

Hoping to get something similar for when the roads get warm and sticky again.. :D

Have you fitted the campus fuel filler thing, and done away with the aux pump... heard its something that should be done in highly tuned cars like your own..??
Also,  Is a seperate oil cooler needed with vnt..??

Did you fit the cam yet..?

I had a the standard fuel system setup it is normally removed by the POD boys to save weight it only becomes a problem if your racing hard with little fuel in the tank thus causing some starvation of fuel (running lean) as the aux tank pump is nothing more than a screen washer pump.

No external oil coolers are not really required, just use a good quality oil say 15w 50 mobile 1 and do regular services and I would recomend the fitment of an inline oil feed filter to pick up any crap before it gets to the turbo core.

With ref to Marks cam he should fit it as I ahd the same 293 deg came in my C1J and it was revved to 7800 rpm and wanted more tappets where a little noisey after though  :lol:

yeah i've got std setup too, as i never drive it it rarely gets used low on fuel. i dont even run it low at the pod as i believe you shouldn't change it to how ya would on the road.. i dont even lower tyre pressures lol

i'm running a std rad, with std inbuilt oil cooler too, oil is changed every couple of months, so about every 40 miles lol.

i will get the cam in, just not a case of slotting it in, head will need to come off and have the spring seats machined down, piper springs and vernier... i'll save it for the next time it breaks lol

Never knew there was in-line oil filters for turbos...?

Dont think i ever rev'd my car past 5000 rpm.. just incase i broke something..!!

Be nice to see what it'll produce when the cam is in, although will it make idling a bit lumpy..?

Interesting thread, will keep a eye on this alright... :wink:

very interested in it, probably a mod for my gtt.
are there many differences in the dashes?
is it bolted on?
electric wiring? many differences?

Don't know how I've never seen this thread before?!  :?:

The bronze 5 - awesome motor! 8)  Did you buy it with any of the mods or do it all yourself? Clearly had some serious dollars thrown at it!
As above with the clio dash comments - what was that like to fit? I hate the stupid visor thing above the clocks on the 5 dash! And what Clio dash is it? Williams? 16v?
The 2-tone 5 on 18's - that started life as a campus?!!! :!:

jay - cams still not fitted. think hes planning on pulling the engine out over the winter for a full check and prob fit it then. the round bits on both sides of the front bumper are quick release bolts to remove the bumper. atm the orange 5 is his daily drive as hes waiting on tax atm to get his new run around (1990 raider) on the road
