Pics of my R5 - UPDATED 15/01/2010 pic heavy!!
« on: 19:49, Sun 03 May 2009 »
hi here are a few pics of my r5 gt im rebuilding

these are pics from when i first started



nasty intercooler someone mounted on the front of the car and cut out the slam panel making me loads of work drilling out and fitting a new slam panel



awaiting my new piston and liner set





few pics of engine after rebuild











 this is the exhaust im fitting taking off the twin exhaust









here are a few pics of  my donor car







door cards filled and primed ready for gloss black paint



my next plans are lift up the back end, fit a new standard front slam panel bumper and grill. new back bumper, tidy up the engine bay and get the auto sol out lol. new t2/t25 turbo. mint all the body work and fit my new door cards.

I have now moved on with my project and over the last few weeks been spending the cash.  The car is currently in the bodyshop having a full respray in the original black paint after being to the panel beaters where i had new inner and outer sills new bumper fixing points front and rear, new slam panel, all new fixing points on front and rear wings for arches.  I have bought all new panels, front and rear bumpers, ront and rear arches, new sideskirts and new bonnet and all new fixing clips and rubbers.  I have also had the tacky petrol cap removed from the boot and put back in the original place on the rear quarter.  I have bought all new lights including fogs and indicators.  I have also bought a few new parts from gt tuning, the dump valve, spider valve, in car boost valve.  I have spent £4000 lol. but its all worth it restoring one of these gt turbos.  here are a few pics of the project.

New alloys





re-upholstered seats





matching door cards





New hoses



bits back from the spray shop











Will upload more pics of the car when its back from the spray shop.

heres some more recent pics
new oil cooler




the engine bay








new exhaust sound amazing like a scooby kind of


the interior fitted


plastic door cards not finished yet gonna do the pinstripe blue


thats it for now just bought a few goodies wideband, all the gauges and ordering a bigger new turbo from adam l , doesnt look much but its emptied 5k out of my pockets,but its lighter for the track lol hope you all like it, will hopefully finish the car and the thread before the french car show!!!!

they are rh classics mate only 25 sets made originally vw fitment but slightly  altered to fit, i love the wheels only downside can get bigger than standard discs so had to whip the 285s off, but now running on tarox discs and ferodo pads.i think the alloys were originally marky marks on here but i bought them off a guy in mirfield.

Hello mate, I can see that you have a Nürburgring sticker on your tailgate? Did you ever drive on the Nordschleife?? I drove there 3 years ago. One of the best experiences of my life :D

They just lift out.

I undo the conrod then pull the whole piston and liner out, i find it easier to seperate that way. If the rings are quite tight on the liner i have trouble 'grabbing' the lip of the liner to pull it free with my sausage fingers.

They just drop in, theres a small seal between the liner and block which are about £5 if that for all 4.
