My 5 Raider Project
« on: 19:02, Wed 13 May 2009 »
hi guys im new to the site, and have only just got my first 5.

Its a Raider that well hadnt be loved and ruined slighty but all will be straight with it soon.

This is what it looked like when i got it







So my plans are to get the car looking lovely and clean again on the outside, car will be slightly lowered, and the engine is going to be tuned for abit of extra power.

so the work begins


Silcone hose heaven under the bonnet shame about the colour not my cup of tea. These will be sold and new ones to replace will be purchased.


Strip most of the piping out ready for engine removal


Engine bay was very dirty so been degreased and pressure washed out




Engine has now mainly been stripped down.

Currently trying to sort out what spec engine should be built to for around 180bhp.

But alot of work to go and alot of money :D speaking to painter soon for a respray.

Cheers for looking Dave

Forgot to mention that the exhausts are going for a rear exiting system

I always take the engine out from the top.

Remove the bottom pulley and that will give you enough room to slide it away from the gearbox.

Hi, nice car - will be a beast when you've finieshed! I'm sure I saw this on ebay or pistonheads recently, or was it just another exhausts-through-the-boot one??
On that note, I'm glad you're removing that - it's one of the most ridiculous mods I've ever seen! Cutting all the boot floor and bootlid about just to be different, lose your bootspace and make all a lot noisier inside surely? :?  :?  :?  :?:

thanks for all the input guys

first car was on ebay i see it and was local to me (finaly after looking for 8 months) since im down south east by dover not many in this area.

the exhaust didnt seem to loud to be honest i just didnt like it and the hole in boot floor isnt that extreme.

plans are to get the shell looking mint and lovely again and slowy but surely build up a slight better spec engine that what it had. (standard lump with massive front mounted intercooler and hoses)

wanting to run around about 180bhp. when she is ready it will be going to french car show just doubt it will make it this year :P.

So keep watching this space as the goodies arrive so will the pics :D
