My 1st Renault 5 gtt
« on: 00:44, Mon 04 January 2010 »
a few weeks ago i got my 1st 5 gtt. had it a day and the head gasket went. i was told of the lad i gt it off that it had an engine rebuild 500 mile ago, so he said!!!
what a start. so got it in the garage, stripped it down and found the head to be very badley pitted. took it to get skimmed and the lad said that the head had never been skimmed before. bought a 1.9mm uprated headgasked from k-tec racing and uprated head bolts. put it back together, sorted out the vacume pipes and what have you as they were all over the place when i got it.

had the 5 back on the road since christmas eve and all seems fine. going to check the head bolts tomorow and flush the engine and change the oil as its still a little murkey. had the car running at standard boost since i have changed the head gasket - bout 8 to 10psi

i have on order a front mount intercooler (core size: 550x175x65mm) what should hopefully be here monday or tuesday so i can hopefully get this fitted next weekend

any way here are a few pics i have gettin over the past few days















Then the snow got worse  :lol: and i got stuck afew times

No, the wheels are 16", i have the 285mm brake kit on the front so cant realy go much smaller, could probs fit 15s on but i like the 16s i have on

i dont no the colour of it, going to take it to a paint shop to see if the can make me up some paint to match as it has a few dints and scratches i want taking out

285mm brake kid you can get some 15" alloys to fit although I do remember someone saying on RTOC that the 16v turbines catch the caliper.  I am sure someone can confirm for you though matey.

Welcome to the forum.

Nope, that's not true... friend of mine has fitted the K-Tec big brake kit and has the Clio 16V wheels. It's close, but it fits. :)
