my new R5 Gt
« on: 15:46, Tue 30 March 2010 »
Well been looking for a while spotted a red R5 Gt turbo non runner so a snapped it up, it is taxed and tested but doesnt run..drivers door is fucked and wont shut so is tied shut with rope, interior is sound pretty clean for a Turbo trim
so today i replaced 2 tyres on the megane alloys as it had 2 odd front wheels on, bought new fuel filter,oil filter,spark plugs,ignition leads,distributor cap and rotor arm, also bought a kenwood mp3 player.Has a few fancy things under the bonnet, uprated turbo with a huge actuator, chrome rocker cover,chrome fan bracket, alloy carb top,alloy oil degreasing chamber, blue samco hoses, dump valve, scorpion s/s exhaust,
Garage pickded it up to get it running and sort fuelling problem out
Plenty more to come on this once i get it running..its got good potential
how i got it...iam happy with it good base car imo





my old R5

managed to get a little bit done this weekend, put new plugs,dizzy cap, rotor arm and lumenition leads on, got my leather trim fitted
changed oil and filter, also secured fuel pump up and changed fuel filter, changed some hoses under the bonnet to samco ones, changed std intercooler for an alloy pace one, still not sure whether fuel pump regulator is goosed so im not staring it until i get it looked at, also fitted my kenwood cd player and sorted 6x9s out which will be going once i get a std uncut shelf
its starting to take shape a little bit now

Gotta love the Phase 1 arches  8)  Are you smoothing the top slits or hunting the under light trims?
