Hi everyone!
As you can see I'm new on this forum. I'm not exactly Renault 5 GT Turbo maniac but I love everything with turbo. I had in the past Sierra Cossie, Legacy RS Turbo, Cinquecento Sporting with Novitec turbo set, even BMW 320d (it has turbo of course!) and now I'm building Cinquecento with 1.6 tubo engine. I live in Poland in Warszawa (Warsaw). Be pacient for me in the beggining.

Hello, I'm a 31year old dude, with a girlfriend of 19. :D
We own a R5 gte, chassiecode C409
In Norway cars are expensive, as in the UK, and they get more expensive as the get older, thanx to the distribution-network (Volvo dealerships!) :evil:

As a result of a testdrive in oktober '05 we now own our 2. gte
My girl had an incident with our first. (winter, ice, crash :( )

For those who don't know, gte is a 1720ccm, 95hp, Turbo lookalike.
Full bodystyling, and interior, but no extraequipment... Too keep the hp/kg rate good. :idea:

Hi, just signed up. I'm from Uckfield, East Sussex. Building up a sprint car using a Peugeot 106. So what am I doing here? Well, just to keep me quiet, and make a little technical project on the side, I'm turbocharging it, using bits from a R5 GTT.

So, i'll be asking lots of questions about how it all goes together when I start fitting it all, coz I ain't got anything to go on! Should be fun.

Herman, you're not far away in TW (see my sig!) - I'll be looking to have a poke around under your bonnet sometime, mate.

cheers, Phil

Hi im new to the forum, im on my 3rd R5 GTT both before sold not crashed !!! lol

1st was a resprayed cosworth blue 1987 R5 GTTonly had for 3 months and sold due to being at uni and needing funds.

2nd a Tungsten grey which i re-built and done up from scratch i had the pleasure of this car for 3 years hassle free motoring but did shed a little tear when sold but the 2500 cash in my hand soon wiped that away.

Now on my 3rd, this time in Silver and starting from scratch again, just dropped the slightly tuned, (around 160 bhp)  personally rebuilt engine with a volvo box back in after a full strip down and re-build now working my way round the SUPRISINGLY not rusty body but does need a good respray, so if anybody knows of a good sprayer let me know.

Look forward to talking to many of you soon.

Post by: e737wgj on 16:50, Sun 21 August 2011
Hi Guys Im Jason, im new to the forum but not to renault 5s. Ive owned 4 so far a TR, TL,  gtt but it never ran it was my first bought as an amature from a rip off garage with a blown head and a promise to fix but never did  :evil:  and my current a proper working model, which ive owned for the past 7yrs but never managed to get it properly on the road till now, due to time and money restraints as well as ongoing problems.

But none the less im here now, i knew the day would come when i could have that baby on the road, legal AND most of all Working!!!

so heres where im at. Got it out my folks garage back in April to get it mot'd what started as a few hundred pounds turned out to be failure on two pages and a shed load of welding.
1200 poorer and 6 weeks later, new mot and tax. I then had to have an alarm before bringing it home as every one ive owned has been raped! so i opted for a viper pager alarm 300 including fitting extra switches etc. its basic but does the job. so far no problems....touch wood.

the biggest ongoing problem ive faced for the past two months was trying to get the thing to run properly. been running rich, juddering etc, long story short lol after numerious trials and errors and more at the garage not to mention hours on the forum, i finally solved it!
turns out the previous owner tried to modify the carb to a ''group A'' and changed the main jet to a 1.5 without any other mods! also got the a few of the diaphrams on the side the wrong way round etc. Thanks to Bob and Jay @ cgb its now all solved!

so motor is running much better needs a few minor adjustments, now i have to get the boost working properly.
ive got a group a set up but i think its loosing pressure somewhere and its showing negative pressure on the gauge. I need a diagram so anyone that can help, it would be much appreciated

neways its good to be on the forum and i look forward to meeting u guys and coming out to a few runs etc

i've always been a big fan of the r5's and got the opportunity 6 months ago to buy one  :D
i'm an englishman living in australia so these cars are pretty rare over here !!
my local renault dealer here cannot do anything without part numbers.
i'm after rear wheel bearings at the moment but can't seem to find the part number on the net ??
i know i can get parts of e.bay and sent over from the u.k  but i'd rather try here first to save on postage and waiting time.
anyone know a website where i can get r5 part numbers or no the number for rear wheel bearings for an 87 r5 ?

Hi guy

im Rob, from the northampton area (i know poor me). how are you all? im on the rtoc as ren_5hitbox, i dont talk much but read every post lol. currently have a campus which will one day have something done to the engine (no idea what route yet).

ive wanted a 5 since my cousin owned one when i was a lad and he used to take me out through the town and drag everyone whilst listening to sneaker pimps 'spin spin sugar' :/

i also am self employed doing vehicle wraps and graphics for a living, some of my work has featured on top gear and 5th gear but maybe i will go on about that in a new thread

anyway.... enough about me, hope to hear from some new enthusiasts and would be good to have a midlands meet or something sometime???

stay safe  :D be cool  8)

Hi I'm new to the site, have a 91 gt turbo I've had for years, it's been blown a fair few times, I live by two sayings "drive it like you stole it" and "if in doubt flat out" looking forward to having the beast on the road again. Planning a trip Newcastle to Amsterdam, down Germany, stopping off at the ring of course! dropping into the top if Italy then over to France for some mountain passes back up to Britain! Wonder if it'll make it :?

Hi all. I live is Sri Lanka and sort of a collector. Classic car scene here is a tough one because the regulations don't allow importation of old vehicles. The general interest in classic cars have picked up in the last 5 years or so, so they are becoming increasingly costly to acquire.

My life with Renault 5 GT Turbos go back over 25 years - I was one of 5 people that imported 5 GTTs to Sri Lanka. Yes, you understood right. In all, there are only 5 cars in the country. I imported mine from the UK in the early 1990 - it was a tungy. In addition, at the time, there was a black, a red, and a blue. All Phase 2. In addition, there was a white Phase 1. Following the arrival of my son, I had to part with my 5 in 2000, and regretted it ever since. The good news is that I'm now friends with the current owner who has cares deeply for the car. Anyway, to make a long story short, I bought the red car about two years ago - in a project state. It sat in my garage till a month or so ago since I was progressively collecting all the parts I require. It is now in a work shop and the tinkering work has started. I've imported pretty much everything from and engine and transmission to fenders, a dashboard, interior trim, bonnet, etc. The list in endless.

Among other cars I own, is a 205 GTI 1.9 - Sri Lanka's only 1.9. There are two other GTIs, which are 1.6s. That too was a project when I bought, and went through a patient and painstaking restoration. Its worth every minute and penny because it is an absolutely joy to drive. But of course, I miss the punch if the GT turbo and I can't wait to get behind the wheel.

Shall keep the forum posted on my progress.

Thank you.
