not to sure if im going to keep the sleeper look tbh, i cant decide at the moment

in the renualt 5 gt turbo section below there is a poll i run few weeks ago with some smooth campus bumpers vs gt kit

leaving in a bit to make journey up country to pick engine and gearbox up off bye_c_ya_... that is what will kick start the project

Yeah I can't really grumble at the bodywork especially for the year, the only real bit wear abd tear is passenger front wing but I am getting GT wings as will need then for aches to fit,

Hopefully progress report report will follow soon, hoping to swap over engines next weekend

Campus alternator should work.

I think it might be slightly lower rated?

Post by: Chadster on 19:06, Tue 08 February 2011

Yes.

It's something to do with the headlights. When you turn the sidelights on the headlights also come on dimmed.

As long as you dont have a GT Turbo badge on the back, would look cool with an original GT kit, i've seen a few of these done that look better than the real articles   (on the other hand, if you thinking of fitting a GT Turbo engine, keep it looking like a campus   8)
Title: Re: Campus Turbo...
Post by: Ash-Lee on 22:18, Sun 04 September 2011
I reckon keep it a sleeper.

Just lower it on some 13" steelies and run ~20PSI. Then go and confuse some people.  :lol:

Post by: GTTboost on 23:54, Sun 04 September 2011
As above..  just seen you putting the turbo lump in...  keep it a sleeper  8)
