yeh there F-ing quick. mines 320 bhp with a short ratio box it can be scary. depends how you drive them ifyou take it steady off boost then youll get aroun 24 mpg. if your on boost all the time make sure theres a fuel station within 5 miles of you... lol

hmm  :?  another reason i wanted to go low comp aswell is coz the standard compression ratio  on a 5 of 7.9:1 is crap & quite high so even tho fueling would be set up its still stress on the h/g running high boost then after time. i no k-tec are running standard pistons & comp ratio in there 5's at 30 psi but they only probably run them once a month at santa pod or sumwhere... where as running 20 psi every day even with fueling set if you think about it that comp ratio is quite high. with low comp your going to have more volume of air in each cylinder = less stress on head & h/g... if that makes sence lol  :?

Well i havent been on here for a while as i sold my 5 & bought a pulsar gtiR. Thing is i just cant get the 5 bug out of my system so thinking of selling the pulsar & returning to 5 ownership  :roll:  anyway as we all know the annoying thing with 5s is the headgasket probs.
so my plan is to buy a 5 for around 500 that is a tidy 1 but has a knackerd engine or somthing. as i want to build the engine myself (low comp & forged) as im sick to the back teath of blowing headgaskets even after having fueling set up. ive owned 3 reni 5s now n& done the h/g's on 2 of them. so here is my plan to provent h/g failier.

low comp forged pistons.
forged rods.
steel liners.
group a h/g & high tensile head bolts.
head work.
285 cam & pully.
copper core rad.
in car fan swith.
fueling set for 20 psi

most of it if i can find it will be second hand as we all know none of us want to pay k-tec's prices for new parts.
ill spend 500 on a good clean car with a blown engine as ill obviusly be rebuilding it. so that leaves me 2500 for build!
what do you guys think? & will it be more reliable on the h/g side? will i do it??  :?
