Sounds like poss gasket issue mate if you heating water up quickly and low on compression

Sounds like possible fuel pump relay issues

I personally wouldn't run a switch for the pump, have it wired in correctly there is a reason why Renault done it that way to start with  ;)

Just unwind it alittle till it reads the boost you want, there no set length as all actuators are different due to strength and age

You got it right mate, the pic on the piston is of the crank and flywheel so point that towards the flywheel

You have to remove the cover on the aei and you will see a small inlet port on the diaphragm body, this is where the vacuum pipe goes

Is he looking for a complete working car or a project?

I have a standard main jet
1.00 1st stage
1.37 2nd stage
O.9 air corrector
I was thinking of taking my 1st stage down to 0.9

What boost that set for? Might be worth reducing the ac jet

Have you set the acc pump jet up correctly, this can cause it to go rich under light throttle

Whats your carb spec?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: boost on full T25
« on: 20:34, Tue 14 May 2013 »
I've ran 24psi on an old T25 I had on my old tungy 5, it helped it do a 12.4 on the qtr mile  :wink:

Does all depend on spec of the turbo but it should be able to do around that

You need to wire a few lives, cranking signal, fuel pump feed, rev gauge and one other (can't think off top of my head), I have a diagram here of which colour does what

Does your mate need a loom, I have a good one here

The picture of the loom on the floor, that's the only loom you need. You will use the original 5 one too to work the starter and alternator but that's easy to connect up

The red plug is what you adapt to the 5

If you find a slimmer oil filter it'll all fit in

You only need the engine loom, forget all the rest from the Volvo. It takes about 5 wires to connect up to get it running in the campus, only took 4 wires in my van  :D

You only need a gt sandwich plate if your going to use the gt cooler or external oil cooler, the Volvo engine has a cooler behind the oil filter already so can use that if you want

Wirings fairly easy although they did do 2 looms so have to see which one you got

In my old van I fitted a GTX/campus box and it held up well enough, still managed to push it off the clocks too so top speed isn't limited

Rad wise you will be ok with a gt one but I personally prefer fitting a slightly bigger one, my old van had no issues with cooling on the road or traffic

You are right about fuel pump wiring, the ecu sends a signal to turn it on, in the Volvo loom will be a fuel pump relay so its very easy to connect up (1 wire)

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: b18ft rev counter

i have a b18ft conversion in my 5 and have everything wired and working fine and cannot find the rev counter wire from the 5 dashboard according to the wiring diagram it is a 0.9 brown. is this correct? and any help locating it would help. thanks

On the original plug for the AEI unit it will have 3 wires, yellow, black and a light brown colour. The light brown one is the wire for the rev gauge, that's where you connect it to
