Right this is what i think to the list of bits, some of these are not needed at al as standard stuff will do the job just fine and get around the 200bhp mark with ease.

Bigger turbo - something like a T25will do the job nicely for road
Uprated intercooler - yes as decussed in thread
Uprated Cam and vernier pulley - not totally needed but could go for piper 270 for road cam
Uprated carb- standrad carb rejetted will do, do notget a grp A carb
Tubular manifold - no real need for it, standard is fine
Full Samco set of hoses - yes if your originals are old a damaged
Group N clutch and lightweight flywheel - yes lightened flywheel and a Volvo 480 clutch.

Also i will say make sure all the service items are in good condition, engine runs fine and fuel system is good up up to scratch also.
Car will need to be correctly set up after too.

Ive been looking at the turbo technics stage 2 T2/T25 from CGB, would you say this is a good turbo to go for or would u suggest something different

and why not a group a carb why is this a big no no

Thats cool mate, we all started somewhere.  :wink:

Yeah there aren't too many people left doing these cars, thats why i started doing them as people were running out of options. Its not too hard to do if you need help i can guide you or give you some advice in doing your own front mount.

180bhp isn't hard to get, not many bits needed either. For that power a GT Tuning cooler will be fine, anymore than 200bhp i tend to look at better cooling for the inlet charge as you tend to run a bit of boost to get there so need to keep the inlet charge cool.

Ok i see well if thats the case i think i would rather go straight for the intercooler that can take 200+ bhp because im looking to reach that in the end anyway.

I already have the KTR 2.5 straight through exhaust (which i don't really like the sound of so might be replacing) and downpipe. Powertech Induction Kit and Dump Valve. And was thinking about getting the following parts - bare in mind these parts need to be for 200+bhp.
Bigger turbo
Uprated intercooler
Uprated Cam and vernier pulley
Uprated carb
Tubular manifold
Full Samco set of hoses
Group N clutch and lightweight flywheel

with the additions of these part roughly what sort of bhp would this get me?

Forge front mount isn't all that mate, better off buying a universal front mount and doing the pipework yourself as it'll work out cheaper and work better too. Its not bad to do, i've done so many now lost count! Lol!

It really depends on what sort of turbo and boost pressure you want to use on the car, this will determine what sort of intercooler to go for,

ha im no mechanic at the mo, but have decided i want to become one and am looking to learn. I live in the Jersey Channel Islands and there are no specialist over here to help out.

Im looking to build a 5 with 180bhp and once ive reached that maybe try push is to around the 200bhp mark

yea i was looking at the Forge front mount cooler which doesn't require you to change the standard bumper to keep the original look.

performance wise is the forge cooler better than the GT Tuning twin core?

General Chat / Prices - K-Tec vs GTTuning vs CGB
« on: 02:20, Sat 19 June 2010 »
Ive been comparing prices between K-Tec GTTuning and CGB and the K-Tec and GTTuning prices are more than the CGB prices. For example a twin core intercooler at CGB is 110 and at K-Tec and GTTuning are 300+, same for many other parts.

Is this because there is a difference in quality or just that CGB are brilliant? :?

Thanks for the info
im guessing the prices there are going to be rather similar to over here
with a 2 minor door dings straightened out and a slight bit of rust on the front of the windscreen just above the bonnet needing sorting i have been quoted 2200, + thats a guaranteed good job.

but as you said you get what you pay for

« on: 20:49, Wed 16 June 2010 »
Can anyone tell me how much a full re-spray in raider blue for a R5 should usually cost? i live in the Channel Islands Jersey and they are quite expensive, so im considering getting the boat over and getting it done.

Your cars / My R5 GTT Raider
« on: 00:13, Tue 15 June 2010 »
Heres my R5 GTT Raider,

The car is standard apart from a KTR 2.5 straight through exhaust and downpipe. Powertech Induction Kit and Dump Valve.

Im putting the car in storage for a year because i am going away traveling, but when i return I plan on putting some money into it im thinking of getting:
Bigger turbo
Twin core intercooler
Cam and vernier pulley
Group a carb
Tubular manifold
Full Samco set of hoses
Group N clutch and lightweight flywheel
Clear Lights side repeaters/ fogs/ indicators

Any advise on the best way to go about this such as best companies, best parts and also any other performance parts worth fitting whilst doing the above to save costs on labour is much appreciated.
