Hope it is ok to join with an Extra van rather than a GTT :)
Just bought the Extra and starting work on it straight away, needs a bit of welding and some mechanics but nothing that phases me :)
Will be asking questions and will post up pics if thats ok :)
afraid this site has been taken over by spammers. The site owner went awol & us mods gave up clearing the constant spam years ago mate.. turbo renault or rtoc would be the places to join..

RTOC have quite a few events through the year. You aren't far from the monthly Surrey meet at Kingswood. I will try to post up the events & details if you don't want to join RTOC, it's 15 per year & you get national day, pod days, RR days, local meets & tons of knowledge :)

Very nice car BTW.

also do you know if i could use the small part of loom on the car end from a megane?
Not sure on either, you need a phase 1 ecu though as the phase 2 are immobilised.

Take a look in here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9345 to get your head round some of the wiring. But that was from GT Turbo to F7P...
You need the engine loom & a section of the car loom with the plug to make it easier, then just buzz out which wires you will use.

If you can find one then yes it's a pretty good conversion, personally I think the GT Turbo one is easier to get power from :)

Just get the running gear from the GT Turbo then.

How much knowledge of mechanics have you got? I ask as the easiest is prob drop the GTT running gear in & away you go, you might need the clocks as well as the campus will be cable no doubt. Clio 16v isn't to bad but wiring is hard if you can't get your head round that sort of thing, nor is the volvo turbo engine swap. Then you are onto things like the clio 172/182 or 20v VW/Audi sort of stuff which is alot harder to sort. The VW stuff involves cutting subframes & fabricating engine mounts etc.

Welcome to the site.
Best place for oils etc is motor factors really, GSF or the likes.
Not to sure why it won't rev, sounds carb or poss plug/lead related ??
Do a service on her & see how she is after that.  :wink:

Found this forum and it looks very informative. Have just aquired a well looked after Renault 5 GT Turbo. Want to look after it and pull on the experiences of the forum members for help and advice if required. I will also help where I can. :)

You can post here the general location you live so maybe you can arrange meets, or convoys to events.
