Renault 5 GT Turbo / Help on my project R5, soon to be turbo!
« on: 01:02, Tue 30 May 2006 »
Hey Everyone,
Ok Ive finished my project R5 for the last month or so, The only bad thing about the car is; its a non-turbo.
I think if I got a Turbo engine conversion it would be set.
Ive been ringing and emailing like crazy lately; CBG Motorsport, Europarts Motorsport, 5 Alive....etc
Im just wondering where would be the best place to pick a mint engine up? Ive been talking to Bob @ CBG Motorsport and he has the following;
I have one that I was just about to fit to a very original car but I have now sold the car and the engine is available.  The engine was removed from a car showing 72K and has been running within the last 4-6 weeks.  It has gearbox still fitted which was in good working order, stage 2 turbo still fitted with no play in the impeller (and no smoke) obviously.  Overall very good engine.  I think it would be best to replace the water pump and starter motor but I have new and second hand units available.
Also saw a few on Ebay but its dodgy as hell buying one from there.
I live in Southern Ireland which means I can't go around looking at engines day-in, day-out till I find a mint one.
Is there any chance ye guys, will give me some advice where to pick up a mint engine and which companies are trust-worthy? The second I have a mint one lined up, Me & My uncle whose a mechanic will be going over that day to check it out and hopefully purchase.
Please everyone, Im asking for ye're advice here, I seriously want a mint Turbo 5 to present to the streets of Ireland :twisted:
Thanks everyone,

Your cars / Looks sweet

General Chat / Mean eyebrows on an R5?
« on: 17:19, Sun 17 July 2005 »
Hey guy's n' gals,
I am currently modifying my 1996 non-turbo renault 5 and am in a spot of bother!
I have seen alot of R5's on magazines with an evil eyebrow look on the bonnet of the car, I relly wanna do this but don't know how.
When i looked at the car last night i noticed that i can't just spot weld and fill a pieces to either side ot the bonnet cause the lights are in the way.
Does anyone know how this is done as it looks spectacular and i really really want it done to my car.
Thanks alot everyone,
Conor mulcahy.
