Renault 5 GT Turbo / 1.4 campus to 1.4 gt brake help !
« on: 21:58, Sat 05 September 2009 »
Hi all how are we doing ?  I'm currently at the end of my conversion now only last few bits to do and one of them is the front brake calipers, the problem I have is I only have the 1.4 campus calipers which don't fit because my disks are too thick 22-23mm, could I  grind out the calipers to make them fit don't look much to it or would this not be wise ?

« on: 19:22, Fri 21 September 2007 »
Hi ive posted something like this b4 but now the time has come to put my mates 1.4 gt engine into his 1.0l campus. what i need to know do we have to change the complete sub frame and front end or will the 1 litre sub frame be strong enough eg bushes, suspension etc... also will we have to change the brake servo and will the gt engine loom just plug straight in. i know we have to change the complete rear axel but we wil be doing that at a later date, just front end for now. thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / ROTTING 5 !!!!
« on: 09:56, Tue 04 September 2007 »
How you all doing ? I might have a problem with rot on my five ,dont know how bad yet but if it is bad i was thinking of buying a decent campus and transfering all the bits over, the only thing im concerned about is the rear axel, i belive the campus is drums on the rear and the fives are discs, is this hard to swap with all the brake lines etc etc... Will this be worth doing as the campus shells are ment to be better aswell ( so i was told). there might only be sills to do on my gt along with the usual windscreen bubbles, but as i have no mot at the mo it might work out cheaper if i buy a campus with an mot. All answers will be great. Thanks matt

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Powder coating a block?
« on: 22:04, Wed 25 October 2006 »
Hello all, Im currently doing a rebuild and have been thinking about getting the block powder coated but when i spoke to a chap at the powder coating place he said that he has never been asked to do that before and that he dont think it will be suitible as powder coating goes really soft again at
170 celsius. Is powder coating suitible for a 5 gt block?

General Chat / Yes or No ? Need your views !!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: 15:05, Sun 28 May 2006 »
Hello to all members, just need a bit of feedback on the career move i'm thinking of taking. I'm from west london and there is no where that specialises in renault 5 turbos,eg like ktec or bb tuning. i'm from a mechanic backround and have done 6 years in the trade, i'm linked with alot of people who still work within the same trade (Audio technicians,car mechanics,sprayers,carpentors,welders) thats ust a few to mention.
My point is im thinking of opening my own business in west london that is dedicated to renault 5 turbos,but will work on a vast mogority of other renaults, offering every possible service i can. The business will start off small, but what business dont. My aims are hi.
Any feedback and opinions would be great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Renault 5 GT Turbo / LINERS
« on: 18:39, Mon 01 May 2006 »
This is a quick question about pison liners, I was stripping  one of my engines and found that 2 of the liners had play, too and from you when your standing looking at the block. is there any allowance for play in these engines. would this not matter when the cylinder head is bolted back on ?
