General Chat / 3000 Budget
« on: 15:49, Wed 27 April 2011 »
Well i havent been on here for a while as i sold my 5 & bought a pulsar gtiR. Thing is i just cant get the 5 bug out of my system so thinking of selling the pulsar & returning to 5 ownership  :roll:  anyway as we all know the annoying thing with 5s is the headgasket probs.
so my plan is to buy a 5 for around 500 that is a tidy 1 but has a knackerd engine or somthing. as i want to build the engine myself (low comp & forged) as im sick to the back teath of blowing headgaskets even after having fueling set up. ive owned 3 reni 5s now n& done the h/g's on 2 of them. so here is my plan to provent h/g failier.

low comp forged pistons.
forged rods.
steel liners.
group a h/g & high tensile head bolts.
head work.
285 cam & pully.
copper core rad.
in car fan swith.
fueling set for 20 psi

most of it if i can find it will be second hand as we all know none of us want to pay k-tec's prices for new parts.
ill spend 500 on a good clean car with a blown engine as ill obviusly be rebuilding it. so that leaves me 2500 for build!
what do you guys think? & will it be more reliable on the h/g side? will i do it??  :?

Your cars / well the 5s gone :( Pulsar has come :)
