Welcome to my project thread of Nicole aka C16 GTT this is my 3rd 5 and my last.

she is a tidy 5 with tlc needed to the body work but the engine is sound and goes well. My plan for her is to tidy the body up and go for the infamous 200 bhp figure so will need a full T25 with the spec of the car.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Leak down test
« on: 19:00, Thu 02 April 2009 »
A mate needs to do a leak down test, whats the best/easiest way to do this ?

Basically he's bought a new turbo (big one) & it leaks slightly from the rear. Spoke to the turbo company & they say it could be the pressure in the sump not allowing the oil to return to the sump fast enough (gravity fed apparently, didn't know that, or due to lack of back pressure) He has suggested a leak down test 1st rather than ripping the turbo off & sending it back (although they have offered to pick it up & return it FOC if there is no prob with breathers/sump pressurising, or it can just be sent back & checked)
I think i've explained it correctly, lol, does this sound plausable ??
BTW, I have no reason to think the guy has been ripped off with a dodgy turbo as alot of other people have bought turbo's from this company with no problems inc. myself.

Wrote buy steve about my car. Help please :?:
