Renault 5 GT Turbo / turbo oil return
« on: 21:15, Wed 17 February 2010 »
im hoping that someone can gelp me with this,

i know there is two different sized pipes from the turbo to the sump, but which is which?
my old engine had the bigger bore pipe on the sump and the new one has a small bore pipe.

i know i now need to find a new oil return pipe as the old sump is rotten, but do i need a ph1 or ph2 pipe? also are there different sized silicone hoses for each end?

hope it makes sense?

many thanks

Renault 5 GT Turbo / full engine rebuild
« on: 23:14, Thu 02 April 2009 »
im after abit of advice really as im new to old renaults as im used to working on mazdas.

when rebuilding a C1J engine  which parts will i need?

i have had the bottem end balanced, flywheel lightened, new pistons and liners etc, rebuilt the head. i also have a piper cam and vernier, uprated headgasket and bolts, new shells, thrust washers etc

i was thinking about getting a new water pump? anything else that needs changing? timing chain and sproket? con-rod bolts? main journal bolts?

i only ask as ive build many vauxhall c20xe engines and you have to change all the crank bolts and ive always fitted arp bolts when renewing them.

anything else that ive missed out would be great!

many thanks in advance

Renault 5 GT Turbo / actuator pre-load
« on: 23:43, Sat 21 February 2009 »
hi, can anyone help me out here,

i have garrett VNT on my gt. i have adjusted the vaines so that the boost comes in nice and early which is good, but it keeps spiking onthe boost, and fluctuates also under full boost.

would this be to do with the pre-load on the actuator?
any quick tips on setting the preload?

cheers

james
