Renault 5 GT Turbo / 5 gt advice needed
« on: 11:34, Mon 20 April 2009 »
i have a 89 gt turb with standard t2 standard cam, k-tec in car boost set up at ruffly 16psi and ktec double sized intercooler, stainless exhaust.

now heres the advice needed. i recentl;y went to ists @donny and went around track, which was hilariously good fun in the butty box. however the car did set fire to a heatshield after my laps and the battery failed on the way home which led to the usual banter from the lads who i was with who drive all jap cars. so being pissed up the following nite i made a bet id have the 5 running 14sec 1/4 miles at pod in august the next time we all get 2 gether 4 a p155 up.

so options.............

i know i need to upgrade clutch also im gna get sum slicks for good grip and strip interior so its lighter but  what you recon i do next guys?

1) tune engine i.e cam, head work
2) uprate turbo
