Renault 5 GT Turbo / Who has the best priced R5 GTT radiators?
« on: 09:28, Mon 14 September 2009 »
Okey Dokey....after much trying to get something similar here in this country with no success i am now going to buy one from the UK.
Probably will stick to the Valeo item......anybody got any good prices lately.
I have checked with a couple of sites and they all seem to be 132-139 quid.

  Any better prices around ??

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Maybe new Radiator time question
« on: 06:38, Fri 11 September 2009 »
It looks like i have to renew the rad. A new one from the UK will cost me a load in freight so my first plan is to get one here by simply recoring.
Has anybody simply recored one before and is it possible?
If i have to replace the plastic end tanks as well...are they common with any other Ren.
Any tips appreciated.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Slowest R5 in the world- thats mine.
« on: 12:57, Thu 06 August 2009 »
What gives here ?   Was looking forward to driving this little Mother for the first time however was shocked to get such poor performance from it.
Similar to a tractor i'd say.... :shock:
This car carb [how can one tell if thats not bulls*** ?]
                    4" straight thru pipe
                     Double capacity alloy intercooler.
                      T2-T25 Hybrid turbo
It couldnt pull the skin off my Mothers custard so i checked the boost level and she was only running at 5 PSI.....why would that be ?   Why would anybody REDUCE the boost to that level.
Any ideas chasps?
Maybe it was done for a reason or to hide something ?
I'm all ears !!!

Done by trans-4-mations....anybody know anything about them as well?

Anybody know what other cars use the same size hinge pins as the R5.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Why is it so?? perc fan missing
« on: 12:20, Wed 10 June 2009 »
Just checking over the new baby and noticed that the innards of the perc fan section have nothing in it. no fan etc.
The car has a group A carb.  
I thought the perc fan served the purpose of cooling the fuel at the base of the why has this car got nothing like that????

Hi Peoples,
Just joined this great site today. Have owned the R5 for just one week now and havent a clue on part numbers for the following............
I plan to do a major service on her and change alot of consumables.
As i am in Australia parts for this car do not exist so i will need to order from the UK but dont want to get them all this way to find they are incorrect so going by the part numbers would be safer maybe.

Parts i am requiring are as follows................
1.  fuel filter [is this one used on any other later Renault? ]
2.  Dizzy cap and rotor [ also is this same part on any other Ren? ]
3. Thermostat   [same as above ...Clio 16v? ]
4.  oil filter   [ are these from any other Ren? ]
5. door pins

Hopefully with the part numbers  can try to order thru Renault dealer here however if that fails it will be via mail from UK. Any help appreciated !!   cheers
