Renault 5 GT Turbo / Too cool?
« on: 22:15, Mon 24 January 2011 »
I am thinking that my wee clio is running too cool, it has an alloy rad  and also a seperate oil cooler
with a thermostat.

 It seems to only go to half way on the gauge and when I drive it hard it gets cooler.
has anyone else experienced this when using a similar setup?

I am a bit concerned as running a car cool can be just as bad as to  hot.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Turbo Rebuild
« on: 22:03, Mon 24 January 2011 »
I just rebuilt my t2 with a 360 thrust bearing and new shaft bearings etc.
I used some of the missus nail polish to mark the positions of the turbine wheel in relation to the compressor wheel, and lined it all back up on reassembly, all thats needed is very small circlip pliers
and to be careful when removing the turbine housing as you can damage the wheel.  no problems
yet at 18 psi, but time will tell.  :D

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: cracked turbo housing

I rebuilt the turbo last night, then fitted it today.

smoked like mad, but after a run all is well again so I am pretty happy with it.

I am still interested in getting a better turbine housing if you have one thats great. thanks

thanks mate, what about a complete turbo, do you have any thing that will give more power?

Hi Mark

the turbo is just a standard t2,  the cracks are pretty wide & there is 3 of them. do you have anything suitable?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / cracked turbo housing

Evening guys  :D

my clio turbo developed a smoking habit the other day, the turbo is very old but still performed well.
I decided to rebuild it, anyway I have removed the turbo and discovered the turbo exhaust housing is cracked badly where the waste gate flapper sits. I think it needs a new housing, has anyone seen this before?
also can anybody supply me with a replacement?
cheers Jonny.

everything is new, plugs, leads, cap, rotor arm, rebuilt carb, I am pretty sure that the problem is fuel related so I will check the fuel pressure tomorrow, thanks for the input mate.

you could use a hoover with a suitable size hose attached to suck out the metal.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / clio gt turbo

Got a problem with my clio gt turbo, when accelerating if I floor the throttle the car seems to be suffering from fuel starvation, if I back off the throttle then let the speed of the engine build up then it goes past the hesitation and continues to rev higher, sometimes the fault does not occur and the engine goes well. also if I give it some choke the problem seems to go away, The carb has had a rebuild kit, and the jets are standard, standard boost. the fuel pump is from the clio 1.2 but I dont think thats the problem as its designed for fuel injection so should be ok for a gt turbo. any help would be great  :D

« on: 16:37, Fri 20 November 2009 »
i am in the process of connecting the fuel pressure regulator on my clio gtt
top pipe on regulator- carb inlet
bottom pipe- fuel feed from pump
small pipe on regulator- carb feed
other one- fuel return to tank

is this correct?
thanks in advance  :D
