Yes it is possible to replace the big end shells only, to do the main's crank needs to come out, big ends just need the conrod caps undone and pistons pushed up a tad to enable new ones to go in.

Were you located? maybe someone local could assist

You will need the matching receiver for the roof console and the key fob sensor, earlier clio's also used the same system and some other renaults aswell so a few more options for you. 

Ref hot wiring it's a 5 honestly only a couple of wire's lol,  if you have igniiton barrel problems best just to get hold of a descent one from any 5 be it gtt or base model with key

Gents, great info in this thread! I have picked up a bit from DG and Scoff during the build on the RTOC, but have you got anymore info and/or pictures on the driveshafts?

I may have some pic's (might take me some time to find) as when I done my conversion rwd 5 vag I done what scoff original done on his vag conversion which basically cut the shafts to length and then lath the gtt shaft down to slide in the VAG shafts, oh yeah and castle joined them welding together

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Clio 172 engine In gtt
« on: 18:15, Sat 23 November 2013 »
Thanks for reply I'm looking at running rebuilt standard engine on 1.9 mm gasket. Turbo low boost approx 245 bhp what couch should I get could I just leave the standard one I only do a few miles.
I may need help am just getting started what's it like in the 5 with this conversation
Cheers bud

You can run the std 172 engine on turbo fine but with the higher comp you will be limited to say 7psi of max boost this will still be quick if you want more boost the compression really needs to come down,

Ref what the conversion is like I done the n/a conversion and pulled it out after 100miles and went back to a tuned C1J as I missed the turbo LOL  I ended up doing a year or so later an F7p foully forged turbo conversion and that was rapid.

Hi guys any help appreciated I'm gonna put a 172 2.0 in my 5 what clutch is needed to mate 2.0 on the gtt box I have read the advice on the how to page but don't understand
Also thanks lads

Assume you may have sorted this now seeing as post was september but Ill answer anyway :-)

Std clio 172 clutch is fine if your sticking with N/A conversion if your going turbo then I recomend a paddle setup fitted,in order for the box to mate up fine you will need to remove both the front and rear gearbox locating lugs to the block otherwise you will be in trouble.

If you need anymore help doing this let me know as I done this conversion a few years back so know a bit about it :-)
