Your cars / New Car not a Renault
« on: 12:01, Mon 05 August 2013 »
Well I have had enough of R5 GTT's been playing with them for the last 16 years just had enough of them now lack of time due to the family, work and age it's time I moved on. So the blue Rwd R5 has now gone to a new home.  Unfortunatly I basically gave the car away :-(.  I have gone and bought myself a Jap car :-) 

374bhp a few mods but to be honest it's quick enough for me

I think the calipers for the GTT are different as vented disc's if you can replace the entire hub from a GTT with GTT caliper and disc you may even be able to pick up cheaper clio valver setup which have better / bigger wheel bearing's in.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Renault 5 GT-T 172 Swap
« on: 09:08, Thu 01 August 2013 »

My friends has a Renault 5 gtt with clio 172 engine swap NA (F4r 730) and what i want to ask is what kind of fuel pump he can use

For N/A conversion any external efi pump from a similar sized engine car, if he's going turbo Bosch 044 or Walbro 255lph. 

If it was me I would look for a standard sapphire cosworth pump.

If your using the std r5 gtt metal mount you need to retain the top hole and the lower 2 holes get drilled, it's best getting the engine in the bay on crane and aliging up marking mount and then drilling the 2 extra holes.

Sorry no pic's of mount it's easy to do

Sorry dude wasn't saying what you said was crap I meant the guy that sold you the grp a.

I think your next investment needs to be the wideband kit before you do anything else to the 5.

To be honest you would be better sitcking a standard venturi carb on your 5.  I take it you have a wideband afr kit with gauge?? if so it's a case of playing with the air corrector and 2nd stage jet to fuel for more boost.

I dont have the afr kit mate but i still have 2 standard carbs sitting there and the group a carb, the guy that had the car before me said with group a carb it was pushing out an extra 30bhp but im not really all that clued up too well about engines lol

All engine's are different the carb needs to be fine tuned to your engine and the boost level your engine is capable of.  I would go back to a std carb and buy a wideband kit before you turn the boost up above standard.  What turbo are you running? also what cam is in your engine? any other mods to your car? intercooler type?  

For example a std carb from renault factory gave 120bhp with a few jet adjustment's on a std carb my last c1j setup was around the 230bhp area.  

Saying the carb gave an extra 30bhp is just crap.  My advice is buy a decent wideband kit before you doing anything else for example the AEM Uego kit as sold by

front pads I would recomend DS2500, with some standard disc's or crossed disc's, rears stick with standard setup and pad's

the motor as diferences, no sure about the frame itself.
i'll try to compare the two.
meanwhile, if anyone has any information on the subject, i t will be most apreciated.


Clio window motor and mech are totally different

When you say dying you mean slow? if so remove the regulator / mech and clean and lube it up with some decen grease.  The motors themselves do tend to fail but most renault from the same year had the same window motor's or contact Mike @ GTTurbo spares whom can supply decent condition ones
