General Chat / a couple of questions
« on: 17:50, Fri 14 August 2009 »
right sorry for all the posts just bought my 1st 5 turbo so still learning lol, one question i have is what mpg are you getting out of your 5 turbo? mine is standard bar 2.5" magnex exhaust, forge front mount and air filter and it seems to vary between 25-30mpg driving steady which isnt brilliant is it?? also i am wanting to get a bit more power. what is the best way to go about it? was considering t25-t28 turbo and piper185 cam on top of the mods i have plus a bleed valve to up the boost, what power would i be looking to see from those mods?? the headgasket has been uprated to a steel one so hopefully that wont be much bother for a few hundred miles, thanks for any info guys

Renault 5 GT Turbo / how do i fit a oil temp and pressure gauge?
« on: 14:24, Thu 13 August 2009 »
hi people just wanting to no how i go about fitting the above as the standard oil pressure gauge has lost the will so was going to add new gauges in a pod somewhere but  not sure where to put the senders as i put them on a redtop corsa and did it with  a sandwich plate on the oil filter but doesnt look like i can do it this way on the 5 due to the sandwich plate for the oil cooler, cheers for any help
