You up and running yet Glen :lol:


She's all ready to start but been doing the silly bits got new down pipe off steve yesterday, cant make my mind up about the turbo, as i want to get it set up on the rolling road finished and set up on a new turbo. But i could if i want start it now with the T25 on there but i dont want to have to start taking it apart agian to fit a new turbo two weeks down the line. Ive done it probley so far without cutting corners, im not going to be able to use it straight away as i need to get it M.O.Ted

Glenn, buy yourself a decent wideband kit matey like the AEM uego, Zeitronix kit, and then you can set it up yourself with some fettling to the carb jets it's not as hard as it seems lol:

Rolling road's nowadays the peeps have no idea how to setup a carb'd car only good really for the power runs to see what doing on the 5's.  They like modern cars they can plug there computer's straight into and see everything.

I would start your car with that knackered T2 matey, just to run it and then drop the oil and oput decent stuff in as you don't want to knacker a new turbo if things are wrong.

What size turbo are you looking to get??


I have wacked the t25 on there just got to sort the vacum pipes out as i cant remember how they went its all ready to run  :) what your movements after work today ?

Glen, looking good matey, as you say that Tomcat prob won't last long at the boost you will be wanting to run.


In need of a VNT i think but i will use the T25 just to get it up and running to take for M.O.T then park it back in the garage and rebuild the front end, lower arms, bushes, then do the same to the rear.  Got my entry forms for the rallys this year about time a Renault sat proud next to some old classic cars like the ford escort mk1, last one i went to last year there was mk3 escort, capri, vauxhall astra gte mk1 the only renault i saw was a 7 1/2 ton fair lorry lol but i did see a Renault 9 turbo at one of them last year, its good lough you and steve should come to one in your 5's

Its been a while but towed the 5 out of the barn where its sat since i had all the new front end put on in August. Got it back to mine with a little help from steve and work has started to put the 5 back together, all the metal work has been treated and painted with a plastic type paint to seal the bare meatal to prevent rust, then sprayed in grey primer ready for top coats but the weather has slowed me up with drying times for the paint, i got heaters on and all sorts in the garage on the go.  Here's some pics so far.

just a quick up date of what i've been up to. After finding a small amount of rust in the front panel, i decided to strip some panels to see if there was anymore but luckly its quite solid and clean underneath.  I manged to track down a front panel for 35 and a new wing for 30 which is far better then the prices Renault quoted will me ! should have them by Thursday, then fit my engine and then get all the panels fitted, and then get all the bits to finish my car off for  1500 i was going to take it slowly but want it done for August if i can.

Feck me doesn't look Good I would personally just get another engine that is known to be good or rebuild one from scratch so you know what it is like when you put it together.
I have a mate with a good running complete standard engine, he also has another engine which needs a liner replaced this is just a bottom it has also been l&balanced


Found a new engine or shall i say steve did full rebuilt new liners / pistons piper 285 cam, new shells basically a fully rebuilt engine off someone on the RTOC website its in a clio but has never driven any where got it for 500 which is ok. so she will be backon the road soon. :D

Things not looking to good for the old 5. Steve came round yesterday to have a look at my bottom end to see what cause of action i should take next due to the state of the engine as i might have needed more than just a crank, but i let you work that out by looking at the damage in the pics.

Do you think it can be re used  :lol:









Swarf was the cause of my turbo problems with oil seals even after changing oil and filter everytime, and that swarf had travelled through all the oil jurnals in the engine, on a good note i got 4.00 from the scrap man for my block crank and cam  :lol:
