« on: 12:52, Thu 25 February 2010 »
Anyone fitted this and took some pictures?

What to connect/disconnect?

Is there another place usable instead of the clock, which I would like to keep in place..?

Thanks!

thanks  :D

To bad I hade to cancel my old licence plate that was on it.

VYV kinda means Five in dutch, so that was pretty cool to have...
That would definately be cool!

We still got it on my wife's bmw 118.  :mrgreen:   So I guess I could swap it from time to time.

Back in the days (1995) I used to study this site : http://r5gtturbo.ckiweb.org/gttintro.htm

It was nearly the only thing available "online" in those days.

Was pretty good on info tho..

ok here goes my story...

15 years ago I had a R5 GTT (faseI) from 1986, man I loved that car.  Blew the engine up on the motorway because some shop did a very poor repair on the head gasket (they hammered the piston sleeves down to straighten them out apperantly) so I had to sell the puppy, I still was a student...

In 2009 for 'nostalgic' reasons I bought a faseII 1988 red GTT that was sitting at a body shop next to my brother in law.  After passing it on regular basis I deceided it had to be mine!

I just love them in red, great color on the GTT...

The looks of it just bring back the good 'ol days when I was running my GTT versus peugeot 205 gti's and golf II 16V's... (man those were good days)

Some pics :






I've put on new tires and replaced a sensor, but a lot needs to be done..

Worst thing is the box that pops out of 4th gear sometimes..  :?

I want it as stock a possible on the outside (ok the exhaust can stay), to me it's a 'classic'..

Greetings,
Sacha

that's what I feared...

So I'm looking for antoher gearbox here in Belgium or Holland.

What would also work straight on? volvo 480 1.7t box?  Clio 16V box?

Speedo does have to work...

Thanks

Hi all,

Question : when driving my gtt I always have the feeling when shifting the car doesn't properly go in it's gears.

A lot of times she actually pops out of 4th gear too.

Usually when removing my foot from the gas pedal in 4th there's a little "singing" noice and the shifter pops out.  Not really happing in any other gears though, but it doesn't feel snug.

Any suggestions?  Thinks it's the synchro?

Thanks
