Campus to GTT
« on: 11:31, Fri 01 May 2009 »
I was just thinkin that they stopped making R5 turbos but kept making campus' for ages, has anyone ever got a campus, gutted it and put it back together as a turbo,
Cus then they would have a newer shell,
Is it even possible?

It is possible. And there has been lots of discussion about it.

I thought about doing it with my old 5 GTS. However, I just went a brought a 5 Turbo.

If you want to have a project, this would be a good one.  However it could be a money pit.

I could see people saying, if your going to do that then why not do it to an actual gtt and restore it

I've heard campus shells fare better corrosion wise. Maybe it's the lack of bodykit for water to get trapped in?

It would be good to see, I'm not shooting it down.

I wanted to do it to my old 5, but I just didn't have the time.

i rekon if u were to change a campus to a turbo it should be left to look like a campus - less hassal from plod and dick heads, and more fun at traffic lights
My cars only as fast as the people pushing it

chillin... chillin....... chillin.........boooOOOOOOST
