hey new kid on the block..advice and my polo g40
« on: 23:25, Thu 14 May 2009 »
hey everyone...lovin the site seems a fountain of knowledge is present here...

anyways im a polo g40 owner and absolutly love it, use it as my daily and wouldnt sell it for anything but i may have access to a phase 2 r5t for 200 quid..and im really keen as ive always had muchos respect for them..


now the car is solid which is the main thing but it does need a box, a top hose and a general tidy up..apparently it has graphs to prove it had 170bhp at some point but how true this is i have no idea, and id want it back to stock anyways as i prefer old cars like this to be stock with a few tweeks cosmetic really (coilovers etc).

what sort of modifications may it have to be around 170 bhp?  that sounds a lot on the standard 115 or 120?  

how easy can i source a box?

also the loom has seen some butchery..what sort of job is swapping the loom?  is the engine loom seprable from the dash one etc?

finally..renault turbines?  i know they are cliche but i want a stock ish r5 with nice lowerage and black turbines...how much should i expect to pay for a set?

anyways..just as an intro heres a few pics of my g40...its not often this clean as you may appreciate keeping a white car clean as a daily is a pig..

its fairly standard running 130bhp..goes quite well though and i always buy genuine vw bits where possible..ive done just over 50k in it and loooove it... hoping the r5 can deliver as much fun..

hope you like

love the g40. i`d snap the 5 up at that price... its worth more in parts alone!!

i`d forego the turbines and slap some ronal turbos on the 5, then you can swap them over to the g40 :D

well thanks to those that have had the decency to reply in a welcoming way.  i didnt manage to get hold of that particular renault 5 which am a bit gutted about to be honest but no worries im gonna keep my eyes peeled...i get a pay out from work soon so ill have a bit money to put towards a good one..im hoping i should get something half decent for around 1500-2000, something which needs a little tlc so ive got something to do...ill knock about on this forum a bit just to build a bit of knowledge up...

Bummer, shame you didn't get the cheap one. That sounded like a nice project.
But for 1,500 - 2,000 you could pick up something as tastey as your G40  :D

Welcome to the site too buddy  8)
