Renault 5 1.7 GTT
« on: 20:26, Fri 28 May 2010 »
Hello all,

I'm David, from Malta, and I'm new to this forum. Been owning my precious 5 for these past 3 years, thought I'd share some photos with you. Just finished with a volvo engine conversion. Very happy with the results. Anyways, time for the photos to do the talkin, hope you all like  :)

Cheers  :D

Not sure on what sort of power it is producing but I'd roughly say 170 - 180 ponies

Volvo 480 turbo engine (B18FT)
high pressure fuel pump
fuel pressure regulator set at 3.2 bar
14psi boost pressure
FMIC
Richmod ECU (moded stock ECU by a volvo 480 forum user .. veryyyyy effective !!)

thats about it ..

yeppp I also think you need to put up some shots of your 5 !!!!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

What sort of mods did you do to it ? heard that a cam from a n/a 1.7 ltr F series engine would work better than stock one. Do you know anything about this ???

I have done a lot of mods to the head and cam so the engine will breath alot better, thats its main problem area with this engine. I've also got a custom inlet and exhaust manifold and T04E turbo with 38mm external wastegate wit 3" exhaust, standalone ecu and lots of other bits.
Its being built for drag racing and to see exactly how much power can be extracted from the B18FT.  :D

Yes the cam from a 1.7 ES model workes better, not brilliant but much better then the standard piece of rubbish the engine comes with.
