Hello fellow boost junkies.
« on: 00:05, Tue 14 December 2010 »
Hi, to all of you who share the same love as i do...R5 GT TURBO.
My name is Harry, a 37 year dutch chap.
Since a couple of years i am the proud owner of my phase 1(1985) GTT wich i also call my third child.
Completely restaured, cleaned the locks and painted it in Renault Orage blue
from the inside aswell as the outside the car is a true beauty no cracks, dents holes or what so ever.
Under the bonnet i spoiled myself with a T25 turbo, a 2.5 inchstainless onepiece elbow-downpipe (bigjim racing), SFS hoses, aluminium radiator and group A carb.
Driving @ 14 psi (1 bar) and even i could get more boost it goes like hell.
Reason i hooked up with the U.K. R5 guys i because here in Holland there's a small group of R5 lovers but they are not my kind of guys...
Anyway, The UK is THE place to be if your an R5 boost junkie are cause, it's so cheap over there.
Added some pics of my pride and joy!

The inside...perfect seats without any damage.
The car was bought new in 1985 by the previous owner, wich owned it for 20 years.
no rust, dents or any other bad points...
Full engine rebuilt planned for next winter...

My brand new T25 turbo wich i bought on Ebay in canada.
Was actually real cheap!! around 350,- GBP including shipping it and it is worth every penny!
Drives real smooth. bBoost pressure is now @16 pSI (1.1 BAR) and turbo revs up around 3700 rpm. Goes like hell!

I guess you would have to join the RTOC, except if somebody has one lying around. I have not received mine yet, even though I have been a member for half a year. It does not matter, though :wink:

Your 5 looks mint! And what a nice turbo. How can it be so low priced?? Insane!
Welcome :D
