Picked up a new car.....questions
« on: 20:51, Tue 12 April 2011 »
I just picked up a 1990 black GT Turbo. It seems okay and looks pretty standard by a couple of bits I need to change.

Would any Renault 5 bonnet fit a GT Turbo?

I was told by the previous owner that the car is running standard boost. However when on full turbo the gauge was reading all the way around rather than 3/4 as standard boost should. Is there anyway of knowing how much boost it is running?

The oil pressure gauge sometimes stops working and reads nothing? Is this likely to be a dodgy sensor or wire?

How easy and what should I be paying to have the suspension put back to stock.?

Thanks for any help

see here for boost readings

standard boost is 10psi

oil pressure could be dirty connections on the sensor

cant help with the suspension i'm afraid
