will copy and paste my progress

since getting rid of the Williams 2 i got it in my head i wanted a clio v6 but after looking around most of them needed a cam belt change and there were another few things that i was not happy about on the cars plus i would of got myself in more debt. So i have always wanted a Renault 5 gtt after looking i found one with low mileage and been very looked after it had loads of history, mot's, it had a full respray and engine rebuild with loads of new bits including a turbo about 10 years ago but since then it only done 1100 miles and sat in the garage and only used now and then so everything still looks new its a phase 1 but has phase 2 kit and interior
The car has 75000 on the clock with old mots as proof its currently running at around 130bhp has a few upgrades new turbo maybe hybrid ? really pulls well no knocks nothing, done about 250 miles since i got it and i am over the moon with it right little go kart and feels as fast as my Williams was to.
really checked around and there no rust the floor underneath has been treated so very happy, always loved them and i am glad i got this now and it only cost me £2300 so happy days
just needs 4 new tyres as they have cracked so i met up with Dave ( TopCat) and just bought his turbines

here is a few pics

took the car down Marky Mark last week to check the car out and glad i did i was running to much boost so he turned the boost down and we talked upgrades before turning the boost back up and adjusting the fuel when i take it back to him soon
Was very happy with Marks service he knows he's stuff was a top bloke thanks mate

So since then i have been spending on things that need doing and some nice little upgrades The car at the moment is getting a cat 1 alarm fitted should get it back later.

Had a few problems with the wiring to the starter motor so sorted that out also had to bodge my oil return pipe as it had split so got a new one to fit

that's it for now going to see mark again on Sunday to up the boost and fueling
 
took the car to Marky again to get everything set up nicely the car was running very rich so carb had to come off and mark changed the main nozzle which had been drilled way to much in the past :( he put a new standard one and drilliled the nozzle which should of been done
The car is now running 16psi of boost and is fueling lovely and pulls well to big thanks to Mark for his great work also bought a phase 1 forge tank for my 5 as mark was selling it at a fraction of the price.

Changed the thermostat and bleed screws as they were leaking and causing me big issues on the m25 a few weeks ago with air in the system had to stop 4 times and try an bleed the air out with my sock over the header tank and blowing through the header tank with my bonnet flapping all over the place from the lorrys while on the hard shoulder was not happy to say the least
