Just booted it on 15psi

Been running my 5 on about 8psi and it wasnt slow, just turned it up to 15 and my god its fast. When its on boost I just cant stop grinning!

Its so low as well that it feels a lot faster than it probably is.

at that presure is the highest you should have on a T2... you should as well check the carb mix.

its too much explosive to some times get in control of the little "beast". :)

are the intercooler hoses holding up?

it can run 15 with standard turbo etc, but not all the time, just for showin off :D

The intercooler is flowed and strapped so its fine - i normally run it on about 8psi.....for now

Make sure the fuelling is ok at that boost...

Not a good idea to constantly wind it up and down, especially from 8 to 15psi mate, theres a big difference between the two. The carb will want re-jetting to run that sort of boost.

They do go like stink when you wind them up though!!! :D

To be honest thats the first time ive turned the boost up since i got it.

Dont make it be the last...



Most people just get R5s and crank up the boost, without doing anything else, then wonder why they have problems!

Dont make that mistake.

My mate has just put a T3 turbo and "special spec" cam in his (done by a lad whos 5 is in this months Redline with 231bhp!!!!!) except the bloody carb is playing up and the car aint starting, bugger!!!!!!
 


I managed to get a reading of 21 out of mine, but then my plugs bit the bullet. Now obvioulsly this is not recommended for any one lol. I run now, normally, around 17 psi and i think its just mad. Spinning the wheels in 3rd is funny, specially in a clio with 1.4 RT badges down the side!!! lol
 


When I had an Uno Turbo...after having stuff done, I cranked it up to 18psi...was mental.

Mitsi, I understand the smiling ;)

Someone told me it melts the pistons? is that whats happened there? Apparently the geezer who has the 231bhp 5 in redline will come to ur house and sort ur car out. Might get him to rejet the carb.
 


My mate has an uno turbo which looks a right pile of sh*te but it such a good buzz driving it. Pissed a guy off with a 225 TT who didnt have a clue how to drive properly and thought he was the b****cks. There is GTT that knocks around near where I live which is apparently running at 250 brake?? Has this mental looking flip paint and a dimma body kit. Some of the lads around the Sheffield/Chesterfield area may have seen it out and about.

Yup... piston no4 has melted!!! :eek:

You need to swap a couple of jets in the carb and set the mixture up correctly if you wanna run high boost safeley!

I am thinking of Buying a Renault 5 as well as my clio.

After driving Dans from Max Power when we done the install on it. Loved it, quite a rapid little mover. Another mate had one cranked up to around 20-23PSi (I think) was about 200-220BHP! That sound rite??

That surprised everyone. hehe the looks on some peoples faces. Sounded the bollies as well.

Anyone selling a ren 5 here?? PM ME!!!!
 


This will make you boys cry, but when i had my punto gt, it used to run 15 psi standard and 18 psi overboost, thats when the pierburg b/c worked.

On the stock turbo you can run anything up to 22/23psi safely. I ran 21/22 psi for 25k miles with no problems.

On the RR it ran 160 bhp and 180lb of torque at 3,000 rpm.

But you have fuel injection and the ECU sorts it all out for you...

Dont forget the R5 GTT is very old now!
 


Rich, i know that, thats wasnt might point. My point was that is a hell of alot of boost for a stock engine. My scooby only runs 14psi stock, with a fuel cut a 17psi, modern cars tend to runs less boost.

Ah... gotcha! :)

Yeah, it is a hell of a lot of boost for standard and they were not massively powerful at that level either. Was it 137bhp as standard I seem to recall?!

If the R5 or the Scoob had the boost wound up that high, theyd chuck out a lot more power. :D
