R5 GTT to Clio engine conversion.

Hi, does anyone know whats involved in putting a Renault 5 Turbo engine into a mk1 clio?

Mine is currently a 1.2 8v and i have been told that the R5 engine will bolt straight in, and run off my standard wiring loom due to the fact its still a carb'd engine- is this true?

  • does the exhaust meet up?
  • what driveshafts will be needed?
  • what is needed to cool the engine?
  • how much work is involved?
i have a renault mechanic who said he'd tackle the conversion if i get all the parts and info...
so please any help would be greatly recieved.
