+1 for the pics pleas. I like my old school turbos, good 5's are rare in the uk let alone out here. Have to do a meet up/drive day and I'll bring my 21 turbo ( just let me get it rego'd)

ahh ok yeah I have had 3 of them they go ok til they go pop lol

 

They usually go "pop" due to bleed valves. Boost hungry kids turned them up without re-jetting the carb and getting the fueling checked on a RR, to much boost, heat and not enough fuel results in detonation and split liners or blown head gaskets. That little 1.4 can be tuned to a reliable 250+ bhp if you watch the setup, there are cars with more.

The engines are good very old proven pushrod engine if memory serves me correct from the 60s!

 

but yeah people do wind the boost up and expect them to be ok.. cooling and fuel biggest problem on a r5 I had j5 gtt skeete widebody plus a s1 in pearl white and a grey ph2

Welcome mate.You will have to upload them to a host like Photobucket or flicker and copy the link from them.

 

Great car. I have had a few including two Raiders, currently have a gun metal grey phase II. They are what triggered my love for Renault/RS. I still have mine sat up in the garage in Ireland, it's worth too much to me to let go for €2,000 :(.

 

You can see a few pics here:

Click the rectangle with the arrow in it, then click the 'thumbtack' and select the size you want

Yeah I had seen the wash bays behind......it was just a sight many 5 and 21 turbo owners got used to at one point.
