The Lowdown by the owner Vas Selvaratnam:
Here is my spec with no doubts some parts missing as I have been on a 7yr journey since buying the infamous Glenn Hi-5 Engine which holds the current quickest record for a 1.4 GT turbo engine of 11.02 sec qtr mile back in 2011. Since buying this I have been looking for a base shell to use for my build and its not been easy with budget constraints and the last were pretty bad and now finally on my 3rd shell…hooray i would say it’s 95% solid hence why I went for a 1995 2 owner low mileage campus shell which was likely to be the last of the Renault 5 shell before the Clio’s came on the market. I reckon 6 months maybe more to complete this build but the plan is to be ready for the Renault Turbo Owners club national day to have some fun. I will be honest this is the first time I’m doing this and it will be a great experience but also a lot of learning as I get to feel the new setup and see what times I can get. I know I will be in safe hands as the RTOC community is great but more importantly I have GBG to support me and also the infamous Scoff with tuning wizardy at EFI-parts who knows this engine very well but also has even crazier, monstrous Renault 5 then I do.
