    Lupo GTi (Jap import)

    how many rpm to get the 226? i wanna do the math 2.8 or 2.9?
  2. i don't like "Up"s either. Very sensible getting rid. Fox (Brazillian factory) was better than Up, but still didn't have build quality of a lupo. Mk2 golfs are still running...! What has happened to Vdub's build quality???

    Hi from Plymouth

    welcome to our little lupo world! nice looking motor.
  6. the injection system is the same. identical. but, the quantity adjuster or plunger is programmed to dispense more fuel at higher revs in the 1.9. BUT, if you could reprogram an SDI ECU (remap), it'd work fine. I'm 100% sure, now that I've been through the entire injection system. lupo quiz... i've thought of a new part. need to take a pic of it first. no-one will ever get this one!
  7. So who's gonna write some questions? Between everyone, we probably know everything about Lupos and Arosas. But individually, who'd get most right? Rich, Silver, Pete and MattyB not allowed to enter :) Unless blindfolded. Hands only. just some ideas??? -------------- ID this part... What is the most common cause of .... What is this common part number for .... Where was this part made .... Which models have this .... What's the difference between.... Who designed .... What is this made of.... What fits into this.... What other car makes/models use this... What are the origins of this part...

    Hay, im after a bit of advice please

    it's just a pulley. whole used engine £200 on ebay. so maybe a fiver? "i hope it's not too expensive dear seller. i only have a thousand pounds on me...."

    Front springs from 1.0

    would you split? i only can use the rears, as the fronts are different for all models... different mass engines!

    SDI alternator removal - how the heck!?

    to move the slam panel, don't you need to access the bolts behind the bumper? as in you can't get to it without stripping lots out of the way? never done it, but the gap is small, like 10-12mm...
  17. correct! next....? (ok, so everyone knows i only have SDIs) but used in most timing belt position critical pulleys, on most engines. it slots into the shaft and locks a pulley in place (just in case you have no idea what we're talking about) to stop it rotating on the shaft.
  18. ok, where does this very critical thing go? without it, all hell breaks loose. i should have put some scale in there, but it's about 13mm long and looks just like a rare earth magnet (but isn't).

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    nice result. that'll outlast the rest of the car!

    they dont really expire. and are very useful to keep just in case. they just burn, but don't have any propelling ability, so no use in a rocket. however emptying out the contents of an airbag actuator can be interesting.

    vw lupo gti, raven blue,

    my first thoughts were that it was some odd breathaliser thing that you had to blow into before the car decided that you were able to drive it. in singapore, they have audible warning 'chimes' that make different sounds depending in how fast yiu're driving. just in case you cant see the speedo.....

    sounds curious...
  25. almost certainly a wiring or connector issue. not switch. not bulb. not indicator switch flash mech. not fuse. not power relay. not earth. i'd start at the light bulb connector and work back. a thin needle or pin pushed thriugh the insulation is your friend (with a multimeter or another tiny light bulb).
