  1. 4 branch manifold lupo gti???

    from the pics it doesn't look like any of the other performance manifolds that are fitted to the GTI.. either way with that price it's going to be super thin chinese steel which can easily crack. if it did fit there is no guarantee of a performance increase also as don't have any testing to prove it flows well..
  2. 4 branch manifold lupo gti???

    thanks for the plug.. The Kam Racing / Grams manifold is the only one that has been developed especially for the GTI and has the second lambda in the correct place.. it was actually developed for my car and has proven gains. You can see a vid of it running with it here:

    you have pm
  4. Powerflex Bushes - where to buy?

    can do a club deal on the Powerflex bushes if people want them. Just PM me what ones you want and can work out a price https://www.kamracing.co.uk/car-tuning/volkswagen/vw-lupo/suspension.html?product_category_sub=4322
  5. WANTED Lupo GTI

    I'm going to be putting up one of my lupo gti's for sale this week. it's a 54plate with the 6spd box and has the Kam Racing manifold / exhaust, BMC CDA, KW V2's. was thinking around the £4k mark. would be for sale with the standard rims rather than the OZ's in the vid. has recently been put through an mot and went through fine.. this is it: if interested can sell with a set of ITB's that never got round to fitting also
  6. Definitive Coilover Thread

    just for reference the ST-X coilovers made which are also made by the KW automotive group are basically the KW V1's without the stainless steel bodies. The AP ones (Also KW group) use the same bodies but with not quite as good internals hence being a bit cheaper than the ST-X ones. That being said they still give a pretty decent ride for just under £350.. If you do go up to the £600 mark then there is another coilover brand which I am actually thinking of putting on one of my GTi's as all the feedback we've had has been positive. The BC Racing coilovers are monotube which are a bit stronger, control body roll a bit better and have a better high speed bump response than the twin tube dampers used by most other companies including KW. they are bump and rebound adjustable which you don't see at this price range often. The other main difference between these and any other coilover is that the ride height is adjusted by moving the damper up and down in the strut housing rather than through adjusting the spring platform - this means that you get the ride height you want without affecting the preload on the damper (I am really suprised no one else does this).
  7. OEM shock + lowering springs

    the reason oe length dampers tend to fail quicker with lowering spring fitted is because the damper is partially compressed at the new ride height. this means that there is less travel when going over bumps before you are exceding the limits of the damper and hitting bumpstops etc. if you hitting bumpstops it is also not exactly great for handling as you get bump steer.. with shortened dampers such as the Bilstein B8 dampers (which you get in the Bilstein B12 Pro kit) you get the same amount of travel as oe but in a more compact body so that you can run at lower ride heights. we have tested a GTi before and after fitting the Bilstein B12 Pro suspension and it gave virtually the same comfort as the standard setup down the farm track that leads up to our unit which is normally rough as hell.. have to say it performed great on the country roads too as the Eibach springs used are progressively wound so stiffen up for corners to give best of both worlds.
  8. Whiteline arb

    if you want a new one then we will finally have new stock at the end of the month (whiteline have had supply issues recently) http://www.kamracing.co.uk/car-tuning/volkswagen/vw-lupo/suspension/anti-roll-bar-kits/vw-lupo-whiteline-rear-anti-roll-bar-bwr19z.html
  9. H&R vs Eibach Springs.

    The H&R is about the same lowering. I think the only two solutions are to make a custom top mount rubber to lower the car another 10mm or fit coilovers.
  10. GTI Brake Issues

    You will find out whether the calipers are seized when you try to wind them in to fit the new brake pads and discs. I'd bleed the brakes and see if that recovers the braking.
  11. annoyed with new coilovers!

    were the coilovers for a non gti?
  12. Lupo 3L - should it stay or should it go?

    get in line there's a que forming haha
  13. bonnet pins

    they the aerocatch ones then I take it?
  14. New coilover set needed

    not sure, development costs are not cheap so unless we either get a load of confirmed sales prior or do something like a kickstarter project to cover this then it may be some time before we could afford to do it (we're only a small family business)..
  15. New coilover set needed

    They're not cheap but these are pretty damn good.. http://www.kamracing.co.uk/car-tuning/volkswagen/vw-lupo/suspension/bushes-mounts/ast-solid-top-mounts-vw-lupo.html If there was enough interest we might get our own set developed. We've already created ones for the Clio Mk1/Mk2's, 106's and Saxo's which were a lot lower in price than AST ones so expect it would be a similar affair for the Lupo / Arosa..
