    Lupo GTI 1.8T - Forged engine, 290bhp

    I've pmd the op. Let's see what he comes back with.. the new fella might swap it for a standard luoo Gti. Be easier for him to sell and make some profit I'd imagine.

    Re-installing a 6 cd changer issues

    I've had this. I ended up swapping headunit and it picked up the CD player then. Never figured out what was what though.. second hand gammas are cheap

    Engine conversions.. where to go for info?

    I've not got the disposition nor inclination to learn anything new at my age.. 😂 Is the 1.8t the engine conversion of choice still? I kinda want to see what's involved so I can show my mechanic mate and just pay him to sort it for me! I'm all for bought not built. 😃😃

    Lupo Gti intake pipework

    Don't suppose you'd have and engine cover and airbox to go with that pipework @Rich I'm getting a bad vibe from the other seller I've been dealing with. I'll pm you me details now or the pipe work. 👍

    Lupo Gti intake pipework

    Done deal.. Consider yourself the proud new owner of a VW Gamma Minidisc player!
  20. I'm in Ireland.. let me check if it works next time I'm in the garage. It won't get all the stations without a band expander though. As it's set for Japanese radio frequencies.
  21. I'll post a pic tomorrow
  22. I have one in one of the lupos.. gamma mini disc too!
  23. As I can't seem to find an engine cover and airbox.. looks like I'll have to go this route It's 2018 and are the suggestions still CDA intake as weapon of choice? Search function is returning some old ass results so not sure what's best today.. Any help appreciated
  24. I import Lupo gtis from Japan. On the whole they've been very good examples. Some have come in with silly electrical mods which have been easily rectified. The mechanical mods are generally no more extreme than a set of Coilovers and a Catback.. I do have one in at the minute that has Coilovers, Induction kit, Oil catch can, ECU tune and aftermarket alloys.. Its actually a great little car to drive. But the main thing all these imports have in common is the overall condition. They are literally like 2-3 year old cars. Super clean underneath, virtually no rust. Personally, I would by a car from Japan over a car from the UK everytime. My Last 3 cars have been from Japan. (BMW e39 525 individual, Audi B6 A4 Avant Sportec edition, Vw Golf Gti Pirelli Edition) Im not sure where the idea comes from that all Japanese car owners are boy racers..? There is almost 130m people in Japan. Kind of a sweeping statement Japan is the home to so much exotica and run of the mill that it makes it a car lovers dream and if you chose not to explore this as an option I feel thats an opportunity missed.
