  1. AGU hose layout

    I have an S3 rear subframe which I need to mount at the rear so the floor needed to come out anyway. I'll mount that with the RS4 diff in a cradle then run a shortened TT prop. I've noticed the original GTI subframe raises up in the middle leaving little space for the prop but from what I can see the 1.2TDI subframe is paralel from mount to mount which will leave me more tunnel space.
  2. AGU hose layout

    In the front 4wd, just want to keep it tidy without any unnecessary piping.
  3. AGU hose layout

    I've stripped the engine bare & want to make up some silicone hoses but am wondering whether there is a simpler way to plumb it all in like cutting out certain pipework etc. I've heard about the breather removals etc & am hoping for a guide or advice.
  4. 1.8T Engine mounts

    There is one mount that fits the drivers side & the left needs modding from what I can see from builds but no pics because of photobucket again. I know the box will fit with modding of the left chassi leg.
  5. 1.8T Engine mounts

    I'm putting my 20v in the front now with a 02M 4wd box for the conversion but am unsure what engine mounts people use. The gearbox mounting I will sort myself but I've heard so many different things as to which engine mounts work with this conversion from Polo to Seat Leon TDI mounts. Can anybody advise me which ones to use? Part numbers would be ideal. Thanks in advance guys.
  6. 4WD Lupo Conversion

    That's what I meant!😂😂😂
  7. 4WD Lupo Conversion

  8. 4WD Lupo Conversion

    I'm 99% sure I've seen somebody else do this but cant find any pics even on any other forum! "Thanks Photobucket for ruining everybody's build by removing hosting!"
  9. 4WD Lupo Conversion

    Yeah like a Porsche 911 C4S! haha no thinking of putting the engine in the front with TT/S3 drivetrain/Haldex unit. I've already got the rear subframe mounted in for rwd but thinking outside the box before I start more work.
  10. 4WD Lupo Conversion

    Yeah I actually read about that one, that's the only one I seen whilst searching. Hopefully looking for somebody to ask a few questions though. Thanks anyway as it's quite an informative read. 👍🏽 I just don't think 500-600bhp will accelerate very well as just a rwd even though the engine will only sit slightly in front of the rear wheels.
  11. 4WD Lupo Conversion

    Has anybody fitted a TT Quattro gearbox into a 1.8T Lupo? I'm in the process of doing a rwd conversion with a stroked 1.8 to 2.1. I'm thinking that I'm not going to put the power down very well so thinking of TT/S3 box & running gear but wondered if this has been done before.
  12. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    Started to weld the subframe mounts in over the weekend in between the British summertime rain. Nearly done but need to move the mounts back 5mm to get the wheels centre & weld a few braces & strengthening plates in situ.
  13. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    Bought a brand new Draper mig welder last week & it burned out just feeding the wire through the liner so sent it back & ordered a Sealey Supermig 180 so knocked me back a week already.😔 Hopefully should have the sububframe in place by the end of next week ready to fabricate the lower rose jointed wishbones. Also after a bit of research I decided to go down the 2.1(2067cc) stroker kit that Integrated Engineering offer. Also now the EFR 6258 turbo is out of the question as it only takes up to 450bhp. May have to go down the EFR8374 route now as it's still one of the fastest spooling turbos & is good for up to 750bhp.
