    Bike carbs and coil packs.

    I would be tempted to cut out the middle men and try powering direct from the battery From Sausages link, page 3 - just found out you can paste Snip tool images - Very cool! Terminal 4 on the coil pack is the switched live feed, there is 3 or 4 connections in the standard loom, removing them temporarily to test

    Wow rear wishbone bushes

    Lemforder are an OEM supplier to VW, sometimes their stuff comes with VAG part numbers on them, sometimes it has been ground off. Starline...i have never heard of before, suspect it is another ECP **** brand. I dont know if the track rod ends are specific or same as normal Lupo ones, or is it the rod? - all I know is I bought complete track rods and some of it I will have to replace for my rebuild. ECP are OK at refunds -I would take care of the packageing you get the ends in and very carefully compare existing You can live without the metal plate.

    Crankposition sensor!?!?!

    thanks - I think most of their stuff is online, was more interested in how logical the SW is. Help line comment is noted, bet they are a Ford guy!

    Crankposition sensor!?!?!

    I just dont tell about the big stuff, if mine knew how much I spent on my LSD and gearbox refresh she would go completely nuts! Wife gets frustrated with the number of packages i get for the Lupo. The other day I got some standard rear Pagid flexi hoses (just for emergency use till I run the lines in the cabin) only a tenner from ECP, so if I had been challenged I would have got away with that -lucky most of the standard stuff is cheap, awful shame the fun stuff is in a different league price wise. I appreciate you have yet to get your Lupo running, interested in the ignition management you have, have you looked at the ME software? I ask as ME211 management is one of the ones I am thinking of when I go to bodies -But I keep flipping to Omex and now Megasquirt is also distracting me aswell!

    Good work - I still see sound deadening in the pics, there is a good few Kg's you can loose there, need to do the same on mine

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    Sausage - I have not received the adaptors yet , when they turn up Ill happily measure any dimension you wish - plenty of time, it will be a few weeks before I start ripping the Lupo apart

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    I went 3/8th... but remember I am deleting my power steering, the pipe is a vent to link the 2 connections up. Basically I am doing a DIY version of: https://eaaengineering.com/products/mk4-golfjetta-gas-diesel-bew-de-power-steering-conversion Granted its not as pretty, but all in a lot less cost than the $89 + postage from trumpville and then HMRC taking a chunk as well If I don't like manual I can put it back - will try it in stages, initially drained system for some mixed driving, then its either hoses back on or hoses, pump & reservoir stripped. Just got to source a shorter belt to drive just the alternator, that size is listed in another thread somewhere buried on here.

    Lupo GTI Ball Joint

    yeah the ball joint was completely wrecked, just got a couple of turns on the nut and it just started spinning and spinning. the ball joint just was not coming out of the hub - cut off disc sorted it. One thing I have noticed is Gti ones seem to have a lozenge hole behind the joint - hard to see on my old ones, but pictures of new ones above its clear as day: Just checked my new ones, both the same - could that be the confirmation of Gti ball joints?

    Got the hose today - glad I went for the 500mm one, 250 would have been too tight - what a lot of literature they sent with it

    GTI Camber and Toe

    Rich - Rods Gti specific, but are tie rod end same across range?
  20. If there is a gap between the hatch and the spoiler you could try sawing through the bonding to remove the spoiler. When they take out windscreens they used a braided line - they used to use metal cheese wire, until they worked out it cause rust where it stripped the paint. Closest I have seen is fly fishing backing.

    Drive Shafts Lupo GTi.

    If you can afford to keep the Lupo off the raod, you can strip them down to just shafts and get the them powder coated.

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    Cheers Sausage - with your links I put together a 3/8 kit with 90 elbows for £15 if it turns out to be rubbish I wont feel so bad having spent so little, - well at least that's what I will be telling myself whilst re-installing the PS pipes

    HELP! SDI power steering pipes burst.

    Nice cheap fix Sausage - where did you source your stuff from? I'm looking to try deleting the power steering and fit a loop of hose onto the rack, but I keep getting distracted by AN fittings on Ebay, your stuff looks spot on for my job aswell
