    HELP WANTED : AUB/AVY HYBRID

    Hello First time posting here, Ive been told that the AUB cylinder head can be used to build the popular AFH/AVY hybrid, I understand the cams and pulleys are different, I have built the engine and tried to turn it over, my lupo sport originally had an AUB unit but the engine seized so I used the head to build my hybrid which is AUB/AVY as I was told it would run with a map. The engine turns over but struggles on the compression stroke, as if the starter is weak but I checked it and it is fine. I am wondering if anyone has built a hybrid either using the AUB or AFK successfully and if I could ask them some questions to sort some teething issues I am currently experiencing myself.
  2. This will cause some debate I'm sure! I'm in the market for a stainless cat-back exhaust, however the only readily available one seems to be Scorpion which has the oval center pipe. However, I think the car looks much nicer with twin center pipes so this one really isn't on the cards. I've emailed Janspeed and they said they still sell one for the Lupo GTi, but seems like it'll have to be manufactured as a one off because they gave a 4 week lead time, they quoted £425 inc VAT and postage (plus fitting of about £40 at a garage). On the other hand, there is a custom exhaust place near where I am that would do the cat-back system for £400 all in, and this is much more customizable. Just looking for opinions really, see if anyone has a custom system or a Janspeed system and what they think of each! Any opinions are appreciated!
  3. Hello all. Let's start from the very beginning. So I bought my Lupo GTI just under 3 years ago now - 28th June 2014 to be precise. I originally bought the car with every intention of making it a road going show car, after attending various local/nationwide shows with a select group of friends. The level of attention to detail of some of these cars was second to none and it was really quite inspiring to see first hand for myself. Growing up in the North West of England (Wigan) I was lucky to be exposed to a large variety of different automotive cultures. Be it everything from Japanese, German, VAG to Classic, High Performance and Concourse show cars. I started driving early 2012 and despite much controversy my first car was a 1.2 Vauxhall Corsa D (Unlimited Edition) . However after 2 years of ownership in 2014 I decided it was time for a change. I had recently gained employment at Jaguar Land Rover - Halewood and my insurance started to dip a little. It was then I set out on the hunt for a car to tick a few boxes. I wanted something fun, nimble, fast but at the same time something that wasn't going to break the bank insurance/fuel wise. After weeks of what seemed like endless searching I fell in love with a Black Lupo GTI I had found on AutoTrader. The owner, a 56 year old lady from Rugby, Warwickshire. The car itself was absolutely perfect (Black, 6 Speed, Low mileage 64K, FSH, Completely standard and unmolested). It was everything I was looking for.

    Fox Project

    Hey guys, I've had my fox for around 5 months now and I've recently started adding a few bits and pieces to it. I'ts a 06 plate with a 1.2L petrol engine. It had around 62000 miles when I picked it up and it now has around 68000 on it. I started off with something simple which was a gear knob change then a radio swap and I recently bought some alloys for it but they were 5x110 instead of the 5x100 that I know now is needed. I have also fitted some new brembo front discs and pads since the old ones were a little worn as well as recently fitting a chrome exhaust tip which I will be adjusting soon as I found that I can remove a plastic cover so it doesn't have to be at an angle. My next goal is to remove all scratches and dents that the previous owners have left for me. I was wanting to lower the car but I don't have a spare few hundred quid for coilovers so I might be getting some lowering springs soon. I have seen people installing Seat front lips onto their foxes so I think that could be a cool little feature to add to mine. Also once I get some new alloys I am hoping to paint my calipers red so give it that bit extra. If anyone knows how to remove the centre console so that I would be able to wrap it that would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Okay so I decided to take some pictures through the process of my discreet boot build. Push seats forward and remove boot liner... Insert 2 pieces of timber for false floor struts... Use silicone to secure the struts in as they hold it very strong but is also cleanly removable by force if needed (useful if restoring car back to original spec.) Place boot liner on a piece of 12mm MDF. Use this rather than plywood as it is dense and cusions sound frequency better. Alterations must be made to the template, If you just draw round the liner it will not fit* Use a jigsaw/coping saw or other various woodworking tools to cut out your base... Once base is cut out, measure to the centre using a steel rule or other straight edge. Mark out a circle using compass for the sub woofer to be mounted in... Test fit your base then finish in desired material. I decided to trim mine in Red leatherette Will upload rest of the build pictures tomorrow along with finished product pictures. If you are wanting one of these but do not want the hastle of making your own i can supply them for... £30.00 - plain cut MDF base. £40.00 - Carpet, Black/Grey. £45.00 - Leatherette colour of your choice.
