  1. Seat Arosa 1.0 to 1.4 TDI Conversion

    Hi Guys, Yet another addition to the endless threads about engine conversions for the Arosa / Lupo. Ive been given a 1.0 Arosa that has great sentimantal value to m. I had always intended doing a major conversion on it when I got it, like a 1.8t or the likes however seeking the work involved ive been turned off the idea. Recently a 1.4 tdi arosa of the same year has come up for sale, and I wondered if anyone has done the 1.4 tdi conversion on the 1.0 petrol or if theres any info out there ?? This is really just a spare car to have around, and perhaps used on the occasional commute to work but it definately needs more power and the 1.4 tdi route seems the way to go given the tunability and torque. All info appreciated
  2. Missing cable

    Hi, I want to apologise if this was covered already but I don't have an idea what I am searching for so it's easy for me to ask you. Got my new Lupo a few days ago. It's 1.0 engine and so far is been spot on. However, I just start cleaning the engine bay today and spotted something missing. I can't remember what should be there from my 1.4 I just sold a few days ago. It will be really great if anyone can help or point to the relevant post on here or any useful information. Thanks

  4. What is this noise?

    I just changed the engine on my VW Lupo 1.0 E for a 40k engine and it sounds like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INvsmf8tRR0&feature=youtu.be Is that the sound of broken lifters or what? I thought that changing the engine would solve my problems..but I'm afraid I might be in for another nightmare It's got a new cam belt, and new 5w30 longlife oil. Any help always much appreciated!
  5. Hi all, I am looking to replace my 1.0 litre lupo with a 1.4 engine from another lupo, I was wondering if it was just a straight swap, so it just bolt's in? Also, when I get the engine I want to install a BMC CDA Induction Kit and was just wonderin if that's easy to install aswell. Cheers, Luke
  6. Lupo 1l performance mods

    Hi all i was wondering what performance mods i could do to my 1l to make a bit more power? I looked at k and n induction kit but wasn't sure of it would do much. I read somewhere that you can fit a sport inlet and gti throttlebody. Would that ne suitable for a 1 litre? Is the sport inlet a lupo 1.4 inlet? Not sure what i can do engine wise Thanks
  7. Standard GTI Airbox

  8. Black specks on tailgate

    Hi all new here and looking for advice with my 2003 gti - I keep getting black specs up the back of my car it's had a bottom end rebuild 10k ago so I doubt it's the piston rings, it's fitted with a scorpion power flow cat back the black specks seem to be carbon out the exhaust and accumulate over a couple of days after washing the car - anyone on here experienced this at all ? Any advice appreciated - thanks

(glasgow area)
  10. First of all hello to everyone, I am new to this and will probably annoy most of you as I am sure this has been covered before. I I am in the middle of an engine swap, I have a 1.4s (75hp) and am looking to swap for what I believe to be a (100hp) 1.4 sport engine, this is out of my friends car and was a second engine to him so don't know much about it... Went to fit it yesterday to get it all hooked up (on my origional ecu) didn't fire no spark, then went to switch his ecu to find out it is totally different, so would I be able to just switch out the engine loom of his car (100hp engine) if so how do I go about doing this? Where does the loom go to? Thanks in advance Kyle
  11. Help! Oil light flashing

    So basically i got new leads and plugs fitted on my lupo, and drove it home from the garage. the engine got really hot, and my oil light came on, I had to drive around with the heaters on full to cool the engine until i got home. Discovered that the thermostat had gone, got that fixed and hoped that the oil light would go off too. Nope. It came back on a week or so after. Ordered a oil sensor and filter, and had it serviced today, and still the light comes on. It isn't constant, and in the 3 months of owning it, it's come on 4 times. Anyone know anything ??? What could it be, the mechanic at the garage said it could be the oil pump. But I don't want to get things fitted if it going to be wasted money and not actually fix the car this is my first car, so I'm in love with it and I'd be heartbroken if I had to scrap it!
  12. Now sold
  13. conversion 1.4 - 1.8t

    hi i dont know if this has already has been posted or not i cant seem to find it if it has! i will be getting an engine conversion done in the near future to a 1.8t and i was just wondering as to what gearbox would be the best to fit? should i stick with the gearbox that is with the original engine or should i change it to something else?? any help would be greatly appreciated. cheers peeps or any links to some gearbox threads
  14. Hello all, First off, I know this has been posted lots before but honestly the information seems so scattered and varied and I'm not sure how applicable all of it is to my situation so I'm sorry for reposting this...please don't murder me Anyway I've come into the possesion of a 6n2 GTI engine block from a local vw dismantlers. My little (AUC) 1.0 litre has s*** the bed so I planned to do an engine swap anyway but then I got this engine for basically nothing. I know the best way to do this is to buy a complete Polo GTI that's been rear ended or something and begin swapping everything over but I don't want to buy one that's already sold some essential parts I need. So from my understanding this is what I need now from another polo with the same engine code as the one I have (AVY) Gearboxengine loominterior loomECUradiatorfuel pumpfront hubs/carriers/calipers/discsand the ignition barrel. Is there anything else?How does the AVY fit onto the AUC Engine mounts, I think I read somewhere new mounts will need to be made am I right?And also are any of these parts interchangeable between GTI polos and GTI lupos, just in case I can't find the part on a polo maybe I could use the GTI lupos. I've found lots of posts and some even talking about guides for this sort of thing but none linking to them and I can't seem to find it through the search on this forum (Probably because I'm not a huge forum user but still...) Any help would greatly appreciated. Cheers!Thanks so much!

  16. Hi Guys, Got a problem with my Lupo SDI, When the car is cold, I can hear a loud squeaking noise from the left hand side of the engine. It looks as though it may be the belt (lower part of the engine) Does anyone have an idea how to check this? I've never changed it, had it over a year, car's done 30k miles, no idea when it was last changed. Many thanks

Regularly serviced and maintained, folder full of history for the girl! I have a video of it running and a video showing a compression test across all cylinders.

  18. Go to last page for most recent updates. Currently running 423bhp. How she stands at the moment. Hello, Before I start I just want to say a quick something to all those people who go on about people who pay for these kinda things and don't get a finger dirty! Its not that I don't want to do my own conversion, I'd love to do it myself but I don't have the skills required or the time that would be needed. Things that I can do myself like brakes, suspension and other bits and bobs I have but this is just too far past me, Lol! But hey if you wanna have a pop at me feel free lol! My car is a 1.4sport on a 1999 plate. I've already uprated the brakes to 280mm G60's on the front and it has black diamond drilled and grooved discs all the way round with black diamond pads as well! Its lowered on FK highsport silerline coilovers and is currently runnin on G60 steelies. The car is being done by PSI Tuning in Stoke on Trent who've had the car for about 3-4 weeks now. They've not long finished off the custom mounts and have the engine sitting where its going to be going. The engine is a 225bhp lump with a five speed box on it. Here are the pictures during.... Thanks for looking, I'll keep you updated on the progress. Sam.

  20. Hello! Just after some ideas on sorting out my Lupo! I've just got a 1.4 75bhp 16 valve 2001 reg with 103,000 on the clock and I've been wanting to rebuild the engine. I've been looking at changing the engine for something a little quicker but I've been wondering about just rebuilding this one with some performance pistons and some fast road cams etc etc. does anyone have any suggestions aside from this? Obviously I would be adding a performance 4 branch manifold and a full stainless system with a sports cat etc, but any ideas would be much appreciated! Also, what kind of power output could I expect from the 1.4 16 valve engine? Thanks, Amelia

  23. VW Lupo 1.2 TDI - Problems

    Hi, everybody! I'm quite the new beginner when it comes to what's going on under the hood of a car, so it's been quite hard finding topics referring to my problem, since I don't know what the parts do or are called. Although, worth mentioning is that I don't mind getting my hands dirty and I prefer hands on learning. So here's my story: I've owned my Lupo for almost two years now and I've had a few problems during this time. Nothing big though and it's always run smoothly. The car has gone 210 000 km, which is about 130 000 miles, so it's probably on the bad side of the human 50's, I guess, considering physical condition, of course. About two months ago I lost my acceleration, basically. At first I thought that the car was a bit slow but then I reached "Åby-backen", which is a steep slope on the freeway, outside my hometown "Norrköping" and found that going uphill I could reach a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). I got passed by lorries and in order not to piss people off I had to stay at that speed for the rest of the ride. So, this is the state that my Lupo is in atm. I cracked up the hood and found some leads as to what was causing the turbo, I suppose, not to work. I'll show you what I'm talking about in some pictures but here's also a short text description. A major oil spillage revealed that a quite thick pipe had sprung loose. So I cleaned the engine quickly, jammed the pipe back in jumped in the car and drove off. Now everything was smooth sailing once again. But I was quite suspicious and rightfully so. I thought to myself that it shouldn't be that easy. Of course I wanted to try the acceleration off for real and here's where it happened. The pipe sprung loose once again and I could hear how the engine started to, I dunno how to put it but, roar in an unsatisfying way and I lost my acceleration once again. Now I thought that the problem was that the pipe was old and worn out so I made a Donald Duck kind of repair and used a pair of straps to fasten the pipe again. This worked for a few days but somehow it doesn't any longer. It's quite tight but still the pipe is pushed out. I'm thinking that it might have something to do with pressure rather than a screwed up pipe. Sorry for the long post. I hope you can look past that and help me in finding a solution to my problem. Thank you! Pictures> If you need to see more pictures just say and I'll post what you need.
  24. Hi guys, i am picking up a new engine and gearbox lump for my lupo, im changing from the 75hp 1.4 to a 100horsepower version. i have got engine gearbox and ecu from him, however he scrapped the car with the wiring loom still inside! here is my question, is it the same wiring loom between the two models? a completely different one, or is it possible to splice the new ecu into my existing loom i understand i will have to flash the ecu to remove the immobiliser system that is normally coded to the key and i am able to do that with the help of my local garage i believe. any advice? anyone who has done this and has any tips would be grateful
  25. Engine conversion ideas

    Hi guys, Does anyone know if anyone's done anything other than 1.8t swaps and the usual old stuff? I was wondering how hard it would be to fit the new polo gti engine (1.4tfsi running 180ps) and it's gearbox? That would be pretty cool IMO! What do u guys think? Other than it being a hugely costly project considering its a brand new engine bla bla bla.
