Hello from Croatia!

Here is my new project. I made few projects (mk2 golfs ), but this is the most complicated.

Two weeks ago I bought Lupo 1.0 and started to work

Awesome project! I've been reading the updates on edition38, coming on well. cool.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />

I've got some hi res pics of the Dubsport VR6 project if they're any use to you? No photo's of the mounts but you can get an idea of where it sits in the engine bay. Looks like it sits slightly further back than where you've positioned yours.

I know that engine in dubsport's Lupo Vr6 sits more back than my, but they have 5 speed Vr6 gearbox, and I have 6 speed gearbox. 6speed is much bigger. I already cut some pieces of subframe because gearbox is hitting subframe.

24V intake manifold is much bigger than 12V so I must remove central part of gille support

Fantastic project mate, think those engines are pretty tunable.

Sure you can get about 230HP from the standard engine.

Will you be making that bit on the bonnet into a curved piece? Would tie in well with the curviness of the rest of the front end. I wasn't even sure you were going to get the grill on but still looks almost factory apart from the hole in the bonnet! cool.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />

yeah liking the project iv always wanted a 24v v6 in my arosa but thats a pipe dream but two of them is mental as i said on edition 38

the only problem i saw from the pics on e38 is that the engine basically now occupys the space where the radiator was so what are you doing about that? oh and as chris 260 saids if you can make the bonnet extension match in with the curves it will be quite stealth

good luck your making good progress already smile.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Or a popped bonnet (at all four corners)? It'd be the first Lupo with one of those, afaik.

Deek.
