  1. Nice car 👍 Nice modifications. Sits really well too on those wheels. Roof will be brilliant this summer too (fingers crossed for another good one!) Good luck with the sale
  2. Make: VW Model: LUPO GTI MOT: YES TAX: You can buy your own 👍 Engine size: 1.8 Fuel type: Petrol Description including modifications: Hi this is my Lupo 1.8t. It has been on the road now for a nearly a year after being garaged for 6 years with a broken timing belt. The plan was always to convert it to 20v power -this finally began in March last year and took 3 months to complete. Here’s a list of work that was done:- 1.8t and 5 speed box from a mk4 Golf gti Fitted with a Ko4 turbo with injectors 285bhp map N80, N275, secondary air and second lambda removed 3” downpipe New Front mount intercooler New radiator with slim electric fan Pipercross cone filter Recirc to air dump valve Ford Focus brake master cylinder Long diesel 5th gear -so 2800rpm at 70mph Quaife LSD with APR bolts Welded in Mk4 mounts Driveshafts made by engineering firm New disks and pads all round New wishbones inc bushes New anti roll bar bushes New Toyo Proxy’s Stance coilovers Bad bits/work to be completed:- Exhaust needs finishing currently 3” downpipe goes into original Gti exhaust. This needs a cat building into it. Fault logged for removed sensors need mapping out -this should have been done when originally mapped but wasn’t (?!) Lacquer peeling on roof. A few other age related marks but looks good with bright paintwork. Mileage currently reads 56k as replacement clocks were fitted after they failed shortly after last mot. Mileage was 151k new clocks were 51k! I have the old clocks to prove. I was going to have it corrected but tbh prefer looking at the smaller number The car is red. It has xenon lights with washers. Never had a/c so no extra switches that don’t work. Interior is very good. Seats aren’t torn or sagging. I use this daily and on a shitty 10 mile commute does 32mpg -thats a lot of stop starting. I drove to London and back in a single day and it returned 54mpg! Doesn’t overheat even in all that hot weather last year. Location: Manchester Images: Price: £4100 firm I can post more pics. Can anyone recommend a hosting site/app?
  3. This is still for sale if anyone else is interested.
  4. Sold on Ebay. Sorry lads you got to be quicker.
  5. Cars still on the road. It’s now a 20v.
  6. Again from my Lupo Gti. No leaks. I would recommend changing the seals and changing the oil -not essential but good practice. It comes with clutch slave cylinder, selector cables, starter motor. Also flywheel with clutch and inner cv joints (not pictured) Just reuse or source your own bolts. Would like collection only on this. Manchester M270EA 07903272886 £400
  7. I can. Its a bit bulky. Let me get a box sorted out.
  8. Never “just round the corner” are they ?
  9. This is my Lupo Gti’s old engine. The timing belt snapped on the way home from picking it up. I was traveling throughout road works in 6th at 50mph taking it quite easy when it went. I haven’t stripped it down so can’t say what it would need to get it back on the road. It’s complete apart from a few coolant hoses and the power steering pump missing. It was a good runner. No EML or misfires. Still has coil packs and throttle body. Ideal if you want to build an engine for your Lupo whilst keeping it on the road. For parts to get yours running right. Even just use the head and gas flow it. £55 collection Swinton, Manchester M27 07903272886
  10. My Gti undertray intact but has a small area of light inpact damage hence £20 collection Swinton, Manchester M27 07903272886
  11. My engine cover with air filter box. Ideal if you want to return your Lupo Gti back to standard. £30 07903272886 Swinton, Manchester M27
  12. Hi. I am looking for the part number for the engine mount used by some to install a 1.8t into a lupo gti. (Possibly a polo diesel or somthing) I know most people now go with the mk4 golf mount set up but I really want to use this one. Many thanks
  13. Buy a copy of "elsa win" off eBay. That's the workshop system vw use. You can every wiring diagram on there.
  14. Yes sounds like 3rd synchro. Part is cheap but time consuming to fit. I'm in Manchester -a bit far from Scotland!
  15. Enjoy the car, don't preserve it for the next owner.
  16. Bum Thanks for the replies. So what options are there for a 6 speed?
  17. Loving your work. Regarding the mapping of the car -you mentioned a program u are using. Where did u get it from? Does it use a standard diagnostic cable like vag com? Is there a forum? This is something I'd like to get into.
  18. Noticed most people use the gearbox that came with the 1.8t engine when they do a engine conversion. Is this just with the non Gti models? Will the 6speed Lupo Gti gearbox fit??
  19. Emissions are tested for the car, not the engine. So a newer engine in an older car -no problem. I had a 20v in a mk1 golf so it didn't even need to run the CAT. An older engine in a newer car could be a problem with emissions -does your Lupo have a CAT? Your old air cooled engine will struggle to meet its emissions level. The white mk3 pictured above uses a beetle chassis so is still a Beetle with a Golf shell ontop.
