  1. My Lupo is sold! After 3 months it finally got sold.. : ) I bought a -07 Passat for now but i sense that the urge of a new project is on its way.. : )
  2. And now the first real update this year! Last saturday night ended with this mess : ) After doing some full throttle pulls to the revlimit on 5:th gear the little Lupo only ran on 3 cylinders... This is what had happend... Monday 7:30pm i started in the garage, this is what it looked like 8:48pm when the head came off. No compression on cylinder no 2 at all... A very burnt valve had taken the seat to he*l : ) Only one thing to do, scrap this head and find a new one... One hour later a new smallport head from a audi s3 is in my garage, 3 valve bent thou... Thusday afternoon was spent in the garage... After som valve grinding and porting to match the largeport intake the head is on the engine. Wendsday is spent with the lady at home in the sofa.. : ) Thursday its garage day again! All the boostpipes and hoses goes back in place and also the intake and electrical. 8:30pm it´s go for start and it does! : ) A testdrive for about 20km to see that all works well and it´s goodnight. The Lupo runs like before, maybe som more power in the bottom end.. Now its just waiting for the largest Vw show in scandinaivia the 6:th of june.. Then its up for sale, I want something new to build.... maybe an Up! with 2,0Turbo and 4wd.. : )
  3. Now spring is on its way in Sweden : ) and that meens that my Lupo is soon to be back on the road again! I'm waiting and longing for my little green friend now..!
  4. I just burried myself in some wiring diagrams and then i took apart my brothers Audi A3 for some measuring and there it is.. : ) Thanks, i think your car is coming together really nice! Looking good : ) I used the standard pump from the 1,4 engine and same goes for the pipes.. But do consider that mine i left hand drive.. The speedo is wired as standard, just made me an adapter cable from the standard Lupo loom to the 1,8t loom.
  5. There is'nt much going on this winter with the Lupo... Have got som polyflex bushes lying arond at home but I'll fit theme in the spring when the car comes out of it's resting place for the winter season... I did do an upgrade before putting the car to wintersleep.. I fitted cruisecontrol! Lupo never ever came with cruisecontrol! I used a lever from an old golf mk3 and made it fit : ) It works really well anyway!
  6. You can buy the mount for the chassileg as a spare from your vw dealer. I dont know what pedalbox to use for your RHD cars but in my LHD car i´m using the original one from the 1,4l AHW. You don´t get the hydraulic clutch with that setup tough... I have a 22mm mastercyl. from an old Passat around -90, don´t know how those fit RHD cars but it propably would fit just the same way around.
  7. Today i got my little Lupo dynoed at Dahlbäck racing. The result is: 254hp 400nm at the wheels 284hp 448nm engine power. A couple of pics... In the dyno: Dyno sheet:
  8. Jodå, den går bara bra : ) Fick ett par nya framdäck i förra veckan, dom verkar försvinna fortare än bakdäcken... konstigt.. : )
  9. I had that fitted in mine a few years ago when i was tuning that little 1,4 AHW .... It has no bracket for the throttlecable cause the polo has flybywire. And when you fit it, remember to take of the negative cable from the battery cause it will sit damn close to the starters positive cable. I got 105hp with the polo head+manifold+injectors, 1,6 AUS cams, header and remap. A pic of in the car with a homemade bracket for the cable. A pic of the manifold on my Polo gti head.
  10. Maybe the case : ) Your progress is looking good!!
  11. Lupos 16v engine are different from a Polo AFH engine. Maybe they are the same, just lookup the resistans before plugging them in.... Lupo standard injectors are very short while the APY/BAM injectors are "normal" size so they may need spacers. Everything will fit if you really want it to.... : )
  12. No, their too long and have wrong connectors. Not sure if they have the same resistans but i dont think so...
  13. What hubs are you using and what brakes?? I have Polo 6n2 Gti hubs and outer joints from the same model and I haven´t had any trouble with that setup...
  14. Maybe should have put some in a ecu upgrade maybe : ) There are always plans but to take the car with me I havto go to either denmark or norway to get to the boat cause they aren´t leaving from sweden anymore.... Just a trip to the boat for about 800km.. : )
