    SDi Daily fantasia with added turbo

    Not sure where the output flanges end up but driveshafts can be made to fit the gap and they are only short. would rather keep track the same and make the thing fit.

    Sitrep, I have a cable shifter and hydro pedal box on the way from a breaker so things are gonna get choppy soon. I have a TDi box from a golf, I think, point is it will fit a much bigger clutch and flywheel setup so its gonna get jammed in by my friend and diesel whizz Nath at Resto Classics while I am away working for a week in may. Its a bit of a trial but the theory is all lining up and worst case the casing is 30mm bigger so with a bit of fab and some "adjustment" this should see the torque back up. Its fun as it is but clutch is being a real wimp now and I have come this far so......😁

  5. Hi, Any offer of above I need a Tdi or Gti pedal box and the cable shifter mech for my SDI turbo conversion. Got a tai box to go in with a much bigger clutch as the old unit is just a wimp

    Thinking I might drag the Lupo up to sandown park tomorrow, gonna go up for a mooch about and pick up a few bits but might be the ideal shakedown for a longer journey. Will see how I feel in the morning and whether I can be arsed to dig it out from the drive full. 😁

    Yeah the 1.7 has 1.9 on the block so we are thinking it should work, more measuring but as Nathan says the only way we will know is if we get it up in the hole and try it.

    Well we got another second hand flywheel and clutch assembly to have a play with but we also have a 1.9 tdi box we are gonna see if that will fit. This will tackle the clutch and the gearbox strength issues and give us slightly better ratios too. Long way to go but should have a great fun, fast and super expensive Lupo SDi turbo that doesn't shred the drivetrain by summer. Do any of you know if this has been done in the uk? or further afield, would love to know if we are the only loons ;0

    Gonna be honest dude I have a mate who is the brain when it comes to diesel tuning. Nathan at Resto Classics in Hastings, he did the tune and fitted the nozzles to the factory bodies I will ask him tomorrow about he size and timing

    It is nice and revy, we will get a curve plotted once we are happy with the drivetrain I think. its got more on the top than a 3pot tdi but similar to my 20. 16v tdi in my mk5 golf. As far as I know we changed the injector nozzles in the stock bodies then mapped the stock ecu. Its all a bit of an experiment but the first few drives are very pleasing. has totally transformed the SDI and even the idle is smoother

    Plan is once the other flywheel and clutch is here tomorrow we can compare to other stuff laying about and make a bigger version in the same space. Mk2 gti is 210mm so may work too

    Standard EDC15VM+ Lupo ecu flashed with new software Got the torque dialled back so the clutch copes for now and Nathan the guy responsible for the work and expertise has got a plan to get a bigger, better clutch assembly sorted. I have ordered a second hand flywheel and clutch assembly for measurements and mock up so hopefully we will come up with a solution

    We are up and running Modified Volvo V70 inlet, Passat GT1749V turbo reclocked and an AFN exhaust manifold All running and buttoned up just got a few tweaks to do on maps and sensors clutch was tired anyway so slips when prodded so need an upgrade, anyone know of a 190mm upgraded kits they can recommend?

    1.7sdi turbo?

    Ok we have got the sdi turbo install done . We used Modified Volvo V70 inlet, Passat GT1749V turbo reclocked and an AFN exhaust manifold Added a Passat Side mount intercooler and swapped eco and injectors and we are making boost. Slight hitch is the clutch is pretty sad and we have found its limit so anyone any experience of uprated 190mm clutch kits?
