  1. Here I have a Kam Racing 4-1 stainless manifold with de-cat pipe for sale. Bought new and been fitted for one year. Fits 1.6 16v Lupo Gti. Selling because 1.8t engine swap and no more needed. I can add an adapter for Bastuck 2.5" exhaust. Item is in Finland but I can ship at buyers cost. 700€/£640
  2. The unlock operation depends on the coding. There is an option you can change with vcds so you can unlock all the locks with one press of the remote or like as you described. Im also betting on one of the door lock modules is faulty. I had same sort of issues with my mk4. It didn't flash when locking and randomly the passenger door didn't lock or unlock.
  3. Polo gti ECU? If yes i´ll have it.
  4. Really happy with the stance now. 1.5'' front 2'' back lips and some - camber added to back. Now they are flush with the fender. Color came out nice too although a bit brighter than I was intending.
  5. Changed the o2 sensor and put some sealant in the manifold slip joint as I thought it might be leaking air. So far so good no faults and seems to be pulling better. Time for new tires: Two summers and maybe 20k on these... oh well. Did paint the Ozs properly this time and new radinox dishes.
  6. So only code remaining is: 17526 - oxygen (lambda) sensor heating b1 s2 open circuit Could this be due decat? I think the sensor might have been damaged as I had to hammer it out. Wiring seems to be fine. Another thing Im wondering is what are the oem fuel pump and injectors capable of?
  7. I don't know, but there seems to be a delay between when you push the gas pedal and the throttle valve operates.
  8. Yes I know that but it shouldn't effect the readings on the first 02 sensor only the second.
  9. Gearbox turned out fine. Not perfect but no one will ever see it so... And Lupo is running again. Flywheel feels great and exhaust sounds nice. Too bad I'm getting some random codes from both 02 sensors. I don't believe the manifold is leaking as I've checked it many times but somehow sensor 1 is seeing too much oxygen now. Might need a remap. I did put a spacer on the second sensor trying to trick the ecu but seems like thats not working either.
  10. That sounds awesome! Do you still have the resonator in?
  11. Has anyone tried to eliminate the throttle pedal latency with vcds? I think it might be possible.
