  1. This year it didnt get back on the road until May as i took on too much over the winter and it took far longer than i expected to get it rebuilt! transformed the way it looks, handles and performs though so I'm really happy with the changes ive made to it. I use it enough, but mainly its for track. Great for the odd country lane blast, but lets face it i will either A- Die, or B- Loose my licence eventually. Saying that, have still managed 5 track days and competed in a few sprints which is fairly good considering, and another 800 miles on road. Weather or not i change it next year i still
  2. I have to say ive not looked back.... But the legend of the lupo (well the money from breaking it in to small pieces) lives on! Still playing with silly cars, with stupid power. Love it, would recommend this to anyone over the "scene" Little bit of fun at the rolling road power is at the rear wheels, dropped it a little as running too lean on higher boost. need more injector cc's: http://s42.photobucket.com/user/pikeypiles69/media/MK/IMG_0159_zps2a503f3c.mp4.html Car weighs 560kg.... so thats 737 bhp/tonne! And on track: http://youtu.be/4WkkZjC-jpo
  3. I don't come on here much, but when i do i always look out for a build thread about my engine! Im happy to finally see a thread. After all the conversations we had about it I'm glad to finally see it showing its face. Looking forward to seeing the re incarnation. To be honest, you took two of the best GTi's around at that time, and have brought them together..... (IMHO anyway, but i may be biased ) Good luck with the rest of the build. John
  4. Ok i have a few questions and a few observations if you dont mind, and im not trying to be critical because im being difficult, but more because id like to see someone actually succeed! Sport cams - why? the duration doesn't really match the application of a turbo car, the cam comes in higher up the rev range, you would have been better off with the originals IMHO. Fuel pump - A standard GTI fuel pump provides up to 5 bar of pressure and will flow @4 bar using 480cc injectors with 80% duty. i doubt you will need bigger than that! and the TT injectors wont fit your fuel rail unless you space i

    Remapping

    True dat, unless you have money and even more stupidity
  6. Hes talking about boost control against throttle angle, turbo engines use it because they can utilise the waste gate to control the boost, it can be mapped against throttle angle, this is to control the torque output of the engine at given throttle angles to make things more drivable. But ive only seen it used on turbo cars and dont think it would work with a charger. Mapping against throttle angle is all well and good but pressure differs with temperature leading to inconsistent power outputs, my preferred method would be manifold pressure using inlet temperature as an offset correlation. Tha
  7. baaaaaaaaaaaaah Isnt that the noise sheep make?
  8. Keal, If you have my manifold then thats great, as i had an adaptor fitted on the side to fit a WV EGT sensor in to one header which is great for mapping and preventing the engine melting, it can be used to retard the ignition when it reaches a certain temperature, believe it or not the highest prolonged temperatures are actually achieved when crusing at partial throttle due to a lean burn at this point for fuel economy. Ive herd mixed reviews on zircotec coatings, but it will help in your case. But to what extent i dont know. You can use a rotrex charger without a recirc valve if you wanted,
  9. The AVY and the ARC engine internals are the same, so yeah they will work. John
  10. Wrong engine to start with. Ally block, cant even remove the crank without distorting it, Worst choice of base engine to start with IMHO. Get a 100BHP engine or a cheap GTi lump and build it up. John
  11. I do occasionally make an appearance. Seems you have read in to it and understand what is needed, unlike most people on here that ask these sort of questions. The main issue i had, and seems to be a common thing with the M45 charger is heat soak and intake temperatures. The reason i had this problem was because i used a raceland manifold where the other charged cars used a standard GTi manifold. The headers on the raceland come out of the manifold further before dropping down which brought the charger in close proximity with the manifold and transferred a hell of a lot of heat, you can only li
  12. Ill reiterate for you, been there and done this with the 1.6 engine. You wont even make it on to the road with an standard internal set with 1 Bar boost. It will blow up on the rollers, it will take an edge off the standard piston in no time and wipe out the rest of the engine. With a CR of 8.5:1 and 15psi of boost you will be looking at on boost CR of about 17:1 which is too high for standard pistons. On forged you will be ok but you will need EGT monitoring to get the correct advance to aviod melting anything. I saw this happen on a gti engine with 7psi and 9:1 CR. French guy on here tried i
  13. If you put a hairdryer on cold mode directly on to the throttle body, wired directly to the alternator it will be rapid
  14. Ive just seen the rotrex in your sig picture, this will be awesome, which one did you go with in the end?
  15. Iirc I bought the 50 roll and I had enough to repair bits over time, it is horrible stuff to work with, was itching for weeks
