  1. Anything referring to the Lupo E please.
  2. So I'm currently trying to find information on what equipment was available on the Lupo in 2000, as I'm soon going to start restoring my base model 2000 Lupo 1.0 E, but upgrading the spec within what was available. Odd idea I know, but it's basically a classic car now Anyway I've found brochures for 2002 and 2005 but at some point before then the spec changed for the E as mine doesn't have the patterned seats as shown here or ABS, which was standard. Or I'm pretty sure it doesn't have ABS, there's no light on the dashboard and under my ownership it's definitely had every light going off at some point Anyway, wondering if anyone could help?
  3. The site name "Lunatic Fringe" probably goes well with the whole turbo'ing a 1.0 That said, I would imagine you could get a fair bit more power from a DOHC 16v 1.0 than a 8v 1.0 SOHC? If it won't blow up then I might consider it
  4. It's easier to put the Polo engine in than the Lupo engine into the Lupo?
  5. So the logical thing to do would be the AVY engine from the Lupo and Polo GTi? Had a look on eBay and prices don't seem to be too bad. The illogical thing is to turbo the 1.0, because the Gol in South America did that and somehow got 112hp? Is that the same engine, and how reliable were these?
  6. Did consider the 1.4 16v from the Sport, while one from the Lupo might be difficult to find, according to Wikipedia it had appeared in a few car? Is this the specific one that I'd be looking for? Was also considering the 1.0 TSi that appears in the up!, Polo and Golf among others, as they can be remapped to deliver good gains. Being a modern engine, I've no idea if it'd be more work to get going or not.
  7. I get the feeling that the internals might not hold up that well?
  8. That the 1.6 Lupo/Polo GTi engine?
  9. Ok, I already know what the first reply is going to be - don't bother just get a 1.4 or a GTi or something like that. That's not happening. I intend to work on my car and use this a base for a project. It's intended to be a long term thing as well, the car is going SORN and into storage soon so it's not going to be driven for a while. Intention is to work on it for a few years and then when insurance comes down for me on modified vehicles (19 and living in Manchester is a PITA) it'll be back on the road. I'm picking up a 2010 Toyota Aygo Blue on Tuesday as I needed something more economical and reliable. So, that's out of the way then - is there any engine that'll fit in a 2000 1.0 Lupo E with minimal (by engine swap standards anyway) faffing. Looking at something that'll leave me on a total of around 120hp at most, just enough so it's got a bit of punch on it. From what I've searched no engine will fit that bracket, so is it a case of all engines are going to be the same amount of work as long as they fit? Not doing the usual 1.8t swap before anyone asks.
  10. Just a heads up - Ordering should be open in December. That's what VW said on Facebook when I asked them anyway.
  11. Basic af 1.0 E, but it's miiinneee Also stock af because insurance.
  12. Also pictures would be really appreciated.
