    Lupo tdi -daily high miler :)

    Hi there, Quite a few of you will probably know my lupo by now as I've had it for around 5years and been to many shows . Starting a new build thread as my old one is around 3 years old now. I use the car everyday and was doing around 600 miles a week ,moved closer to my work now so I have a bit more cash to throw t it to keep it going,did have a deposit on an 06 cooper s but changed my mind at the last moment I'll try and get some pics up of how it stands now

    Lupo tdi -daily high miler :)

    Forgot to add that to the spec,it's running a garage midnight stage 1 revo map, If you having an intercooler off them get it fitted there as if there is any troubles they can fix it on site ,was rolling roaded on the same day as fitting but not mapped by them,gonna wait to get the injectors and turbo done then get it properly mapped I might look into the different air box,or just junk all the standard pipe work and just have a silicone pipe to the turbo with a cone filter

    Lupo tdi -daily high miler :)

    Mine was around 550 but had a few problems,which tbf they have sorted now. It is expensive but worth every penny,can hammer it round now and worry bout it,water temp is slightly higher though as less air flow I plan on taking it on a track soon,other than the ring

    Lupo tdi -daily high miler :)

    Standard internals amf engine, K and n panel filter, Turbo back stainless exhaust with hidden tailpipe, Darkside developments hard pipe intercooler kit with 51mm pipes throughout(standard pipes are 37mm), Brand new engine mounts, Team dynamics 1.2 7x15 Yokohama ad08 195/50/15 tyres, Weitec coilovers , White line rear arb, Next step is Hybrid turbo , Polybushing all round, Interior strip, Bucket seats , Had lots of problems at the ring to be honest went there before intercooler was done and engine kept backing the power off due to huge intake temps upto 70c now doesn't go above 30ish degrees unless in traffic . Looking for about 130bhp plus after the turbo and injectors are done

    115? Doubt it,you had it on a dyno yet? Get it rolling roaded and then you will have a base figure to work on

    Cold air feed on TDi, is it worth doing?

    Hi only just saw this ,I'll try and get a pic up
  16. richardn

    Cold air feed on TDi, is it worth doing?

    Power stayed roughly the one with only a 1.4hp gain on dyne run,but torque was up by around 25-30 lb ft,tbh the lag is no different to how it was before

    Cold air feed on TDi, is it worth doing?

    I've got a darkside developments intercooler on mine and its huge,really does a good job though and will drop the intake temp by around 40 degrees,mine was backing off power when the intake got to 66 degrees,now stays around the 25-30 even in the hot weather we have had,but yes the turbo is the main restriction Hope this helps

    Tdi engine mounts

    I've literally had mine done this morning ,makes such a difference

    Tdi engine mounts

    Here you go :)6N0199167BF - £96.31+ Vat6N0199851AF- £62.59+ Vat6N0199543F - £61.06+ Vat Most of the cost is there mounts themselves,it's around a 2 hour job with a ramp Im guessing they are same for lupo and arose but you may want to double check

    Tdi engine mounts
