Recommended Posts

Make: VW

Model: LUPO GTI 


TAX: You can buy your own 👍

Engine size: 1.8

Fuel type: Petrol

Description including modifications: 

Hi this is my Lupo 1.8t. It has been on the road now for a nearly a year after being garaged for 6 years with a broken timing belt. The plan was always to convert it to 20v power -this finally began in March last year and took 3 months to complete.


Here’s a list of work that was done:-

1.8t and 5 speed box from a mk4 Golf gti

Fitted with a Ko4 turbo with injectors

285bhp map

N80, N275, secondary air and second lambda removed

3” downpipe

New Front mount intercooler

New radiator with slim electric fan

Pipercross cone filter

Recirc to air dump valve 

Ford Focus brake master cylinder

Long diesel 5th gear -so 2800rpm at 70mph

Quaife LSD with APR bolts

Welded in Mk4 mounts

Driveshafts made by engineering firm

New disks and pads all round

New wishbones inc bushes

New anti roll bar bushes

New Toyo Proxy’s 

Stance coilovers 


Bad bits/work to be completed:-

Exhaust needs finishing currently 3” downpipe goes into original Gti exhaust. This needs a cat building into it.

Fault logged for removed sensors need mapping out -this should have been done when originally mapped but wasn’t (?!)

Lacquer peeling on roof. A few other age related marks but looks good with bright paintwork.


Mileage currently reads 56k as replacement clocks were fitted after they failed shortly after last mot. Mileage was 151k new clocks were 51k! I have the old clocks to prove. I was going to have it corrected but tbh prefer looking at the smaller number :)


The car is red. It has xenon lights with washers. Never had a/c so no extra switches that don’t work.

Interior is very good. Seats aren’t torn or sagging.


I use this daily and on a shitty 10 mile commute does 32mpg -thats a lot of stop starting. I drove to London and back in a single day and it returned 54mpg! 

Doesn’t overheat even in all that hot weather last year.
