Lupo is ready to start for this year, all mods are done! Here´s a pic of the engine! And another of Lupo down on his feet again...

Hi! I´m new on this forum but i have owned my Lupo for 3 years. I´m doing a 1,8t 20v conversion on my little green friend this winter and i´m nearly done, only exhaustsystem remaining. Pictures ca

Now Lupo is started finally! After a bit of trouble with air leakage around the injectors it now running fine and steady. The throttle response is much better then last years setup so it will be ni

cars amazing dude

Thanks!

Today i got a few things done to my Lupo.

I fitted my newly found "pop-out" rear windows, not the easiest thing to do but its nice to have them : )

I also got my Rieger roof spoiler, finally...

Cool as...

:yes:

cars so nice

Thanks!

:)

Thank you for that!

For now the Lupo is resting for this years season, soon snow is coming and you need something to do

in the garage so...

I´m doing an Audi S3 uppgrade to my AGU enginge with the works.

New KKK K04-022 turbo with S3/TT manifold, Big injectors from BAM, new custom downpipe with race cat. and im getting

rid of the front silencer i think.

All this need a more advanced Ecu, so i´m uppgrading my motronic 5.2 to the S3:s motronic 7.5 with a custom mapped

chip that should give me about ~300hp

Another thing that needed upgrading was the silly little riceboiler for Intercooler thats standard on mk4 gti turbos.

Now i´m installing a air/water chargecooler with a separate radiator in the front and a chargecoolerpump from a golf mk6.

That should do the trick for intercooling. :)

This summers dyno results with the AGU standard engine and a MTM stage 2 chip landed on 188whp and 300nm

Next season i´m aming to get about 260whp and 350nm, lets see if i get there...

New wheels are beeing refurbished, Porsche 928 S4 "gullideckel"

Going to paint them frostsilver metallic, a new VW colour, very light silver

woooooow dude this car just gets better n better

Thank you!

I do my best... : )

Today i got my new K04-turbo and all the new gaskets and stuff.

Also found a few water and oil pipes i been missing.

Tomorrow i´ll get a new timingbelt and waterpump, need to replace it before i put the engine in cause

to do it with the engine in place is absolutly impossible : )

A few pics then.

New BAM-injectors in place in my AGU big port intake.

Got a bit further in my project...

My new gearbox is finished, it´s a mix of a 0A4 from a Caddy -05 tdi and my old on from a Golf mk4 turbo (02J)

This may be the strongest combination for this type of gearbox and hopefully it will do.

Painted it black too... :)

I also got my new downpipe finished for my new turbo.

It´s 2,5" stainless with a small 100cell race cat.

Really tricky to build but it turned out real nice i think.

For now i´m waiting for my air/water intercooler to arrive from the states so i can continue with my build.

Already got all pipes and silicone hoses so now it´s just the intercooler thats missing.

Today i got my intercooler!

This weekend will be spent in the garage making some new pipes for my airfilter and a chargepipe from the intercooler

to the throttlebody.

Maybe i ´ll have som time over to put my downpipe in too...depends on what the girl says we should do :)

The new downpipe in place and heat wrapped, both pipes are done, heat shield for

the exhaustmanifold is in place.

For now i´m just waiting for a CNC macined intercooler mount and then i can start putting all

luving the car mate.

Your VW badge is how i did mine,great minds think alike lol

Must be like that : )

what gearbox mount did you use ??

I´ve used my own self made one, not hard to manufacture.

Just alot of thinking behind it...

Here´s a pic of it if it´s of any help.

Love the build. Was there a reason you went with this particular engine? Was it because of the cable throttle?

Only reason I ask is a BAM or ARY Engine have the throttle body on the opposite side of the plenum - IF you relocated your battery to the boot (ala GTi style) then you would have had more room to play with?

Love the work though ;)

I came by this engine for a bargain and the AGU is a big port engine with same rods and crank as BAM and APY (225 & 210hp)

So there is really more potential for more Hp with the AGU than for ex. a BAM that is small port.

I´m refitting a electronic throttle now when i´m changing to the motronic 7,5 from Audi S3.

I have an APY intake at home but relocating the battery is the easy way out i think, and fitting a big

front mount intercooler makes you lose the stelthiness cause it needs major cutting in the bumper.

+ the boot is already occupied by a bassbox painted Green and a amplifier....

I´m going for a factory built look in the enginebay.

Thanks for liking my work :)
