Now finally Lupo is out from this winters rest.

Started my day with emptying the fueltank from gas and then poured some E85 in it.

Then my brother came to the garage and gave the Lupo som updated software for E85 and 500cc injectors.

And finally it was time for start!

It started without trouble and ran smooth as if it had never been touched from last season.

Time for a test drive!

A little changes in boost settings and now it runs 1,4bar from about 3000rpm to the limit.

Feels alot better than last season and my little upgrades has paid of, the Lupo now have around 300hp : )

Heres a pic from today!

Thats a lot of bhp for a Lupo!!

Dahlback reminds of some good old videos of extremely fast cars.

There is'nt much going on this winter with the Lupo...

Have got som polyflex bushes lying arond at home but

I'll fit theme in the spring when the car comes out of it's

resting place for the winter season...

I did do an upgrade before putting the car to wintersleep..

I fitted cruisecontrol!

Lupo never ever came with cruisecontrol!

I used a lever from an old golf mk3 and made it fit : )

It works really well anyway!
