6n2 1.8T K04 GTI

Recommended Posts

Hi some of you might remember this car, it was originally Jamie1.8tpologti's. I bought it beginning of May last year as I've always wanted a 1.8t ever since I saw this very car when Jamie had it all those years ago. The spec is BAM 1.8t engine (done by TSR), mk3 golf tdi gearbox, custom 3" turbo back exhaust system, custom drive shafts, R-tec map running 270bhp, Hi-Spec 4 pot front brakes, Bilstein coilovers, Rota Grid alloys, Porsche rep front seats and false floor rear and smoothed bumpers. This is how it looked when I bought it.

The main reason I bought it :D

The wheels weren't my thing at all so decided to get rid and replace them with a set of OZ superturismo's, got these off ebay for £200.

Tried them with the slicks just out of impatient-ness. Sold the slicks on and replaced them with a set of Nankang NS-2R's as the yokohama s-drives on the Rota's were just not giving enough grip.

We had a club stand at CumbriaVag so wanted to tidy up the engine. Top is before and bottom is after.

Painted the wheels black soon after CumbriaVag and that was that for 2016. Took it off the road over the winter, put it in my garage to start a on few things that had been bugging me. Like the intercooler pipe sticking out the driver's side grill, rusty wings, and a general tidy up.
 
So started on the intercooler pipe, stripped the front end down including the slam panel. Removed the a/c radiator and pipes etc to free up some room to move the intercooler back 20mm. Cut the cooler pipe down and re-welded which gave me the room needed to have the pipe fully behind the grill. Also removed the wings and replaced them.

Got a mate who runs a sign writing company and he sent me this through. I'm feeling the motorsport look and tbf the car is quick enough to pull it off. Taking inspiration form the Mercedes F1 team livery. It's not going to look exactly like this (don't really fancy a 'Brazzers' sun strip :lol:

Still got front splitter to make, sides to make and figure out rear spoiler options and give it a good clean. Back on the road 1st May.

I remember Jamie having this...

I was hoping you'd keep this as a sleeper. Good to see you're looking after it!

I know what you mean but on the other hand if people think it's all mouth and no trousers when trying to have a play then it'll be a double bluff ;)

So did you sell this? 

I still want to convert my 6n2, but i don't know if it's a day dream. How did you actually find this car on the road? Are they as exciting as they look to be? 

Anyhow, sweet car, would have been cool to see the livery on.
