moshiaiz posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi, I have a Polo 6R 2013 with 1.2 TSI 105HP (CBZ) engine. I have a weird knocking/ticking noise especially on cold starts. It started around 2016... about 2-3 years after getting the car. You can hear it here between 0:03-0:04: Sometimes it lasts for around 1-2 seconds but not more than that. Anyone knows what it is? Thanks.
Hi folks, iv just joined the forum today and have recently placed an order for a 1.2 Tsi R line Polo from a dealership nearby. I'm looking to do some straight forward mods that give the car a little more oomph ! On my mind i have, a remap, air filter/intake mod and exhaust mod, just wondering if anyone has any experience deleting the resonator from the standard exhaust do you have any tips ? Or videos ? ... I'm worried it might be a waste of time or Drone while driving ? The intake and remap mods will come later. Weary of manufactures warranty Cheers
Hi Guys! Had my R-line for over a year now and its a great car to drive! It's the 1.2 TSI version and for a small turbo charged engine, it's very nippy! Since owning it, i've had such a blast and it's been excitement everyday... looking forward to driving to work and coming home from work.. best part of the day lol. First day i got it at the show room! Anyway since owning the car, as usual i can't help myself but fiddle with the car as it's not really yours until you make it yours! I started by trying a few performance mods which included Forge Motorsport Dump valve and a oversized pod filter.. These made the car run absolutely crap and constantly brought up lights on the dash. It also reduced power i found and in the end, i found running stock to be the most efficient. But of course i wanted more power so i looked around the net for a few companies to do remaps but since the car was still fairly new, there wasn't much available. However over on another forum i found big fish tuning run by a guy called John who sorted me out with a remap. Power hike and torque was increased to about 138bhp but dont have a RR printout as i got the RR done elsewhere. The car now feels much more aggressive in 1st and 2nd and overtaking on the motorway is a doddle even in 6th gear. Usual upgrades with the 6R including: GTI top and bottom grills, Bonnet bra, LED side lights and Fogs, Plastidip wind mirror caps, Eibach Pro Sport springs 30mm/40mm drop, Euro Sport Exhaust system (Backbox with mid section removed) The exhaust system sound awesome! It's probably one of the best things i enjoy hearing everyday. Even though its not a DSG gearbox, if you change gear in certain RPM's and especially on overboost the car will pop and let off a DSG fart lol. I've done a few videos which can be seen here: Videos recorded with GoPro Hero 3: http://youtu.be/debROksu8Cs?list=UUtdvVCQLogjaDV0JEQElfJg http://youtu.be/hsq51LLZurM?list=UUtdvVCQLogjaDV0JEQElfJg Need to do a new video soon as i've since had a tune to take into a count of the exhaust system. And finally my latest purchase was a set of Replica VW Projector Bi-Xenon headlights with 6000K HID's. Next i'm thinking maybe a new set of wheels.. i did see some VW motorsport alloys in black for sale awhile back but unsure if i want to go for 17's.
Long time since I've been on here so thought i'd make a post as a few people have requested it. So this is my 3rd Polo. Previously i've had a 1.4 100bhp 6N2, a 9N3 GTI, and now this, my 1.2 TSI 6R (or the charged lawnmower as it gets called). Bought standard 3 years old, and wasn't long before i started working on it. First of all, coilovers with adjustable droplinks. Then a few little exterior touches (Fogs, splitter)and a old set of wheels i had (MAM MT1): Then had some crazy idea of running this static. Didnt last long before i destroyed the rear brake lines, so had to raise it up That was pretty much it for the outside. Next was onto the engine V V V
