  1. hi guys, I've been a member on the forum for a while now and have owned a few Polo's but have never made a build thread so i thought it was about time i got started. I currently have a 1993 Tornado red 1 litre Coupe and the story goes.... i used to own this car and bought it when it was standard and drove it for a while but then decided it was too old and i wanted something new so i sold it to a friend and bought a 9n off another, had that for a while but then missed my mk2/f and just wanted something older again so i ended up doing a part-ex on another mk2/f that came lowered with ats classics and 8 spoke wellers. so i fell back in love with the mk2/f polo again and this time decided to do some work myself, fitted some camber shims and gave it more stretch etc... then got to the stage where i needed something faster so ripped the engine out and started smoothing the bay then found a hole in the battery tray and the front left sill (F**k Speedbumps) ohh and the back arches were cut off to fit my J.d.m arches hah. anyway gave up on it and bought myself a civic as I'm sure youll all love to hear , drove that for a while then heard that my polo was up for sale again so bought it back and i plan on never selling it again !!! since buying it back I've done a few bits, mostly what had been done to my previouse one with the parts from it, fitted corrado VR6 front seats removed the rear seats OMP Wheel and Boss fitted a glove box clear indicators wooden beetle gearknob beetle basket stainless manifold new fuel tank G40 exhaust G40 taillights Then the head gasket went!!!!!!!! :@:@:@:@ so..... engine out again and i thought i might aswell do the suspension and breaks at the same time too THE ENGINE turns out the engine was just gubbed so i removed it completely and used the aau from my previose polo, Rebuilt and fitted a 1.3 Gt head and cam, stainless manifold, stainless centre section and back box, new water pump, timing belt, gaskets, oil filter, spark plugs, coolant, etc.. cbr 600 bike carbs (still need wired up!! ) THE BRAKES being a 1 litre coupe fox the breaks were PISHHH so theyve been removed and replaced with 239x20mm vented G40 Discks and pads (mintex) VWII calipers, VWI carriers and Hell Braided hoses up front, with new Drums shoes and cylinders on the back with camber shims too and new wheel bearings all round. THE SUSPENSION I was running a 60mm kit on my old polo but that wasnt low enough, but lucky for me this polo came with a 80mm kit (wich i bought the first time i owned it but never fitted ), this still wasnt low enough so I've recently bought and fitted some TA Technix coilovers and now sits how i like it THE WHEELS Currently running 13"x7j front and 13"x8j rear Weller 8 spoke wheels (mad offset ) with 165/55/13 Nankang tyres, plenty camber and stretch on the back and rolled arches to get them under So thats what has been done, its not nuch of a build thread but i feel it will just be eaisier to say whats been done and then ill try upload some pics of the stuff thats been done and how it looks for those who are interested and ill try continue the thread from here and keep it upto date with pictures and posts WHATS NEXT finish covering my door cards finish rolling the arches more new tie rod assembly polly bush kit (maxRPM.de) Powerflex Black seriese Inner bushings Camber adjustable top mounts (maxRPM.de) braided fuel lines get the bike carbs wired up and setup properly make a subframe and sump guard/belly pan underseal the car toyo r888 or yoko semi slicks. thats whats been done uptill now and ill get some pics of my car when i bought it and my previous polos up soon and then keep you upto date with my progress and anything new, look forward to hearing what you guys think

    '94 Mk2 Fox Coupé

    After having my driving licence for about 14 years, I thought it was maybe time to get around to buying a car. Registered in mid '94 it must be one of the last Mk2s. It lived all its life in North-East England til I brought it up to the granite city. 50k miles. The paint is a respray by the previous owner, it's quite nice if you don't look too closely. Runs and drives alright, so I have no plans to do any serious work on the car for the time being, just trying to keep it in shape and replace things as they wear out. Shout out to anyone else running a mk2 in Aberdeen/NE, I know you're out there...

    MK2F AAU Tuning

    Hey guys so the engine swap to the 1.6 AEE engine has gone on hold as my girlfriend can't afford the insurance price with that engine swap done so we are looking to get a little more power out of the little 1.0 AAU now i have some parts kicking about from my old MK2F which was a 1.3 AAV but i changed engine for 3F. Parts i have laying arround are: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.3 AAV Wiring loom 1.3 AAV Air Doughnut 1.3 AAV 5spd Gearbox 1.4 ABD SPI Throttle body 1.4 ABD Induction elbow (maybe a little overkill) 1.8 ADZ SPI Throttle Body 1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter (whole ADZ engine & wiring loom) Im thinking maybe: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.4 ABD / 1.8 ADZ SPI throttle body 1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter Think that should give it a little more power under the pedal? got quite a bit like i said so if anyone else knows of a way to get a little more power out of the AAU with the parts i have listed above please let me know
  4. Hi everyone, I have a 1994 VW Polo AAU and I've just replaced the distributor. I wanted to check the engine timing was OK. With a timing light I manage to take some photos. In my Haynes manual it has a very different diagram for engine timing points which I think refers to a different engine code. Could I check with you guys that it looks OK and its in the correct position? Thanks for your help!

    Engine number

    I just bought a 86c bread van it used to be a 1.05 (AAU) but it now has a 1.3GT (3F) engine in it but I dunno where the engine number is on the engine for sake of changing it on V5 plus I don't know where am looking to confirm its a 3F engine. And is there anyway on knowing the year of the engine for sake of emissions testing ? All the spi inlet and ecu is still on it from the 1.05 all just run the engine on that for its mot then all be putting bike carbs on it ect. Its been nearly 10 year since I had an 86c with a 3F engine, pics are of what I just bought in the attachments.

    AAU to AAV Swap

    Hey guys, I've just bought another polo for spares with a 1.3 AAV engine in it, its only going to cost me an extra £20 on insurance to put the 1.3 engine in my current shell. So what I want to know is, can I just swap the engines over and keep my 4speed gearbox in my current shell, or would I need to swap more over? Thanks in advance

    Tuning of AAU engine.

    Hi guys. My name is Alexander and from Bulgaria. I have Polo 86c 2F, AAU engine. I love my car, I mean I want to upgrade the breaks, front 256mm ventilated, rear 239 ventilated disks. But I think to upgrade the engine, because, first I want to put a AFH, but its to many work for me... Electronics, costly maintenance. Secondary I want to put a ABU engine. Quite a bit of work, but I have to pass TECHNOTEST to register the car with the new engine and it's too complicated, but I would do it if you really have nothing to do on my engine. I read many topics in this forum. AAU engine with 3F head, pistons, camshaft and bike carbs... I want all of this, except, the carbs... I want to stay with single point injection. The whole idea of the upgrade is to allow the car to move without gasping with 4 people. That is, to have a good walking away, I do not want to do racing, I would not bother with this engine if it would be my goal. First: I'm sorry for my English.. Second: I am open to hear your ideas for upgrades on this engine as seeking good fuel consumption. Here is my car.
