  1. I've got a 93 1.3 aav spi genesis which is currently fitted with a 1.8 golf throttle body (with the 1.3 injector)and GT cam. Its a nippy thing and is better than standard, but I used to have a 1990 1.3 NZ engine with the MPI setup on it, and even in standard form I seem to recall the NZ feeling pokier. Reading about, the MPI setup off a NZ coupled with a GT cam seems to provide good results, but woult there be any benefit over my current setup? I kept the NZ engine with all its MPI setup, coil, ecu, and ecu loom and intended to swap the inlet manifold etc across. Looking at the loom there are a couple of differences in plugs where it meets the headlight loom etc but nothing that can't be sorted, just need to get hold of a 3 bar pump. Is it worth the faff or shall i just leave the AAV SPI setup in place? Cheers, Chris
  2. Hey all, After replacing the fuel filter on my '93 MK2f I noticed a fuelly smell stopping at lights recently. When I got back home i saw it was dripping petrol pretty heavily from the outlet end of the fuel filter. I popped a new, wider clamp on the junction but it looks like the old hose is splitting so there is now a delicate balance between enough clamping pressure to seal the leak without crushing the hose too much and propagating the crack further. I've got it to drip only occasionally but obviously this needs sorting asap. Looking at the parts list: https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1993-120/2/201-22001/#20A The hose in question is 20A - apparently a reducer pipe going from 8mm to 6mm. I can't for the life of me find one anywhere (admittedly haven't tried a dealership or TPS - both are kind of a pain to get to for me, the only TPS nearby is 'Trade Only'). However from the pictures of the part it looks a lot shorter than the pipe that is on my car at present - I suspect someone may have bodged their own thing in the past. So my question is - is there going to be any adverse difference to fuel flow if I make up my own reducer using a section of 6mm hose and 8mm hose joined by a 6-8mm hose joiner insert and some clamps? The pressure increase will be identical at the 6mm end but I guess flow could technically be worsened with the sudden change in diameter? The hose itself is quite hard to come by too it seems - however it looks identical to injector hosing (cotton reinforcement between a sandwich of rubber) rather than braided fuel hose. Will injector hosing do the job? Thanks for the help!
  3. Im looking at doing ITBs on my 1.3 AAV because it's gutless at the moment just wondering what throttle bodies are the best to go for? Iv seen some GSXR R7 600 ones, will they be the right size to run my engine and what else will I need with them? Any information will help really
  4. Hi everyone, Pleased to be here and this is my first post, so "hi"! I joined today as I bought a 91 Polo Breadvan with some issues. It was very inexpensive (£80 with 6 months MOT) and I fancy trying to do the work myself. I also own a 73 Beetle that is on the road (tucked up in the garage for winter) and also a rolling resto. I wondered if anyone has a step-by-step guide to changing the head gasket on a AAV engine? Or can point me in the right direction for one? (no Haynes manual advice please) Pictures would be really helpful too. Thanks very much in advance and I look forward to getting to know you all. Will
  5. Hi, Bit of an odd one. I changed my thermostat housing today as the old one was leaking. I fitted a new thermostat at the same time. I filled the expansion tank up with coolant etc and ran up to temp for 10 mind with the heaters on hot. Now when I’m driving my engine temp seems to sit far too high. It used to sit around the 70 mark and rise up when still. Now it seems to sit a little over 90 when up to speed and up around 100 when I’m “town driving” Anyone got any ideas as to what I’ve dkne wrong? First pic shows where it tries to settle and second pic shows where it sits at lower speeds. I’ve hard wired the fan to a switch in the cabin as before it used to not kick in until 100-105, whereas now it struggles to sit at 90 even with the heaters on hot AND the fan running on stage 2. Gotta do 300 miles in one go next week so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Just curious if anyone knows or tried them to put a AAV head on a AEE bottom end and it would work with the AAV loom. Pretty much my block isn't in the best condition after my head gasket failed so looking at another option.
  7. I was planning on getting an abd lump in my polo. But i have no papers for it, so that might get me in trouble when i want to have it checked to get 1.4 on paper. (For insurance etc) A friend of mine said: why don't we put the crank, rods and pistons of the abd in the aav lump? So from the outside it looks like a aav, but from the inside it is a 1.4 abd? Is that possible? Does it fit? In Uk the abd swap is much more common than it is in Holland, so i hope someone has more info about it. Greetings from Holland.
