  1. Has anyone used a tuning chip on a 1.4 8v 6n (AEX)? There’s one advertised online for about £50 and states a gain of 6-8bhp with improved fuel economy, less flat spots etc. Trying to figure out if this is snake oil or will genuinely get a bit more fun out of my little engine. any thoughts?

    Hi, for sale is my 1994 VW Polo Mk2f. It has done 65k genuine miles (have some old Mot's and service receipts that can help verify this). I have 2 keys, one genuine, and the original VW handbook with the booklets inside. The car has been well maintained and is in extremely good condition for a 24 year old car! It has genuine BBS RA's off of a G40 that were professionally acid dipped and refurbished. This has been such a fun car to own ane drive. As my first car I couldn't have wished for anything more fun, reliable and unique to drive. I constantly got remarks about how nice the car was and how unique also. These are getting rare now and finding one with low mileage and clean bodywork is almost impossible! The car has already had the dreaded fuel tank recently so should be fine for at least a few years to come. The car had a full service including water pump and head gasket, coolant, brake fluid, cambelt, filters and oil in April 2017 along with brakes and suspension and the engine work. It also had a new clutch and clutch cable. It's had replacement wheel bearings, track rod ends and CV joints also. The car has had the following modifications: Full engine conversion from a standard 45hp 1.0l engine to a 1.3l MPI engine out of a Polo Mk2f GT. Standard these engines push out 75hp. I believe the engine is on sub 100k but I have no proof. I then bought a ported and polished cylinder head, believed to be on 60k miles (again no proof). I had the ported head sent off and had the head skimmed, pressure tested, valve guides ground down and valves reseated at Modus engineering in Tunbridge Wells. I then built up the engine with a fast road camshaft from Newman cams. The engine now has uprated Magnecor red HT leads, a Powerflow performance panel filter and a PoloPerformanceParts stage 2 ECU chip (7200rpm limiter increase). The car is believed to be pushing out at least 100hp which in a sub 800kg car is enough to have some fun! I do still have the standard ECU chip if you wish to go back to standard. Since the engine work the car has covered around 10k miles. To support the engine enhancements, I bought all new OE equivalent shock absorbers and coil springs all round. I also polybushed the front suspension components, and replaced the rubber anti-roll bar bushes with nylon blocks. This makes the car feel firm to drive and handles amazingly. The car has also had decent brakes all round. In the interior I have changed the door cards to incredibly rare ones with speaker pods built in. I have then fitted JBL 6.5" speakers with tweeters higher up the door card. This has been wired in properly with all the wires behind the dash and only a small piece is visible between the door and the dash. The seats are the dark grey ones with the rainbow coloured Volkswagen writing on them which I massively prefer to the Fox seats. I have changed the stereo to a Sony bluetooth music and possibly phone also. I have ran subwoofer wires to the back of the car which work fine, however the sub and amp are not included in the sale. The boot has a carpeted wooden false floor for supporting the subwoofer as the standard boot floor is very weak and couldn't really support anything. There is still the spare wheel underneath this. I have changed the clocks in the dash to the better GT clocks so a rev counter is there. I have also fitted a Momo leather gear stick and matching steering wheel with a genuine Momo boss. I also bought carpet floor mats as it didn't have any and I prefer them to the genuine rubber ones. I have also wired in a cigarette lighter so I could charge my phone or use a satnav while driving. On the exterior I have made a few subtle changes. I sprayed the VW grill badge and boot badges black, replaced the orange rear lights for genuine factory smoked lights, clear front and side indicators with chrome bulbs and now have body coloured door handle inserts. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money on this car and will be sad to see it go. Would make a perfect first car as it did for me, with cheap insurance even with no black box. The engine modification is not declared with the DVLA, however I do have the engine number saved so if you wish to officially register the change in engine capacity, you are able to. Sadly, there are a few minor issues and I will try to be as honest as possible (I am quite particular so some of these might not even affect you at all): - There is a small oil leak from the head. I believe it's where I put the head gasket on, some dirt might have got trapped and allows small amounts of oil to sweat out the engine. I have been topping the oil up every now and then. - There are some scrapes down the passenger side. I have tried to picture the damage to the passenger side as it's the worst area. Some small scrapes mainly on the door and rear arch. Also the drivers door has has a dent pulled out at some point. - There is some sort of sticker residue on the b pillers that I can't get off easily. (not put that much effort in. Just used autoglym tar and glue, not much happened so I left it alone.) - Where I fitted the clocks, the wiring loom on the back of them is wrong, so occasionally the coolant light flashes, when the coolant level and temperature are perfectly normal. Usually turning the car off and on again fixes this. - The sunroof leaked water and had been sealed up when I bought the car. I changed the seal and it still leaked water so I put enough sealant to stop water dripping on me while driving. If this bothers you, a new sunroof or new sealant applied neatly would work. If someone takes as good care as I and the previous owners have, it will have many years of life left and is starting to become an appreciating retro cool car. Currently it is running a PPP stainless 4 branch manifold and full PPP stainless decat exhaust system. If this is going with the car, an additional cost of £250 will need to be added on the the asking price of £1250. To arrange a viewing/test drive please TEXT 07383417526 (will NOT answer calls as I work unsociable hours and may be asleep or working when you call). Car will be available to drive away from the 10th August.

    afh ecu chipped by poloace


    - FR

  5. Hi, just wondering if there is an ecu on this as I’m looking at buying a 1989 mk2 polo s. Been quoted insurance for a black box but I don’t understand how they would fit it if there is no ecu? Thanks for any help.
  6. I have recently bought a second 1L 6n2.... this one is in beautiful condition with only 82000 miles But the previous owners father left the key in and flattened the battery and in trying to jump start he got the jump leads crossed and blew the ECU........... I have replaced the ECU with one I bought on ebay (same part no. 039 906 032 bc)(ALD engine) Now the car tries to start then cuts out immediately...... I presume this is a immoblisor/ECU pairing issue.... Can anyone please give me some guidance ?
  7. I have a 3 cylinder 12v 1.2 60 bhp polo I can't imagine there being a difference in the 3 cylinder 12v 70bhp polo apart from ECU so my question is can I swap the ECU and would that get my the bhp gain I know it isn't much but ?
  8. Hello again Club Polo! Quite a while ago I started a thread asking about what people would want to be present in a vehicle diagnostic on-board display (found here). Last time a lot of people were kind enough to give their opinoins on what it should contain, and I was hoping to ask how well what I have created (as A-level coursework) matches with these ideas. It would be great if anyone could leave a quick comment about whether my software seems: Customisable Capable of enough functions Intuitive Anything else! Here is some information about the software: Has a virtual dashboard- can display real-time data about the running of the vehicle- can read sensors from Engine RPM to Intake Manifold Absolute Pressure. The system is also customisable, so you can create your own layouts ans draw on your own dials however you want them arranged. Reads and decodes error codes. Reads error codes from the ECU using an ELM327. Then, uses a built-in database to diagnose the meaning of the error code, and also the exact location on the car (an addition to the data by me, would be more useful if this was a big project. I have only been able to do a few for my car). Graphing data. My software can also read sensors, and record the data over time. This is useful for viewing and comparing data streams. Can compare 4 PID sensors at once: Record 0-60 and 1/4 mile times, and store the records in a leaderboard file (which can be read from the software later). The data shown is just placeholder records. The software colours can also be customised to taste, hence the change in colours in some of the images above. I can give any details you would like to know. Thanks for your time!
  9. Anyone on here interested in getting Superchips to make a Bluefin remap device for the VW Polo 1.2 TSI (90 BHP, 2014 model)? Please don't post if you're not interested!
  10. Hi everyone, (first post!) I am creating a (very amateur) on-board display for cars that reads its data from the ECU via the OBDII port (As an A-Level project). It has the potential for a virtual dashboard, error code diagnosis, and a few other features depending on the car. I have been able to test some of the basic functions already on my Polo, so I know at least some of it works! Part of my project requirement is that I find out what people would want to be present in something like this. It would be awesome if any of you could share your feelings on the requirements you would want prioritised in something like this on my (terrible, sorry!) survey: http://goo.gl/forms/bpkcSkH3Bv Thanks for reading everyone, any feedback at all appreciated! (Sorry if I have posted in the wrong place, please correct me if I am wrong).
  11. Hi guys Am currently doing a conversion on my 6N2. Have got the engine loom (only engine loom, not bay loom). Have also got ecu, key with chips, immobiliser box etc. Just wondering if any of you guys could shed some light on whether I will get away with just replacing the engine loom and ecu? Or perhaps I need the bay loom also? I know the engine loom have some gefty plugs on it that look fairly universal. Cheers guys!
  12. Hi All I hope someone can help me with this problem Basically Have realised the past few days that when i turn the key so all the lights on the dash light up, my engine managment light does not appear like it should do, also when i connect a diagnostics tool it cannot find the ECU, why is this and how can i fix it? I own a 'X' Reg polo 6n2 if thats any help Please help
  13. Hello, I have a 1999 1600 aee kv with a Magneti Marelli 1AV ecu. It's a donor car. The engine is going in a Goka buggy. I have the entire wiring loom removed and the engine is sitting in the buggy. I've started loosely hooking up the loom to see what's what and if it still all works. I'm nowhere near starting the engine yet ( no fuel tank yet and the sump is off etc ). So what I would like to do is set up the engine management, fuelling, ignition etc in a bare bones way much like the banger racers might and manage lighting and such separately. So what can I cut out from the loom without upsetting the ecu? Another thing, my Haynes manual wiring diagrams don't distinguish between the Bosch ecu and the Magneti ecu are their pinouts the same? Any guidance appreciated, regards Richard.
  14. Hi i have a X reg 1.4 petrol 5dr polo (Blue) Can anybody tell me location of the emergancy fuel cut out switch PLEASE? "The car wont start & fuel pump isnt turning on when i turn ignition on?" (Its booked in for MOT at 2,30pm 9/1/14: (07790900988) please text or call very important THANKS
  15. Hey all, Could really do with a hand on identifying the relay located next to the fuel pump relay in the top right corner of a mk3's engine bay - had the car in at a garage and they couldn't source a replacement part so instead re-wired the 5 pin configuration to a 4 pin, this worked for 1 day but I've broken down again and I'm pretty sure the relay as a unit needs replacing - I've tried halfords equivalent's but nothing's working - anyone know what relay it is and where i can get hold of one? Thanks Rob
  16. hey guys, update on my polo. so I've just got my polo back and threw the vagcom i got off a friend at work, I'm not 100% sure how to use it but I've given it a go and i got the fault codes in the ecu... So here they are! And there is a few! 16684 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected 18047 TPS IMPLAUSIBLE SIGNAL. 18039 Acceleration Pedal Sensor (g79) Signal Too High 18042 Acceleration Pedal Sensor 2 (g185) Signal Too High 17850 EGR Valve Position Sensor Signal too high 17950 Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Actuator (G187): Implausible Signal 17952 Throttle Actuation Pot (G187): Signal too Large 17579 17579 - Angle Sensor 2 for Throttle Actuator (G188) Implausible Signal 16497 Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor 1 Circuit (G42): High Input 16490 Manifold / Barometric Pressure Sensor (G71) / (F96): Implausible Signal 16502 Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too High 18010 Power Supply B+ Terminal 30: Voltage too Low 17526 O2S Heating: B1 S2 Open Circuit 16727 Camshaft Position Sensor (G40): Signal too High 17524 Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor Heating: B1 S1: Open Circuit 16684 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected The fault codes were from the car, and I've googled what they are all for. And the o2 sensor wasnt connected when i done these tests! OR it was connected but not in the pipes, I'm not sure (sorry!) few questions that id like answered if possible- Theres a load in there about Throttle pedal sensor, shall i go ahead and get one of these? If i had a faulty ecu, would i get more codes? i tryed to delete the codes and it got rid of 5 but being in a rush i could'nt find out what ones it deleted. just wondering if they mean anything to anyone, if you haven't seen my last thread the problem is i have no throttle when i push the pedal to the deck! Thanks in advance for your help guys Kyle.
