  1. Hey all . And anyone who can help . I have my Bby engine 1.4 16v Auto. She doesn't pull too well and I'm looking to try and get more out of her. So far I've rebuilt everything stock. Other than some tacky arch extensions and stickers I've done nothing to modify. Rather just rebuild. My question is what can be done to the BBY engine . Could I get more power out of this engine ? Or should I be looking into swapping for another engine if so would I have any luck with a golf gti engine and box. I know its probably a done and dusted subject and probably boring . But other than finding engine swaps I can't find anything about performance parts or upgrades . Any advice would be great because she's a bit like driving a wind up toy most days

    17' Polo GTI mods?

    New to this site so hoping I'm doing this right. I own a 2017 Polo Gti and am looking to do a few mods to make it different. Looking for some websites or any pointers / advice. Was going to upload a pic of my car but seems to be too large an image size...
  3. Afternoon all I have just recently purchased a 2007 9n3 GTI after owning a 6n2, the previous owner told me that he had the car remapped but cant remember the name of the garage or what map was put on it, all he said was the only option he had at the time was optimise it for standard fuel or high octane and he choose high octane, the guy suggested that it would bump up the circa to 200bhp after the remap. The issue I am currently having is the vehicle is currently fully standard apart from the remap that I am aware of, however when i drop the car into 4th gear and accelerate it feels as if it also takes a minute to realise i have put the foot down and seem likes it misfires before picking up speed, I have felt it once or twice in 3rd but it is almost everytime in 4th I feel it. Could this be related to the car being remapped or could it be something as simple as plugs? Also wondering what mods most people start off with, I have been told to do miltek exhuast, SFS oversize turbo intake pipe, forge throttle body hose, airtec fmic, forge 007 diverter valve, secondary air intake delete and to delete N valves. Is this the usual mods and if so what order do most people do them in and what are the benefits of these mods? Also any links to buy these mods + guides on doing them? Thanks

    My Red 6n2 Build Thread?

    Hi everyone! My name is Alex and im new to club polo, i drive a flash red 5 door 6n2 polo and i love it! ive had the car for a while now and have started to do some modifications to get it how i want it to look, i am on a student budget so coilovers will have to wait until i can save up - anyway, here is my build thread so far! So the little polo had been sat for years in a bush with a broken gearbox and plants growing all over it, until i came along and with help from friends and family we got her a new box and got her on the road. This is her stock on standard steelies - such a pretty little machine! First thing i new i wanted was wheels, so my dad got in touch with a mate and managed to get me some BBS RAs - from a mk2 golf gti! Then i decided to paint a few things. First i did my front grill black to make it stand out a bit more - i also painted my front splitter red to make the bumper look a bit smoother, what a difference that made! i got a hold of some new door speakers for free so i installed those with new grates - they sound way better than my standard ones i thought my front end could do with an added touch so i took the 16v badge from my engine cover and glued it to my grill - looking good! also got a guy on facebook to photoshop my car slammed! Its gonna look so good! hopefully i will remember to upload some more photos as the build progresses! Or simply follow me on instagram @alex.6n2 ??
  5. Hi everyone, Getting a bit bored of being extremely slow in my 1.0L 6N2 (Which yes is obvious it's going to be slow) but until I get my other car on the road, is there anything relatively easy or cheap to do to get a tiny bit extra hp? Obviously there's exhaust's, turbo etc. but just more simple stuff? Had an idea of a little re-map, but doubt anyone could/would do a 1.0L... Thought maybe air filters, although not sure how that would work as there inside the engine cover? Or maybe an EGR delete/blank? But not sure if that would really be worthwhile. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Options restoring 6n2 1.4

    Hey guys, long story short i bought my first car back to save it from going to the scrap for £100! W reg 1.4 6n2 with now over 100K on the clock and little wrong with it in all fairness except its been sat for a while! Want to get it road legal and tidy as possible before deciding whether to make it a track day car or keep it as mint as possible as a second car, maybe in the hope it is worth some money in 30 years time! I plan to do as much as possible myself but will be learning as i go! Anyway i have a ton of things i'm not sure on so any advice or answers are appreciated! I 'think' it is 16v on the basis that i'm sure i have seen a document which says it is the 75bhp version.. Anyway i can check this and what options does it give me for upgrading in the engine bay (i know i'm not going to see decent returns on maps, looking more fur just a decent induction kit probably) Currently doesn't start as the battery is dead, i have jumped it and ran it for 20mins but have to keep the revs up and as soon as you let them drop it idles for a couple of minutes and dies again, needing a jump to start, besides battery and alternator are there any other things i should check? Im going to get a cheap set of coilovers and want to refresh as much of the suspension, hubs and brakes as possible, i have seen people upgrade to the Gti hubs, are these a straight swap and where else can i go down this line? Also, which parts of the suspension should i refresh whilst changing all of this? As far as chasis stiffening what options do i have? Been looking for a rear strut (the one that goes in the boot when the rear is stripped out) but cant find one for my model? When i get the battery sorted im going to give it a good clean and service, sparks, filters, oil i am fine with, is it easy enough to change injectors and can i fit bigger injectors for better power? What else can i upgrade/refresh whilst doing this? Any other opinions/advice/comments welcome! Cheers!

    Match 2012 1.4 Mods?

    Hi Guys,I bought a polo Match 1.4 2012 (6r) (85ps) around 3 weeks ago and so far loving it!My only gripe with it is, well, its kinda gutless...and tbh, i have no idea where to start or what i should do to make it slightly faster (and tbh, make it accelerator slightly better)A few people have mentioned a ECU remap, is that possible with this car? as everywhere i have looked said they don't do it (at least not advertised on their websites)Also, any recommendations on styling, new alloys are defo on the cards!Thanks Guys

    POLO 6N2 1.0L

    Hi all! I have recently had a Polo 6n2 1.0l for my birthday its my first proper car as I also have a project fiat aswell. I have been brought up around cars so yes I'm a massive petrol head however not the normal stupid boy racing teenager yes I want to mod my car but not drive like an idiot! I know your probaly all going to say its pointless as it's only a 1.0l but I'm starting somewhere so can I have some modification ideas please! Already got my alloys ready and powder coated but not going on for a while as I'll be new to driving and don't want to risk scuffing them.
  9. Hi i have a 1.0 polo with the engine code HZ is there anything i can do to make it abit quicker? is a webber or bike carbs worth it? cant do a swap either as i wont be able to get insured on it.
  10. I saw this on the Club Lupo forum and thought it would be a good idea to start a thread like this here :) Basically all you have to do is list some cheap and easy mods for less than £10 It would be good to get some ideas and if you've done any of the mods you mention, post a picture!
  11. Hello, As the 9N is my first car, there are annoyingly a lot of restrictions when it comes to modifying my car. However I still want to mod it. One of the main things I want to change is the stereo. Want to swap it for a double din touchscreen but not sure if this would be an issue. My main focus is to put it on some coil overs and get some rota turbos or 3SDM 0.01's. Any suggestions as to what I should do in this situation? Or what mods I could get away with? Thanks! Tom.

    Polo 6R OEM interior bits

    Hi everyone, I'm looking at doing some OEM upgrades but the prices that VW are giving for retrofitted optional extras are pretty silly. Here are some things i am wanting to get fitted. - Polo SEL chrome front grille strip - Polo SEL front driver and passenger under seat drawers - Leather multifunction steering wheel I asked one of the guys at my work today if i can get the front driver and passenger under seat drawers retrofitted to my Match Edition and the guy mentioned it would come to £3-400 after fitting because the seats had to be taken out first. Anyone have any idea about this? I would assume the high price because the seats have airbags in them maybe. It's the same story with the steering wheel, it was a £120 optional on SEL and above models yet retrofitted the guy said would be in the region of £1200+
