hi guys, not been a polo owner for very long but recently got hold of 2 coupe gt's. this will most likely be a slow build thread as I'm trying to fit in working on them around other projects.post-922626-0-13902400-1458343214_thumb.post-922626-0-00154800-1458343304_thumb.

neither of them are in too bad shape just need some tlc.... :paranoid:

Just shows if you know where to find them, they can still be had for no added scene tax. Guarantee if that green one was owned by one of the young guys on mk1-3 Facebook group then it would have been up for £1300 instead!

so anyway had a look at both cars and found the green one is pretty rotten :-( so i decided to get the black one running which proved to be a problem because of really old fuel and blocked injectors and i also found the tank leaking in the usual place. luckily the green one runs well and has a new...ish tank so i stripped the fuel system to take home to fit to the black polo.

So anyway, long time since last update, black polo is running sweet. Got a 60/40 kit and fitted it.

Took your advice and went for a 270, should hopefully give some good gains!

Your so lucky to find 2 gt's like that! I've been wanting a coupe for ages now (house improvements keep getting in the way) but scene tax makes them silly money for what they are!

Finally got round to fitting the stage 2 Subframe and my head + 270/270 cam. what a difference they have made. still need to get a chip for all the engine mods but even without its made such a difference.

Chip seems to work a treat, ignition timing could do with some fine tuning. no I never got round to it sadly, it was a friends and he ended up selling it shortly after I got the polo.

Had the polo out yesterday and Kiran_182 came over with his and we messed about with my ignition timing, pulls so much better. Kiran also told me to give it a clean and add some more pictures so heres a few.
