6n2 1.8T K04 GTI

Recommended Posts

Hi some of you might remember this car, it was originally Jamie1.8tpologti's. I bought it beginning of May last year as I've always wanted a 1.8t ever since I saw this very car when Jamie had it all those years ago. The spec is BAM 1.8t engine (done by TSR), mk3 golf tdi gearbox, custom 3" turbo back exhaust system, custom drive shafts, R-tec map running 270bhp, Hi-Spec 4 pot front brakes, Bilstein coilovers, Rota Grid alloys, Porsche rep front seats and false floor rear and smoothed bumpers. This is how it looked when I bought it.

The main reason I bought it :D

The wheels weren't my thing at all so decided to get rid and replace them with a set of OZ superturismo's, got these off ebay for £200.

Tried them with the slicks just out of impatient-ness. Sold the slicks on and replaced them with a set of Nankang NS-2R's as the yokohama s-drives on the Rota's were just not giving enough grip.

We had a club stand at CumbriaVag so wanted to tidy up the engine. Top is before and bottom is after.

Painted the wheels black soon after CumbriaVag and that was that for 2016. Took it off the road over the winter, put it in my garage to start a on few things that had been bugging me. Like the intercooler pipe sticking out the driver's side grill, rusty wings, and a general tidy up.
 
So started on the intercooler pipe, stripped the front end down including the slam panel. Removed the a/c radiator and pipes etc to free up some room to move the intercooler back 20mm. Cut the cooler pipe down and re-welded which gave me the room needed to have the pipe fully behind the grill. Also removed the wings and replaced them.

Got a mate who runs a sign writing company and he sent me this through. I'm feeling the motorsport look and tbf the car is quick enough to pull it off. Taking inspiration form the Mercedes F1 team livery. It's not going to look exactly like this (don't really fancy a 'Brazzers' sun strip :lol:

Still got front splitter to make, sides to make and figure out rear spoiler options and give it a good clean. Back on the road 1st May.

I remember Jamie having this...

I was hoping you'd keep this as a sleeper. Good to see you're looking after it!

I know what you mean but on the other hand if people think it's all mouth and no trousers when trying to have a play then it'll be a double bluff ;)

So did you sell this? 

I still want to convert my 6n2, but i don't know if it's a day dream. How did you actually find this car on the road? Are they as exciting as they look to be? 

Anyhow, sweet car, would have been cool to see the livery on.

      Hi,
       
      The two Polos in question are:
       
      1. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AHW engine, cable throttle - okay working, probably a bit under-powered, will check cylinder compression
      - normal AC
      - 2 doors
      2. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AUA engine, wired throttle - engine is bust - overheated because of oil pump failure.
      - climatronic
      - 4 doors
       
      I'm still considering other options, but the best at the moment seems to be to combine the two into 1 fully working Polo, with the 4 doors Polo as the base.
       
      The main question is: "Is the engine swap plug and play?" - this concerns only the engine unit, with everything immediately attached - water pump, pulleys, alternator. This is to put the AHW engine instead of the AUA. Should I swap it with the gearbox or there is no need?

      Hi
       
      I am looking for a replacement gearbox for a 2001 6N2 1.4 16V.
       
      Any assistance much appreciated.
       
       
      Cheers

      Hello
       
      Haven't been on here for sometime, but thought I should as just purchased a 51 plate GTI with only 37,000 miles on the clock, has leather, rain sensor wipers, sunroof, and most important full service history.

      Originally I joined as I got a 1.4 16v coupe 6n2 as a backup car. I have a 3.0tdi A6 that I like to tinker with a lot, and still have a ton of electrical issues with it, the most significant being related to a manual to automatic transmission swap... so I do tend to keep it at a shop a lot. Also it did proove not much practical for a daily use.
       
      But as my mother’s 6n2 gave birth to all of its fluids, I decided to give her mine and get something better, as I was already looking at a possible engine swap for the 1.4...
       
      As a result I got a pretty sweet GTI. I did’t expect much. Got it from a dealer, which was already a bad omen , but the car was in a surprisingly good visual condition. It hasn’t been driven since at least an year (January 2017) with less then 7000km done in 2016. I got it on 138 000km, and its last history is from Switzerland from 2013 at 118 000km. It is kinda believable that it could have done only 20 000km in 2014 and 2015, but here rewinding the milage is still very much a thing. Still it looks like being close to that arlt least.
       
      The car had its gearbox repaired while at the dealer. Everything else was in order. Of course for the first several days there were no brakes , until the calipers remembered how to work. I got it from another city, so it wasn’t the smartest idea to bring it home directly after sitting for so long, but it performed flawlessly.
       
      Of course by Murphy’s law, exactly on the next day, I got the ABS lamp on, and a bit after that the Engine check on also. Thse were because of a rear light speed sensor and a misfire in cilinder 1. Alongside the standart service, I changed the spark plugs, the spark leads and the spark coil and the speed sensor. But still occasionally (I think when I sit in traffic) it does log a misfire, which I can’t even register. Will do a compression check next year before installing the LPG system, as nothing else looks suspicious.
       
      The only other issue it had was that the left window didn’t work, while from the driver’s door I could only open the passenger’s windows with both positions of the switch. Also the central locking button on the door could lock the car but couldn’t unlock it. Today I repaired it by fixing a cut wire between the door and the body.
       
      What I plan to do with the car:
       
      - repaint the red parts - the current paint job is ridiculous and I’m not sure I like that it is not metallic. 
      - repaint the calipers - also pretty badly done
      - reupholster the steering wheel with red stiches and reupholster the ceiling
      - update all the speakers (some are torn)
      - get 14” alloys as it came with 15” ones, and my winter tires are 14... Will keep the 15 for the summer 
      - soundproofing - that is a must. Not only for better audio, but also for the rare cases where I need to get it on the highway... It really lacks a 6th gear 
      - refurbish the headlights and get new blinkers
      - fix the hooks for the rear seats, because, of course, they both tore the moment I tried them
      - at some point I’ll add rear speakrs and an amp
      - as mentioned above - LPG system with lightweight bottle.
