mk2f polo coupe

Recommended Posts

broady2188

this is my first time using this forum and got asked to make a thread on my build.
 

now some of you more experienced guys I hope will guide my through some of the modification, I bought a mk2f polo from a friend and all the extra's that he was going to use for his build, but i've taken it over and added many more parts.

so quick go through of all the parts I have here.

mk2f polo coupe
1.4 abd block with gt head
m65 eaton charger with 62mm pulley
water meth injection
bmw 330d intercooler
stage 2 subframe
corbaeu bucket seats
4 point harness
safety devices multipoint roll cage
made my own short shifter (similar to CAE)
mocal 13 row oil cooler with thermostat
battery relocated to the boot
4-2-1 branch manifold
lower top mounts
80mm front drop
60mm rear drop
adjustable shocks
TA technics




I've stripped the car this week and loosely fitted the roll cage ready for welding the floor supports in this weekend amongst getting the seat brackets welded in, only 2 patch of rust to be fixed where the old battery area used to be, (guessing battery acid ate away at it at some point).

the car needs resparying at some point and been looking at house of colour 'root beer candy'  with added flake. but that's on hold now due to a holiday to south Africa next year now.

looking forward to this build and want to do as much as I can myself, which isn't always easy as I'm not a mechanic ( chef by trade).

ill try up load some pics of the build so far and any tips/info welcome, will mostly be what ecu, fueling to use.

That's quite an ingredients list. Just add water meth...

 

For track not road I assume.

 

Throttle bodies and injection, custom charger plenum, dbilas? DCOE inlet manifold, boost retarding ignition?

I'd say omex-600 or 710 ECU and several hours on rolling road.

 

Maybe some bigger brakes?

Forged pistons and compression lowering if want over 190bhp.

The meth will just be a single port after the intercooler mostly regarding cooling more than anything,  at will still be road legal but will be set-up more as a track car, some good info for me to look into and defiantly need brakes, I believe it has better carriers but again it's something I need to look at.

 

the engine will hopefully get a full rebuild so can go down the forged, ported/polish route hopefully next year.

 

i have time to play and build this car so it's a long term project just for fun and keep me busy.
