Lupo 20v turbo, sounds like a good idea

Recommended Posts

Progress.

 

Quick text but lots of pics. Vac hoses and coolant hoses ran. Radiator won’t fit. Lower mount bridges while I get one CNCd from a friend. New oil pump and sump, smf visible. Wiring next, got loads of plugs left for wires that go to the fuse box in the car.

 

Got a bad feeling the dash is gonna have to come out yet again to wire it up correctly.

 

Front clip and slam panel on.

 

50p and sikaflex works as a nice hose stopper

 

Enjoy!

So, jobs on.

 

All main wiring now done and dusted. I have diagnostics wired up. There’s about five feeds to the clocks I need to figure out but for now.. I’m there and!

 

It started!

 

Yeah alright it was for two seconds and there is no coolant in it, and the immobiliser kicked it off..

 

So anyway I smashed in some more jobs whilst the ECU was having its immob removed and redundant sensors mapped out.

Harnesses are now bolted in properly with spreader plates and the battery to boot is finished. Added some more cable tidies and the front clip and headlights are on. Power steering reservoir is actually fitted properly.

 

Downpipe arrived and as it’s off a polo conversion it’s a squidgen too short. Basically need someone to cut it and weld in another section about 2.5 inches long.

 

Really all that’s left is a radiator and two driveshafts.

 

 

Saved the best till last.. ECU has been programmed to up boost from 7psi to 16psi with progressive boost in the first two gears (50 percent and 75 percent). Little bit of overrun should make it pop a bit for the laddiiessss

This is surely going to be mental levels of fun.

 

Be interesting to see how it handles.

I know. The skinny tyres need to come off, I know that. They can stay for the time being but intention is to find wheels that are as wide as possible to increase grip. Probably need arch extensions to keep them legal and rock hard coilovers.

 

Hoping to get the pedal issue sorted, I’ll have to double check the wiring. I was positive I had it right but you know how these things work. It’s only six wires to the ecu direct from the pedal. We shall see tomorrow.

Awesome, can't be long until this is on the road? Looks frightening!

The wife asked the other day what the point is, she wasn’t Imimpressed when I said it was to do burnouts outside her mates house.

 

Then I did my best turbo-engine Rev-overrun noise for an hour

This is several levels of epic, and I cannot wait to see it driving.

 

Looking at the inlet manifold, will having an intake pipe *or* an offside headlamp be a choice you have to make?

There’s just enough room to fire a 90 degree bend down to the intwrcooler I let :)

So it turns out I can’t fucking count to six and had massively messed up my pinouts on the accelerator pedal.

 

After much chew.. it runs and revs. First fully successful start:

I’ve got a downpipe to fit however it’s from a polo 6b conversion that got shitcanned. They don’t have a front subframe and as such it needs to be lengthened about an inch and a half. Gonna have to go pay some stainless exhaust place to do it. Then it’s 3” straight through to cherrybomb off a mk4 cortina..

Few pics from today.

 

Finally got the power steering sorted, stupidly I had lost the bracket the reservoir sits on. Got an new one and it’s all plumbed in.

 

Boost and volt gauges in and awaiting an oil pressure one.

 

Tidying up the bay with cable tidies. Stickers may or may not come off but I’m tempted to join a mate doing hill climb and autotest in it.

Holy shit the shiny stuff is going on.

 

Added the pic of the inlet hose to answer the question above, just routing front mount pipe work today.

 

Should really find a radiator that fits.

 

From today! Running out of bay room.

Here’s a ‘look at this shit’ update. Ps fluid in after a leak. Coolant in after a leak. Now finally nice and tight. Coolant gauge works too, surprised me.

 

Front mount on. Most of the boost hoses done and routed after much hassle.

 

Now need a map sensor mount but they’re bloody £30!

 

Map sensor mount, lambda, Downpipe needs lengthening an inch or so and driveshafts are left. ce03d16b6d0f932a636dabb81058152e.jpged61f85032a222720de0669254fd7cb0.jpge9431609953842bfa0ce1ac12187f6f1.jpgcf960ed95402d9f2a86e28d64a47f7e8.jpg

Parts is keeping me from finishing now. 100mm driveshaft cups should be here in a few days, also need a slimline fan if anyone has one?

 

Put some nonskid in the footwells and an engine cover, and one driveshaft done.

I missed a few updates, well happy to see this is so close to finished!

Need to get my finger out. The downpipe needs extending a bit so it’s lower, the other driveshaft I can do myself.

 

Slimline fan and it should be driveable.

 

Lying I actually need a lambda too!

 

So close. It’s been 18 months now lol I’ve been lazy
