    Polo Coupe.... 0-60 in 7.929 & 16.410 quarter mile

    Post by paulshears on Thu Apr 03, 2008 5:43 am

    my gold mk1 Golf needed to be finished for the PPC Magazine Challenge at York Raceway on 14th June........i've hardly started on it Embarassed

    i should never had sold the orange Polo Coupe Sad

    so.....i've bought our Matt's Polo Coupe



    it already has some performance mod's on it

    full stainless Powerflow exhaust,
    Lowered 40mm,
    Gas shocks,
    Vented front disks & Golf GTI calipers,

    plan is to fit my 1.4 ABD/GT motor to it, strip the interior and fit my bucket seats Wink

    Yup, only a ickle bit though. Didn't think it was on the way there, but on the way back it was a struggle keeping up! Especially when it started to rain. Gave up as my wipers dont do sh*t!

    Gotta get some more ponies...

    been thinking about buying it for a while

    actually works out cheaper buying Matt's car than buying a cheap standard car & modding it (cos i'd have to buy shocks, springs, exhaust & re-con my calipers)

    i know it's a good car too, cos it sailed through the last couple of MOT's

    Engine swap

    Cleaned the flakey paint off the block



    Pulled the head & box off my 1.4 ABD/GT engine (our Matts replacing the valve stem oil seals & polish/port matching the head for me)



    Cleaned & painted the gearbox



    The car currently looks like this

    16th April.......does'nt look like i've got very far



    i've spent the past couple of nights sorting the block/box cleaned, painted & stuck back together



    back in the car



    got the main fuel pump changed to a higher pressure GT spec one.......rubbish job, petrol all down my arms

    Matt's been porting, port matching & polishing the exhaust ports of my cylinder head.........he's grinding the valves in tomorrow and taking it to get skimmed & cleaned tomorrow

    fitting new valve stem oil seals in the head......should solve the smoke from the exhaust in the upper end of the rev range
